Postpartum hair loss is a topic that isn’t discussed enough. After spending your pregnancy being told you’re glowing and having people rave about your thick, gorgeous hair, it can come as quite a shock when your hair begins falling out (sometimes in clumps!) after having your baby. That’s where taking collagen powder comes in to save the day.

Some women are caught off guard when hair loss happens to them and worry that there might be something wrong. Rest assured – it’s perfectly normal.
What Causes Postpartum Hair Loss?
When you are pregnant, your hormones cause your hair to grow faster and fall out less. After you have your baby or stop breastfeeding, that process is reversed, and your hormones return to pre-pregnancy levels. When that happens, all the hair you didn’t shed during pregnancy begins falling out. It can be quite dramatic!
If you are experiencing postpartum hair loss, you’re not alone. It’s simply a normal part of your oestrogen levels dropping after pregnancy.
What Can You Do About It?
Postpartum hair loss sometimes makes you feel like there soon won’t be any hair left on your head at all! So, what can you do? Take a collagen supplement. It’s one of the simplest and most effective ways to restore your healthy hair.
Collagen is loaded with amino acids, including proline, which is especially beneficial to your hair. Your hair is mostly constructed of keratin, and keratin is made from proline. And I’ve got great news – this is a component of collagen! This means that when you take a collagen supplement, you’re providing your body with the proline it needs to create new hair growth.
Au Natural Skinfood Hair.Skin.Nails Marine Collagen Powder for Postpartum Hair Loss
Try our Marine Collagen Powder to give your hair the nutrition it needs. It’s also chock-full of Manuka honey, vitamin C, and grapeseed extract. These key ingredients support your gut microbiome and decrease stress and inflammation in your body, which is so important after pregnancy.
What Else Can Collagen Powder Help with?
Although using Collagen Powder works great as a booster for postpartum hair loss, it is also beneficial for your skin, and since the roots of your hair are located within your skin, taking a collagen supplement helps protect the root from damage. This, in turn, reduces hair loss. Collagen Powder is also amazing for strengthening nails!
So don’t despair, mama. Your hair isn’t gone forever. You just need to give it a little TLC.
I was thrilled with the difference collagen powder made for me after I had my fourth baby, and I think you will be, too.
