The Duchess of Cambridge's post pregnancy problem
Do you notice something different about the Duchess of Cambridge?
Ok, ok you’ve worn me down, I’ll tell you. It’s her hair. The once most envious locks (that even Jennifer Anniston herself claimed to be jealous of) have been looking a little lacklustre ever since the birth of Prince George.
Don’t get me wrong, she’s still absolutely stunning, but her hair seems to have lost its shampoo-commercial-worthy shine.
It seems so unfair that after carrying around extra weight for nine months and then pushing out a small human, women then have to deal with less than lustrous hair. Who came up with that genius concept?
“During pregnancy, increased levels of estrogen prolong the growing stage of hair,” reports babycenter.com, which means hair becomes thicker, shinier and quite luxurious throughout pregnancy. But then, “after you give birth, your estrogen levels take a tumble and a lot more hair follicles enter the resting stage.” And what comes after the resting stage? Hair loss! Bloody brilliant.
Thankfully, there are a few products that can help with post pregnancy hair and get it back to its pre-baby glory days.
Post-pregnancy hair products to try: APIVITA PROPOLINE Women’s tonic shampoo for thinning hair, Lush Big (vegan), SCHWARZKOPF EXTRA CARE HAIR CARE Ultimate Oil Elixir Serum, Paul Mitchell Volumising Spray and Klorane Strengthening Serum Spray (which is especially formulated to provide a boost for women suffering with thinning, suffering and limp looking hair following pregnancy or stress and fatigue.)
