BEAUTIFUL POST-PREGNANCY HAIR
Pregnancy triggers dramatic hormonal changes and increased estrogen levels. These changes have a wonderful effect on hair, often making it thicker and less greasy, with natural hair loss brought to a halt. But after their baby is born, nearly half of all women experience post-partum hair loss due to a sudden drop in hormone levels. Luckily, there are no long-term consequences, as hair’s natural growth cycle is restored in the months that follow. But the short-term effects can be handled by getting into a few simple habits before and after your baby is born.
Targeted vitamins and cares during your pregnancy
Iron and vitamin deficiencies can exacerbate hair loss. If this is the case for you, your doctor can prescribe a powerful cocktail of iron, zinc, selenium and vitamins B and P, which you can continue to take three to six months after giving birth. Although hair feels much healthier during pregnancy, you still need to pamper yourself to avoid overly dry locks and any ensuing breakage. Take the time to enjoy a L'Huile de Leonor Greyl deep soak: before washing, comb a capful of product through your hair. Use mild shampoos such as the Bain volumateur aux Algues for combination hair or the Shampooing Reviviscence if you have dehydrated hair. Make masks a regular fixture in your beauty line-up: Masque Fleurs de Jasmin for normal and fine hair, Masque à l’Orchidée for thick or curly hair or Masque Quintessence for highlight- or color-damaged hair.
This magical moment is going to be captured forever, so you’ll want to make sure your hair looks its best! Forget dry shampoo, which suffocates the scalp and results in dull, lackluster locks. Remember to slip the Tonique vivifiant into your overnight bag. This refreshing, revitalizing toner is packed full of trace elements designed to restore hair’s natural volume. Spray across the roots and lengths, comb through and leave to air dry. For instant, glossy sheen without weighing hair down, apply a few drops of the Sérum de Soie sublimateur to the length and ends.
Your post-pregnancy anti-hair loss program
Two to three months after giving birth, hormone levels drop suddenly, which can result in quite significant hair loss. Don’t panic! Hair’s natural growth cycle is restored a few months later. To encourage regrowth and strengthen your hair fiber, follow Leonor Greyl’s anti-hair loss boot camp program: If you’re not breastfeeding, start by massaging the Régénérescence naturelle into your scalp. This is an intense blend of regenerative, health-boosting essential oils. Remember the rule of five: five drops applied to your roots, working in five sections of five centimeters is all you need for strengthened hair from root to tip! Follow up with a shampoo that suits your scalp type and a vial of Complexe énergisant containing yeast, Vitamin B2 and plant extracts packed full of trace elements. Go for full intensity with three vials a week for a month, dropping down to one vial a week for the next two months.
Our insider tip to maximize the effects of all your hair treatments: Massage the scalp using the pads of your fingers whenever you apply a product. This boosts blood circulation and helps the scalp breathe.
