  • Sure did.... My natural hair color has always been blonde. Pretty light blonde, even. But the past couple of years, I'd been coloring it red. When I got pregnant, I stopped coloring my hair. Now, my son is 15 months, and my hair is reddish brown. It's weird...

  • Mine went from thick and perdectly straight-like "pantene commercial" hair. Now it is frizzy and not nearly as thick. I hate it- I don't know what to do with curly hair.

  • Yes! My hair was a very light blonde. It got darker and is now a light gold color. I wasn't happy until I saw a pic of myself in a gold cocktail dress..since then I have loved my new color!

  • Mine has always been red, but with each pregnancy it has gotten redder and curlier. My sister had red hair and with each pregnancy hers got browner.

  • Ugh yes. I had my son 4 months ago and my hair has never looked worse. I color my hair but when it grows out, my natural hair color looks very dull and almost has a grayish tint to it and I'm only 21! Not to mention it is falling out like crazy. Now it is really thin, lacks any sort of body or volume, and has no shine to it at all.
