I started taking Biotin when my hair began falling out.
I’ve never had curly hair before.
It worked for me. I don’t think that it actually stopped the hair loss very much as it helped the new growth. You should take this seriously. IT DOES get better! It’s a process and it can be scary at times.
The new growth looks really strange. It sticks up and it’s curly. I know a few people, myself included that had no clue she was wearng a wig until she ld us. I had thick hair until I turned 60, and it began to fall out. She had ordered hers online and it had cost less than $ If I could find a wig that looked as good as hers did, I would wear it even if my hair grows back! Short, fufflly styles, not to take the longer, thick ones. She said the key was to get one that didn’t have lots of hair.
Now I am 15 weeks post op, and the my hair is falling like crazy.
It has fallen out steadily, right after I had the surgery.
I am seriously considering a wig soon. I know a woman who recently had to begin wearing a wig, and she looks terrific! Genetics, To be honest I expect, my mother is almost tally bald. Either I know it’s it isn’ maybe what you loose won’t be that much or maybe it might be a lot, or in your cards to lose it Yes, that’s right! Undoubtedly it’s the bodies reaction to stress/trauma -not specifically nutritional problems. Anyway, it’s luck of the draw. Grand lot of us lose hair -and often starting about 4 months. Consequently, much as women find they lose hair after giving birth -it is because of the stress the body goes through and among the defense mechanisms is forgoing hair. You see, I lost a n of hair years before WLS due to being in the hospital for an infection. Fact, you can already see my scalp at the p of my head. I haven’t even started losing yet. I’m a little freaked my next step will have to be a wig.
I’m screwed. I already have super short pixie cut and VERY thin hair. Others, including me, went for a layered, shorter cut which gives thinning hair more volume and makes hair loss less noticeable). Certainly, whenever nothing is planning to prevent it, fact is, either your body decides to shed the hair depending on the trauma or it doesn’ if it decides to. You can take supplements like Biotin and Silica which may help. This is the case. They do not prevent loss, Topical treatments like Rogaine, shampoos or conditioners only promote new growth. Nothing. I do don’t forget to ride it out. Here’s, unfortunately, just my luck! Protein is your the best defense -hair is made mostly of protein. Supplements and such promote new growth though, that we all seek for so I know it’s still in top-notch interest to take such things.
Get your protein in.
I wanted to say thanks to everyone.
I knew I wasn’t alone in it. Following everyone’s suggestions like protein surely lol. Generally, it’s going short. In the end I know my hair will grow back and I’m hoping better for it since it being short it’ll limit stressors. Then, I actually heading to the salon at this point to do something I fear the most! Certainly, never thought of myself in the way I have since this thought came into my head! I have the nerve now so I’m heading out. Notice, I hereafter again maybe I’ll like it. Wow its a self realization! On p of that, I stopped dyeing my hair and bit the bullet and had about 8 inches cut off.
When I lose another 20 pounds or so I’ll probably cut it shorter.
I had pretty steady hair loss for about ’23’ months.
I’m getting used to seeing the real me in the mirror with my natural hair color. I love it since I’ve had it cut. I haven’t dyed my hair in about 4 months now. Before removal of excessive fat surgery I will have never considered having short hair.
It’s the first time I’ve seen my natural color in YEARS! Does this stop and will any grow back. I am 6 months ‘postop’ and my hair is thinning and starting to fall out. I look at my self and need to cry and get angry sometimes. I am taking biotin and was for over a month. Besides, didn’t realize I should have been taking it before surgery already. It makes me feel fabulous. I am 36 and I wear a wig nearly any day!
