The Best Advice from Moms to Avoid Postpartum Hair Loss

In figures, it is estimated that over 50% of women lose a lot of hair within 3 months of the birth of their baby!
Although this form of “postpartum alopecia” is quite classic and reversible, it often worries young mothers… Because for many, having pretty hair is a symbol of femininity, that we can be in a hurry to find again afterwards.

9 months pregnant. 

But why this hair loss after childbirth?  

And how to remedy it effectively?

We interviewed moms in the JOONE community , who tell us about this phenomenon and give us their best advice.

Why do people lose their hair after giving birth?

During pregnancy, the estrogen level increases massively in pregnant women, which prolongs the life of her hair.  For 9 months, they are therefore more vigorous, thicker and shinier.
But at the time of childbirth, this estrogen level will suddenly drop ... dragging your pretty mane with it!  This is called a   reaction drop   .

The arrival of a baby is often a stressful stage for mothers.  In addition to fatigue (linked to   lack of sleep  when   returning  to   work  …) this can lead to hair loss.
