My hairs gone crap since getting pregnant.

I have naturally curly/wavy hair but it takes a lot of looking after to keep the curls so I just straighten it. Since getting pregnant though the front of my hair seems to be getting really short (like its singed off) even though I don't use heat on the front because of this reason! My ends are horrendous even after having it trimmed and I can't have it trimmed because its gotten so short!

Try evening primrose oil (have a chat to your midwife first to check it's ok for you to take). I started to take it in my third trimester for cervical-ripening purposes, but was really pleased to find that it did absolute wonders for my skin and hair.

My hair did the same thing. I have been using morrocan oil products and using oil treatments once a week and it seems a lot better xx

My hair is tons better, but the really weird thing is I'm usually very hairy on my legs, but since conception that's stopped growing and I've only had to shave them about twice!

I wish that was the case for me. I seem to be sprouting hairs everywhere its awful!! X

My hairs are growing quick too, I don't think I've ever shaved my legs so much.

My hair was crap in the first tri and I was spotty to boot. Second tri I had thick, glossy hair (first time for everything), great skin and almost no hair on my legs. Before you think it's a boast my pay off was weirdly long hair on my face and back! My DH ended up calling me his wolf... confused

Gave birth almost two months ago and my facial hair is going thank god! My hair is still nice but my skin has erupted. It's like I'm a teenager again... Sigh.

Every day I find a new white hair and I'm only 31! The hair at the front of my head is definitely thinning too. Bugger.

I have hairs growing out of my chin and face I look like the bearded lady!! Keep plucking them out but the little buggers grow back in minutes I'm sure of it!! X
