Pregnancy is one of the most awaited times for women. Period of feminine self-knowledge and of course, realization. And it’s not that the famous popular saying: “pregnant woman, looks more beautiful”, is right, after all, the action of hormones and food care make the skin and hair much healthier.
But that doesn’t mean you should leave aside some daily care that is extremely necessary to maintain a woman’s health and beauty. Hair, for example, is one of the parts of the body that deserve attention.
During gestation, it is common to have changes in the wires: those that were smooth, can become dry or vice versa. This happens due to the action of hormones, but in general, the wires return to normal after the end of pregnancy.
Use shampoo and conditioner for your hair type
Choosing cosmetics that are suitable for your hair type is essential to bring hydration and viscosity to your hair. That’s because these products are manufactured to precisely meet your needs. “Not only pregnant women but also non-pregnant women should encourage the right products for their hair. Changing brands at least two or three times a month can also help bring more shine and health to your hair”, explains hairdresser Juliana Campos.
Homemade moisturizers yes!
Moisturizing hair with aloe vera and the famous homemade recipes is recommended. Juliana warns that “homemade creams are also effective. Grandma’s ancient ritual of rubbing aloe on the strands is ideal and leaves hair healthy and shiny”.
Also betting on hydration with creams indicated by the dermatologist during pregnancy is essential. “Pregnant women can never use cosmetics without medical advice. It is necessary to have the follow-up of the dermatologist so that he can indicate the best options. In the case of moisturizing creams, I recommend using it at least once every 15 days”, says Juliana.
Don’t do anything without medical advice
The ideal is that pregnant women do not use any type of chemical product, as the components can bring complications to the fetus and allergy to the mother. Therefore, before adhering to any product or even cream, do not forget to ask your gynecologist for guidance. “Pregnant women should check that the product or cosmetic they are going to use will not cause any problems in the future”, comments Juliana.
