  • It's normal. My hair broke off and was terrible for about 1 1/2 years after my daughter was born. I had to get it cut short. It was so dry and bad. But it came back finally.

  • It's NOT normal! That indicates deficiencies in Omega fatty acids, zinc, calcium, iron and vitamin C. Get yourself a good daily fish oil supplement (krill oil is good) and a good daily multivitamin immediately.
