Brief Answer: Normal to lose hair during lactation Detailed Answer: Hi, Let me quote some facts before you worry. During pregnancy hair fall is minimal due to hormonal influence or the hair is not lost as regular cycling process. Very few follicles go into telogen phase and drop. This would be soon compensated with heavy hair loss post pregnancy. After delivery the hormonal influence is gone and hence hair fall begins. It is totally normal and you will get back your original hair within next one year. At this point you just remain cool. You can take TAB BIOTIN FORTE, 10mg, once a day. You can take green leaves in the food as dal / curry every day. Add one root vegetable on alternate days. If you still want to consult Dermatologist let me know.
