Many new mums are alarmed to find their hair falling out shortly after giving birth, but don’t panic if this is happening to you! Hair loss in women is common, especially after giving birth. Hormones are the root of this problem. During pregnancy, the increased levels of oestrogen actually reduce the amount of hairs you lose every day, increasing the amount of hair on your head at one time. However, once those hormones taper off, for up to 50% of women experience thinning hair.
This hair loss in women is completely normal and will stop once your hormones level out. The stress and exhaustion that comes with a new baby can also take its toll on your body, primarily on your locks.
Whilst your body is getting back to normal, you can take some measures to keep your hair looking gorgeous and strong.
Here at Grow Gorgeous, we’re dedicated to helping you get your best hair ever. All of the ingredients in our products are highly concentrated, meaning that they really work – fast. (Don’t believe us?! Read our reviews!)
Whilst we’d recommend all of our products to help combat hair loss in women and add some vitality back to your hair, some of them are absolute MUST haves for post-pregnancy hair loss.

Gifted | Let me tell you how crazy pregnancy hair care can be…probably almost as crazy as post partum hair. In my first pregnancy my hair fell out dramatically, thinning pretty much to nothing, then when ru was born it was growing in all different directions. It was starting to get back to normal…then I got pregnant again and the process began again. I love using @growgorgeoushaircare hair density serum as it gives a new sense of life and volume to my thinning, breaking hair. An absolute god send and perfect for pamper evenings. whats your go to hair products? • * I was kindly given these under no obligation to post but I have worked with this brand in the past.

Why do you need these in your post-pregnancy haircare routine?
For the same hormonal reasons, the sebum production on the scalp can become disrupted. Once this starts to happen the natural microbiota present on the scalp and can also be thrown out of balance causing dandruff.
Our Technical Director Robin Parkes explains: “This, in turn, can lead to a build-up of dead skin cells on the scalp which is what causes the itching and flaking. The Balance Product Range has been carefully formulated to give your hair and scalp the best chance of restoring this natural, symbiotic balance.
“Designed to help maintain a slightly acidic pH and formulated without aggressive detergents the routine will help the scalp help itself in returning to a healthy balanced state.”
