MFM are puttng together a pregnancy hair feature and would love for you guys to help us out!
Did your hair drastically change during your pregnancy? Did it become dry, brittle or frizzy and greasy?
Or maybe you experienced a fabulous change and you loved your new hair (thicker, full of volume, shiny)?
We'd love to hear your pregnancy hair experiences and how you dealt with them (or embraced them!)
Don't be shy and (h)air your niggles and stories on here
Kyrsty @ MFM x
My hair usually gets thicker,till 3 months after babies born and it comes out in brushfulls,every day.
With my last pregnancy it got really greasy,right at the end.I tried so many shampoos,none of my usual ones were any good.
My hair has always been thick and fairly glossy,after DS number 1 it went frizzy and limp....after DS 2 it went thinner and frizz bomb once again.....after DS number 3 it has stayed thick and glossy! I just now have no time to appreciate it and style it!!!!!
It needs a trim urgently,but that's not likely for a while!!!!
I naturally have thick hair with a kink to it. Sometimes great and sometimes a bit dodgey looking. Each time I was pregnant it go bigger and thicker and really greasey roots. I got mine thinned out to the max both times so my head could breath.
After, my hair fell out loads for few months with Mia and this time it is still coming out tons but 10 months on, no sign of it letting up. This would be awesome but it is still super bushy. I always wanted what I call Pedigree Chum hair, nice thin glossy coat so I was kind of hoping to get it at least while I was pregnant.
I did grow my hair out more so I could tie it up and get air to my head and neck a bit.
With both my pregnancies my hair became thicker, shinier and far less greasy than normal. It meant that I could wash it every 3 days as opposed to every day when I am not pregnant. The one strange thing that did happen though was that it got a lot darker. My hair was a mousey brown colour to begin with and now is dark brown.
However no-one told me that your hair will fall out after pregnancy. Three months after giving birth to my son (my eldest) my hair started to fall out in huge clumps and didn't start to grow back for months. I had little bald patches and what looked like a receeding hairline. Luckily my healthcare team at the hospital put my mind to rest that it was natural. Now I have a 4 month old daughter and my hair is again falling out in huge clumps. I don't mind too much but I do hate the stage where it is growing back in and is wispy and baby hair like!
I didn't notice much of a change with my first pregnancy (or maybe I was too caught up in the novelty of everything), but with the second my skin & hair stopped being their normally greasy selves & were lovely - no spots, manageable hair that didn't have to be washed all the time.
However, when my 2nd was 5 months old, my hair started falling out, and within a couple of months I was back to normal, except that I had loads of short, wispy 'baby hair' rond my hairline as new hairs had started to grow. It has taken another year for it to be long enough to integrate it back into my normal hair (and my hair's back to its normal greasy self), so overall everything reset in the end
