Why am I losing my hair?

I had a baby almost 5 months ago and I've noticed that for a while now I'm losing more than the ocassional strand. It's not to the extent that I have bald spots but it's still a lot more than normal. I'm not sure if this helps at all but I had nursed my son for 6 weeks. Any ideas as to why this is happening?

  • You are suffering from postpartum alopecia. It's very common after birth and will grow back. Until then go to a salon and purchase the NIOXIN system to encourage healthy re growth.
