Most adults lose around 100 strands of hair per day, but new moms may notice they are losing more hair than that. In the first few months after giving birth, an increased amount of hair loss is perfectly normal and is a sign that your hormone levels are returning to pre-pregnancy levels. This high-level of shedding will subside in about 12-months, and your hair will return to its pre-pregnancy thickness as well.
If you are experiencing hair loss that doesn’t seem normal, it’s important you contact your primary care provider for a check-up. After ruling out medical conditions, if you think the hair loss you are experiencing may be a permanent form of hair loss and you are interested in what restoration options are available to you, Bosley suggests that you set up an appointment for a free consultation with a Bosley counselor and physician. During this free consultation a Bosley Professional can help you determine your hair loss solution which may include topical treatments, the Bosley Lasercomb, or a permanent hair loss solution, i.e. hair transplantation.
