Postpartum Hair Loss: The Worst Things You Can Put in Your Hair

Intro to Postpartum Hair Loss

Postpartum hair loss can be very stressful and worrisome for many women. It’s normal to have increased shedding after giving birth, and shortly after to have increased thickness. The timing is largely determined by your hormone levels. During this time period, doing all the right things for your follicles is most important, to be sure that the follicles are properly nourished to avoid death of those follicles. You need to be sure that you are not using some of the worst ingredients on your hair.

Postpartum Hair Loss: The Worst Things to Put in Your Hair

Silicone is an important ingredient that needs to be avoided. You commonly find silicone in sealants, adhesives, lubricants, medicine, cooking utensils, and thermal and electrical insulation. Sadly, it is also found in personal care products because it makes a great spreading agent and glossing agent, to hide how really dull and damaged your hair is, for really cheap.

Silicone is made from sand, therefore, it is marketed as natural and organic. Over the years, chemists have figured out how to make the molecules smaller and smaller, until they are so small that they lodge into your hair follicles, smothering them. The last thing you want at this point is to smother your hair follicles that have survived the battle with chemo.

To name a few versions of silicone: Dimethicone, Phenyl Trimethicone, Amodimethicone, Dimethicone Copolyol, Cyclomethicone, Cyclopentasiloxane, and the list goes on. For a more in-depth look, check out our Silicone Derivatives Avoid List. Silicone and its derivatives, like a liquid glass or plasticized oil covering seal the scalp and stop the ability to absorb nourishment transdermally. Silicone derivatives are cheap fillers that made it under the radar as being safe.

Another ingredient to avoid is plastic. Plastics, like Polyvinylpolypyrrolidone a.k.a PVP, Polyvinyl, polydimethylsiloxane, Octylacrylaminde/Acrylates/Butylaminoethyl Methacrylate Copolymer, PEG, Cyclohexamine, Cyclohexylamine, Polyquaternium-69 Acrylates/Steareth-20 Methacrylicacid, Methacrylate, Methyl Methacrylate, Crosspolymer, Aminomethyl Propanol, Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate, and even Talc.

Many use gel, mousse, glaze and sprays in their hair to add “body” and manageability to their hair. Unfortunately, all those items usually contain plastic to give the feeling of “body” and stiffness to your hair. The more you use these products the more thinning that can occur. These ingredients smother your hair follicles, which is what the big manufacturers want.


Because you will have even thinner hair and need a better, stiffer product to add “body” and manageability to your hair, and they will be able to sell more gels AND a new category of hair growth imposter products.


After bringing in a beautiful new life into the world, dealing with hair loss seems like a small price to pay, even though it can be extremely frustrating at times.

It’s important to have the proper education as to what you need to do to ensure you have long-term hair growth, or you could end up with weak, thinning hair. Trusting conventional and high-end brands is practically a guarantee to have thinner hair.

As you probably already know, postpartum hair loss happens when your hormones begin resetting themselves, typically related to the end of breastfeeding. Given this alarming time of sometimes horrific hair loss, you want to be sure you are doing all the right things to nourish and reactivate those fallen hair follicles. It’s a critical time that many miss, and live their mommy-hood with hair that’s never quite the same. More about that 68 day period that may set the stage for great hair or not.

You must use products that are gentle, nourishing, and chemical-free. Belegenza Natural Hair Care understands all of this and has created a package of hair care products that take all the guesswork of which products are best for your hair follicles and set you up to restore hair volume and quality. Check out the Postpartum Hair Loss & Regrowth package.

The 68 days after hormonal reset typically related to the end of breast-feeding, begs for nutrition and perfect circumstances. Be sure you print a FREE copy of the Silicone Derivatives AVOID list and also the “12 Everyday Things Slowing Hair Growth: Hair Thinning Reversed.”

Fine hair? Tinted? Indescribable damage?  If you have found yourself on the “TRY ANYTHING” wheel, it may be that silicone and synthetic products just can’t quite cover up the damage that has accumulated coupled with hormonal influences on the hair’s natural processes.   As Belegenza begins to purify your hair from these slick cover-ups, the true damage may be revealed and for the first few applications, your hair may tangle, feel dry or more brittle.  This is temporary, as the micro-conditioning agents make their way INTO the damage sites.  Keep going.  It’s temporary, and you’ll be glad you did! Not only that, we’re here to assist you through the process.  You can always start the conversation with “Alan-bot” who should have already popped up to help! If not, feel free to contact us at .

Success Stories

Thank you Belegenza– I’ve been using the grow out spray, volumizing conditioner and grow out shampoo for around 4 years. I found your company by pure luck and it has changed my hair & the way I’m able to style it + it’s healthy thanks to the awesome ingredients that are in each bottle. I have 5 kids and used the grow out spray through each pregnancy except my first. I’ve had no hair loss each time I used it and my hair continued to grow unlike the time I didn’t use it. Extremely happy!!!!! Thank you!

I discovered your product by researching hair products for salt-&-pepper very dry hair. After reading the rave reviews, I concluded they must be fabricated because they were so glowing. But, being desperate to find an effective product, I took a chance and ordered the travel size of the Illustrious 1 shampoo and Romance 2 conditioner. After only a couple of uses, my hair was transformed from it’s dull, dry, straw-like texture to it’s former bounce and shine. Truly amazing. I loved it so much I ordered the full sizes and added the SpotLite Shine. LOVED those so much, my next order was for the professional sizes plus the Virginity leave-in conditioner. At the risk of sounding like those other reviews that I thought were fake, I absolutely LOVE these products. Please consider this a thank you note for rescuing my hai
