Dandruff! HELP!

Ok mummies. I don’t know if this even make any sense at all but can post pregnancy cause dandruff?? Let’s say I have been using this A brand not for Long but safe to say I’ve been using during pregnancy. And now that I’ve given birth, it’s bad. Been having it for at least 2 months in considering the 1st month I’m not allowed to wash my hair. I thought maybe it’s just my scalp getting use to the shampoo so I kinda ignore when it 1st happen. I mean it’s a decent brand. So I was just wondering. Def changing but just curious, anyone else other than me. Or maybe just me.

To get rid of the problem properly, you'll need to use a medicated dandruff shampoo a few times a week. Once you see improvement, you can reduce the frequency to once a week. It's all the hormonal changes that is affecting the oil balance of your scalp.

I got my dandruff super bad during my pregnancy... i change it to wowo and surprisingly it became better... The previous brand i have been use for 10over years suddenly alot of dandruff... So I assume should be the changes of hormones

Post pregnancy tend to sweat more so that could have contributed to the dandruff. Switch shampoo brands. Use a strong/medicated anti dandruff shampoo to clear the worst of the drandruff first.

I get my hub to use this shampoo. U can only use it once/twice a week and the rest of the days just wash with normal shampoo. It works!
