Postpartum Hair Loss And How To Grow New Healthy Hair!

Pregnancy comes with a lot of side effects for me, mostly negative like body aches, and nausea but it also has a few positives like my skin never looks better and my hair gets nice and thick. Unfortunately neither lasts forever and soon after pregnancy everything goes back to normal. The one thing I'm not looking forward to at all is the hair loss, and I'm doing everything in my knowledge to make this part not so dramatic by using and consuming things that will promote healthy hair growth.

 I started making (green) juices every morning rich in vitamins and proteins, also I make sure to drink half my body weight in water and take my prenatal vitamins. I am breastfeeding so the extra water and juices help me make more milk as well (win win) and stay hydrated and energized. These are some of my favorite hair masks to do, and I immediately notice a difference when I prepare these for my hair.

DIY Masks For Hair Growth

Mask 1: 
Egg Mask
Eggs – 1 or 2 (depending on hair length)
Olive oil – 1 teaspoon
Honey – 1 teaspoon

Take the egg white part and add all the ingredients into it
Mix it well to make it like a smooth paste
Now apply that paste all over your hair
Let it sit for about 20 minutes
Finally rinse it off with cool water and apply shampoo to your hair
Process has to be repeated for at least once in two weeks for better results.

Mask 2:
Banana (great as a face mask too!)

How To:
Take a banana (ripe one) and mash it to make a paste
Now massage this paste on your scalp and hair
Then cover your hair with a plastic bag like with shower cap or another one.
Wash it off with shampoo after leaving it for 45 minutes

Mask 3:
Avocado and Coconut Oil

Avocado – 1/2 ripped
Coconut oil – depending on the length of your hair

How To:
Heat coconut oil for 15 – 20 minutes
Massage your hair from top to bottom thoroughly
After that massage your tips with avocado paste
Leave it for about 10 – 15 minutes
At last, rinse it off with shampoo.
