During pregnancy, the hair grows, grows… and doesn’t fall off! Know what is behind this effect, which leaves the hair more voluminous and beautiful
Hair Care – Shiny, beautiful and voluminous hair is no advantage to those who have just left the salon. It is a kind of natural privilege for many pregnant women. The explanation is in the female hormones. During pregnancy, estrogen and progesterone increase in blood circulation and affect the hair follicles, causing a real revolution in hair behavior. The oiliness and the fall are diminished, since they are associated with the male hormones and these, in turn, suffer a reduction. Therefore, in this period, women tend to have healthier and more beautiful hair.
The cycle of hair development is also affected throughout pregnancy. The hairs stay most of the time in the growth phase, called anagen. This means that they grow, grow and do not detach from the scalp. Hence the bulky aspect – only it has the days counted after delivery.
