Has a recent pregnancy and/or giving birth that wreaks such havoc on hair? Here are a couple leading reasons why, followed with some tips for newly pregnant mama's and current busy mama's alike!!
Most women find their hair looks thicker and shinier during pregnancy but hormonal changes come "full-on" after having a baby.
The three phases of hair; growth, resting and shedding.
Hair grows at the same rate that it falls out. Although, when you are pregnant your "pregnancy hormones" extend the growth period, particularly during the second and third trimester, which is why women often notice hair becoming thicker as
their pregnancy goes on. Usually, losing your hair after birth is just your hair going back to normal. This is variable for all women. Some determining factors may be nutrition, stress, weight gain-sudden loss, etc.
Hair gone dry?
Most believe the sebaceous glands are vastly producing oil during pregnancy, but the opposite can also occur; the hormones can reduce the amount of oil your sebaceous glands produce.
Hormones should return to normal, and the dry fly-aways should subside. In the meantime, use Kasia Off the Fritz and Outshine Serum to build moisture back into the hair, protect and to create a finished look. Even the finest hair can benefit from a our Outshine Hair Serum.
