Giovanna Fletcher shares post-baby “troll hair” pic

Did your hair do strange things once you'd had a baby?


Giovanna Fletcher’s definitely one of those slebs who’s pretty open and down to earth when it comes to the strange and wonderful world of parenting – and her latest Instagram post is no exception.


She posted the above pic with the words: “The regrowth… waaaah! I look like a troll! xx” – and other mums totally got what she was talking about.

She received more than 250 comments – mostly from other women who absolutely understood the weird and annoying things your hair can do after birth.

One fan said: “I’m so glad you’ve posted this, I’ve had this problem since my daughter was born and thought something was really wrong with my hair, I feel so relieved I’m not on my own! x”

Another said: “I looked like I let the baby at my hair with scissors! Hopefully won’t be as bad second time round.. !x”

And another: “I remember the re-growth there well!! The hair was so perfectly curled inward it looked like I’d blow-dried it ??? “

Here at MFM HQ, we nodded in agreement at the odd things that can happen to your hair once you’re a mum – particularly those thick front baby hairs.

One team member says the only thing she could do after a baby was to get a fringe cut in to hide the baby hairs growing at the front. 

Yep – no doubt it’s a ‘thing’ – and it’s good to know we’re not alone, Giovanna ?
