Post Partum hair loss? :(

Posted by on Oct. 7, 2012 at 1:34 AM

Hi,

I'm currently 6 months post partum and my hair has been falling out like crazy since 2 months PP. My hair stylist today said that she had read in school on time that post partum hair loss stops eventually. She actually seemed concerned when a whole bunch of hair came off into her hand...

Are or have any of you have had experience with this or know some info on it? 

Thanks so much in advance.

I did bad I was so worried I went to see my OB they said it was normal but checked my vitamin D level it was insufficient so I started to take Biotine and vitamin D3 and use Garnie Fructise shampoo & conditioner for stronger hair and less breakage. Hair has improved a lot and is barely falling out any more. My LO will be 9months on Monday.

At this point i would make an appointment with your doctor and do some blood work. it can happen as your hormones sort out, but i would think that at 6 mos pp things would be pretty much back to normal.

I started losing hair when I had my son. Been to numerous docs about it and tried numerous things. But I'm still losing it 6 years later :-(

 I'm still losing hair but I think some of it has to do with the fact that I'm still breastfeeding. Are you taking vitamins? It may help ... it won't hurt.

Yes, I'm taking vitamins. Thank you for your input.

My doctors said it woukd continue until i was done breastfeeding and the hormones were back to normal. My hairstylist friend sugguested a short haircut, no ponytails, and no brishing the hair wet. My son will be 2 on tuesday and you can't tell that my hair is still falling out, but it has slowed down a lot.
