  • Hmm... I still get a good amount every shower at 6 months, but maybe that's just the normal daily hairloss, I can't remember what it was like before pregnancy. There's no need to worry, though. The reason most women lose a lot of hair in the postpartum period is because they lost NONE during the pregnancy, so it's the hair you would have lost then -- just all at once.

  • I had issues with my hair for nearly a year after having my daughter...The actual hair loss lasted about 4-5 months for me.

  • Mine came and went for a few months, I dont really remember how many months but I know it peaked at about 2 months and gradually got better from there.

  • uhhhh! until 2 years ago & my child is 7, it came & went thoguh. My hair was full & it's flat & not curly anymore. I had to get a perm to make it look like how it did before....everyone says it will come back, but so far i've had no luck.
