Dramatic shedding of hair after giving birth

by Annabel Suarez
(Singapore)

I delivered a baby in September 2016 and my hair start to shed in December 2016 when my baby turn to three months and it's a dramatic shedding that cause me to worry alot. It gives me an irritated feelings. In the morning I don't comb my hair but you'll see hair on your pillow, floor everywhere you go, even when the wind blows. The most dramatic and depressing is whenever​ you are having your bath, combing and drying it up I've lost a day a 150 hair strand aside from those hairs the gets off my head every minute or hour. I don't see a place without my hair I can guarantee that wherever I sat down I leave a strands of hair on a chair or floor. Now I'm still suffering my baby is turning 9 months in June but I'm still hoping that in 22 months it will stop or else lessen the shedding. I'm so worried but I don't wanna cut my hair or if this will continue till I got no hair on my head or got a patch I'll rather use a wig and really try the clean cut. At this moment I'm just relying on vitamins and an expensive shampoos and hoping that a nightmare won't visit my life cos it's really depressing. Anyhow, I have my baby and hope this won't last forever.

"I just want to say in my capacity as pediatrician, teacher of pediatrics, and medical journalist, how very impressed I am by your website. I think your site is very thoughtful, not at all doctrinaire, and will be very valuable to mothers (and I think fathers, too in a second-hand sort of way) suffering from a variety of postpartum problems, of which the most common and perhaps the most serious is PPD. Anyway, thank you for your site, which I will certainly pass on to mothers in my practice."
