Anyone else experiencing it? I've heard after havin a baby you can lose hair but I figured since it haven't happened yet I was in the clear. For the past two weeks after I shower I am losing a ton of hair. It's insane and like coming out in clumps. It started after my period ended which was also when I got my hair colored, but I can't imagine it's from that because I've never had issues gettin my hair dyed before and I go darker not lighter so no bleach and stuff.

What gives?! I'm hoping it stops soon because I would prefer not going bald!

I was actually just noticing this over the past week or so. But with me, it isn't just after I shower. Its like all the time. Ive been finding my hairs everywhere! All over my pillow case, on my sheets, on my clothes, I even have been finding my hairs on Joshua! I was wondering what is going on, I hope im not going bald!

It's supposed to begin around 3 months and yep, it's happening here!! I'm actually ok with it because I have ridiculous amounts of hair and haven't had time to get it cut and thinned out, so this is helping!

Lol that's one way to look on the positive side Meg!

Also I'm relieved to know I'm not alone. Why does not start till 3 months?

Actually the more I think about it, I can put my hair into a ponytail and loose a lot of hair. My brush is insane right now! I'm sweeping the bathroom floor like every day it's really just blech!

I think I read that around 3 months is when your hormones start to level out. I just can't believe how much is falling out when I shower!!

I think a lot of it is all the extra hair that didn't fall out while we were pregnant. Mine isn't too bad yet and I'm hoping it will stay that way.

I keep finding my hair everywhere too, I just thought I was going through a natural hair cycle shed stage, I know once or twice a year I always have a period of time where I shed more than usual like during the season change.

I've never noticed this in myself, but I remember many girls from my old DDC complaining if hair loss after giving birth. What a strange phenomenon. I wonder what causes it?

Yep, happened to me after my son, but mine was maybe more like 4 months out? I know it was after a lot of the other DDC gals. It's from the pregnancy hormones finally leaving your body, it can affect milk production also.

I remember that when the hair that fell out started growing back, I had this one spot right on my part that just stuck straight out from my head no matter what I did. It sucks that now that that section is FINALLY blended in with the rest of my hair, it's going to happen all over again.

I'm having it like crazy! I'm also on Paragard and read that it can be caused by the copper.

Yep I've noticed it the past week or so. When I wash my hair I get huge clumps of hair out and then during the day I find hairs all over my shirt and Marshall.

I hope it stops soon becuase I noticed my hair is looking thinner where I part it at

Yeah I'm worried that I'll start getting patches. Luckily my hair is thick to begin with so I don't think it is that noticable (I hope)

Yup mine just started recently too, I thought it was because I gave up completely on breastfeeding recently. I have short hair though so it's not too unbearable lol.

I had this happen after both my older girls, but haven't noticed it yet this time around. I cut all my hair to chin length about 2 months ago so not sure if that could affect it or not.

I asked about this to my hair consultant that is hair fall is normal after having a child. He said that it depends on health. I was loosing hair and he suggested to take minoxidil 20 to stop hair fall. Last 3 months ago I started taking it and I saw that the hair fall is decrease than previous. And has no side effects like scale etc on head.

Thanks for the tip! I've actually since found out I have a thyroid issue and am on meds for it. One of the effects of having hypo thyroid ism is hair loss so I'm hoping these meds I'm in will help.

I am having this issue too. I actually clogged my shower drain because of it...not kidding. I had the same issue after having Madison and it eventually went away. I never lost enough for it to actually be noticeable. It is annoying none the less.
