I shaved my head...



Recommended Posts

I love it!!! I haven’t shaved my head just yet, still too nervous to despite the fact that I have frontal alopecia. I really need to do it... I wear wigs most of the time anyways, but it’s that option of going out without my wig anytime I need to that’s stopping me.

Way to go!!! I lost alot of hair about 4 months after my sleeve. Im blessed to have thick hair but it was still noticeable that it was thinner. It all did grow back in, its naturally curly so I had all of these frizzies all over my head but it did grow back!

It looks wonderful. I did it twice when I was younger. It’s so liberating! Good for you!

Good for you! I'm not there yet, but if my Hair loss started causing bald spots, I'd make the exact same decision. And a benefit is when you have regrowth, you won't have to worry about the mix of long and short hairs. You are beautiful. :780_sparkling_heart:

I have been combating Hair loss for about six months. Even contemplating baldness or wig if I could not put the brakes on the hair loss. Lucky for me I started with thick hair that needed thinning out once in a while. I have been using Sanar Naturals Collagen Wrinkle Formula, Biotin pill, biotin Shampoo and biotin conditioner. I take all my bariatric Vitamins and drink plenty of Water and eat more Protein whenever I can. My hairloss is slowing down as I close in on my goal. I would not look half as good as you do with my misshapen head. Congratulations!

Oh my god! That is some adorable hair!

My mom was kind enough to point out mine is a little thinner. I figured I’d just go back to a pixie if it became too thin, but then somehow I ended up with their weird bald spot in the back of head... and now I’m on the fence. 😂😂

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        You are allowed to feel tired, take naps and only do the minimum this soon after the surgery. Listen to your body and be good to yourself at this time. Most important things to care about at this time is hydration and protein. It is a full-time job to stay on top of that and prioritize your energy there for now. Just give your body the time to heal and adjust, don’t rush the recovery.

      seems like the biggest issue right now is consistency in my bowel movement, what are yall using. I've tried probiotics but no luck,

        I use benefiber everyday in my water. it is flavorless. On days when I get a little backed up I use Miralax. It works great without any cramping.
