Temporary Solution to hair-loss

Exactly 6 months after giving birth to my lil one, I experienced hair loss. It must have started off gradually and I thought then that it was "normal" to experience hair loss after childbirth. But I am still having this problem and my son just turned 2!!!!
I used to experience heavy hair loss every single time I washed my hair. They come off in big bunches! Scary! Every single time I brush my hair, sure there will be at least 5-6 strands of hair on my comb, plus another 5-6 strands on the floor. Then when I tie my hair after combing, a few more will drop off. And to untie my hair, a few more will stuck on my hairband. And if I tie & untie my hair say 5 times a day .. I dont even dare do the calculations !!!

My SIL recommended me to use Rene Furterer Hair Tonic from Sasa but Sasa Malaysia does not import them. So I ended up buying A'Kin shampoo & conditioner for sensitive scalp.

I have now used up about half a bottle. I still experience hair dropping while I wash it but far less. When I dry my hair and comb it, there is usually about 2-3 strands of hair on my comb and say 1-2 strands of hair on my hairband. I feel much better now. My hair feels good! It is soft and manageable too probably due to the conditioner.

I paid RM56 for both the shampoo & conditioner after a 31% discount. Normal price is RM40 for each of them. I will continue using it see if can help me solve my hair-loss problem.

If you guys have any sure-works solutions for hair-loss, please do share it with me please ... please ... please.

I have exactly the same problem after delivered Sethy.. It was really a nightmare!!! Nothing much I could do, except cutting it real short(less burden for the scalp).. I was forced to have my first boy cut in my life :P

for me Wella SP (salon professional) hair tonic works wonders. you can get it from most quality salons, i think. i looked for it in shops specialising in hair products but couldnt find em. so i buy them from my hairdresser. i also tried a Mustika Ratu shampoo (it was a fluke! i was at ttdi market and the woman approached me and said it was suitable for hair-loss!).. i think it was Shampoo Bayam (gross eh?) but it worked. now my hair's stopped falling so much so i dont use all these products. but who knows, one day i might need em again!

My hubby also complaint that my hair dropping is scary... even till today.. Darrius is almost 4 lioa.. so imagine how many hair lost... :P

I am using Dove hair Falls Therapy but not much improvement though... maybe I'm lack of sleep...

The painful hair loss is the one of the most fearly part of the pregnancy journey to me. I looked so terribly bald then :(
