Coping with Postpartum Hair Loss

Bringing a new life into the world is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful experiences a woman can have. However, amidst the joy of motherhood, many new mothers find themselves facing an unexpected challenge: postpartum hair loss. If you’re experiencing this, you’re not alone. Postpartum hair loss, also known as postpartum alopecia, affects a significant number of women after childbirth. Here at Modena Hair Institute we help many new mothers to combat the loss.

Postpartum hair loss typically occurs around three to six months after giving birth. During pregnancy, hormonal changes prolong the hair growth phase, resulting in thicker, fuller hair. However, once your baby arrives, hormone levels plummet, causing the hair to shed as it returns to its normal growth cycle. This shedding phase can be alarming, with clumps of hair seemingly falling out. Dr. Amir Yazdan highly recommends starting his protocol of PRP with Acell treatments which helps reduce shedding and rejuvenate the hair follicles.  Another way to cope with postpartum hair loss is to opt for a nourishing, sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner to promote healthy hair growth such as groMD shampoo which is filled with active ingredients to fight hair loss.

Don’t hesitate to reach out to our offices  at (949) 374-2563 if you’re feeling anxious or unsure about your postpartum hair loss. Dr. Yazdan is more than happy to offer guidance, and recommend safe and effective treatments.
