Here in this post, I’m going to share with you very easy 5 DIY hair mask recipes that I’ve tried and tested myself during my postpartum journey. These hair masks truly helped me to revive damaged hair, prevent postpartum hair fall in the best manner also maintain hair health.
You know it if you’ve been through or going through it. During the pregnancy, the hair becomes so lush and beautiful and in postpartum the hair takes a U-turn in a completely worst way.
Do keep in mind that there is a normal hair fall cycle, some of our hair fall daily.
Do you wonder why we face so many hair issues during postpartum?
Apart from the normal hair fall ratio, When someone is pregnant the body goes through a major hormonal change which stops even the normal hair loss and suddenly the hair becomes voluminous and lush. At the postpartum the drop of hormones causes the fast hair fall for a couple of months. HAir loses its healthy look and shine. This time if the hair is taken care of properly it is possible to keep a healthy balance and in fact can prevent the excessive hair fall.
5 DIY hair mask recipes below you can apply according to your hair concern. Now here I’ve used a core ingredient, shea butter which can also be altered with other plant-based butter or the butter we eat.
