Post Natal hair loss occurs between two to four months after childbirth and can last up to a year.
After childbirth, hormone (estrogen) levels rapidly decline, leading to a shift in the hair growth cycle. This shift causes a larger number of hairs to enter the resting (telogen) phase, which eventually leads to increased hair shedding.
Pregnancy and breastfeeding can deplete certain nutrients in the body. When these nutrients are not adequately replenished through a balanced diet or supplements, it can affect hair health.
Postnatal hair loss is temporary, and your hair will likely regain its normal thickness over time.
