Recently, reality star/business woman Toya Wright shared that she too, just like many postpartum mothers, suffers from postpartum alopecia.


It is not unusual for a mother to experience shedding hair in the first two to six months after giving birth. However, the experience can vary among women. “Not all women will experience this condition, and some may experience it in one pregnancy but not another,” stated David Salinger, the Sydney, Australia-based director of the International Association of Trichologists in a recent interview. (Trichologists specialize in the treatment of scalp and hair issues.)

If you are someone that you know are suffering from postpartum hair loss, here are some coping mechanisms to deal with the stress of losing your locks.

  1. Know that you are not alone! 90% of new mom’s experience some sort of hair loss.
  2. Know that every mom is different. Some will lose a lot of hair where others will only loose a few strands if any.
  3. Know that your hair will grow back, after about six months. So, don’t freak out!
  4. Know that there are ways to help minimize hair loss: take your vitamins, eat a protein-rich diet, minimize stress, and visit a dermatologist or trichologist.
