Do I need to take vitamins for my hair while pregnant?
ANGIE SAYS: Yes, but just your prenatals. While taking your prenatal vitamins, you’ll be amazed at how much your hair changes during pregnancy. It becomes thicker, fuller and oh, so beautiful. Not only do you get the “mommy” glow, but your hair gets it too. During pregnancy, your strands are actually getting thicker—and you’re losing it much slower than normal. Higher levels of estrogen prolong the hair growth phase, resulting in less shedding and thicker tresses. Plus, your hair actually becomes shinier! Enjoy your beautiful, healthy-looking hair now because after pregnancy, your locs won’t be as luxurious. Post-partum hair goes through a shedding phase, so continue to take your prenatals even after giving birth to help with that minimal hair loss.

Let’s get back to the basics of natural beauty.
