My postpartum hair loss started around 4 months after baby arrived. My daughter just turned 7 months and yes, the hair loss is still an ongoing issue.
Luckily I am able to test products to help grow, add volume, and strengthen my existing strands to prevent further hair loss from happening. After months of use, I am happy to report some fantastic hair thinning/loss solutions that may help you too, whether your hair loss is hormonal, or you have naturally thin hair.
To Encourage Hair Growth
F.A.S.T. Shampoo and Conditioner* ($34.95 at Rexall, select Trade Secrets and fine hair salons). This works, guys. Anyone that I talk to who’s tried it agrees with me. This is one that you just have to keep using for several months to see results, but it will be worth it. I used this during my pregnancy and my hair grew like weeds, and now as a mommy with hormonal hair thinning issues, I am still seeing fast hair growth while I use this hair system. If you are trying to grow out your hair, you need this.
To Instantly Lift Hair at the Roots
NIOXIN Diamax Advanced Thickening Xtrafusion Treatment* (in select hair salons, Ulta). This is a fantastic root lifter and overall volume booster. Spritz on at the roots while your hair is damp and massage in gently. After I blow dry, this treatment plumps up each strand with its thickening ingredients and really creates a look of a fuller head of hair.
To Strengthen and Reduce Breakage
Kérastase Paris Initialiste Advanced Scalp Hair Concentrate* ($56 in select hair salons). This one isn’t new to me (click here for 7-day challenge), and I still believe that it works. This is a treatment for your scalp rather than your strands. It makes my hair soft and manageable, strong against breakage, and more substantial.
To Extend Time Between Hair Washing
Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo ($29 at Sephora). I admittedly am still not 100% on the dry shampoo bandwagon, but I have to say this is the best one that I’ve tried out there, and it comes highly recommended by many. This one feels less grimy than others, smells great, and absorbs oil well.
