i know this is posted late but i had similar problems after my baby as well. my hair was lot like lovemylocks said hers was. it took a long time for my hair to stop shedding excessively (almost 3 years). have you tried birth control pills? that was suggested to me at the time. i took them for a year but didn't see a change while i was on them. you may have better luck. . Nioxin also has hair vitamins as well. i use these now. i eventually got a hair cut and that is part of what put me on the path to being natural.
