Hair loss after the delivery
During incubation of the child most of women note that the condition of their hair considerably improves. Ringlets become more elastic and dense, hair find gloss and force. For the entire period of pregnancy hair practically do not drop out, respectively, the hairdress looks magnificent and beautiful. These positive changes of pregnancy are most noticeable in recent months.
Such pleasant changes in an organism of future mother happen in view of active saturation of her organism the useful microelements, vitamins and other substances which are favorably influencing a female organism in general. Besides, improvement of structure and the general condition of hair is promoted by a hormonal background.
Very often visible changes of a condition of hair during pregnancy are noted by natural blondes: the hair color at them becomes more dark. However after a recovery puerperal period the shade finds initial paints.
Condition of hair after the delivery
But, unfortunately, so pleasant changes disappear after the birth of the kid already after a while. Gradually process of a hair loss amplifies, and in several months the woman already notes unpleasant effects: hair become thinner and look far not so magnificently, as during pregnancy. Guards the woman and the fact that the hair loss progresses: their impressive quantity is constantly observed both on hairbrushes, and on clothes, and in a bathroom during washing of the head.
As a rule, hair at young mother begin to drop out approximately two months later after the kid was born. If process is natural, then in four-five months less hair drops out, and growth of new hairs, on the contrary, becomes active. However often it happens and so that the hair loss begins later and drags on for much more long term.
It is quite clear that so important changes in appearance cannot but upset also so morally exhausted young mother. Sometimes it seems to the woman that such changes are irreversible, and the dense bush of hair any more will never be recovered. But actually a hair loss after the delivery – process quite explainable from the point of view of the changes which happened in a female organism.
Specialists allocate several basic reasons which directly influence deterioration in a puerperal condition of hair. First of all, the woman has to understand that a certain number of hair drops out at each person as updating of indumentum – process regular and constant. At a usual condition of an organism of loss of hair are insignificant therefore such changes of fears do not cause. But nine months of pregnancy become a certain pause in this process. After the organism of the woman returns to a prenatal state, there is active "a making up missed": hair drop out the accelerated rates.
But if process of blood circulation is not broken, and a condition of head skin normal, then the hair loss stops rather quickly, and their general state does not suffer too striking changes.
One of the main reasons for which the hair loss at women after the delivery is observed is sharp reduction of level of estrogen (female sex hormones) in puerperal and the lactic period. Are oestrogenic, except other, define the general condition of hair of the woman. By the way, in the period of a climax hair become less dense also because of reduction of amount of estrogen.
Also as factors which influence a condition of hair of the woman it should be noted a condition of constant deficit of a dream at young mother, often arising stressful situations. Food of mother in most cases also leaves much to be desired from the point of view of providing an organism with necessary useful substances and microelements. Thereof roots of hair do not receive necessary food, blood circulation gradually worsens, and growth of hair is slowed down. And loss, on the contrary, becomes more intensive.
Hair can drop out also after the postponed general anesthesia at operation, in particular, after Cesarean section. As a result of all specified reasons, the feeding mother suffers from a plentiful hair loss.
How to prevent an excessive hair loss after the delivery?
