Did you lose a lot of hair after giving birth?

After I had my DD my hair was falling out in clumps... it was so gross!

My friend is going through the same thing now.

I didn't lose clumps but I did shed a lot more than ever before. My hair in general sucks after having my kids. It's brittle and dry. Never had those kinds of problems before pregnancy.

It's normal. Pregnancy hormones halt day-to-day hair loss. What occurs after pregnancy is loss of all the extra.

My son is almost 6 months and it has started shedding last month. I keep finding hair everywhere. Drives me crazy.

Yep, every time. I haven't lost any hair in months, so I just know that in a few weeks when baby is born, it's all going to come out in huge clumps. Yaaay.

Yes it's ridiculous!! I hate seeing m hair balls all over my house car clothes ugh. Luckily I have thick hair normally so you can't tell but I am so Over it. My baby is 4 mo old when will it end!?
And will the new baby hairs give me tons of frizz? :(
