Default Anyone have problems with hair loss after pregnancy?

I just had my baby in August and all of my shedded hair started coming out 3 months ago. My hair has finally stopped all of the shedding now. My hair is thicker but my edges are missing hair now. I already had a spot on each side of my edges that were thin and missing a little hair from damage years ago. Now I have hair missing in areas that had hair plus more in the parts that was already thin. I can't even pull my hair back and wear a puff now. Has anyone experienced this before? Did your edges finally grow back and did you use anything to grow them back?

I didnt but my close gf did. It took awhile before it grew back in. She is a Type 3 so it was very visible. She stopped wearing her hair up for about 6 months and just massage the area lightly before bed. Its since grew back in.


Im sure others will chime in with some other helpful tips

*raises hand*

My hair is pretty thick so most people didn't notice the shedding, except on the edges. It was definitely noticeable there. It did grow back in. I didn't do anything special. Just waited it out. It took about 3 months after the shedding started for it to slow down and about 2 more months until my edges thickened up.

Good luck.
