After giving birth, women tend to have some hair loss. In fact, postnatal hair loss is a normal occurrence.
During pregnancy, high estrogen slows down hair shedding cycle, thus prolonging the hair growth process. After giving birth, hormonal balance is changed, and estrogen levels plummet, making hair shedding faster. Within about a year, your hair shedding cycle will return to normal.
Meanwhile, you should often consult your doctor, to ensure that your postnatal hormones are normal. You should also maintain a healthy postnatal diet - eat plenty fruits and vegetables, because they contain abundant antioxidants. Antioxidants can help to protect hair follicles and boost hair growth.
