Mama Collagen – Postpartum Hair Loss

Postpartum Hair Loss

Here I talk about that postpartum hair loss. It’s real. So real.

I’ve just hit the three month postpartum mark, and this is where last time, with my firstborn.. I felt like I was going bald.

You see, in pregnancy, my hair was luscious.

Thick, bouncy and perfect.

It added to my pregnancy glow, although I didn’t realise how much I love it, until it was gone.

Let’s blame the hormones. Because they have a lot to answer for when it comes to pregnancy and postpartum bodily changes. And unfortunately, it does mean that postpartum all that extra hair that I didn’t lose in pregnancy came falling out in postpartum.

I expected it though.

I know it was a ‘thing’. But I did not realise the extent of it.

I didn’t realise my hair would feel strawy. It would look faded and brittle and, not matter how much conditioner I used, the softness and bounce was gone. And in that time, to me, it felt like it was gone forever.

So, this time around, I made a choice. To invest in me and my hair, because I didn’t want that same feeling again.

And so I did. I researched and found the best collagen and have been taking in pregnancy through the early weeks and months postpartum.
