Best Vitamins For Postpartum Hair Loss

Giving birth and everything after that puts a strain on your body – it takes a lot of nutrients to keep you and your baby healthy for the first few months and beyond. While you may be too busy rushing, adjusting (or just not putting your newborn down in general) to eat every meal, a vitamin is a good crutch. Not only are vitamins essential for general wellness, but they are also your first line of defense against postpartum hair loss.

My hair started losing around three to four months. Fortunately, it lasted for about six months. I think it’s partly because of the vitamins. Here are some of the best vitamins and supplements for postpartum hair loss out there to prevent or stop thinning after a baby. As always, consult your doctor and/or pediatrician before starting any new vitamins, especially if you are breastfeeding. Whatever you ingest will also end up in the baby’s body.
