Yep. Totally normal. Some just lose more than others. All that extra hair you had while you were pregnant decides to fall out once your hormones level. I was told to take my prenatal again- Biotin helps.

It just started slowing down a lot! I am 8 months postpartum. Prior to that clumps and fistfuls. I put my hair in pony tails a lot which helped the hair not being all over my clothes all the time. But that also means when you take the pony tail out everything that should have shed that day comes out pretty much all at once and that can be a little scary. Stick it out momma it will get better soon.

A friend of mine went through the same. Biotin made the trick for her. Its effect was just great in 5 month's time!

Thanks! Just wanted to make sure it was normal for a fistful to come out at once

I'm 9 months pp and I'm still losing an extreme amount of hair. I was getting horrible breakage on the front sides of my head. The shampoo I got for it doesn't seem to help. How come no one tells us that hair loss comes with having a baby?!?!? lol

My hair is coming out so bad my family calls me bald-d-locks. It's so bold. Lol. But I'm BF & idk if I can take anything that won't affect my milk.
