A natural phenomenon called Telogen Effluvium or postpartum hair loss happens to about 50% of women after they give birth.
The high levels of hormones in your body during pregnancy stop your hair from falling out leaving you with thick, luscious locks. After birth, your hormones go back to their pre-pregnancy levels, so all that hair you should have lost during nine months of pregnancy, just falls out at once.
Telogen Effluvium is temporary and your hair should regain its normal thickness within 12 months. Here are some natural remedies to help you deal with postpartum hair loss.
