I just bought a wig topper this week! It's really nice. Looks very natural and was about $180. I'm still losing a ton of hair but at least I have my confidence back... for now! I lose the most hair after washing it so i only wash it once a week.

It looks great! I have really fine thin hair due to pcos and genetics. Thinking about getting one before I go back to work. Where did you get yours?

I went to a place that specializes in wigs for chemo patients. All in it cost $230 (including shampoo/conditioner/moisturizer). Well worth it! I love it and it looks so natural :)

When ever I see posts like these, I nervously read in hopes I find someone that hasn't lost any hair. Did any of you take Qsymia as a diet pill/weight loss effort before surgery? I took it for a couple years and my hair thinned quite a bit. I wonder if it was the pill or the sudden weight loss at the time. Also, during my Divorce, my hair looked bad. Stress is a huge trigger. My hair is finally full and closer to it's natural state than it's been in years. @Roxine - your hair looks beautiful. I'd definitely pay $230 if necessary too. Glad you found a solution. Recently I heard that it's not so much the rapid weight loss that causes Hair loss but more so the anesthesia in the hospital during surgery. Something about how the anesthesia basically turns your hair follicles dormant and then 4-6 months later the loss starts and is so sudden because you're not losing and regrowing monthly like normal, healthy people. I'm not sure if I understood all that correctly and if there are some medical articles to support it. But, it was terrifyingly interesting.
