    Post partum hair loss is quite common and can last up to 6 months after baby is born. This is because when you're pregnant your hormones keep your hair thick and prevent it falling out as much as usual. After baby, this stops and your hair goes back to what it was before.

    How long ago did you have your baby?

    DHT might have spiked after having your baby.
    I would keep to natural oils for now, argan, olive. Stay away from laurel sulphate in your shampoos.

    what is DHT?
    https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=DH..._sm=0&ie=UTF-8

    I guess they mean dihydrotestosterone
