  • Yes! I have had clients suffer from postpartum alopecia for as long as 22 months! Make sure you are eating well and taking vitamins. Don't use store brand shampoos. They contain wax and parrabens that can hinder healthy regrowth. Try Paul Mitchell lemon sage thickening shampoo and conditioner. Its affordable. Make sure you massage your scalp as well. If it hits two years, get checked for PCOS, I lost my hair over that.

  • Hypothyroidism can also cause hair loss. In general though, PP hair loss can last for months.
