View Full Version : Losing hair
I know it is normal for a serious amount of hair to drop out a few months after the birth but was wondering when it stopped? I am losing clumps every day and my hair really feels noticeably thin now. Poor OH is sick of pulling it out of the drain in the shower.
This has started happening to me now too :-(
I haven't had it cut in a while, am thinking maybe a good hair cut could help as it's supposed to stimulate your hair folicles or something and help your hair to grow. I haven't had my hair cut since December :shock: so may be worth a try? ?
Mine kept shedding for months and months after Claire was born. I think it stopped when she was around 6 months or so. I haven't noticed it this time round but am sure it will happen at some point soon.
Mine fell out in clumps from about three months after the birth but I bottle fed so this was probably a bit earlier than breastfedeing mums. It took a while for it to stop and then I had new hair growth around my hairline that was really short and hard to control - I had a mini fringe with a life of its own until it caught up with the rest of my hair.
My hair got lovely and thick while I was pregnant and it was a bit of a shock to go back to fine hair that fell out.
You'll go back to normal after a while, but it is quite alarming to stand in the shower and se how much hair that has come out after a shampoo. It's all hormonal, but will settle down.
I think for me it was about 3 months after the birth when I started losing it, and about 6/7 months after when it stopped. It's quite alarming isn't it?!! The worst thing was the amount of hair that used to cover the bed after I'd dried my hair!:shock: I remember Incognito Smurf on HB saying that her bed was like Chewbacca.:laff:
I've got little short frizzy bits sticking out all over the place now.:sigh:
Mine is still falling out and DS is almost nine months! I'll be as bald as he is soon :shock: I'm taking iron supplements now though 'cos I'm a bit anaemic and that can cause hair loss.
Mine has just stopped and my LO is 6 months old.
Yep, this happened to me in a big way :rolleyes: It started at about 4 mths, and didn't stop til about 10mths. The worst time was washing and drying. Fortuantely, I have a thick head of hair so I could afford to lose some! :nod:
Joanna, I'm not sure how old you LO is, but my hair came out in clumps until chloe was about 6-7 months.
Maybe you could ask in boots or a health food shop and see if they can suggest any vitamin supplements to help xx
Mine is still coming out now and Chloe is 7 months. It is stopping slowly though.
I started losing hair at 6 months and stopped at 9 months. At 12 months the wispy bits that fell out are starting to grow and look normal again.
