Today I’m sharing my post partum hair story: all about the steps I took to ultimately get my hair back to normal after giving birth! I hope this can help give some tips and ideas to those of you who may be struggling with the same issues!
Happy Wednesday, friends! Today’s post is all about my tips for getting your hair back to normal after giving birth. I really struggled with my post partum hair being dry, coarse, and knotted constantly – especially after each washing. I scoured the web for tips on how to get it back to normal, even coming across some women in a forum who had said cutting it off and starting from scratch was their only solution. I was determined to not have to do that, as I’ve been growing my hair out long for years now, and that was just not an ideal solution for me. Luckily, I have found several products that have transformed my hair drastically, and today I wanted to share those with you! I’m hopeful that this information may be useful to any other women out there who are post partum and struggling with the same post partum hair issues as I did!
Step one was to replace my regular conditioner with a deep conditioner. And I’ve never looked back 😀 At the recommendation of my hair dresser, I started using the Paul Mitchell Super Charged Moisturizer treatment as my conditioner each time I wash my hair, and this was a game changer. I wash my hair about 2-3 times a week (if I wash it every time I shower, it becomes very dry), and so I started using this product in place of my normal conditioner and it has worked wonders to start hydrating my hair again after the pregnancy.
I’ve written and spoken about this system several times before, and for good reason: it works! These products are a little on the pricier side, but I was desperate and had read a lot of good reviews on them. Luckily the price tag is majorly worth it: adding step 3 (hair perfector, which is a DEEP deep conditioner), step 6 (bond smoother, which helps smooth frizz and repair damage to hair), and step 7 (bonding oil, which helps to strengthen while hydrating the hair) has really improved the strength and texture of my hair overall.
The last step I do now after showering is to throw on an argan oil styling cream into my hair before drying. You can look for any type of argan that you prefer (I also use an argan oil shampoo!). The pomade I use is sold out now (so sad!) but this is a similar product. Argan oil is known for helping to lengthen, strengthen, and thicken locks, and this product doubles as a styling pomade as well!
