Did your hair change after pregnancy?

My hair feels different after having my kids. My hair is a lot drier and I just can't get it to look right.  Lately it has gotten worst.  Do you feel like your hair changed after having kids?

My hair is still falling out on a constant basis, and has been since a couple weeks after I had DS... almost 5 years ago. It also doesn't hold a curl or scrunch well any more. :(

My hair is very curly, but it seems like the curl at the root starts to break up. :/

 mine compleatly changed color during my preg. to the point that it looked like my natural color had been a dye job that was growing out.  Now it is always is falling out I swear I feel like I should be bald by now since my ds is 13yrs old.

Yes and I went from a size 7 to a size 8 in clothes and shoes.  Strange.

 Right after having my children, my hair fell out at my temples.  It is due to hormonal changes and stress.  I would warm up and rub seasame oil on my scalp wrap it in a hot towel, relax, and then wash.  Each time it stopped it and it grew back. (seasame oil is really stinky though)

My hair is different since having children.  Hair healthy foods, like olive oil, fish (like salmon), nuts, avocado type foods in your diet.  You may also need some relaxation time. Are you stressed? Maybe a leave in conditioner too if the air is dry where you live.   Wash it less.  Maybe just use conditioner instead every other day.

oh ye it did. with each one.  I used to have stick straigh, silky, thick Vidal Sasoon-like hair.  Then it started getting wavy... and wacier, and wavier until it was curly.  Then I was on a med for seizures and it was like ringlets! and then that same med made it start falling OUT! D: So now... and this is years after babies and that med, my hair is back to straight.  really weird. 

Have you tried cococut oil/monoi oil?
