Why do women lose their hair? Part 2: Hair loss after pregnancy – Maria’s Story

http://www/ Hair loss after pregnancy is a common condition: 40 percent of women experience some hair thinning and hair loss after giving birth. The cause of this type of hair loss is an excessive number of hair follicles entering a resting phase (60 percent during the postpartum period as opposed to 10 percent normally) after the physiological trauma of childbirth.

Postpartum hair loss is a temporary condition that reverts itself three to six months after giving birth. Extreme hair loss should be treated by a dermatologist or hair restoration specialist. Possible solutions for mothers who are not nursing include Minoxidil or low-level laser therapy.
