Postpartum Hair Loss: How to Grow Your Hair Back After Having a Baby

Don’t panic, postpartum hair loss is normal. It can be an alarming discovery. You’re going about your regular hair-care routine; savoring those moments alone where you can tend to your own self-care. When all of a sudden you look down at your brush and find large clumps of your hair tangled in the bristles. It’s normal for your hair to thin out after pregnancy. If it’s not worrying you, you don’t need to do anything to treat it. And, unfortunately, there is nothing that has been shown to prevent or slow postpartum hair loss. But if your hair loss is bothering you, there are treatments you can try to make your hair appear fuller and healthier.

Maintain a healthy diet

We all know that maintaining a healthy diet is an important factor for optimal health and wellbeing. For postpartum women, in particular, a healthy diet can help your overall recovery and stop postpartum hair loss from progressing. Make sure your diet includes the necessary balance of vitamins and nutrients found primarily in vegetables, whole grains, and fresh fruit. Remember to drink plenty of water throughout the day in order to stay hydrated.

Consider a supplement.

Many of the experts I’ve talked to love Nutrafol, which is a blend of hair-promoting vitamins, minerals, and extracts such as biotin, zinc, and organic kelp. Based on the research, I fully believe that it works.

Skip the styling

Heating your hair with a dryer or curling iron may make it look thinner. Try to hold off on fancy styling and let your hair air-dry till the thinning tapers out. Brushing too hard can also cause your hair to fall out in bigger clumps, so be gentle when brushing and don’t brush more than once a day. You can use the extra time to cuddle your baby or catch up on sleep.
