Hair during pregnancy can undergo many changes which otherwise do not happen. Some women notice their straight hair becoming naturally curled and the opposite happens too. Due to the hormonal changes happening during pregnancy some hair growth is observed in various other places such as abdomen and back. Hair growth in cheeks, upper lip, hands and legs also increase during pregnancy.
The increased hormonal activity interferes with normal hair growth also delaying the natural cycle of hair fall causing increased hair thickness during pregnancy. Due to increased levels of estrogen during pregnancy, most of the hair remains in the growing stage and the hormone stimulates further growth of hair. Hair resumes its natural growth cycle after childbirth and most women notice increased hair fall after delivery. Hair fall after delivery is just the natural growth cycle of hair resuming where the increased “resting phase” of hair stops and starts falling all together. There is no need to panic when this happens as it is natural and your crown of glory will resume its original appearance after delivery.
