Postpartum Hair Loss

Postpartum hair loss is a temporary shedding of hair that commonly occurs 2-4 months after childbirth. It affects up to 50% of women who give birth.

Cause: The primary cause of postpartum hair loss is the hormonal shift that happens after pregnancy. During pregnancy, high estrogen levels prolong the growth phase of the hair cycle. After delivery, estrogen levels drop dramatically, causing a large number of hair follicles to prematurely enter the shedding phase, leading to increased hair loss.

History: Postpartum hair loss has been documented for centuries, but its exact mechanism wasn’t fully understood until recent research on hormonal changes during pregnancy and childbirth.

Treatment Solutions: Postpartum hair loss is usually temporary and resolves on its own within 6-12 months. However, some strategies can help manage hair loss and promote healthy hair growth during this time, including:

  • Maintaining a balanced diet rich in essential nutrients for hair health.
  • Gentle hair care practices to minimize breakage.
  • Managing stress levels.
