  1. Hello Dear,

    Thank you for writing to us at MediMetry.

    Hair fall after delivery is due to Telogen effluvium. It's that stage of hair when shedding occurs. Routinely we have few hair falling daily due to this whereas others are in other stages of hair growth or arrest. During pregnancy under the influence of hormones, all hair are arrested and do not fall. Post delivery the fall occurs. So, concentrate on healthy diet that is high in proteins, zinc, iron and calcium. Hair cycle will resume again and growth will improve with time. If pattern of hair fall is patchy or breakage or due to dandruff etc, visit a dermatologist.

    Hope this answers your query. Feel free to write back to us with follow-up questions.
