Hair loss: It is normal postpartum to have hair loss but you should go to the doctor to make sure everything is alright with your thyroid and iron levels. Also you can start taking biotin which may help lessen hair loss.

Normal: This is normal 3-4 months after you give birth. It will grow back. If you are not breast feeding you can use topical Minoxidil to make it grow back faster.
