Having a baby is one of the most beautiful things in the world. But what isn’t so beautiful is the massive shedding you suffer right after, thanks to postpartum hair loss.
Once you’ve made it out of the fourth trimester – yes, that’s a thing, your body is still trying to balance those hormones that are raging within. And now those luscious locks you’ve earned during pregnancy seem to be falling out in clumps.
So, here’s the thing – because we have far less hair shedding than usual while we’re pregnant [thanks to hormones], the moment we give birth, our hormone levels begin to balance themselves out. Resulting in massive shedding, but it’s only the hair you would’ve lost during those nine months.
Yes, that means it’s not permanent.
And with these five superior supplements and serums, your hair will grow back longer and stronger than ever.
This isn’t the latest social media craze for no reason. Rosemary oil is one of the best oils to strengthen thinning strands. Applying the oil directly to the scalp and massaging it thoroughly will help prevent breakage while encouraging growth. With continued use expect noticeably thicker, fuller, and longer locks.
The major growth that comes from Moon Juice’s SuperHair vitamins is top-tier. SuperHair targets stress and nutritional deficiencies, which is perfect for postpartum mamas navigating their newly routed mom-sphere. With ingredients like Saw Palmetto and Pumpkin Seed, follicles are supported through growth cycles, resulting in healthier hair.
The Nue Co. got it right when they mixed key vitamins, proteins, and adaptogens to create a supplement ideal for growth. This blend helps balance nutrient deficiencies and regulates hormones, aiding in strands that are less prone to breakage. With daily use expect growth to be seen within three months.
Black castor oil promotes healthy hair growth for all hair types. Its thick and rich formula carefully hydrates strands allowing the oil to penetrate deeply, preventing breakage and hair loss. This oil is also multi-functional and can be used on lashes and brows, and even skin for a smooth, even tone [ahem… stretch marks].
This duo does double the work by attacking the issue from within your body and on your scalp. These tasty, strawberry-flavored gummies help maintain scalp wellness with their powerful punch of vitamins.
The GRO Hair Serum revitalizes roots helping to increase the appearance of fuller and shiner strands in 90 days. These two combined are a surefire way to get your hair back on track to its healthy journey.
Just like motherhood, our hair goes through quite the journey as well. But go with the comfort of knowing that by the time your baby’s first birthday rolls around, your hair will be even stronger than before.
