One thing that I vividly remember from pregnancy, and the weeks and months following my baby’s birth was the state of my hair. Through pregnancy there were times when my hair felt amazing, so full of volume and so thick – but it would soon turn into a greasy mess, untameable and with a life of it’s own. After having the baby my hair seemed to come out in clumps, with the plug hole blocked after every shower and my hair noticeably thinner than before.
I had friends who spoke about hair loss and thinning hair through pregnancy too, patches of almost baldness after their babies arrived and the one thing we all had in common was how unexpected it was – how no-one had told us anything to prepare us for the sorry state our hair had become.
I remember writing about postpartum hair loss and wondering whether it would ever stop – would my hair eventually stay in my head or would it keep falling our in an endless stream? Back then I didn’t know what to do, took to washing my hair less frequently in the hope it would ease the hair loss and just hoped that my hair would go back to normal – but it never happened. In the end I cut my hair as short as I dared which made the hair loss less noticeable.
I’ve just heard about Hairburst’s new For New Mums supplement and I really wish it had been around when I had Little Man and LP. For New Mums contains safe levels of biotin which is effective for normal hair growth pre, during and post pregnancy and Hairburst For New Mums contains a range of B vitamins which can combat tiredness and fatigue when your new baby is keeping you up at night. I could have definitely used For New Mums during and after both of my pregnancies.
Hairburst believe the key to gorgeous hair starts from within and For New Mums is scientifically formulated and includes nutrients which can help maintain healthy hair and a mix of proven ingredients for hair growth.
At the time when your whole body has been put under strain, growing and carrying a baby for months, and then, when the baby is here, and you are exhausted, run down and in need of a pick me up – Hairburst have the answer. For New Mums won’t fix everything but it can make you feel a bit better about yourself at a time when you really need it.
I know that if For New Mums had been around after I had LP and Little Man I would definitely have tried it. Anything that could make my hair grow and stop me feeling like baldness was around the corner has got to be a good thing and I’m sure that it would help to give new mums a confidence boost when they need it most.
