Post pregnancy hair loss is very common. Generalised thinning which results in the unexpected occurrence of visible scalp is very often seen these days among young mums.
In fact we see it more now than we did even ten years ago. If you weren’t expecting this to happen, you may be worried by the unexpected occurrence of this “male problem”.
While it doesn’t happen after every pregnancy, post-pregnancy hair loss is pretty common. You may even be on your second or third child and be experiencing this phenomenon for the first time, don’t panic, it will grow back.
Normally, your hair cycles through 3 stages: anagen (growing), catagen (resting) and finally telogen (resting/falling). During pregnancy, your higher levels of oestrogen prolong the growth phase which means you have fewer hairs in the resting/falling stage and your hair is thick and lustrous. Once you’ve given birth, these oestrogen levels fall and cause (amongst other things!) a lot of hairs to enter the resting/falling stage. This usually only lasts a few months and most women have their pre-pregnancy hair back within the year.
