Maybe you did not know, but in most cases, pregnancy is good news for the hair. The concentrated load of hormones during this time makes the hair shiny, thick and prevents hair loss. For care during pregnancy is recommended a mild shampoo, a good conditioner and once a week a moisturizing mask.

If you normally color your hair, it is good for you to know that the coloring agents that fix to the hair fiber do not pose any danger to the baby. However, it may be that the strong hormone concentration due to pregnancy affects the color result. Therefore, you should contact a hairdresser and inform him that you are pregnant so that he can dose the products correctly.

Pregnancy protects your hair, but in the postpartum period, your hormone balance returns to normal. Major changes take place in your body again and the hormone concentration decreases sharply. After birth, you may suffer from severe hair loss. However, it gradually subsides and stops completely after a few months. Some women lose 20% to 30% of their hair and also the beautiful shine of the previous nine months. Fatigue and stress contribute to hair sensitivity and hair loss after childbirth, but there is no reason to despair. Cosmetic and drug treatments can prevent and slow down this phenomenon. A cure with nutrient capsules provides the hair with vitamins, minerals and the necessary fatty acids. In the pharmacy are also available ampoules against hair loss, which can be supplemented by a shampoo with invigorating active ingredients. Take the opportunity to try a new hairstyle, it will do your hair and your mood good! Consult a dermatologist if the problem persists and you have been losing tufts of hair for more than three weeks without any improvement.
