Answer: Hi darling, in general you would hear people saying that pregnancy made their hair more thick but again few of us has different experience. i can relate as i too had the same hair fall issue .There are some things you can do to reduce the hair loss or have a healthier hair during pregnancy. Do not over-brush your hair as it can cause further damage. Do not go for tight hairstyles such as a ponytail, cornrows, braids, hair weaves and hair rollers as they can pull and stress your hair, causing breakage. Do not use straightening treatments or chemical dyes as they make the hair brittle and dry. Use milder shampoo and conditioner. Use a detangling comb to brush your wet hair. Massage the scalp to stimulate blood circulation. Avoid using hair colors as harmful chemicals present in them can lead to excessive hair fall. Eat lots of fruits and vegetables containing flavonoids and antioxidants which help in protecting the hair follicles from damage and stimulate hair growth.

Answer: Hello dear. After birth, the levels of oestrogen fall, and larger amounts of hair go into the resting phase, causing excessive shedding, or hair loss. Although there is no way to completely prevent hair loss after pregnancy, it can be minimised by taking certain measures. Here are a few tips to control hairfall : Do not use water which is too hot for washing your hair. Massage the strained liquid of soaked fenugreek into the scalp. Apply a mixture of olive oil, egg yolk and lemon juice on hair roots. Massage coconut milk onto scalp, leave for ½ hour and rinse with warm water. Take care.
