Top 10 Natural Remedies for Hair Loss After Childbirth

Hair loss has become an extreme problem nowadays. Majority of the people suffer from hair loss at least once in their life. Many people try artificial products for controlling hair loss and ultimately they end up with dissatisfaction. There are many stages of hair loss in life and hair loss after childbirth is one of the most common stages among women. In this article, I’ll be covering the reasons behind hair fall (post pregnancy) followed by the natural remedies for hair loss after childbirth.

Normally a woman has long and dense hair before childbirth which she likes very much but after having a child, suddenly hair fall begins. There is a scientific reason behind it. Our hairs are always in two types of stages, namely resting stage and growing stage. Hair fall happens after childbirth because of the variation in estrogen level. When estrogen level is high (before pregnancy), hairs are in growing stage and when estrogen level is low (post-pregnancy), hairs are mostly in resting stage. There can be a possibility of other conditions like abortion, hormonal imbalance etc. Most of the women experience hair loss after 1-3 months of delivery and this really annoys.

Although you can’t stop hair fall completely but, yes you can control it significantly by following these natural remedies for hair loss after childbirth.

Natural Remedies for Hair Loss After Childbirth

As per the American Pregnancy Association (APA), diet after child birth should be full of vitamins, minerals, and fibers. Diet should contain 60% fruits and vegetables and should be rich in anti-oxidants. Fruits like strawberries, cherries, plums, oranges, and grapes are suitable to control hair loss. Vegetables should include spinach, broccoli, peas, and soya. Diet without a long gap works well. Drink warm water after 45 minutes of a meal.
