I've always had thick hair so there was no change from pregnancy to after pregnancy,

My hair changed! I used to have dead straight hair all through childhood, and even up until past marriage. Then when I had kids my hair got a wavy kick to it. It has thinned out a little, but it is easy to manage. I'm happy with my post-baby hair!!

All my lovely extra pregnancy hair fell out about 3 months PP. Then some of my pre-pregnancy hair did too.

It's all a lot thinner now sad.gif

I never had extra thick hair in pregnancy. I do have naturally very fine hair though but no change for me. I had awesome nails though and they are still pretty good.

Mine lasted till about 8 months before going back to its thinner former itself... if only I had gone back to my thinner former self too!

sorry, mine fell out too. In fact, I'm malting at the moment, there is hair all over the house!   Mine didn't go back to normal after DD, and now I think it is even worse.  Wont' know for sure though until I've stopped breastfeeding for at least 6 months.

***sigh***

My hair thickened up amazingly in my first pregnancy (as did my nails), so much so that I got a wave down through the back (at its thickest) and my hair is normally very straight. I kept waiting for it to fall out after the birth but had heard that BF can delay the hair loss? Not sure if there is truth in that but my hair never fell out. Then I fell pregnant with DS2 while still BF DS1 and it got even thicker again.

I am now pregnant with #3 (not BF) and my hairdresser recently commented on my hair being thicker than normal. I am wondering if maybe when I am finally done (this is our last), it will all fall out in one go! Both my sister and my mum suffered a lot of hair loss after having their 2nd child so it is probably in the genes.

I'm pretty much just enjoying it while it lasts! My nails are paper thin now though and tear very easily, they never recovered from the first pregnancy.

DS is 3 now and my hair is still how it was during pregnancy.

I went from really fine straight hair to slightly less fine curly hair, which is nice, but it was a nightmare learning what to do with it.

I went from thin, fine, dead straight hair to thick, fine, dead straight hair.

I like it. I can get a decent sized plait out of it now.

I did, for three months wink.gif Then I was malting worse than the dog. Hair everywhere, in everything. So much in the drain at shower time too! I'd say I'm back to before PG. Shame!

I didn't have much hair loss, it just dried out and looked terrible so I hacked it off. But, I have thick hair naturally so that may be the difference?

I had the opposite - had lots of hair falling out while I was pregnant. Every time I had a shower I had to clean the drain!

Then after birth my hair stopped falling out.

This.  Mine went horribly dry and frizzy.  My hairdresser said that it's not unusual for that to happen, sorry!

I didn't loose any hair after having DD but then I never got that lovely pregnancy hair in the first place. I never got that lovely glow either, I just looked green for 9 months.
