Hair loss after baby has been PRETTY devastating. Not only is your body feeling all over the place and like you are in a foreign country under your own skin, your hair starts falling out. Of course, I thought it was a joke, really, could anything about postpartum or pregnancy for that matter be enjoyable? Everything I have read says you return to normal between 6-12 months after giving birth.
So I don't know about you but it seems like 2 years is how it is, feeling weird, not knowing what is going on with your body. BUT completely thankful for the sweet little baby that we have. Sometimes I have to keep reminding myself of this, that is life though. Think positive.
What can you do about your postpartum Hair Loss?
Here is everything that I tried and what has worked for me.
3. Get a good hair cut
I went and saw my favorite hair girl, Chris from Blank Salon. Are you in the DMV? (DC, Maryland or Virginia) You will have to check her out. If you book an appointment online she is offering a $10 discount & 10% off all products. She is located in Merrifield. You will feel gorgeous again! I wish I had a before picture so you could see how awful it was.
4. Find an amazing shampoo & conditioner system for hair loss:
And if no one has told you, it will get better. Keep smiling even when it is hard. You are doing an amazing job. Motherhood is a journey. We got this.
Until next time,
***Full disclosure: I am a Brand Rep for Monat. All products I talk about I have personally tested and all comments/opinions are from my own experience.
I had been using Monat Shampoo & Conditioner for 8 months. I did switch my Shampoo & Conditioner to Kevin Murphy. More about why here. Whether it be hormones from pregnancy or postpartum, I don't know. However, I did not found a shampoo and conditioner system that I liked from Monat. They leave my hair either super oily or super dry. It was one extreme or the other. Nothing in between. It also made my hair very hard to brush. I had to use my Wet Brush and I swear by this brush. It could brush through the craziest knot.
When I say I tried everything, I tried every combination that I could think of of Monat Shampoo & Conditioner. After 8 months, I figured it was time to find something else. So I do not use Monat Shampoo or Conditioner products, I know, I'm shocked to say this out loud. However, I have plenty of clients who have and LOVE THEM. I do like a lot of their "non-shampoo & conditioner" products. Plus, I made my husband try all of the "men" products and I will share the ones he loves in another post.
I am thankful. I have read the information about those who had a really bad experience with Monat. Everyone's experience is going to be different. The company is top notch. I really like their mission - cruelty free and plant based products. This is how I originally got turned on to these products. We only use cruelty free products in our home as we have 2 rescue beagles and want to help end testing on these sweet animals.
I recognize my hair is falling out because I just had a baby. Not from these products and I won't lie to you about my experience. NONE OF MY FALL IT IS FROM THESE PRODUCTS. I have found a bunch of other products they have that I love. Check them out below.
