Congrats mamma! You did it! 40 weeks of pregnancy & your probably over the moon to be holding that new ball of joy! Though it isn’t all cupcakes and unicorns, in between bottles and nap time, diaper changes and cuddles, you are slowly finding your way to a new normal-you actually can learn to function on new sleep. Everything is falling into a rhythm. Everything, that is, but your hair. It’s shedding like a dog in the spring, giant clumps every time you brush or shower!
Postpartum hair loss is a thing people often hear about but don’t fully understand until it happens to them. The gorgeous, thick hair that pregnancy gave you usually only lasts a few months after giving birth.” Aproximatly 40-50% of new moms
BUT DON’T FRET PRETTY MAMMA, ITS NOT FOREVER!
We’ve compiled some of our best tips below for you to help manage this situation.
- Get a good trim:
Getting into the salon may seem impossible, but don’t worry Beauty & Babes will welcome you & your new little bundle with open arms. Getting a good trim will help reduce tangles and just make overall brushing & maintenance that little bit more simple when you don’t have to fight every time you pick up a brush.
- Products are key:
Regularly shampooing and conditioning is key, not just to keep your hair healthy, but also to feel refreshed overall, a fabulous mood booster for new moms & believe it or not there are some great shampoos out there that can combat the hair loss!
One of our favorites for the new mom combating hair loss is our Eprouvage line. This product line is color-safe, gentle daily shampoo and conditioner that adds soft volume and fullness to limp hair. Nurture stressed hair and replenish tired strands. Hair gains substance and strength to look more vibrant and full. Formulated with our Progressive Plant Cell Technology so it is safe for any breast feeding mamma.
- Ponytails aren’t just for the gym:
When time is on the line, the ponytail is a much favored classic by both moms & non-moms alike. Toss a cute little clip in there or even a headband!
- Keep up that healthy diet:
Growing that baby required a strong and healthy diet. All of the vitamins and nutrients you focused on during pregnancy are just as essential for your post-pregnancy health. Staying hydrated, eating fruits and veggies, and taking those vitamin supplements will all make a huge difference for your hair (and overall health) when your baby is here.Try not to stress pretty mamma, your life is full of changes right now.
