How to care for your hair in pregnancy

Pregnancy is a time of great change for those that choose to experience it – and these changes even extend to your hair! The extra hormones bouncing around in your body affects the way your hair looks and feels, and while some women love these changes, others find their new locks difficult to maintain. Here are some ti

Keep cleansing

During pregnancy we recommend regular shampoo and conditioning to keep those extra oils in check (even when motivation is low to do anything except sit on the couch). A product like helps you cleanse gently, while strengthening hair and reducing scalp sensitivity. If you want to make the most of coloured hair during pregnancy, the Vitamino Colour A-Ox range is the perfect place to start. With a shampoo, conditioner, mask and spray, they offer great all-round protection, while enhancing your colour and helping your hair texture stay soft and shiny.

Stay trimmed

No, we're not telling you to watch your weight while pregnant, however regular HAIR trims are highly recommended, especially in pregnancy! To keep that bulk and frizz at bay, ask your stylist to lighten up your load and add some layers into your locks. The trims will keep your hair much more manageable, and the extra shape around your face can help visually counteract facial swelling and roundness which many women are lucky enough to get during pregnancy!

Watch the water

While it's important for everyone to stay hydrated, drinking enough water has never been more important than it is in pregnancy. Along with maintaining a balanced diet, drinking the recommended amount of H20 is vital for so many reasons, but it will also effect the health and texture of your hair! While consuming increased liquid is a bit of a pain when you're pregnant and your bladder feels as big as a broad bean, the pros of this tip far outweigh the cons – so get drinking mama!

If all else fails and you still can't handle your hair, simply remember the mantra 'this too shall pass.' Everything is a phase in pregnancy, and your prenatal powerhouse hair will soon be forgotten as you get distracted by your beautiful new baby!
