August 19, 2021

While many symptoms of pregnancy aren’t so fun (ie. morning sickness, sleep loss, and heartburn), there do happen to be a few perks – one being gorgeous, lush locks. This is because when you’re expecting, your hormones keep your hair from falling out. Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end, and after the baby is born and hormones adjust, most women go through an extreme shedding phase. It’s important to note that it is completely normal for hair to thin after pregnancy, and truthfully, there’s nothing you can do to stop it. However, there are some things you can do to make hair appear fuller and feel thicker. 

  1. Ditch the Heat

It’s no secret that heat styling is no good for the hair, so while you’re experiencing postpartum hair loss, it’s a good idea to be as gentle with hair as possible. Instead, try air drying, braids, or anything you can to stay away from heat.

  1. Be Gentle

Rough drying with a towel or aggressively brushing hair should always be no-no’s but especially so during the fourth trimester. Make sure to brush hair gently, starting at the ends and working your way up to the roots, and use a microfiber towel for hair drying.

  1. Don’t Forget Your Vitamins

Vitamins are just as important after you give birth as they are during your pregnancy. It is recommended to continue taking your prenatal vitamin after baby is born to supplement your diet, especially when breastfeeding.

  1. Use a Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner

These products are specifically formulated for those with fine and thinning hair, and use nourishing, volumizing ingredients help hair appear fuller-bodied. We created our Thickening Shampoo and Thickening Conditioner with specialized ingredients to optimize scalp health by cleansing and fortifying hair while protecting from environmental stressors. When used together, these phyto-infused formulas fortify the cuticle and work to improve hair shaft thickness.

  1. Try a Treatment 

When dealing with thinning hair, it’s important to look for products that are physician formulated, clinically tested, and color safe. This ensures you’re using a product that is created with the best ingredients, has been tested to ensure results, and is safe for even damaged hair. Our Volume Enhancing Foam checks all those boxes, and then some. This transforming hair volume enhancer foam features our proprietary BioPeptin Complex® to boost the vitality of hair with a breakthrough formula designed to intensify natural volume. Clean, lightweight formula adds shine and body and improves elasticity to help combat breakage and aid in conditioning of the scalp. In a 4-week consumer study with 33 participants, 97% said their fine hair looked and felt fuller and more voluminous, while 94% said thinning hair looks thicker, healthier and nourished. Essentially, it’s the perfect product for postpartum thinning hair, and will help you get back to your lush, flowing locks in no time!
