IS HAIR LOSS AFTER CHILD BIRTH A NORM?
Why is this happening? Giving birth to a child is not only joy, but also a serious body functioning at its peak. When under stress the body reduces the number of new emerging hair follicles, hair growth slows down and hair quality is deteriorating. For the reason that the life cycle of hair is 12-16 weeks, then after 3-4 months of childbirth begins excessive hair loss as a reaction to stress. At the same time with the hair falling in its term, the hair "accumulated" for the pregnancy starts falling out too, because estrogen is no longer slows down hair life cycle. Therefore, you may have a feeling that you are losing your hair.
If hair loss after childbirth is normal, should I worry? Of course, you shouldn’t, but you’d rather be vigilant and timely maintain the health of your hair.
Trichologists consider normal if a person losses from 50 to 100 hairs a day, and with a greater number they diagnose pathology - alopecia, or baldness. With anemia, vitamin deficiency, increased physical and mental stress and other stress factors, the usual reaction to prolapse can drag on and develop into alopecia. Young mothers face a 24-hour load and the necessity to do many things at the same time. This primarily affects the condition of the hair and can cause prolonged and even chronic loss.
