Tips to Stop Postpartum Hair Loss “Telogen Effluvium of Pregnancy”

Giving birth to a child is an important life event for any woman.

Though she is happy, she is also perturbed by the postpartum hair loss that she is suffering from. Her self body image is taking a beating due to the hair fall. This is medically referred to as ‘Telogen Effluvium’.

In Postpartum hair loss the woman is alarmed at the amount of hair loss over a short period of just one month. Telogen Effluvium can also result from any other experience that is either physically or emotionally traumatic like child birth. Changes take place in the way the hair grow and develop. This difference causes a large number of hair follicles to shed all at one time.

The treatment is medical and not “hair transplantation”. “Hair Transplants” are done in other indications.

My article helps you to be aware of the entity of Postpartum Hair Loss and to take remedial measures.

  • Since Stress is one of the most important factors, please reduce your stress levels and anxiety. However, it is easier said than done. Try to keep your worries and negative thoughts out of your mind by engaging in constructive activities. Start meditation and breathing exercises, join a dance class, and take long walks.
  • Be sure you are getting the nutrients required to prevent hair loss. Deficiencies in zinc, manganese and vitamin B12 contribute to hair loss. It is advisable to continue supplements you were taking during the pregnancy.
  • When there is thinning of the hair, use a shampoo and conditioner that give volume and bulk to your tresses. Regular oiling and spa therapies also help.
