Breanna Rutter


Hello everyone this is Breanna Rutter author of one of my most popular books The Natural Hair Bible and founder of for these videos I love answer the questions that you are send me via email so if you have any questions you like me to answer check out the description box below for more information this video is because of an email I received from Trina and Trina goes on to say that she is having excessive shedding after she's had her child her child is 3 months old and this is her second child so she doesn't understand why with her first child she didnt have as much shedding a lot that she does the second child and what can she do to get her hair back normal because she so afraid of losing all this hair so Trina I'm going to help you along and help you to understand that this is perfectly normal and I'm going to tell you some things as the why this is happening so first off after you have your child about 3 to 4 months when a child turns 3 to 4 months old you're going to noticethat you will be losing a lot of hair and for some women this can be at an alarming rate some women don't notice as much or is not affected as post partum shedding so this is just a natural reaction to your body after everything is going back into place and becoming more balanced after your child which leads me to the second thing is that why you're pregnant you have a higher level of estrogen in your body a higher level of estrogen will prolong both phases of your hair growth cycle normally the growing phase which is the anagen phase so you're going to be growing your hair and its going to look thicker is to get longer and its going to be full of body and then it also minimizes the telogen phase which is the fallout phase this is due to an increase in estrogen in your body so about 3 to 4 months after you have your child all of your hormones and things balance itself back out and then the telogen phase kicks in and you start to see hair shedding coming out all over the place and remember this is not the same case for everyone some women don't notice as much for some women is very severe but this is perfectly normal so my third tip is that you can help the situation by making sure they are eating right in that you're taking in your vitamin now depending on the best way that works for you some people do great with taking their vitamin if it tastes good so if buying some adult gummy by works for you to make you take your vitamins then go ahead and do that or take regular capsule vitamins to get in the nutrients that you need this is going to help your skin to look a lot better to give you that glow this is going to make your nails grow longer is going to make you more healther as well as help your hair grow back a lot better so this is a normal process Trina after you have your child and I know you didn't notice it as much with your first child in this is an independent scenario it just depends when you have one kid some people have a lot of different reactions crave different foods and things like that so I would love for you all thats watching to share your comments and your things about how was for you after delivering your child and how you got over that hump with your hair and even your body and things like that so Trina thank you for your email I hope this is helped and hope is also up everyone else was watching before any of you go make sure to sign up for your email I hope this has helped and I hope this has also helped everyone else who is watching and before any of you go make sure to sign up for my email list so that way you can be automatically entered for giveaways that do and only there I update you all with exclusive content so until then I'll see you all in my very next video
