During both my postpartum experiences I suffered severe hair loss. The worst of it is usually after I stopped breastfeeding. It’s dreadful and seems like forever. After Priya was born a childhood friend of mine launched her own hair care line, Asna Oil, which seemed like perfect timing.
Indians SWEAR by Amla oil. I remember my mom used to use Dabur Amla Oil (the one in the green box) in my hair when I was a young girl. I would lay my head on her lap and she would massage the oil into my scalp, then braided my hair until I washed it. It’s a memory I will have forever.
If Amla oil isn’t your thing, keep reading as I give an alternative below.
