The 7 Best Postpartum Hair Loss Vitamins

Giving birth and all that follows is taxing on your body—it takes a lot of nutrients to keep you and your baby healthy in the first few months and beyond. While you may be too busy rushing around, adjusting, (or just generally not putting your newborn down) to eat every meal, a vitamin is a good crutch. Not only are vitamins essential for general well-being, but they’re also your first line of defense against postpartum hair loss.

My hair started shedding around the three to four-month mark. Luckily, it steadied around six months. I partially think it’s because of vitamins. Here are some of the best postpartum hair loss vitamins and supplements out there to prevent or stop thinning after having a baby. As always, consult your doctor and/or pediatrician before starting any new vitamins—especially when you’re nursing. Whatever you ingest is going into the baby’s body as well.
