  1. How interesting! I know that a lot of ladies cut their hair after having a baby, I just assumed it was due to having less time / less hair for the baby to grab – but I’d never thought of this…. ! Great tips too x

    • I think that’s part of the reason too. I loved my long hair, but 90% of the time it was just tossed up into a messy pony tail or bun because I didn’t have the time to do anything else with it.

  2. Great hairstyle! Strangely enough I didn’t loose a lot of hair, but I lost a lot of time trying to wash it (had long long hair) and with a young baby it was quite difficult lol

  3. I love your new hairstyle! Since I have never been pregnant, I didn’t realize how much hair you could lose just from being postpartum. Very informative post! 🙂

    • We had a discussion about this in my MOMS Club, and it seemed that the moms who had boys lost a ton of hair after, but if they had a girl, the hair loss wasn’t as bad. I’m not sure if there’s any scientific research supporting this, it just seems to work out that way.

  4. I’ve had both long and short hair as a mom, and I find short hair so much easier! My toddler has less to get ahold of or fall asleep on. lol

  5. I’m so sorry you had to go through this! I LOVE my long hair, and I would hate to have to chop it off because of post-partum hair loss. I chose to cut mine off because I thought I could rock the long bob, but it just wasn’t meant to be. God gave me great thick/wavy hair for growing out long, so that’s what I’m going to do until I can’t anymore! But these are great tips!

    • I think I love the idea of long hair more then I actually enjoy having long hair. When it’s long I don’t really know what to do with it, when it’s down kids pull it, and when its up, it’s usually half falling out anyways.

    Omg! I love this post. I mean I am not a mom but I agree with you on chopping down hair. I used to have long hair too but now I prefer short hair as it feels more refreshing. I think my I am going to start eating more food you shared!

  7. I didn’t experience this at all with my first two kids and it was a bit of a shock with my 3rd. It turns out, I’m kind of vain about my super thick hair that I have complained about my whole life. I didn’t cut mine off, but it finally stopped! Great post and great tips for healthy hair overall.

  8. Such a great post! I had it with my first kid, and it compounded with the anesthesia from open heart surgery three months later. ALL THE HAIR, y’all. I’ll have to keep these tips in mind. I chopped my curly, waist-length hair off after getting married and cried for days, so chopping after baby isn’t a thing for me. I’m so glad you included other ways to help your hair recover!

  9. Hair loss is a challenge for us women, but I think the products used by you could really help in this problem. Thank you so much for sharing!

  10. I have not experienced this much hair loss, but maybe because I do some of the things that you listed. I had no idea that you could eat certain foods to help with this!! Thanks for the list!!

  11. Oh wow…my husband and I are trying and there are some things you just don’t know right away about pregnancy. Thank you for sharing this! I will definitely refer back to this when I’m closer to delivering.

  12. I really dig your hair cut, it’s very modern. I’ve switched to sulfate free shampoos, and there is a cactus oil leave in conditional that prevents fall out. It smells heavenly. Very informative post and good information.

  13. HAir Loss post my delivery was a big issiue for me So I did cut my hairs. But I miss my long hair sometimes. Loved reading your post. thanks for sharing.

  14. Argh postpartum hair loss is the worst! Really felt like I was going bald with how much hair I was pulling out every time I brush. Good thing they do grow back after awhile!!!

  15. It”s really tough to deal with hair loss generally but in the end your new look is fantastic. Keep a healthy diet now and soon you will have long hair again.

  16. This is really a common problem. Everyone is sick of hair fall problems. I didn’t knew about the fact behind cutting hair after baby. Something new I learned. I need to keep a check on my hair as well. They have started to say bye now. 🙂

  17. I had it the worst with my son, and got it but not as bad with my daughter. It is a pain! And super frustrating. Thanks for the tips!

  18. The new hairstyle is lovely! I suffered a lot of hair loss after my third (and last) baby, but it seems to still be going strong almost 4 years later. I think I just shed more than normal. ha I will definitely be trying some of the foods you suggested though and maybe it will cut down on it some for me. Great post!
