Your Guide to Hair Regrowth After Pregnancy

Hair Regrowth After Pregnancy

Congratulations on becoming a mama! While pregnancy brings many changes to your body, one of the less glamorous side effects is post-partum hair loss. But don’t worry, you’re not alone.

Many women experience hair loss after giving birth, but the good news is that there are ways to bounce back and regain your beautiful locks. In this guide, we’ll walk you through daily habits, products, and treatments that can help with hair regrowth after pregnancy.

Understanding Hair Loss After Pregnancy: 

Hair loss after pregnancy, also known as postpartum hair loss or telogen effluvium, occurs due to hormonal changes during pregnancy. Typically, higher levels of estrogen cause hair to remain in the growing phase, resulting in thicker, fuller locks. 

However, after childbirth, the hormone levels drop dramatically, causing hair to shift into the resting phase and eventually fall out. This shedding is a natural part of the hair growth cycle and is temporary.

While it may seem scary, it’s important to understand that post-partum hair loss is super common and is nothing to be alarmed about. In fact, around 50-75% of women experience some degree of hair loss after giving birth. 

Luckily, there are many ways to speed up hair regrowth after pregnancy, giving you your pre-pregnancy hair in no time. 

Daily Habits & Hairstyles

During this special post-pregnancy phase, it’s important to take care of yourself and adopt a hair routine that promotes regrowth. Here are some tips to consider:

Prioritize Your Health: A healthy body leads to healthy hair. Eat a balanced diet rich in vitamins and minerals such as iron, zinc, biotin, and vitamin E. Stay hydrated and consider taking postnatal supplements specifically designed for hair health.

Gentle Care: Treat your hair with care to minimize breakage. Avoid harsh brushing or combing when it’s wet and opt for a wide-toothed comb to detangle. Avoid using hot tools and limit the use of hair ties or clips that can pull on your hair. Embrace low-manipulation hairstyles to reduce stress on your hair follicles.

Scalp Massage: Regular scalp massages promote blood circulation to the hair follicles. Gently massage your scalp in circular motions using your fingertips for a few minutes each day. 

Products for Hair Regrowth

Choosing the right products is essential for promoting healthy hair regrowth after pregnancy. That’s why our favorite dynamic duo is Kerastase Genesis Serum and Kerastase Serum Extensioniste.

Kerastase Combo

The Kerastase Genesis Serum is specially formulated to target hair shedding and prevent hair loss. It strengthens the hair fiber and reduces breakage, nourishing the scalp and promoting optimal hair growth. This serum focuses on preventing hair from falling out, providing a strong foundation for regrowth.

On the other hand, the Kerastase Serum Extensioniste is designed to promote new growth of hair. It works by strengthening and fortifying the hair from the root to the tip, encouraging healthier, longer, and more abundant hair growth. 

By combining the power of Kerastase Genesis Serum and Kerastase Serum Extensioniste, you can tackle both preventing hair shedding and promoting new hair growth after pregnancy. It’s the ultimate solution for achieving healthy and vibrant hair.


Another product to consider are Nutrafol supplements. Nutrafol Postpartum has been a game-changer for many women, including some of us here at Facetté. We’ve even seen it improve hair fullness, strength, and shine.

And as a new mom, we know your time is precious – that’s where Nutrafol comes in. This supplement is quick and easy to incorporate into your daily routine, so you can focus on caring for your little one while Nutrafol takes care of your hair! 

While these are our favorites, there are tons of options out there. When choosing hair growth products, look for ingredients like biotin, keratin, collagen, and botanical extracts such as saw palmetto or pumpkin seed oil. Avoid products that contain sulfates, parabens, and other harsh chemicals that can strip your hair of its natural moisture.

Treatment Options 

If you’re looking for more intensive treatments to accelerate your hair regrowth journey, professional options can make a significant difference. At Facette, we offer KeraLase, a med spa treatment that combines laser therapy with targeted serums to rejuvenate your scalp and stimulate new hair growth. The laser stimulates blood flow to the scalp, while the serums nourish and revitalize your hair follicles.

Remember, there are various treatments available, and it’s important to first consult with a professional to determine the best option for your unique situation.
