Report on my hair Loss & Spring Favourites: Schwarzkopf Bonacure Volume Boost

Happy Saturday my lovelies! How are you doing!
It's time for another spring favorite! It is about HAIR. So I used to be very proud of my hair. It was thick (not the thickest but thick enough) shiny, healthy, and quite a lot. Then, during the period I breast feed my baby I started losing my hair. It was so awful to see all this amount of hair on my pillow every morning, and when I washed my hair I had the impression I was going to become completely bold. Honestly, I had many bold spots that I try very hard to hide. I was advised to take some vitamins special for hair and nails, as an attempt to stop the loss and help it grow back. I did this as a treatment for three months, and my hair does fall less, and I have some hair growing back, which is noticeable near the temples of my forehead, but my hair is thin and bristle, has lost shine and looks flat. I feel definitely bad about this and I still haven't made up my mind to the fact that I'm never getting my hair back. so I'm still trying things and there is where this post goes: Schwarzkopf Bonacure Volume Boost is a great shampoo I've started using recently (3 weeks ago) and I already notice a remarkable improvement of how my hair looks.
Just to illustrate I'm posting some pictures of the state of my hair from the birth of my baby until recently. These were not taken for comparison, they're just normal photos, but you can still see the difference.

February 2012, 6 days after birth of my baby:a lot of shiny long hair.

May 2012, Baptism of my boy: I was to the hair stylist and this was the best she could do.

July 2012, bold spots are already visible

August 2012: my hair line was considerably backwards specially near the temples

September 2012, I got another cut to try to "even" the mess. My hair is thin, dry, without shine. I started taking the vitamins.

February 2012: my hair is thin, flat, shine-less, scarce and my hair line has moved back a little more.

So, I'm not saying this shampoo has done a miracle. My hair growing back or not will not depend on the shampoo. BUT this product has given me a little more shine, and volume, and my hair FEELS a little thicker, and for me that's great! I do not say this is the holy grail, but compared to what I used to have I'm satisfied for now. This is how my hair looks today, washed yesterday with Schwarzkopf BC Volume boost, no conditioner whatsoever, just a little blow-dry and brush.

So, if you have any advice for this girl's hair to grow back, or to look healthier, do not hesitate to write it in the comments, I'd be very grateful. Oh, please, note I had never coloured my hair, and I'm not planning to do it, so that's not a good solution for me.
Love you all!

  1. Yo nunca había oído de la perdida de cabello, durante o después de un embarazo, no tengo idea de esas cosas aun. Ami se me callo mucho el cabello antes de que me operaran de la vesícula, ya que estuve enferma por tres años Y la doctora en Holanda creía que solo tenia estrés.

    Lo que estoy usando y me ha estado dando resultados es el aceite de coco, mascarillas de cerveza una ves al mes. vitaminas

    Lo que si no te recomiendo es que te pongas Queratina, pues también me la recomendaron y eso mas bien me tumbo el pelo más, me quito más brillo ,y las ondas de mi cabello, ya que tengo el cabello ondulado.

    Sigo un blog de unas chicas de India, ellas tienen remedios caseros naturales y si no me equivoco también tienen recetas para evitar la caída del cabello.Me entero de algo más te aviso.

    1. Gracias por tu respuesta Andrea, Tengo que probar varias cosas, pero lo que me está pasando tiene que ver también con las hormonas, y eso no puede remediarse con productos locales. De todos modos siempre ayuda para dar brillo y cuerpo al cabello, tengo que probar alguna mascarilla. Pero dudo que eso me haga crecer de nuevo el cabello que ha caído :(

    2. Algo que también ayuda es el caster oil, combinado con el aceite de coco en cantidades iguales, y úsalo de noche en tu cabello, en cantidades moderadas , ya que tampoco debes parecer que eres un sarten listo para freír un huevo, bueno odio su olor y textura pero parece ser muy bueno, up lo uso en mis cejas y ahora están mas pobladas. Kelp is una vitamina que la usan para el cabello y el cuerpo,
      también es una buena opción, trata de usar lo mas natural posible ya que mucho químico puede tener los resultados adversos. Mascarillas para el pelo, hay una de huevo con miel y plátano que recomiendan. Sobre todo cuida tu dieta consume alimentos ricos en vitamina E y omega 3, 7
      Los que tienen omega las consigues en las nueces y en el pescado, pero las nueces tienen una buena dosis de Omega. Aguacate, nueces, espinacas. Usa champú de bebe y sin sales ,sulfatos. Algo que también tumba el pelo es el exceso de residuos de productos, una mezcla de bicarbonato con agua ( formando una pasta) ayuda a deshacerse de los residuos y da vitalidad. Los frutos secos también están llenos de vitaminas. también toma vitamina E en combinación del Kelp usa la vitamina E en capsulas , y mira que consigas la de E100.

      Me entero de otros remedios te aviso.

  2. What a story. It must be so hard beginning to have less quality in the hair but hopefully it will grow back and that the shine will increase after some time. I don't have a child as you know but my hair has always been thin and not so shiny, but now days I dye it and in between I use hair masks to vitalize my hair. :)

    1. Oh, Gelic, thanks so much for your sweet comment! I really hope you're right and that my hair will grow back, I really hope it will. It's been more than a year I'm going like this...

  3. As I don't know in which part of Switzerland you live and we always communicate in english, I don't even know if you speak german. If you do, there's this german forum all about long hair, where I'm registered, and I've found a Haarausfall Infosammlung, maybe you'll find something useable there (there are also some other threads about hair loss)

    1. Hi Aglaya! Thanks for this info, it's a pity I don't speak or understand German, it sounds like a great tip! thanks for caring, it means a lot to me.

    2. I found this thread in an american forum, it's about hair loss after giving birth. Maybe that helps?

    3. Thanks Aglaya! I read the whole thread, and it was very interesting, most girls regrew their hair 6 months later, so they all agree more than 6 months is not "normal". I'll definitely be consulting my doctor about this.
      Thanks so much!

  4. Oh I know how you feel, a little bit anyway. Because as you may know I suffer from very thin hair and you can see my scalp because my hair doesn't grow so densely.
    I don't have any good advice for you, I've tried so many treatments and shampoos and pills. But now I take Silicea Original, I haven't noticed any change in my hair yet, but my nails are getting stronger. :-)
