      Hair care

      Hair and hair care is the least problem faced by pregnant women. The secretion of estrogen is increased during pregnancy and the hair usually appears to be particularly nice and full. In addition, the estrogen allows the hair to grow faster at this time.

      Only a few women will experience to have oily or lifeless hair during their pregnancy. In this case, you can maintain your hair by using mild shampoo. If you are prone to hair breakage, split ends or dry hair, you can use hair care products for dry or damaged hair. You will be able to provide your hair with more body and shine by using a regular conditioner.

      Pregnant women should refrain from getting their hair coloured, especially during the first trimester as there are chemicals in hair dyes. Although it was demonstrated that there is no negative effect towards to the child, it is essential to take precaution and avoid dyeing your hair – or alternatively, you could use natural products.

      Some women may experience hair loss after birth, this condition may be temporary due to the decrease in estrogen levels. But not to worry, hair growth will return back to normal after a few months.
