Many new moms experience postpartum baby blues after childbirth, commonly including mood swings, crying spells, anxiety, and postpartum weight gain. One of the postpartum blues, which is often ignored is hair loss. Postpartum hair fall is a serious health concern for every young mother. Hair loss not only makes women conscious but can also cause stress, which further invites an array of diseases. Though the market is flooded with enormous chemical-loaded hair care products, let us tell you experimenting with shampoos and serums will be of no use. Instead, all you have to do is keep a tab on your iron and calcium intake. Nutritionist Anjali Mukerjee, in her recent Instagram post, explains that the major reason behind postpartum hair fall is declining hormone levels in the body.
“Do not forget or stop to take the iron and calcium which your gynaecologists may have prescribed,” Anjali Mukerjee advises, further adding to also in-cooperate B-vitamins, and magnesium supplements.
