Pregnancy Hair Loss / Hair Thinning / Balding
Fortunately, because pregnancy induced baldness and hair loss is due to the hormonal imbalance during pregnancy, the hair loss is really only very temporary.
Growing hairs comprise certain structures: Hair follicles are the root of the hair; this is the flexible structure of epithelial origin.
The hair structure extending out of the surface of the skin, subcutaneous tissue, is know as the shaft.
Although the hair root is a living structure, the shaft is made of dead cells.
In pregnancy, it is the dead cells that are not being replaced in the hair, the shafts break off perhaps easier too, but the follicles are still very much alive and well, so when the pregnancy hormones subside, return to normal, the follicles again start reproducing the hair.
Pregnancy induced baldish patches and thinning are then filled with new hair regrowth.
Dealing with the embarrassment of baldness, alopecia and hair loss caused by pregnancy
Some hair facts a pregnant woman may be interested in
Hair has major and minor pigments, that is planted in the chains of protein, in the hair fibers.
Melanin is one of the major types of pigment, this is a polymeric pigment that is colored brown-black, and is also accountable for the skins coloration.
The other pigment, phaeomelanin, is coming from a red pigment that is containing iron, hence red hair.
While in pregnancy, our hair is often at its best, or even better, as the presence of oestrogen produces an environment conducive to hair growth, and your hair may even have a more glossy appearance. If this extra growth should happen to you, then anticipate that you may suffer from post partum hair loss, aka post natal hair loss.
