After you give birth, your estrogen levels take a serious dip... at about 3-6 months postpartum, most women will suffer the dreaded hair loss, or postpartum alopecia. Your estrogen levels are high during pregnancy. This high level of estrogen causes hair to remain in the growing phase and stimulates the growth of your hair... Most women will have a luxurious head of flowing locks during their pregnancy.
The downside however, is postpartum, when estrogen drops and higher levels of dihydrotestosterone are present in the body. Hair loss after pregnancy is a natural occurrence, but it can be helped. DHT in the bloodstream begins to bind with follicles and hair strands on the scalp. Once DHT is present in the hair follicle it immediately stops production of hair, causes the follicle to go dormant and in time the strand of hair falls out. The natural process of immediately starting another strand of hair is now diminished as the follicle remains dormant.
One way to help stop the loss of hair postpartum is by using a DHT blocker. There are many solutions on the market, but they are mostly chemical based and unsafe during breastfeeding. The only one that I know of that is naturally based, non-toxic, and free of all the harsh chemicals. Monat has helped many woman to diminish, or avoid the drastic hair loss following pregnancy.
With the active ingredient, Capyixl, derived from the red clover, Monat products are shown to decrease the presence of DHT by 48%. A simple shampoo, conditioner, and scalp spray could be your solution to the embarrassing and frustrating occurrence of postpartum hair loss.
As always, talk to your doctor, but most women have found Monat products, specifically the IRT line, to be a safe and more natural solution to postpartum hair loss and alopecia.
Having dealt with severe postpartum hair loss my first two pregnancies, and having had hair loss continue into my third pregnancy, I am thankful to have found Monat. Not only did my hair loss stop within 2 weeks, my hair has become longer and stronger.
