During pregnancy, the hair changes. Most of us are lucky enough to have denser, less oily, easier to comb, more beautiful hair, in short: radiant with life. Unfortunately, it is sometimes the opposite for some unlucky ones who experience a loss of volume, health and shine. How to pamper them as they should be? Madam President tells you everything.
Hair care to adopt
That your hair is sublimated or worn out, the different changes that occur during the pregnancy require a change in your care routine.
And just because they look healthier doesn't mean you have to forget to take care of them! Choose your treatments according to the nature of your hair (see our article choose your shampoo). Of shea for dry hair, soft masks to calm the sebaceous glands oily hair that produces excess sebum. Also choose gentle care if you have normal hair.
Opt for a the most natural mild shampoo possible, to do every other day to enhance the shine of the hair. Then apply a detangling conditioner, this will make styling easier. Then, Once a week, make a hydrating mask. And don't forget to Rinse your hair well, finishing with cold water for maximum shine.
Do not hesitate to make you cut the hair if you feel like it, it will allow them to to strengthen and regain volume, then favor drying in the open air. And then, a new haircut is always good for morale!
Attention to deficiencies
Hair is a good indicator of general health. Often when we have deficiencies, stress or fatigue, we quickly observe hair that becomes flagada or that falls in mass. During pregnancy, these effects are less visible, but that does not mean that everything is perfect.
Of course, you know that pregnancy and color do not mix! Whatever happens, it is better to avoid applying any chemical product when you are pregnant (and even when you are not!). So we go organic or homemade cosmetics!
If you want to color and after discussion with your gynecologist, he sees no objections, it is better to entrust your head to a hairdresser, telling him that you are pregnant. So he can perform the assays in function and use vegetable colors, which are less aggressive. Be careful though, because during pregnancy, the hair can react in a strange way, with sometimes surprising color results (and not in a good way)
In all cases, avoid multiplying the treatments, because they weaken the hair fiber, and you may end up with damaged hair after childbirth. Above all, be sure to take care of colored hair.
We don't think much about it, but it may be wise to anticipate during pregnancy almost inevitable postpartum hair loss! Yep, when pregnancy hormone levels drop, their benefits drop with them.
Don't panic, it's normal and very common. Things usually return to normal after a few weeks, sometimes a few months if you are breastfeeding.
That said, to limit breakage upstream, make regular hair scrubs : the more your scalp is stimulated, the more it constitutes a fertile ground for your hair, which will not want to make the trunk.
Once the baby is in the arms and breastfeeding is finished, take a 3-month Resolution N ° 1 to help them pass the course of hormonal upheaval! Your hair, skin and nails will thank you 🙂
It's your turn ! ?
