Probably not but it sounds VERY appealing right now. My hair is everywhere. It's the attack of the hair. Conquering every rhelm in the home. In the shower, in our food, in pots and pans, in the sink, on the floor. Ah!! :

When did your hair finally start to calm down and stop falling out all over the place? Is there a light at the end of the tunnel? Or must I endure this until I get pregnant again?

I am not sure when mine officially started....but I remember it happening and really freaking out (I didn't know if it was normal or not) but I remember going to a friends house when my DD was about 6 months old and warning them that I was shedding....it would drive anyone crazy, but it will stop (eventually).

I don't remember when it stopped but it doesn't last too terribly long.

It took about 6 months for me to stop shedding like crazy. I seriously thought that I was going to to bald, but I never did. It will stop eventually.

I think my big hair dump was around 3-4 mos PP? Pretty sure I was done by 5-6 mos.

Mine fell out in small clumps between 6 & 8 months pp. Then it calmed down. Some serious b-complex supplements helped, as did thyroid-supportive herbs & such.

Don't worry, you won't go bald!
