Lea Michele shares hair loss photo

Lea Michele is shedding light on a common side effect of new-mom life.

“The postpartum hair loss is REAL,” Michele, 34, captioned an Instagram Story on Tuesday.

In the photo, Michele, who welcomed her son, Ever Leo, in August, with husband Zandy Reich, holds a clump of hair in the palm of her hand.

Michele shared a second picture of herself that showcased her her chest-length tresses.

“Enjoying this long hair while it lasts because the mom bob is right around the corner,” the “Glee” alum wrote.

Michele is most likely experiencing telogen effluvium, or TE, a stress-induced shedding caused by an event such as childbirth. It’s completely normally and usually temporary, according to Dr. Adam Friedman, professor and interim chair of dermatology at the George Washington School of Medicine and Health Sciences.
