There are no vitamins that will help. You are losing hair all of sudden that you would have normally lost, but your body's natural cycle of hair growth was interrupted by your pregnancy. Your head saved up all of the hair that it would have normally shed gradually, held on to it while you were pregnant, and now wants to drop it as your hormone levels return to normal. You can't keep those hairs. The follicles need to get back to their regular pattern of dropping the hair, resting and growing a new hair. You aren't really losing hair, you're just returning to your normal pre pregnancy volume.
