As you already know, our lovely head-babe-in-charge is expecting a little one soon, so we snuck in a few questions about how pregnancy changes your hair. Check out what Myleik had to say.
How did your hair change during pregnancy?
Myleik: My hair is growing like crazy and not shedding much at all. I’ve put it away in protective styles because, between not feeling well, trying to exercise and still having a job, I took the path of least resistance.
Got it. What styles work best for you while pregnant?
Myleik: I learned that braids aren’t your friend when you’re pregnant because your hair grows SO fast. After a few weeks my hair looked MONTHS old. I haven’t worn a sew-in in years, but I went back to one for this pregnancy and it’s EASILY the best decision.
If you’re not as lucky as Myleik to have flourishing tresses, here are a few tips to maintaining healthy strands while sporting your bump:
Mommy Scalp Massages: Scalp massages stimulate the hair follicles, encourage blood flow to the scalp and feel ah-mazing. Enlist your mate or friend to give you a scalp massage with your Creme of Nature Coconut Oil Essential 7 Treatment.
Wait 12 Weeks Before Making a Transformation: Hair changes usually tend to show up within the 12 weeks, so try to wait it out to see exactly what changes are happening to your hair before making any significant changes.
