Changes after hair loss

Silly, vanity post. Read at your own risk.

I've always had a dream that I could have mermaid hair. I'm not referring to the multi-colors that have become trendy over the last couple years. I'm referring to the length and waves.

Here is an example of what I mean by mermaid hair:

My hair is already to my boobs, so I'm good there. It is naturally wavy and thick. However, I need it to be just a little bit wavier to achieve my vision of mermaid hair.

I read a post previously where someone's hair grew back very curly after the loss, whereas it was straight before.

My Question: Have any of you had your hair grow back wavier or curlier after the hair loss? I'm curious if that was a one-off situation or if others had the same or similar experiences.

I believe it often changes texture. I'm not sure you're going to achieve mermaid hair though! Lol

I always have had very thick hair. It's almost like I have two head of hair: the top and sides are straight and the back and underneath are curlier. I wore my hair long for years. Not long after surgery I had it all cut off and donated it. I have been wearing it short since then and because it isn't as heavy and weighted down, it tends to be curlier.

I didn't notice any significant hair loss due to surgery.

I hope I'm as lucky as you with not having hair loss!

So far no hair loss for me. I noticed my hair actually getting thicker and grow faster post surgery.

I keep it shoulder length,as any longer gets annoying for me.

I discussed this with my NUT, and she said that because I keep taking my Vitamins and eating as per food plan, with the Protein intake, this definitely helps to keep the hair, or getting healthier hair post op.

No, I don't have Mermaid hair :)

It seems bit more wavier, but I live in humid Queensland, so humidity turns my hair slightly curly ....

I hate to break it to your but if you have curly wavy hair, your hair is just as likely if not more likely to grow back straight. So many of my curly/wavy friends end up with straight hair after having babies. A flood of hormones will change your hair texture.
