Motherhood comes with so many amazing things. Postpartum hair loss is probably not on that list for most women. Navigating postpartum hair loss can feel intimidating. We gathered some information and resources to help you feel your best as a mother, both mentally and physically.
What causes postpartum hair loss?
Like so many other things in our bodies, postpartum hair loss can be blamed on changing hormone levels, specifically a decrease in estrogen.
Where can you learn more?
Since we are experts on hair extensions and not on postpartum hair loss, here is a list of articles full of tips, tricks, and information from trusted sources.
How we can help?
When we designed our Platform CUSTOM CLIP-INS creating a smaller extension geared toward hair loss was a no-brainer. That is where the 3" extensions come in. They come in a pack of two and work perfectly to add fullness back to the sides of the head, where postpartum hair loss is most common (and hair is naturally thinner). The clips do not require any teasing during installation to help minimize further damage.
