hair can change during pregnancy - for the better, but unfortunately also for the bad. Read what BabyCenter mothers have experienced for ""hair horror stories"".
Bald Spots and Strange Regrowth""My hair started falling out when I was pregnant. It took us 20 minutes to empty our bathtub, so I looked in the drain and there was a big ball of slimy hair blocking everything! ""
"" I have relatively thick hair, so I did not realize they were getting fatter when I was pregnant. But since I got my son, they are falling out - even if I wash them! ""
"" As soon as I gave birth to my child, my hair began to multiply. Even on the front of my forehead! It looked like I had an incredibly short forehead. My hairdresser asked me if I could cut it myself … ""
"" During pregnancy my hair was all right and right after it - but not anymore. My little one is 11 months old and I have bald spots on my head. One is right at the top and I hate it! ""
Greasy Hair"" I was waiting to bloom, instead I looked like a pimply adolescent with greasy hair! ""
"" While I was pregnant I had a big greasy spot on my head that just did not want to go away, not even after washing. I washed my hair carefully and still looked like I had put my head in a fryer. ""
"" Since I've had my child, I can not use a cure anymore because my hair is then greasy again. I think it's hormones from breastfeeding. ""
"" I got dandruff, I've never had that before. I hated it! ""
Dry Little Curls"" I had problems with my hair. Imagine having thick hair and it just gets fatter and thicker! It was very dry and looked terrible. ""
"" When my hair color changed a bit, my mother charmingly said that it would remind her of a patchwork quilt! Luckily I managed to get it back through a few intensive treatments. ""
"" My hair became dry and brittle. It looked like a bird's nest. ""
Missing Hairstyles"" When I was in my 23rd week, I had my long hair cut off. I thought short hair would be more practical with a little kid - just wash and go! ""
"" What a mistake. I hated it immediately.At the end of my pregnancy, when my ankles swelled up and my face suddenly too, I was so mad. At least my hair should have been something that I could control. I felt like a boy! ""
"" During my pregnancy, the hair above my ear started curling. After the birth, I cut it off, hoping it would calm it down. But that only made it worse and I only had curls! I will buy a straightener now! ""
"" When my daughter was born, I had a bob and my hair fell back on my face over and over again when I leaned forward to feed her. So I let it cut very short. It was good that it did not bother me feeding anymore, but it looked awful. I have very much regretted it. ""
"" My hair grew so fast during my last pregnancy that I cut her short. But I hated it! The short things to grow again long, did not look great! ""
"" I usually have long hair, but during my pregnancy they became very thick and had kinks and knots, so I was sick and had them cut off. And then I woke up the next morning and felt naked and unprotected! ""
Hair Care Tips"" During my pregnancy, my hair was fine. But now I have the problem that I have no time for my hair with an active toddler. My advice to pregnant women is therefore to use the time instead of getting upset about the hair. You will not have time or energy as soon as your child becomes mobile! ""
"" You need a simple and easy-to-use haircut once your baby is there. I had long hair and no time to really take care of her. My daughter has also often pulled at them. In the end, I let them cut me off, and although I was a little sad, it's much easier to deal with now. ""
