After having babies, many women have the same complaint (besides our bodies never looking the same) – MY HAIR IS AWFUL! When I got pregnant with my first baby, my hair started falling out – I don’t have much hair to begin with so it was a huge problem! Thankfully it started growing back during my pregnancy but after labor and delivery, it started falling out AGAIN. My mane had short, stick straight regrowth mixed with patchy spots and other normal long hair. Throw that in with post-baby body issues and pale anemic skin – I was desperate for something to make me feel and look better!
Refusing to let a patchy mullet be my fashion destiny, I again went on the hunt to fix my hair and course friendly to my Mogul Mom budget.
Pinterest became my best friend during pumping sessions and I discovered natural remedies to make your hair grow faster. Skeptical as usual, I opted for one of the easiest remedies that incorporated one ingredient I could find in my cabinet – VINEGAR.
- Mix 1 part vinegar (apple cider vinegar is the best but white vinegar works great too) and 2 parts water.
- Pour on your scalp and let fall onto your hair during the “final rinse” in the shower. Be careful to not get the vinegar rinse in your eyes and/or in your mouth for obvious reasons.
- Let the vinegar sit for a couple minutes then briefly rinse again. Done!
- Note: I also keep a spray bottle of white vinegar in my cabinet and spray it on my hair when I get out of the shower. It helps to dissolve iron and residue left over from our extremely hard water. This was recommended to me by a professional and its my go to!

Not sure if this works but I am thinking about trying it. I can’t imagine it’s great for colour treated hair though. Any ways, thought I’d share since I have been posting about hair lately.
I looked up vinegar rinses with color treated hair and some sites said its great … some said its just okay. If you try it let me know how it works for you!
I was hoping to see a picture of the result!
This whole hair thing makes me so sad. I have fine hair like you do and seeing it fall out like crazy is just not nice. Though it is getting slightly better. I started letting it out a few weeks ago. My son is 7 months old now…
Oh my name is Eszter by the way. Nice to meet you!
I will post a picture in the next couple days so you can see! My hair is really fine and I had almost bald spots after babies. The vinegar worked well for me and took a little patience. Let me know how it works for you!
It might take some time for me to explain housekeeping that I would like them to bring me some vinegar…HAHA
I live in a five star hotel on a Thai island…
But you are tempting me! 🙂
