Neil George colorist and extension specialist Kacey Welch shared with us a set of before & after photos worth talking about, as she said there are many reasons people come to her for extensions other than just wanting length. One of Kacey’s clients came to her because her hair was feeling a lot finer post-pregnancy.
There are a lot of changes a woman goes through during pregnancy, however, the effects it can have on your hair are much less well-known. Generally speaking, we shed about 100 hairs a day. During pregnancy and hormonal changes at that time, a woman’s body stops shedding hair almost completely. Hair stays in a resting phase, and it will feel fuller and thicker. After pregnancy the body returns to its natural hormonal level, and women can experience hair shedding at a much more rapid rate, exceeding the normal shedding of 100 hairs a day. Hair will tend to feel thinner than normal, and it can even take up to 2 1/2 years for hair to return to its natural fullness and thickness. This post-pregnancy effect is exactly what happened to Kacey’s client.
The difference is incredible! Beyond getting longer length, Kacey said it is always her objective to get a woman’s hair back to its normal, natural state.
