I lost SOOOO much hair after Liam was born. Globs and globs of it would come out during a shower, all of it wadding around the drain at the bottom of the tub. It was so gross and so depressing.
I had heard that pregnancy hormones keep a woman's hair from falling out WHILE she is pregnant, and I had expected to lose some after delivery, but I just couldn't understand why it continued. My hairline looked thinner, and I noticed the absence of newly sprouting short hairs that used to frame my forehead.
Eventually, I began to think that pregnancy had nothing to do with my continued hair loss and that instead I was being affected by old age, stress, and fatigue. Blah.
But, praise God, somewhere between 5 and 6 months after delivery, things changed. Less hair falls out. New baby hairs are growing again. And I'm giving credit to either my finally-stabilizing hormones or the re-introduction of my favorite shampoo: Matrix Biolage.
