  • Hair loss 18 motnhs after having baby?!!!!

    Hi guys,

    Im starting to experience hair loss and im wondering if anyone is in the same boat as i am?
    I had my daughter 18 months ago and thought that i got away with the whole shedding issue as it never happened however,now my hair is falling out a lot when i wash it or am in the shower.
    Im wondering if this could be delayed shedding?!
    Ive had all of my bloods checked which came up with nothing and I dont really feel stressed with anything....apart from the fact that my hair is falling out which is majorly getting me down!!

  • If it never happened to you at around 3 months, it may be that it's happening now! Giving birth kicks off a new growing cycle in your hair, which I guess in most people lasts 3 months, but it could be that it lasts 18 for you. I know when I reached three months post-partum, it was raining hair every time I showered or brushed!
    Then again, losing hair can be a symptom of serious illnesses too. Are you eating properly, especially if you're nursing? Do you have any other negative symptoms?

    • gave birth or pregnancy is also the cause of hair loss in women. it can affect your hormones. The testosterone could be converted to Dihydrotestosterone. The natural way to prevent your hair fall is the use of Leimo bio cleansing shampoo or any proven hair loss shampoo. Leimo products work for both men and women. I had read from the reliable source that Prince William got cured by Leimo product.
