Gross hair?!

Hi, this has been really bothering me- I've not changed my hair care routine in any way but for the last 3 weeks or so the top of my head is getting really... oily?! I think? I don't know, I've never had this problem before so I'm not even certain whether that's the right description.

I heard I would have a full head of luscious pregnancy locks, but 25 weeks in I look worse than ever! It's trivial, I know, but irritating.

Am I alone?? Has anyone else had this, and what do you advise? Any particularly good shampoos out there. I'll have to upgrade from my trusty Head and Shoulders sad

Had exactly this! Bloody horrible eh. I used the t-gel medicated shampoo for greasy hair, really lifted that lank greasy patch.

THANK YOU. I thought I was imagining it... washed my comb really carefully, have started double-shampooing that patch really gently in case I'm not washing it all out or something... as if I didn't feel gross enough with the rest of my pregnancy-bod and symptoms...!

This happened to me.. I'm only 16 weeks but a couple of weeks ago I could almost feel the oilyness on top before I even stepped out of the shower! I switched to l'oreal elvive rebalancing shampoo and it has definitely helped..

This is the first sign for me that I'm pregnant every time. This time I ran my fingers through my hair and thought hmmm that's not good! A few days later bfp! It normally reduces for me in second trimester though! Think it's common though!
