Tips on managing post-partum hair loss, excessively greasy scalp, dry ends or any other hair disaster after delivering a baby
If you've ever had a baby, you know. Your once dreamy, glorious pregnancy locks turn into a nightmare of a mess on your head. Some women get super greasy. Some get super dry. If you're me, you get both! Greasy roots with really dry ends. And either after you deliver or after you're done breastfeeding, it all starts to fall out. It's one last treat that nature throws at you after you've dealt with the hormonal roller coaster of having a baby. Fear not though! There are some ways to curb this dreaded post partum hair phase.
I got pregnant in the fall of 2013 and was shocked at how easy my hair was to style! It was thicker, shinier, and actually held a curl. My whole life, I've had fairly thin hair that was hard to style. It doesn't hold a curl long and certainly lacked volume. So once I was pregnant, I was in awe of my hair! It was amazing. Even though pregnancy wasn't my jam, I had nine months of hair bliss.

A few months later, my grease mess head of hair started falling out. I was to the point where I really didn't think I would mind losing my hair, because it was so gross. But then more and more started falling out. I could literally pull clumps of hair out! I thought I was going to have nothing left. I would produce massive hair balls after combing and drying my hair in the morning. It was so alarming.
This time around (after delivering Otto), I'm much better prepared! I knew what was coming my way and got the tools ready to combat post-partum hair problems. One of my favorites is NEW Dove Regenerative Nourishment Collection from Dove Hair. It gently washes away excess grease and moisturizes my dry ends without weighing my fine hair down. Just as awesome as the product is the fact that I can pick this up during one of my Target runs - no extra trips to specialty stores or salons, which this new mama appreciates. Dove Hair thinks that every moment of your hair journey is a special one, even when your hair is a post-partum mess like mine was before I found these Dove Hair products!
