At post baby hair loss?

If I keeps going at this rate, ill be Phil Mitchell by the end of the month.

Please tell me it gets better?! sad

P.s why are all the emoticons bald - it's like they're taunting me.

Oh God mine came out in fist fulls. And that bullshit that they say 'Its just the extra hair you made when pregnant' is, well, bullshit!

Ive never had thin hair in my life (apart from when I brushed out my dreadlocks) but it was proper thin after I had my second baby.

It continued for 3 months but not at the same rate it slowed.

I feel your pain.

I no longer have hair, mere feathers.

Good hair cuts, good quality products, and get some Floriedix (sp) which is an iron and multi vitamin liquid thing.

It's really depressing! And everywhere. Shower drain, bath drain, floor, DD's hands, bed. It's disgusting and to top it off my hair dye is long overdue but im frightened to death to do it whilst its like this so I am walking around like an Eastenders extra aswell.

Will try those vitamins, thank you xx

Definitely gets better. My hair has always been thick and it felt like more than half my hair had disappeared. It seemed to peak at about 5 months and then gradually ease off.
I don't think there's a great deal you can do about it but if the hair loss isn't slowing down in a few months, I think the advice is go to the gp because it could be iron levels or your thyroid.
I hope it improves soon.
