A shift in the hormonal system post pregnancy and during the lactation period often leads to postpartum hair loss. Pregnancy causes hormone levels, including oestrogen, oxytocin and prolactin, to rise.
Postpartum hair loss, also known as Telogen Effluvium, is a natural phenomenon which happens to around 50% of women after they give birth. It usually lasts for a year, but in some cases, it can even continue lifelong.
The reason? High levels of hormones in your body during pregnancy stop your hair from falling off, leaving you with thick and luscious locks. However, post-delivery your hormones go back to their pre-pregnancy levels, plus lactation-induced hormones also have their effect. So, the hair fall that should have taken place during the nine months of your pregnancy, happens at once.
Postpartum hair loss can start any time after the delivery. If postpartum hair loss is not worrying you, avoid taking any homeopathic medicine for hair fall. But if you’re stressed, try homeopathy treatment for hair loss postpartum. It works!
