Pregnancy and Hair Loss

Pregnancy and Hair Loss

When you’re pregnant, your body goes through many changes. Pregnancy changes hair’s length, fullness, and thickness. Pregnancy can cause hair loss.

Usually, about 90% of your hair is growing while the other 10% is in a resting phase. During pregnancy, the hair’s resting phase increases, leading to more loss. Telogen effluvium can occur from three months into pregnancy to five months after delivery.

Hair loss typically happens after pregnancy. Frequent hormonal changes during pregnancy affect your body. Your body uses nutrients for the child, affecting your hair. Vitamin deficiencies can also cause hair loss, in addition to telogen effluvium.

There are a few things that you can do to avoid hair loss during pregnancy and after delivery. Consult your physician about regulating hormone levels. You want to make sure your estrogen levels remain balanced after pregnancy.

Avoid hairstyles like pigtails and cornrows during and post-pregnancy. Similarly, don’t tug or brush wet hair; it’s more fragile. Biotin-rich shampoos and conditioners can promote hair growth.
