Anyone else have a VERY sensitive scalp since they got preggers?? Normally my scalp is not sensitive at all!! I love when people play with my hair, and I love to brush my hair cause it feels good, but since I got pregnant, my scalp is SO sensitive. I can't even scratch my head without it hurting... I just brushed my hair, and I could barely stand it! And, before you ask, I have been using the same shampoo for over 4 years.

  • OMG I thought I was going nuts. Yes my scalp is very sensitive. It feels like I have a sunburn on my head all the time. AHHHHHH
    When will this stop?

  • It will stop in time for your hair to get yanked out by a precocious 6 month old :)

  • Is is affecting all your skin or just your scalp?
