Caring for your hair during pregnancy
During pregnancy your body undergoes many changes including hair loss for a lot of Mums to be. They describe their hair as awful and a nightmare.
Distressing as this can be, your hair can recover. The stress of seeing your hair fall out can make things worse. Try not to stress – replace the stress with confidence that it will come back.
During pregnancy you can use gentle vitamin enriched shampoos and conditioners like the HLCC Scripts Bio Therapy Shampoo and HLCC Scripts Vitamin Plus Conditioning Treatment that we use at the salon here in Cleckheaton in Yorkshire. These will help take the best care of your hair during pregnancy and help recovery to start once you have had your baby.

Hair Loss after Pregnancy
Sometimes sudden hair loss occurs a short time after your baby is born.
You may have noticed your hair being thicker and fuller during pregnancy. High hormone levels provided extra nutrients which prevented the normal cycle where hair enters the resting phase before falling out.
Now those hormone levels drop and hair that would have previously fallen out as part of the natural cycle of hair growth now falls out all at once.
Post Pregnancy Hair Care
Continue using the vitamin enriched shampoo and conditioner and consider adding other vitamin based oral products and laser therapy. These will help recovery and speed up the process.
Avoid products containing minoxidil and while breast feeding avoid laser therapy.
