  • I see no one's answering. Mine really wasn't significant. Maybe you should add some info about what's bothering you?

  • You mean gone though it? Yeah. Been there done that and my hair came back as thick as ever.

    Is there a particular question you need answered about it?

  • After I had my daughter my hair was awful. It was extremely dry and broke off. It was terrible. I finally had to get a short haircut. It didn't get better until I got pregnant again with my son 1 1/2 years later. Now it is better than ever and it's wavy! It was always straight.

  • With my first son I lost hair in clumps it was pretty bad. It did come back but it was slow. My second time around I only lost a little bit. But boy was that first time scary.

  • I pulled handfuls out for months. I think it would have been worse if I hadn't been on the mini-pill, whitch made my hair grow really fast. I had to clean the drain after every shower until I got it cut short. Now I think it's finally starting to level out.

  • I did it was pretty bad, for a few months, it's normal but your hair does grow back, just don't use pantene pro v anything, it also causes your hair to fall out.
