Hair Loss

My LG is nearly 4mo and I am suffering really badly with hair loss. I am panicking that if it continues to fall out the way it is I am going to end up with several bald patches. Has anyone else suffered with this and if so can anyone recommend anything to use to help.

According to my hairdresser this is completely normal- you lose minimal hair during pregnancy and apparently this is just that hair.

If it does seem too excessive and/or you're getting bald spots I'd check with your GP though.

Thank you, my hair loss never really calmed down during pregnancy but it is quite a lot. I can block the plug hole after 2 showers and i pull clumps out while showering amd throughout the day. I am also having to clean the hair out of my brush every 2-3 days.

I believe that is normal but it might be worth checking with your HV perhaps? Could just be hormones getting back to normal.

Mine has been awful it's just calmed down at 5.5months. Don't worry it will stop!

Are you BF?
