Hair and Nails

Why are my hair and nails growing so fast

Pregnancy causes an increase in your metabolic rate, which in turn nourishes your skin cells, making your hair and nails grow faster. In fact hair could also start appearing on the arms, legs, back, belly and face. Most of the hair disappears within 6 months after delivery. So relax.

I have been told I will lose a lot of hair after childbirth

It is true that you will lose a considerable amount of hair after delivery.  But experts differ on the reasons for this hair loss.  Some argue that you are losing the hair that you normally would have shed in the 9 months of pregnancy, but did not.  Others say childbirth causes a widespread conversion of hair follicles from the growing state to the resting state.  Hair growth and shedding is known to come back to the normal state after about three months of childbirth.
