I struggled with postpartum hair loss for years. I lost a lot of hair after my fourth baby, and I tried everything to get my hair to grow back. It was really hard, and I never thought it would happen for me. I used to wear tape-in hair extensions because I didn’t think I’d ever be able to get it to grow back. No matter what I tried, I couldn’t get these front sections to grow. I thought for sure after babies I wouldn’t get my hair growth back, but now I know it’s attainable. This definitely wasn’t a short process, but I finally did it. If you follow a routine consistently and give it time, you can experience amazing growth and get your healthy hair back.
Here are the top products I have used and reordered in 2023 to help with my hair growth:
It is so nice to have long, healthy, thick hair again. All it takes is some dedication and the right products.
• All of these products have helped me maintain healthy hair, but liquid collagen is the key to actually making the hair grow. I’ve been taking two tablespoons each day, and I really think this is the number one thing that has impacted my hair growth the most, especially the front sections. If you want to learn more, I wrote an entire post about how it works, along with answers to frequently asked questions here.
Maintaining the quality of your hair is just as important, and these are my tried and true products to do just that:
• On hair washing day, I spray the front section of my hair with water and put Olaplex 3 in and let it sit all day in a high bun (or at least try and let it sit for 20 minutes before I jump in the shower).
• While in the shower, I comb through my hair with a wide tooth comb. This helps prevent any additional damage or breaking when combing out my hair.
• Anytime I use any heat protectant after that, I use the this protectant spray. Every morning I add a little elixir to my ends to keep them hydrated.
