It's one of the most dreaded tasks you do when dealing with postpartum hair loss. The refuge that "alone time" spent in the shower with water steaming & streaming down your face used to bring.....well that's gone. I didn't want a second job as "shower hair art creator"; but the shower art chose me... and let me tell you I created masterpieces that not only shocked but scared my husband. I'm a big hair product girlie so I thought what the heck; I'm going to try out what's out there in the world of shampoos, that might help with postpartum hair loss. I tried, tested, sniffed, and lathered a ton of products.. because well, you moms are worth it
Water accounts for about 25% of the weight of a single hair strand. Ensuring that you drink enough water energizes and supports hair growth all the way from the scalp to the ends of the hair strand. Dehydration can cause hair to stop growing. Your hair roots, are the only pipeline that water is supplied from the body to your hair so to put it simply; if you want your postpartum hair to grow back; you need to be drinking enough water. But how much is actually enough?
I hate the word saggy. My son was gifted a little golden book titled 'the saggy baggy elephant'. Saggy Baggy Elephant thinks her skin is too loose and that she doesn't look good enough. She races around trying to find out how to get nice sleek skin, until she finds a herd of elephants who tell her she is a perfectly dandy baby elephant. I hope I haven't spoiled the suspense of the story for anyone lol. Every time he picked that book for his bedtime story I would think of my "new" stomach and the saggy skin that bothered me so much. Bounce back culture put a lot of pressure on me, and admittedly I lost the weight...
My aunties are notorious for having nuts just readily available at their houses. A fancy plate of cashews, Jordan almonds (if you haven't tried these coated almonds you are missing out on a delicious treat), and now that I'm living in Hawaii, I'm the one sending out one of my favorites: macadamia nuts (mango chipotle might change your life, but anything with a little spice on it is amazing). I love a good generational secret weapon so this blog investigates if there is any truth to their recommendation. Although, based on the gorgeous hair affluent in the Arabic culture I was already leaning towards, they must know what they are talking about....but did they?
In the last year, I've come across testimonials from beauty guru's touting the benefits rosemary has for hair: prevents breakage, stimulates new growth, improves scalp circulation.. just to name a few! Ok, here's where it gets good. Rosemary has some incredible benefits for those going through postpartum hair loss. In fact it address many of the symptoms moms are going through.
