"These supplements have the essential nutrients that the hair follicle needs to maintain the growth phase, and strengthen the hair shaft," she says. "They help promote growth and prevent hair breakage as well."

Viviscal includes a blend of marine protein, biotin, zinc, vitamin C, horsetail extract, and iron, to nourish hair from within and promote growth. Keep in mind that postpartum hair loss is normal and temporary.

"Postpartum hair loss is caused by fluctuations in hormones," says Dr. Talakoub, founder of the online shop DermToDoor. "The lowered estrogen and increased progesterone send the hairs into the shedding phase approximately three months after delivery. Women who are susceptible to it can get it with each pregnancy, however, postpartum stress and depression can make it significantly worse."

This hair loss typically reverses itself by your baby's first birthday, but adding in some extra nutrients can help speed up the process. To take advantage of this sale, add the Viviscal Hair Growth Supplements to your cart ASAP.
