Welcome to Healthcaremagic.

The thinning of the hair most of times in mainly due to lack of nutrition to the hairs.

Do apply MINOXIDIL 5% solution to the scalp this will improve the circulation and maintain the health of the hairs.

Also do consume foods rich in kertin and Zinc.

Wish you good health.

physiological changes are very common after birth, don't worry about it too much, the itching and dryness in your scalp can be counteracted by application of oil, this happens because your scalp needs nourishing (all your nutrients do get depleted during pregnancy). use mustard oil, though this is very sticky in nature, its heating effects will help with the itching and also its good for hair thickness and growth. Coconut oil on the other side will also help, but may cause sniffing if you are in a cold environment as it is cooling in nature, you can slightly heat coconut oil and dab it on the scalp with cotton to subside the itching. A mixture of Castor:Almond and Olive is excellent for growth in equal proportions.
