Female Hair Loss Information

Pregnancy and Childbirth - Mark Glenn Female Hair Replacement & Hair Loss, London, UK

Pregnancy and Childbirth

After giving birth, a large amount of the new mother's hair will go into the 'resting phase'. This is a period lasting two to three months, at the end of which the hair falls out and new hair begins to grow in its place.

As a result, some women may experience excessive hair loss. This condition tends to last anywhere from one to six months.

Hormones are vital in the hair growth cycle as they provide ‘signals’ to the cells informing them when to change function and when to move between the different phases of the cycle.

Abnormal changes in hormone concentrations within the body - e.g. during pregnancy - will therefore affect hair growth and consequently up to 50% of women experience hair loss following childbirth.

The hair should stabilise with time as hormone levels balance out.

How we can help

If you're concerned, the first step is to ensure the condition is properly diagnosed by your doctor or consultant so that you can rule out any other potential causes of your hair loss.

From a cosmetic viewpoint, in most cases we can use carefully applied, super-light  Mark Glenn hair extensions as a temporary measure to boost volume and/or length whilst your hair recovers.

Alternatively, where the loss is more substantial or thought to be long-term, our more advanced Kinsey System for female hair loss may be more appropriate.

We can advise accordingly during a free consultation at our London studio.
