As if we don’t have enough to worry about postpartum… might as well add hair loss to the mix!
People always tell you your hair will fall out after baby comes but no one really tells you any more details that that. So as the months passed by and my hair remained rooted to my head (other than the odd handful My Little would pull out, I truly though i had made it out of the “danger zone.” So trust me when I say I was surprised and somewhat shocked when 3 months postpartum , I was having a nice warm shower, washing my hair and the worlds largest chunk of hair came out in my hands. OK it may not have been the “worlds largest”, but I definitely was not exaggerating when I used the word CHUNK. It was a huge amount of hair and since than it has been falling out non stop, in unbelievably large quantities.
Now “they” say that you don’t lose any hair while your pregnant so its just your body making up for lost time and evicting all lovely visitors who have set up temporary residence on your head but its still a bit scary to see how much comes out.
Someone could have warned me that it may not happen for a few months and of the actual mass quantity of hair you would lose! Like come on ppl, I went through labour, I’m in the club… so warn-a-mother.
