Stress, hormones, growth cycles, pregnancy — there are an abundance of factors that can lead to hair loss or thinning hair. A sensitive subject for all clients, our advice shouldn’t replace the advice of a medical professional, however, there are some tips we can offer from a hairdresser’s point of view. 

Common Causes of Hair Loss

Postpartum Hair Loss

You might have noticed during pregnancy that much of your normal shedding had stopped — this is because hair loss is often delayed while pregnant. After having a baby, shedding and hair loss is a common problem most women face. Often due to a significant change in hormones, many see postpartum hair loss concentrated around the front hairline. 

While some new moms swear by vitamins and supplements, others believe there isn’t much you can do to stop the dreaded postpartum hair loss. While much of this process is out of your control, there are a still a few things you can do.

  • Wear your hair down or in a protective style instead of pulling it up into a ponytail or tight bun
  • Give your hair the TLC it deserves by washing regularly and not overloading on dry shampoo
  • Air-dry whenever possible to cut down on extra breakage caused by heat styling
