  • Have you recently had babies? i lost alot of hair from both of mine (Post partum hair loss) I am still recovering.
    I stopped putting blonde hilites in my hair and wash it every 2 days & am very gentle with it, don't put it in elastic bands etc. & comb & brush carefully...keep taking your prenatal vitamin & other B vitamins. Also, stress is HUGE if you are stressing about it it just makes it worse. Just accept it for now & hope for improvement to come. I lost my hair like almost 3 months after I had the babies & then shed for about 7 weeks straight each time it was brutal I really felt I was going to have a huge bald spot. Hang in there it sucks bad BUT will get better. Make sure your iron level is good and yes if you are on meds inquire on the side affects. GL.

  • Pose this question to Dawn Gallagher, top model, everyday mom, by googling "Nature's Beauty Secrets." She's also on Facebook.
