You may have always wondered what you would look like with a set of bangs, but you likely didn’t expect them to come in the form of short, hard-to-handle, pieces of hair at the front of your hairline. According to PureWow, this is what is referred to as postpartum bangs and can be a nuisance for many women hoping to get back to their former selves after having a baby. But before you start to panic when these baby bangs appear, remember they are actually a good thing. Dr. Jenny Liu, a board-certified dermatologist in Minnesota, told PureWow that postpartum bangs are actually a sign that your hair is beginning to grow back and they aren’t permanent — most women will only experience these bangs for about nine months.
If you are dealing with postpartum hair loss and baby bangs, you aren’t alone. As Today’s Parent reported, losing about one-third of your hair about three months after birth is super common and normal. Celebrities like Ashley Graham have been vocal about their own struggle with postpartum bangs. The model and mom of three posted a photo of her bangs, saying “I mean at least it’s growing.” To get you through the months of regrowth, there are some things you can do to help.
