I’m 24 weeks pregnant…Do I have to wait until after the birth of the baby for treatment?

Pregnancy The Belgravia CentreName: Cloda

Question: I’m 24 weeks pregnant and have lost all the hair from the crown of my head – at the parting and have a few other smaller bald patches/diffused hair. I have never suffered from alopecia before. This is my second pregnancy and I didn’t loss any hair during my first. Do I have to wait until after the birth of the baby for treatment?

Answer: Yes, you will need to wait until you have finished breastfeeding your child before beginning a hair loss treatment programme. I realise that this won’t be the answer you wanted to hear, but hair loss products including the nutritional supplement Hair Vitalics are not suitable for use during pregnancy and lactation. An examination by a hair loss specialist would be required to establish the cause, or causes, of your hair loss.

Once breastfeeding has ended, women can use minoxidil, which is a hair loss treatment that has been licensed by the MHRA and approved by the FDA to treat hair loss in women. If your hair loss is proving particularly stubborn, Belgravia produce a unique extra-strength minoxidil cream, which has proven particularly successful for alopecia.
