Who's Experiencing Hair Loss?

You know that gorgeous head of hair you rocked while you were pregnant? The mane so glossy and full it would make a Kardashian sister look like she hasn’t seen a deep conditioning in years? Well, many of those strands will jump ship right around the time you're beginning to settle into mommyhood. And no one warns you about just how much hair can fall out or that it can stress out even the most even-keeled mama. To help, we talked to the experts to find out what exactly is going on up top and how you can make the most with what you've got in the meantime.

Anyone dealing with hair loss right now?

It's been BAD this time. So bad my husband wanted me to go to the Dr. It was falling out in huge handfuls and was visibly thin. I had some other things going on that probably contributed to it. 15 weeks out from my c-section and it seems to only slightly be slowing down. My husband says that's because I barely have any hair left. Not fun.

I definitely noticed that I was listing a lot of hair but at first chalked it up to losing my winter mane(I have unusually thick hair to begin with. Then I made a comment about it to mil and she said no. So yeah I'm losing lots of hair but my nails are still killer so it's all good. :-)
