Postnatal Hair Loss: Best Shampoos and Hair Products to Manage Hair Fall After Giving Birth

Losing hair after your pregnancy? These postnatal shampoos and hair care products will help you fight post-pregnancy hair loss


Is post-pregnancy hair fall bringing you down? Between managing the stress of a newborn, sleepless nights, and recovering from giving birth, you shouldn’t have to worry about hair loss too! 

Unfortunately, hair loss after pregnancy is very real and can affect most women. The good news is that this temporary loss is your body’s way of going back to how it was, pre-pregnancy. And, the more care you take of your hair and scalp at this stage, the higher the chances you’ll have luscious re-growth once the cycle is over.

Today, we take a look at some of the best shampoos and hair care products in Singapore that can help with postnatal hair loss - these products are specifically designed to counter hair fall and provide necessary nutrition to your scalp and hair*.

Grow Gorgeous Daily Growth Serum

For a visibly thicker, fuller, and denser-looking mane to combat postnatal hair loss, using a serum that promotes hair growth can be useful.

In just a few weeks after using, the concentrated Grow Gorgeous Hair Growth Serum promises to amp up the volume of thin, flat, and limp tresses with a cocktail of intelligent haircare ingredients.

An energizing blend of Caffeine, organic Pea Sprout extract, and Chinese Skullcap work in synergy to stimulate the scalp and ‘wake up’ the roots, while Hyaluronic Acid moisturizes and smoothens hair’s fibers for a silky-soft finish. With continued use, you should notice visibly thicker, fuller, and more voluminous tresses.

This hair serum is free from all nasties including parabens, sulphates, silicones, phthalates, and mineral oil. It is also vegan and gluten-free.

Nanogen Women 7 in 1 Thickening Treatment Shampoo

Say goodbye to postnatal hair loss with Nanogen’s hair thickening shampoo which aims to give your hair more volume. The shampoo gently cleanses your hair while creating an instant thickening effect from the very first wash. Formulated with aloe and chamomile, this soothing shampoo will also help reduce scalp irritation compared with harsh shampoos.

Enriched with Glycerin and Panthenol, the formula drenches hair in vital hydration without weighting tresses down, whilst the brand’s patented Hair Growth Factor complex works to rejuvenate hair follicles to promote healthy growth and maintain hair anchoring. Resilience-boosting thanks to Keratin, the 7-in-1 treatment unleashes the potent antioxidant powers of Green Tea extract to defend against harmful external stressors that cause damage.

Finally, prebiotic Beta Glucan deeply nourishes and rebalances the scalp’s natural microbiome, whilst Salicylic Acid performs a gentle chemical exfoliation to ward off itchiness and flakiness caused by pore-clogging sebum and product build-up. Your hair will be left instantly revitalised with a silky-soft and smooth texture and visibly boosted shine and overall health.

Of course, the shampoo is free from parabens and SLS/SLES, as well as being cruelty-free.

With its gel texture, this shampoo can help with postnatal hair loss by repairing and strengthening dry, brittle and damaged hair. From root to tip, the hair fibre seems strengthened. This shampoo also prevents split-ends.

The cocktail of 5 essential oils (ylang-ylang, sweet orange, lavender, geranium, and angelica) promises a pleasant sensory experience, while the exquisite scent awakens the senses.

The Provitamin B5 is known for its repairing properties, and it preserves the natural moisture of the skin and hair.

Artnaturals, Argan Oil & Vitamin E Shampoo

A shampoo to stimulate the scalp and regenerate hair as a solution for postnatal hair loss? A major cause of hair loss is the body’s production of “dihydrotestosterone,” or DHT. This causes hair loss by cutting off the blood supply to hair follicles. ArtNaturals Shampoo and Conditioner Hair Growth Therapy contains multiple DHT blockers, proteins, botanical oils and extracts to stimulate the scalp and prevent hair loss.

Infused with regenerative Argan Oil, Aloe Vera, White Willow Bark, Burdock Root, Rosemary, and Thyme, this shampoo moisturises and soothes hair for increased volume, texture and shine. Artnaturals’ Argan Oil Shampoo Hair Therapy is a natural, safe alternative to expensive hair replacement procedures.

This shampoo is non-GMO, hypoallergenic, sulfate-free and paraben-free providing the safest and most natural therapeutic hair growth shampoo set on the market.
