Anyone cut their hair dramatically after weight loss?



Recommended Posts

Coming up to the 70lb loss mark and considering cutting my hair. Not just a trim but taking it all off. Anyone else cut their hair dramatically after weight loss? If you have pictures would love to see them. This is just a fun chat about what you did to your hair after weight loss. Maybe you died it dramatically or totally change your style. Would love to hear from you.

One of the guys in my Bariatric Surgery Support Group meetings completely shaved his head after surgery. It gave him a new look and he was pleased with that.

I've had the same haircut since 8th grade. I think I'm ready for a change but not sure what. I looked up men's haircuts and they all seem so complicated.

I have a pretty face but I am not about the short hair life.

I have curly hair and now I feel like I am more of straight hair person so now I wear long straight hair wigs. Which is a huge departure from my naturally curly hair.

My face shape is different and straight hair looks better.

I love short hair on me but with all the weight gain my face is too round for short hair right now so as soon as I feel my face is slim enough (my sx is in May) I am probably cutting it off again. The first time I did it I wasn't sure how it would look as was afraid since I had hair just past my shoulders all my life but I looked and felt amazing with short hair and knew regardless it would grow back if I didn't like it

18 years ago, i became a member of cancer survivors

i decided to have my whole head of hair shaved

i wanted to take charge of my hair, not the other

way around.

interchange cancer survivor with sleeve survivor

There is a saying, "when a woman cuts off her hair she is changing her life". Cut it! It will regrow! Embrace and welcome the change!

My husband loves my long black hair, but when it starts to get a bit thin and has been falling lately due to thyroid, I had to cut off about 6". As long as I dont go super short, he is ok with it.

Cutting your hair can make you feel powerful,,I say go for it. Love what you see in the mirror!

It's so funny you posted this. I've had long hair my whole life. I've been thinking about doing a chop for the first time ever a few months after surgery. Nothing drastic, just a lob (long bob), especially once I start going through the temporary Hair loss stage. If you'd asked me before if I'd ever cut it, I'd have said absolutely not! [emoji28] But for some reason, I'm kind of ready for a change. Funny how having this surgery makes you rethink a lot of things!

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

        I guess I could, but the idea of being out there for all to see just skeeves me out! Nope, not for me ;)

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
