8 Simple Tips For Hair Care During Pregnancy

Hair Care

Pregnancy is undoubtedly one of the most amazing phases of a woman’s life.

As you prepare to nurture the little one growing inside you, your body goes through various changes. Most of these changes experienced during this period are due to the hormonal changes taking place within. These extra hormones in your body may create a change in your regular hair cycles. Your hair may look thicker and have more bounce than it did. Or your hair may grow overly frizzy, dry, or even curly. Some women may experience a large amount of hair fall.

In most cases, with proper care and a good diet, hair is restored to its natural condition within 6 months of delivery. Taking care of your health during these special nine months is crucial to the health of your hair and skin and your overall well being.

How to take care of your hair during pregnancy

1. Hair Massage:

A great way to take care of your hair during pregnancy and to relax at the same time is by indulging in a good hair massage.

Oil your hair at least three to four times a week. Using natural hair oils is a great way to add some nourishment to your hair. Opt for oils that have healthy ingredients like olive, coconut, almond, jojoba, castor and the like. Heat up the oil slightly, making sure it is not too hot, but just warm. Massage this through the scalp and hair.

This will help strengthen the roots and prevent hair fall. You can wrap a warm towel around the head to add some extra benefits.

2. Shampoo and Conditioning:

Make sure you use a shampoo at least once to twice a week.

Use a mild shampoo, or better still, use a shampoo that is herbal. Apply a conditioner every time you wash your hair. Pay special attention to the tips of the hair to avoid dry or split ends.

As you progress in your pregnancy, washing your hair becomes more and more difficult. Ask your partner to help you with this.



Hi, I'm Sophia and welcome to my blog.

I have always been obsessed with hair. I have wavy, frizzy hair and I've been straigtening it since I was 12. I have changed my hair at least a hundred times over the years, trying new colors and tones, and falling victim of that 'new trendy haircut'. But after all, I realised it doesn't matter how you hair is, as long as it is HEALTHY.

I created this blog to share everything that I have learned about how to care for your hair and to help others who need a hand finding the best tips and products.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you find something to help you along the way.
