Many women lose their hair massively after breastfeeding. This period can be stressful when the reason for the loss is unknown. Here is a short explanation to better understand.
During pregnancy, the anagen phase of the hair is boosted by estrogen and progesterone which lasts for the 2nd and 3rd trimester. The hair is then sheathed, more extensive, and in better shape.
However, once childbirth has taken place, the hormones stop working due to the drastic decrease in their quantity. Since it takes about four months for a dead hair to fall out, it is only 2 to 4 months after childbirth that some women (1 in 3) lose their hair abnormally. Experts call this phenomenon “postpartum telogen effluvium.” When a woman is breastfeeding, effluvium may occur later, the hormonal profile being slightly different.
In some cases, the hair cycles do not resynchronize normally and the hair continues to fall out. It is crucial in this case to consult your doctor and make a consultation at the Hair Center: it may be androgenic alopecia or a hormonal disorder responsible for abnormal hair loss.
We advise pregnant women to undergo treatment after childbirth to minimize this fall and thus prevent possible alopecia.
HOW DOES IT WORK TO REPLACE YOUR HAIR WITHOUT SURGERY?
Today, two techniques make it possible to regain hair on bald areas: the first consists of resorting to surgery to remove and redistribute the hair on the surface of the skull. The second revolutionize hair replacement by not being limited to a donor area without any surgical intervention!
The principle of this new solution is just as simple as it is effective: the bald area is replaced by natural hair implanted in an excellent and transparent membrane that fully adheres to contact with the skin. Of course, this implanted hair does not grow but seems to come out directly from the scalp; the result is invisible.
The adhesion of this membrane is achieved with an anti-allergic resin and adapted to the skin’s pH to last several weeks. Showers, swimming and all sports activities become possible. A visit is recommended between 4 and 6 weeks to remove the membrane and cut the existing natural hair.
The time for wigs is over; this system developed by the Center du Cheveu has become the most effective solution in the fight against baldness for a much lower budget than surgery.
Be careful, however, of internet scams! We have already pointed this out in a previous article. Indeed, many companies offer you replacement systems on the internet made mostly with synthetic hair. There will then be the problem of the adhesives used, often very aggressive and reactive, as well as the problem of haircut, which requires real expertise to obtain an optimal result.
Don’t be tempted by the attractive price of an advertisement. Indeed, hair replacement is an expert matter because the quality and resistance of the membrane are paramount. Better not to wear anything than to cover yourself with ridicule.
Here are some valuable tips before you take the plunge:
- Make sure you are dealing with a professional who has many references: photos, video etc
- Request a contact resin allergy test
- Request a test with a test membrane (your hair will not be cut)
- Be vigilant with the facilities of the center that you consult (booths, hygiene, etc.)
- Check the hair quality (natural hair is silky and reacts like your hair)
Hair replacement without surgery is arguably the best solution for advanced androgenic baldness. Its ease of maintenance and the absence of constraints make it the resolution of the future already adopted by thousands of satisfied customers.
