Selma Blair started talking about her post partum hair loss after having her son in 2011. The actress told People magazine “This is so not glamorous, but it’s true: I need to take longer showers so that I can collect the hair that falls out and throw it away so I don’t clog the drain. Why do actresses never talk about that?”
What Can We Do About It?
Often we see male celebrities embracing a new shorter, shaved look at the first sign of hair loss, but for women it isn’t that easy. In fact, as women first begin to wonder if they may be experiencing female hair loss, they are shocked and stunned, as they are usually not sure why it’s happening nor how to fix the problem.
If this is happening to you, the fist thing to do is to consult a doctor and check your symptoms, as there are many reasons you may be losing hair.
