Post in collaboration with Harley Street Hair Clinic
There was not much I enjoyed about being pregnant if I’m honest. Even less so with my second pregnancy. I suffered with SPD and spent 6 months of the pregnancy signed off work. Plus the baby sat on one kidney and stopped it working. To be fair it was pretty rubbish. The only redeeming feature I can see when looking back. Was how fabulous my hair was. It was think and lustrous. A perfect glossy mane. So why does no one mention that this won’t last? Then you’ll be stuck with a whole host of post pregnancy hair problems.
These have been my worst post pregnancy hair problems.
Lack of sleep and struggling to get in the shower for five minutes. I know doesn’t help you hair to look great. But my god my hair has gone so dull looking. Now I have more time to care for my hair. I’ve been reaching for the extra boosting conditioners and serums to get the shine back.
You are prepared for feeling exhausting and for your body to not feel like your own post pregnancy. What I wasn’t ready for was seeing my hairbrush and plugs full of my hair. To make matters worse, when I’m tired or stressed I comb my fingers through my hair. I even do it in my sleep. It’s alarming when you wake up in the morning with a handful of your matted hair. If it got any worse I’d consider going to a Harley Street Hair Clinic.
I was always blessed by having thick, naturally wavy hair. Now there is no life to it any more and a lot of backcombing and hair spray are needed to get the thickness back.
Wispy baby hair
What the hell are these, new hairs growing around my forehead! They never seem to get any longer and they are a nightmare to try and tame. No sleek looks for me any time soon.
My future hair
Now that I no longer have plans for any more kids. I’m hoping with a little TLC by good hair will come back and I’ll eventually grow out the wispy bits!
