• Keeping a healthy diet. After delivery, it not only helps you lose the baby weight, but it can also help you maintain your hair. Vegetables and fruits contain antioxidants and flavonoids which protect hair follicles and can encourage hair growth. You can also add in biotin, zinc, vitamin C, vitamin E, and vitamin B complex to your diet to prevent hair loss.
  • Choose a good shampoo. When you are looking for a shampoo, pick one with quality ingredients such as silica or biotin as these will help your hair stay healthy and increase follicle growth. Try to take heated styling tools out of your morning routine, at least until your hair loss seems to be slowing down or stopping. If you really need to use hot tools, always use the cool setting.
  • Cut your hair. It can also help prevent hair loss. It will get rid of split ends which can make your hair unhealthy. In addition, shorter hair will weigh less so that your hair follicles experience less pressure. It will also be easier to take care of, which is great for new moms with limited time.

Stay stress-free. Whenever possible, do your best to avoid stress as this could lead to increased hair loss. Try relaxation techniques or sharing responsibilities with your partner. If you stay stress-free, you will have a better chance of keeping your pre-pregnancy hair.
