A post-pregnancy hair loss video has gained more than 3 million views after it highlighted the effects of pregnancy on hair shedding.
HaHA!!! Nothing like that Post Pregnancy Shed man!!!! You know the time, 4 months postpartum and you FILL that drain! I’m going through this myself and like to collect it on the wall of my shower ? Haha so grossly satisfying ?? This is just as good as scalp treatments!! Anyone else going through this!!! #licensedtocreate
The clip, first posted by Christina Kreitel from the US, showed one of her client’s hair loss during her trip to her salon. “You know the time, four months postpartum and you fill that drain,” Kreitel wrote. “I’m going through this myself and like to collect it on the wall of my shower. So grossly satisfying.”
An expert trichologist, Trisha Buller, explains that the hair cycle during pregnancy means this is normal and to be expected, but advises women to check their diet, shampoo and even consider supplements while pregnant to ensure a healthy head of hair.
