Natural Hair and Bariatric Surgery


40 posts in this topic

Are there any natural hair woman whom have gotten Bariatric surgery? I would like to know about your hair loss and did your hair change.

After almost 4 years natural, I am just learning my hair and I am wondering will it change or fall out? If, so how long did it take to grow back?

Almost everyone loses lots of their hair during the first year. It can thin evenly over the head, or have almost bald Patches. It starts growing back in after a year or so.

I started wearing my hair in it's naturally curly state shortly before I had sleeve surgery. I hoped that if it started thinning after surgery, wearing it curly would help it look fuller. I found a couple of products from Mixed Chicks that I like a lot. Post-op, your hair might change, but you can't know until it happens. If it does change, you'll learn how to work with it just like you did when you went natural. Good luck!!

Yeap, that was a big fear for me. I had lost a lot during WEN, and blamed menopause. Then over the past year and some looking good. Just had sleeve 1/10 and know what's ahead. Many take all the Vitamins, and Biotin but unfortunately around month 5 or 6 you read the stories. YouTube it. Still good to do vitamins, my biotin and evening primrose, I will not be giving up. I was thinking of amping up juicing in a few months. All those pure vitamins, like a glass a day! Beets, rosemary included good for hair, kale, carrots, keep eating eggs (good biotin source)
