Lots of backcombing and then smoothing? Go to a salon and see if they’ll do your hair in the style you want, tell them you want it to look thick. There’s lots of tricks us hairstylists have, include products 😀

Losing hair sucks, I lost a TON after I had my first daughter.

Eventually the hair loss will slow down, when that will be is anyones guess. birth control & pregnancy both made my hair fall out, but eventually it normalized when my hormones regulated.

My hair is admittedly thinner to when I was pregnant/on birth control, but if I remember/compare it to what it was like prior to both, it is about the same density/thickness really.

Definitely talk to a stylist about extension. I’ve got really fine hair and I seem to remember my styist saying something about how the extensions would be too damaging on my hair. Maybe you’ve got thick locks and just need a boost in the amount of hair in general. But definitely do some research. I wouldn’t want you damaging your hair. I’m sending you good luck vibes though! I’m sure your hair will end up looking fabulous on your big day!

as a hairdresser Wink i would definitely reccomend taking a prenatal vitamin (seriously, do it.) also nioxin haircare line is fantastic for people with thinning hair, also adding a few highlights makes hair appear thicker… there is also this product that paul mitchell makes called Thicken Up and it has this ingredient in it called panthenol that actually swells your hair strand to make your individual hairs appear thicker!

I have alopecia and get big bald spots occasinally. My doctor gives me steroid shots in the spots and prescribes me a cream (forget the name) to speed up hair growth. I have also used nioxin. Nioxin seemed to work, but stopped using it because it dried up my hair.
