Health Tip: Losing Hair After Pregnancy

Here's what can help

(HealthDay News) -- Hormonal changes cause some new moms to lose hair after pregnancy. But there are things women can do to help their hair look fuller.

The American Academy of Dermatology suggests:

  • Shampooing with a volumizing product.
  • Skipping conditioning shampoos, which add weight to hair.
  • Opting for a lighter conditioner that's designed for fine hair. Apply it only on the ends of the hair and avoid the scalp.
