For more than a year I had a bad nightmare of having huge hair fall after pregnancy. It went to the level like my home floors always have bunch of hairs and after my shower my bathtub was full of my hairs.

So, why there is huge amount of hair fall?

For that firstly you have to know the stages of Hair growth. There are 4 stages of hair growth.

2.Regression Stage where hair follicles tends to shrink and get detached from the skin.

3.Resting Stage where the new hair starts to form under the detached hair.

4.Shedding Stage where the detached hair falls out from the scalp.

So, during pregnancy what happens is that the level of estrogen level increases in our body. So, the hair growth faces the first 3 stages. So only we tend to have thicker and longer hair during pregnancy.

Post Pregnancy the estrogen level decreases in our body due to which the hair growth faces the last stage which is the shedding stage. So, only we tend to have more hairloss at that time. This goes on until our body regains the estrogen level to a normal condition. That is why it takes up to 6 months to max 1 year to get back our normal hair.
