Did your hair change drastically after having a baby?

My hair was always straight with a little wave to it. Then I noticed after I had my first child, 6 years ago, my hair became curly, frizzy and out of control!!. I don't have the time to straighten it any more so I waud it all up to the top of my head and wrap a rubber band around it.
Has child baring changed your hair for the worse? Any moms out there have tips for unruley hair?

  • Yep, I had a pregnancy about 8 years ago that turned my straight hair curly. And when I had my son 21 months ago, it went back straight again. Bummer, I liked the curls, but I'd rather have my son :)

  • Yes, mine got curlier and redder with each pregnancy. My sister's hair turned more brown than red with each one.

  • Mine went from curly to straight with my son, and straight to curly with my daughter. People kept asking me if I got a perm! Mines a mess now!

  • Mine just got a lot thinner and I shed more! I just think it's because of the prenatal vitamins I was taking... made my hair a whole lot thicker.

  • That is crazy I never realized that ladies had this issue. My hair had stayed the same through all my little ones but I guess I should count myself lucky for that.
