Postpartum hair loss is the last thing you want to worry about after having a baby. But it happens to so many women. When you start to notice clumps of hair clogging the drain or tangling your hairbrush, you know it’s time to take action. Thankfully, there’s hope. Simply follow these tips to help bring those locks back to life. The best part: While you’re saving those strands, you’ll actually be saving yourself time. What new mom doesn’t love that?
1. Don’t wash your hair every day.
Washing hair every day strips strands of their natural oils. It may be hard at first, but washing every other day or every two days will do wonders to strengthen your hair. Plus, it’ll extend your hard-earned styling.
2. Replace your conditioner with a deep conditioner.
3. Supplement your healthy hair routine with biotin.
Biotin is part of the B-vitamin family and helps support hair, skin and nails. If you’re deficient in biotin, you may struggle with occasional hair breakage or brittle nails. But taking a supplement is an easy way to help meet your nutritional needs.*
4. Style hair only once per wash.
Blow drying, curling or straightening hair, obviously, leads to excessive heat damage over time. Reduce heat exposure by only styling once between washes. Who knows? You may actually love your second-day hair!
5. Repair hair overnight with oil.
Work oil into your entire head of hair, from scalp to tips. The intense moisture will help repair damaged strands. Some great options to try include, coconut oil, avocado oil, olive oil or almond oil.
