During pregnancy, the mother’s hair can become thicker and shinier. This is influenced by the high hormone estrogen. However, hair loss during pregnancy is also common. Hair loss during pregnancy can occur in 40-50 percent of pregnant women. But, like other changes in pregnancy, this condition is temporary. Two to four weeks after delivery, pregnant women’s hair will also experience quite heavy hair loss. This is reasonable because it will only last for 3-4 months. Then, the hair will grow back in 6-15 months. If you experience severe hair loss, to do the safest and best treatment, immediately consult with Balayage Hairstyles.
The first natural way to deal with hair loss during pregnancy is to wash your hair slowly and gently. Avoid rubbing or scratching the scalp which can cause hair loss. If you want to do a massage, do it in circular motions on the scalp without rubbing the hair roots. Wet hair is more brittle. As a result, it breaks more easily if rubbed with a towel or combed. It is therefore advisable to wrap wet hair in a towel without rubbing it. Let the hair dry with the air, then comb it.
Using a blow dryer too often or too much heat increases hair breakage and hair loss.
For those of you who have curly hair, it is recommended to comb it while it is still wet. This method prevents curly hair from breaking more than in a dry state. Combing or brushing your hair too often can cause split ends. Hair can break easily and increase hair loss. Therefore, comb your hair as necessary to deal with hair loss during pregnancy. A wide-toothed comb is safer for hair than fine-toothed combs. Don’t constantly tie, braid, and braid your hair, or use hair extensions while pregnant. Without realizing it, all these hairstyles cause hair to be pulled and can cause hair loss. A straightening comb should only be used when the hair is dry, on a low or medium mode, and not every day. If using curling irons, do not heat your hair for more than 1 or 2 seconds.
