If postpartum hair loss does not recover after 6 months, it is desirable to diagnose and treat it immediately rather than waiting vaguely for recovery.

What is postpartum hair loss?


Postpartum hair loss refers to the rapid hair loss that women experience after childbirth. Hormones are the main cause of hair changes during pregnancy and postpartum hair loss.

This is compounded by anemia due to childbirth and hormonal changes.

The relationship between postpartum hair loss and hormones


During pregnancy, drastic changes in hormones increase levels of several other hormones, including estrogen, progesterone, oxytocin, and prolactin. During pregnancy, blood flow also increases, increasing by more than 50% of its normal volume by the due date of birth. As soon as your baby is born, the levels of hormones, including estrogen and progesterone, will drop rapidly and return to near normal levels within 24 hours of giving birth.

Blood flow also decreases slowly and returns to normal a few weeks after the baby is born. As your hormones stabilize, the effects of pregnancy-related hormonal changes on your body will slowly subside and your hair will return to normal.

When does postpartum hair loss start?


Postpartum hair loss refers to the rapid hair loss that women experience after childbirth. Hormones are the main cause of hair changes during pregnancy and postpartum hair loss.

Postpartum hair loss can occur any day after the baby is born. In theory, postpartum estrogen levels drop, causing the hair follicles to enter a resting state and less hair to grow. And after about 100 days, the hair starts to fall out, sometimes it can last for a year, but usually peaks around 4 months.

How long does postpartum hair loss last?


Although it may vary from person to person, postpartum hair loss usually begins about 6 months after childbirth and should return to pre-pregnancy status within 12 months.

If it's been a year and you still have lumps of hair in the comb, and thin hair is maintained, it is recommended to check if there are any additional causes of hair loss.

* In some cases, a thyroid disease, such as underactive thyroid disease, may cause hair loss.

Pregnant and lactating women should not take minoxidil


 Minoxidil is a hair growth agent that can be used for both men and women. It was originally used as a vasodilator, and as blood vessels dilate, it has the effect of inhibiting hair loss, so it is used as a hair loss drug.

  Currently, no technology has been developed to cure hair loss, so once you take it, you must continue to use it. 

  Not for use in women under the age of 18, pregnant or possibly pregnant, and lactating women as it may be harmful.

honest care


We do not recommend treatment to patients who do not need treatment.

Treatment is decided by prognostic diagnosis, and those with a high probability of natural healing are not treated immediately, but only observed.

We propose an appropriate hair loss treatment plan in consideration of the patient's scalp condition and hair loss progress
