Very major postpartum hair loss. Hairline has receded and all hair is wispy, fine, and looks a bit Bobby Charlton in places.
Am devastated.
What can I do?!?! Help!!!

Get a blood test. You could need iron or b12 or have a thyroid issue. If it's wispy though it will improve. You have sympathy it's horrible but hair always false out post partum.

Oh bugger. I am a bit shit at taking multivitamins .... Just been and bought beautiful scarves to make turbans in the meantime. Turban and red lips .... That's glamorous.... Right???

Take post natal vitamins.. You have to persevere with these and a good diet.

Shave it all off, wear a fabulous scarf until it starts growing back - own it!!
YY to red lips!

Turban and red lips (poss. add sunglasses?) sounds a very glam new mum look...

Postpartum hair loss is normal. But if you feel it's excessive, a blood test could be a good idea. Whilst you're there ask which vitamins and minerals could help.
