There’s nothing quite like the feeling of having a new baby bundle placed in your arms. Sure, you could’ve done without the 9 months of discomfort, but those tiny little hands and feet and gazing eyes make it all worth it!
Sadly, for many women, a side effect of pregnancy is postpartum hair loss. It’s a natural process that occurs due to hormonal changes in your body. Throughout your pregnancy, your oestrogen levels were extremely high, causing your hair to stay in the growth phase, making it thicker and fuller. But after birth, your oestrogen levels dropped and caused your hair to shift into the resting phase and shed, resulting in a thinning mane.
But don’t fear! There’s a lot you can do to regain your hair and your confidence:
Be gentle. Avoid brushing wet hair, try not to tie your ponytail too tight and avoid unnecessary heat styling which can cause extra damage for your follicles.
Eat a healthy diet. Fuel your body with wholesome foods, feeding your insides the vitamins and minerals they need to stay strong and exercise regularly. Your body is still recovering from birth and it needs all the help it can get to go back to its usual self.
Nourish at the roots. Use évolis to keep hair in the growth phase for longer. Formulated from certified organic ingredients and clinically proven to help you regrow your hair, think of évolis as the helping hand you need to bring back the locks you once had.
Most importantly, take a moment to breathe in and out, look at the amazing little bundle you created, and give yourself a pat on the back for getting as far as you have. Remember, there’s plenty you can do to return your hair to its healthy and thriving form!
