I can tell you with great assurance that there is nothing to worry about, that your hair loss is a temporary condition. With my first baby my head hair got thinner and I developed some hair on my face. After the birth it all went back to normal. For my second pregnancy I developed luxurious head hair and all the hair fell off my legs. Then I delivered and returned to my less attractive norm.

Hello,
Hair loss due to hormonal effects may be found in pregnancy. It is temporary. Your hair needs vitamins and minerals to grow that it can only get from the bloodstream. So if you want to speed up your hair growth and thickness you should limit the intake of fat and salts. Selenium, zinc and magnesium are some of the minerals that your hair needs and also amino acids and vitamin E will help in growing hairs. You can regularly massage scalp with oil, use protein conditioner to avoid loss and help growing, prevent exposure in hot sun etc.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
