They say it's reaction to quick weight loss and lack of nutrition. I take Biotin to try to help. I haven't had much but I am just shy of two months out. Doc says 3 months is when it hits. I cut off my long hair so hopefully it won't be noticeable.

Hair loss isn't just caused by wls, it can actually be anything traumatic that has happened to your body. Such as, a car accident or child birth. I was researching this earlier and came across a members post from 2010. She said she didn't suffer from hair loss...she took 10,000mcg of Biotin a day and also used a product called kitoko oil and kept up with her Protein. She also said she colors her hair so it was chemically damaged and still didn't lose any. I hope this helps :)

I was told Biotin only helps with regrowth, having said that I take it. 3-6 months is supposedly the hair falling out main time and I just completed month 6 and yes, my hair started falling out right at about 3 months. At 6 months its still falling steadily. I think its really bad some days and others not as bad. Having said all that, I'm lucky I have thick hair. Good luck to those of you with thin hair. If I went bald this surgery would still be worth it. I'd get a haircut, hair piece or wig if I needed it. Good luck to all of you. My hair means a lot to me too and I was scared too. Now that I'm in the middle of it. ..I just can't wait for it to stop. Oh I get my Protein in everyday but could do better on Vitamins. Hope this helps and doesn't discourage anyone:-)

I get it every time I undergo general anesthesia--gall bladder, kidney stone removal, wrist surgery, WLS...waiting for it now post plastics. Usually hits me four months post op. They say it's all the hair that's in the telophase stage of growth dies and it takes that long for it to fall out. I'm sure it can be complicated by nutritional issues. I took tons of Biotin and didn't seem to help me out any sadly.

I am 4 months out and have been shedding like crazy!! Seriously, hand fulls of my hair fall out!! Thankfully I have extra thick hair but it is getting thinner! I have started taking Biotin to help with the re-growth rate. Like others have said...the weight loss is worth it. 58 pounds in 4 months is worth it to me and I'm just dealing with the temporary Hair loss.< /p>

I am about 4 1/2 months out and I am also losing a lot of hair. It has also gone from being thick to really thin. I also started taking Biotin and have not seen much of a change. I almost hate to wash my hair more than 3 times a week because when I do it comes out in clumps. Hopefully in time it gets better.

I had sleeve surgery in October 2014 and I started losing my hair in February. Hair loss continued through May. My hairdresser suggested using Rogaine, the hair mousse. I've ALWAYS had thin hair my whole life. I've actually got thick hair now, thicker than ever. I highly recommend using Rogaine. I'm still using it! Get the generic if you can - much cheaper and it's the same product.

It's temporary. It'll grow back. You'll probably the only person who even notices it's a little thinner.

Jeez!

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good

      Hi all! I’m Heidi, a Canadian ex-Pat living in Sydney, Australia. I’m doing this surgery because my mom died 10 years ago from obesity, she lived her own 600lbs life.  So at 116kg, it’s time to make sure my daughters don’t lose their mom to obesity.

      Drinking my favorite Premier Protein Shake for breakfast, and planned a nice healthy lunch today. Protein first, Veg second, then fruit, and carbs last.  💪
