Let’s talk hair.

I’d heard the stories, read all about it on pregnancy forums and was even warned by my hairdresser but nothing had quite prepared me for it. I’m talking post-pregnancy hairloss. 

Six months into motherhood and I’m not going to lie I smugly thought I’d escaped the worse. That was until a couple of weeks ago when my hair started falling out quicker than you can say ‘goodbye preggo locks’. I think I’m just a late starter. 

I’ve always had a lot of hair, it’s really thick and very long, but during pregnancy it got thicker and longer. I loved it. And I was massively lulled into a false sense of hair security when it didn’t start falling out straight away as I’d expected. 

It’s now everywhere, seriously everywhere. The car, the shower, in the dishwasher, in Harley’s nappy, in between his toes. Everywhere. 

It’s definitely got worse in the past week so I’m hoping that it’s going to start getting better whilst searching the internet for a cure. Sad thing is there’s nothing. Apparently it’s totally normal, blame the hormones, and will get better. But for now even my hairdresser said there’s nothing I can do. So I’m trying to wait it out whilst hurriedly collecting the hairs I find all over the house and keeping my hair in a tight top knot. Oh and don’t even start me on the new greys I’m finding on a daily basis.

If anybody has any tips please share!

  1. I feel your pain, I’m considering a hair net for days when it’s just Harry and I in the house; hideous yet practical. Defo need some kind of heavy duty plug sieve/guard thingy to prevent the shower clogging up and dying too haha

  2. […] One thing I am loving this week though is my hair. I forgot how good pregnancy hair is but also remember how horrible post-pregnancy hair loss is. […]
