There are so many changes that women experience when they have a baby. Our bodies change(all the way from the tips of our fingers down to our toes!), our skin changes, our hair changes, our mouth and our eyesight and our sense of smell can change too. It’s insane! Hormones are totally crazy. I’m currently 7 months postpartum with baby number three, and once again, I’m in the season of postpartum hair loss.
I have gone through this three times now and it still completely shocks me every time I wash my hair or run my fingers through it. Hair is falling out like crazy. CRAZY.
I haven’t learned of a cure all solution yet, but have found a few things that might be worth trying if you are dealing with postpartum hair loss too and want to do something other than just ride it out and/or cut bangs (which is what I have done the two previous times before!)
If you are into essential oils, you can mix together your very own Mermaid Spray!
10 drops each of lavender, cedarwood, rosemary, along with 2 squirts witch hazel, a pinch of epsom salt, and fill the rest with distilled water.
Additionally, you can add Rosemary Essential oil to your next YL order (though I have read to be careful with this particular oil if you are nursing! So use at your discretion) along with Sulfurzyme supplements.
Collagen! (I’m obviously not a Dr. so if you’re concerned, be sure to ask your Dr. before adding this into your daily routine!)
Some of the brands recommended to me have been:
Try switching up your part- and try out a middle one!
Brush your hair as little as possible.
Wash your hair less frequently(though, if I washed my hair less frequently than I already do- I’ll start to have a Pigpen dust cloud following me around) and don’t brush it while it is wet!
