A MUM has opened up about her battle with postpartum hair loss and how a 99p product for children saved her locks.
Taking to Facebook, the mum shared her story in the hopes it might help other women suffering with the same plight.
Writing on the group Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK, the mum shared a picture of her long, healthy locks and explained how Schwarzkopf ‘s Super Soft Kids detangling spray.
She said: “I’ve been suffering with postpartum hair loss for a few months, pair that with long, fine hair and it would literally take me 30 minutes to brush my hair after washing it.
“I picked this spray up in Home Bargains for 99p and it’s changed my life!
“Smells nice and sweet, literally just spray onto washed hair, leave a minute or so and brush through.
“Life changed for 99p! I’ll definitely be stocking up on this when I can.”
Postpartum is an entirely normal part of pregnancy for many women and it’s nothing to worry about – although like this new mum, many people find losing hair a nuisance.
Most women’s hair growth patterns will go back to normal around six to 12 months after the birth.
Other mums thanked the woman for recommending the super cheap solution and vowed to give it a go themselves.
“Thank you for this comment,” one wrote. “I had my son nearly 14 months ago now and i am still loosing my hair. its literally half the thickness it used to be.”
