Becoming a mother is a time of tremendous adjustment – a baby brings endless joy along with a lifestyle shift.
Everything changes, from the way you view the world, to your relationships, to what you spend time on. Needless to say, there are winners and losers in the time management plea bargain that becomes everyday life. The women who “do it all” with no issue are either lying or have a) help b) more hours in the day somehow c) no sleep.
Though time may feel like the ultimate commodity, I’ve rounded up some hair solutions that will revive postpartum hair quickly and effectively. Whether you’re shedding, experiencing dryness, or postpartum alopecia, here are some of the best products on the market that offer all types of fixes – from an instant thickening spray, to a bun extension, to an entire treatment regimen, and a vitamin – that every new mom, myself included, needs in their life come Mother’s Day.
Baby Blues Prenatal Vitamins: $29
Pregnancy depletes your body of nutrients which makes it hard for hair to grow. Coupled with a dip in hormones, new stress, and lack of sleep – equals a definite mandate to take your vitamins, especially if you’re nursing! These tasty Baby Blues treats are created by a mom and packed with hair-growing nutrients like Vitamin C, Zinc, and Iron – I take one as soon as I wake up.
