FIGHTING SUDDEN HAIR LOSS AFTER CHILDBIRTH

"Since I gave birth, my hair has been falling out in clumps. What can I do?"

WHAT ARE THE SIGNS OF SUDDEN HAIR LOSS DUE TO CHILDBIRTH?

You lose over 100 hairs a day:
You have alopecia, the scientific name for hair loss.
The average person loses between 40 and 80 hairs per day.

Your hair starts falling out in clumps suddenly and without warning:
The hair loss is diffuse and concerns the entire head, rather than just an isolated area.

You noticed your hair falling out after giving birth:
Healthy, thick and shiny during pregnancy, your hair lost its strength after childbirth and is falling out at an alarming rate.

WHY DOES IT HAPPEN?

Hormonal imbalance

During pregnancy, estrogen increases drastically (x1000) throughout the whole body. Hair becomes shinier, softer, thicker, and the scalp is drier. About three months after giving birth, estrogen levels plummet. This sudden decrease in hormones causes a massive and simultaneous loss of hair.

Extreme fatigue and stress

The fatigue and stress associated with caring for a newborn baby also disrupts the body's natural rhythms. Hair becomes dull, thin and falls out in clumps for about a month, sometimes longer.
With this type of hair loss, which is classified as "sudden," the growth phase transitions into the shedding phase too quickly.

THE CAUSES OF SUDDEN HAIR LOSS AFTER CHILDBIRTH When it comes to hair health and beauty, understanding the underlying cause is necessary to choosing the most effective treatment.

THE TWO CAUSES OF SUDDEN HAIR LOSS

VASCULAR CAUSE: poor blood flow to the hair bulb means the hair does not get the essential elements it needs to grow.

NUTRITIONAL CAUSE: a deficiency in the nutrients essential to hair growth.

IS IT POSSIBLE TO SLOW DOWN THIS HAIR LOSS?

In order to slow down sudden hair loss, you need to treat these two causes. Each can be responsible for gradual hair loss, alone or in combination with the other.

However, it is almost impossible to know the exact combination of causes, so the best solution is to treat both.

Stop hair loss and encourage hair growth

RF80 Concentrated serum for hair loss boosts hair growth and visibly slows down shedding. It targets the two factors responsible for sudden hair loss, giving visible results after just one month. The hair quickly regains strength, vitality, and thickness.

TWO MODES OF ACTION FOR FIGHTING SUDDEN HAIR LOSS (due to stress, diet, fatigue...)

Microcirculation is stimulated through the combined action of natural Pfaffia extract*, Lemon and Sage essential oils, Arginine, and Vitamin B3. The Pfaffia increases the number of blood capillaries, whereas the Lemon and Sage essential oils increase blood flow.

NUTRITIONAL ACTION: a two-pronged approach
1. Induction of the growth phase: ATP, an exclusive hair loss innovation, provides an essential source of energy for the hair follicle. It sends an early energy signal, activating hair growth.**

2. Strengthening of the hair: once growth has been activated, it is essential to encourage the development of beautiful hair by with essential nutrients like Methionine, which is needed for keratin production, Vitamin B5, and Biotine. In addition, the combined action of Plant peptidesZinc, and Copper fortify and nourish the hair bulb for even stronger growth.

RESULT: Hair loss is reduced and growth is stimulated. The hair quickly regains its natural strength and thickness.

YOUR QUESTIONS ABOUT SUDDEN HAIR LOSS

To help with your day-to-day problems, we put our scientific expertise at your disposal.

PREVENTION

Is it possible to prevent this hair loss and take a treatment before or during pregnancy?

No, it will not help, and we strongly advise against taking any preventive treatment because this type of hair loss is completely normal. It is a natural consequence of childbirth. In addition, you should avoid any treatment during pregnancy in order to keep your baby healthy and safe.

DAILY TIPS

How can I hide my hair loss while waiting for it to grow back?

Many women find it very hard to cope with losing their hair because it symbolizes a loss of their femininity. While waiting for it to grow back, opt for a shorter haircut, as this always makes the sparser areas seem less obvious. In addition, an above-the-shoulder cut gives an impression of volume, which helps hide the hair loss even more. If you have any questions, speak to a hairdresser who will be able to help.

CONCERNS/PRECONCEIVED NOTIONS

Several months after giving birth, I am still losing hair in clumps. Is this normal?

Postpartum hair loss usually begins around 3 months after giving birth, but this varies among women. However, if it happens much later, you could be suffering from gradual hair loss. Ask your doctor to find out the exact causes of your hair loss.

I'm pregnant and my hair is falling out. Is this normal?

For most women, hair becomes more beautiful and stronger during pregnancy. However, this is not true in every case and each person is different.

Pregnant women are still human and thus suffer from stress, fatigue etc., all of which are possible causes of hair loss.

Someone told me that massaging the scalp is good for preventing hair loss, is that true?

Yes, that is absolutely correct. Massaging the scalp activates the local microcirculation and helps supply the nutrients needed for strong hair growth.

Does brushing make hair loss worse?

Not at all. Brushing helps remove hair that has already died, and any dust and dirt. However, it does not aggravate hair loss; on the contrary, it is beneficial for the scalp because it aerates and volumizes the hair.

EFFECTS OF LIFESTYLE

Can breastfeeding delay hair loss?

Breastfeeding produces a hormone called prolactin, and this can indeed delay the problems of sudden hair loss. 

Can I use René Furterer products during pregnancy and while breastfeeding?

No, because they contain essential oils which are risky for the baby.

When will I start to see the results?

RF 80 gives proven, visible results from the first month of treatment.*
The first signs are a significant reduction in hair loss after shampooing, brushing, or on the towel or clothes, as well as a significant increase in the volume and thickness of the hair from the very first month.
84% of subjects questioned noticed the effects of this hair loss program after just one month of treatment.*
However, you should complete the full course of treatment (3 months) in order to ensure the best possible results.
