Postpartum Depression & Hair Loss
Are you a new mom? Facing Postpartum Depression is more common than you think and so is postpartum hair loss.
New mom’s are so busy adjusting to new baby life, that sometimes we can forget to take care of ourselves. It’s hard to find the time for yourself, and when you do, the last thing you may want to do is deal with even brushing your own hair. New moms may also find that no matter how gorgeous their hair was before baby, it’s never the same afterwards. Hormones, stress, lack of sleep, and maybe just getting older can cause you to lose hair. Cashmere Hair owner Melissa Koren is a new mom of a 6 month old baby girl and she has faced some difficult Postpartum Depression along with her own hair loss issues. Cashmere Hair is not just for celebrities and models, it’s for real women. Cashmere Hair clip-in extensions help women with everything from insecurities to diseases, cancer, stress and even PPD. Here’s her story:
“Becoming a first time mom is the hardest challenge & most rewarding challenge I ever had to face. There are a lot of things to prepare for & a lot things you will never know how to prepare for. I gave birth to my beautiful baby named Elly on 11-11-15. This day changed my life from here forward. Elly was born 2 1/2 weeks early which resulted with some small health issues. Throughout this tough journey of finding comfort for Elly I still faced a hardship myself with Postpartum Depression. The delivery alone was enough to push me into a dark hole. Let’s just say things didn’t go so smoothly.
From there I struggled with breastfeeding for 3 continuous weeks. It was very hard to accept the fact that I was not going to be breast feeding my baby. These are just a few examples of what contributed to my depression & anxiety. It’s already tough being a new mom & adjusting to your new lifestyle let alone all of your hormone changes.
I battled Postpartum Depression & PPA for 5 long months. During this time I wasn’t taking care of myself like I should have been. My weight dropped tremendously & I was always stressed out. A lot of things can result from stress as we know. Most importantly, I changed my bad health issues by recovering at a daily hospital that catered to women with postnatal.
