How is postpartum hair loss diagnosed?


There are quite a few DIY hair masks you can try to nourish your scalp and hair.

Avocado is packed full of nutrients. You can take a ripe one, mash it up, and put it on your hair/scalp as is or add a tablespoon of coconut milk for more nutrients.

Eggs and mayonnaise are classic hair masks that can provide your scalp and hair with a lot of nourishment. You can also regularly massage your scalp 1-2 times per week using a quality oil like castor oil, olive oil, or almond oil.

Some herbs can also be very beneficial. Fenugreek, especially, can help to treat postpartum hair loss.

All you need to do is soak some fenugreek seeds in water overnight. Then, apply that water to your hair and scalp, and leave it sit a few hours before washing with natural shampoo.

Gotu kola is a popular Ayurvedic herb that is often used for hair loss and to strengthen hair. It can be taken as a tea or powder or used as an oil or powder as part of a hair mask.

Horsetail and nettle leaf are two other wonderful herbs for strengthening hair and promoting growth (nettle is high in iron and horsetail is high in silica which strengthens hair).

To make a simple hair rinse, combine equal parts of dried nettle and horsetail. Steep about 1/3-1/2 cup of the mixture in 2 cups of boiling water to make a strong tea. After it cools, pour it over your head and hair and let it sit for 10-15 minutes before rinsing out.

You can also use the nettle leaf to make tea and drink it so that you’re getting the iron and other nutrients to help your hair from the inside out.

Also, try this Iron Tominic Tea that will help stop hair loss that’s due to low iron levels.
