Pregnancy hair

I thought hair was supposed to get better in pregnancy but mine has gone lank and greasy and seem to be sprouting lots of tufts of fine hair along hair line/parting which make hair look frizzy.

Anyone else experienced this?

Not sure if the tufts are because I have had two miscarriages before this pregnancy almost back to back. And this I the culmination of constant hormonal changes.

12weeks now. Waiting for the good hair that i was promised to come!

Eurgh my hair has gone brittle and dry and I can't do anything with it :/ I have tried a heavier conditioner and that made it greasy at the roots and the rest was still bloody dry! Can't win!

My hair was the exact same until around 20 weeks and then it got nice and shiny and thick. I lost a baby at 20 weeks last year and I have the same frizzy bits and the front and around parting. My sister is a hairdresser and says its most likely new hair growth from after I lost the baby last time.

Mines not lank or greasy (yet!) but I'm 14 weeks and for prob 3 weeks I've noticed far more strands of hair falling out, getting in my eyes all over the place. Odd! Must all be related...

I put it down to anaemia. Get quaffing the iron and soon you'll see the glossy locks
