Kali was born with so much hair! ( I experienced a lot of heartburn while pregnant). But then her hair started to fall out, kind of like how I experienced postpartum hair loss. I realized that her hair wasn't growing back as fast as I thought it should, so I started using this product that I absolutely love, Jamaican black castor oil! I use it on my hair all the time. I was hestitant to use it on her but, I did, and it works wonders! If it's too thick you can pair it will olive oil. Head over to my blog to read more about it!

Postpartum hair loss

Hey Royals, Today I wanted to talk to you about postpartum shedding and hair loss because it's really hitting home for me.
