Moms-to-be are often very happy that their hair seems much fuller during pregnancy, but they are then disappointed when they experience hair loss after giving birth. Losing hair after pregnancy is not true hair loss and is normal. Hair falls out after women give birth due to decreasing estrogen levels. Some women notice that they lose a lot of hair in a short period of time after giving birth. The good news is that after this shedding period, hair fullness often returns to normal within 1 to 2 years. While you are waiting for your full head of hair to return, use over-the-counter volumizing shampoo and conditioner formulated for fine hair to make your hair appear fuller.

The chances for real sides are non-existent.
