Hair loss during pregnancy

  1. Women normally lose about eighty to a hundred hairs a day. But when you're pregnant, your hormones can run wild with you. Some women suddenly have a beautiful, full head of hair. Other women are struggling with (extreme) hair loss.

  1. Unlike men, women lose their hair all over the head. And thinner spots may develop locally, but in general the hair loss is fairly even. Most women have about 400,000 to 1,000,000 hairs on their heads, so those 80 to 100 hairs that you lose every day are not very noticeable.

Pregnancy Hormones

  1. The increase in pregnancy hormones affects natural hair growth. In the natural cycle, there is a growth phase, transition phase and a resting phase, after which the hair falls out. These phases can change during pregnancy. In many women, the hair becomes fuller under the influence of the female hormone estrogen. Other women are shocked to discover more and more hair on the pillow or in the shower drain. It seems that the male hormones, androgens, play a role in this. But unnoticed, stress, tension and fatigue can also significantly affect hair growth. This can change as your pregnancy progresses, but can reappear several months after birth or after you stop breastfeeding. [! 173580 => 1130 = 3!] The influence of nutrition

  1. Make sure you have a healthy and varied diet during your pregnancy. This improves the fullness and shine of your hair and can limit loss. Fruits (especially berries, oranges, melon and apples), green leafy vegetables (spinach, lettuce, endive), dairy, chicken, nuts and fish have a positive effect on healthy hair growth. Certain vitamins (A, C, B6, B8 (biotin) and B12) are also good for the hair.

Care

  1. A conditioner can help keep hair supple, so that there is less hair loss when combing or brushing. In any case, use a wide tooth comb or soft brush and try to avoid excessive use of curling iron and hair dryer. These often make your hair dry and therefore more fragile. Until the hair loss has stopped, dyeing the hair or getting a perm is not recommended.

To the doctor?

  1. Extreme hair loss only occurs when bald patches appear on the scalp. In that case it is wise to visit the doctor for a blood analysis. This way it can be seen whether the hair loss is actually caused by fluctuations in the hormone balance. If something else appears to be the case, we are talking about medical hair loss and other means must be used to limit hair loss.

After delivery

  1. After childbirth, the amount of estrogen in the body decreases again and male and female hormones search for a good balance. This also means that the hair's life length returns to normal. If you had a nice, full head during your pregnancy, there will probably now be some extra hair loss. If you lost a little more hair, the hair loss will now decrease. A It may take a few months to a year for the hormone balance to recover. As long as no bald spots develop, it is a matter of waiting patiently. Also during this period it is important to ensure a healthy and varied diet. Iron, proteins, minerals and vitamins such as B8 (biotin) support hair growth. In some cases, the hair remains slightly thinner than before after giving birth. A A
