Veel vrouwen kennen dit fenomeen. Je bent zwanger vaak groeit je haar beter dan ooit en na de bevalling heb je last van haaruitval. Wil je weten hoe dat komt en hoe belangrijk het is om bewust te zijn van goede voeding? Lees dan dit artikel.
It’s not uncommon for new mothers to experience hair shedding between three and six months after giving birth. On average, we lose 100 strands of hair on a daily basis. However, when you’re pregnant, the hormones prevent those hairs from falling out, making your hair thicker and more luscious than it’s ever been. After giving birth, your hormones return to normal, causing all that extra hair to fall out – at once.
There’s no need to panic! Despite what you may have heard or read, you’re not going bald. During pregnancy, your body undergoes what seems to be a never-ending series of changes. Once you have the baby (or babies), your body goes through yet another series of changes, in order to get back to normal. To hang onto some of those extra strands, you can try breastfeeding, but just know that after you stop, those extra strands will start falling out again.
You can keep your hair healthy by eating well and taking a prenatal vitamin supplement. Also, be extra gentle with your hair during this time. That means shampooing only when necessary, using a good conditioner, as well as avoiding tight dos, heat of any kind (blow dryers, curling irons, and flat irons), and chemicals (highlights and relaxers). You should regain your normal hair density within 12 months.
