Postpartum Hair

From the title of this post you can probably guess what I’m about to talk about – that’s right, postpartum hair.

When I was pregnant with Calla, I was one of the lucky ones who glowed. It wasn’t the entire time, more like just at the very end, but it happened…and it was magical. I had never seen my skin so clear and springy, my nails so strong and perfect, and my hair so lush and and tame. But looking back, if I had the choice, I think I would choose no glow over glow. Why you ask? Because having the glow is AWESOME but losing it SUUUUCKS.

Postpartum is rough. You’re exhausted, eating whatever you can, and it shows! Then…you lose the glow…and when that happened I felt like I had aged 10 years! 😰 I look in the mirror and think, “exactly how much night time serum is gonna fix this?” In order for this post not to be a million words long I simply want to address the loss of hair glow because I have found a solution that has helped get some of it back.

Meet Keranique – The Complete Hair Regrowth System. This 4 piece system is designed to do so much for your hair:

  • Regrow hair and rejuvenate the scalp
  • Repairs, thickens, and shields hair shaft
  • Clinically proven to seal 96% of split ends

96% of split ends people!! It marries both the science of clinically proven hair regrowth treatment with true premium hair care for thicker, fuller, beautiful hair!

The 4 piece system includes:

  • Scalp Stimulating Shampoo Deep Hydration
  • Volumizing Keratin Conditioner Deep Hydration
  • Regrowth Treatment
  • Lift & Repair Treatment Spray

The key product is the Regrowth Treatment with 2% Minoxidil – the only FDA approved topical solution for women’s hair regrowth.

When I say that my hair started to lose it’s glow during postpartum I mean a few things. My hair has gone through a couple phases of falling out. I’m 15 months postpartum and I’m noticing another phase starting again. During these phases so much hair comes out during the shower, I find strands of my hair everywhere, I wonder how I have any hair left! Not only is it falling out but what’s left seems to be prone to breakage. For both of these reasons I enjoy the specially formulated shampoo and conditioner from this Keranique system!

The Scalp Stimulating Shampoo Deep Hydration is sulfate-free and gently cleanses and protects fine, thin hair while also nourishing the scalp. The Volumizing Keratin Conditioner Deep Hydration detangles (hallelujah), conditions, and delivers body while reducing breakage and restoring shine.

Step 2 is using the Regrowth Treatment. Since I have only been using the 4-piece system for 30 days I can’t say that I’ve noticed a drastic increase in hair growth. The system does state that during the 1st week of use you can expect fuller-looking, more manageable hair. During months 1-4 you can expect stronger hair and less breakage. But by 4+ months you can expect hair regrowth results! Being postpartum, I definitely notice “baby hairs” growing in which make for an oh-so-attractive look. And Keranique does share real stories of their hairgrowth system working!

Step 3 is the Lift & Repair Treatment Spray. I use this on my damp hair working it from the roots to the ends. This spray strengthens the hair fiber and in ONE application it mends and seals split ends. My favorite part is that it adds lift to my hair and reduces frizz for up to 24 hours. As the queen of frizz that piece is golden!

As this is an honest review I do want to include a side effect I experienced. The first week I used the 4-piece system my scalp was mildly itchy. After a few uses my scalp seemed to get used to the formulas and there was no more itching. I will add that I do have relatively sensitive skin.

I speak to postpartum hair because that is the state I am in. You may not be postpartum but are in a similar boat with loss of hair glow. I am excited to think how much my hair could continue to improve using this system and I hope you’re excited too!
