My first 9 months of pregnancy were kind of a breeze. I mean sure I felt uncomfortable; and had my fair share of leg spasms and insomnia, but for the most part it was manageable. After giving birth I thought it would be all downhill, boy was I wrong. About 4-5 months after giving birth I had: Weight I couldn't lose Irritability Bloating Exhaustion Varicose Veins (I even had surgery to remove these!) It wasn't until after my second pregnancy that I stumbled upon the amazing benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV). Initially, I was frantic to find anything to help me get over my weightless plateau but I've since learned some pretty perfect benefits of taking ACV for new...
About 3 months after I delivered, I found myself looking for specific advice on how to deal with my shedding hair. Looking back, what I found was a lot of misinformation. I'm here to shed some light on some of the biggest myths regarding postpartum hair loss I saw out there.
If you have started to notice more hair on your hairbrush again or on the bathroom tile, this may be more than just remnants of postpartum shedding. As summer comes to an end in most parts of the world (Hawaii and the Bahamas you can just ignore this), and fall/winter fast approaches, so does seasonal hair shedding. Studies show that seasonal hair loss affects more women than men, and typically occurs during the fall months like September and October.
While many Mom's were worried about selecting the perfect car seat and crib for their newborns arrival. I spent my nights researching how to lose the postpartum weight as quickly as possible. But, does dieting after having a baby cause more hair loss?
