I take a bariatric Multivitamin and hair, skin & nails Vitamins. O don't think it helps. I'm also losing hair rapidly. I have plenty of hair, but still worried.

Im also 4.5 months out. I can feel short stubby hairs all over in my scalp coming in, so maybe that is a good sign it will be growing back soon.

Good luck!

I'm at 4mos PO sleeve. I have noticed my hair is falling like 20 times more than at the beginning. Is there an additional Vitamin for it? I take 1 Bariatric Advantage capsule a day, thank you!

My nutritionist strongly suggested getting as close to your Protein requirement as you can to prevent or decrease Hair loss. I have not lost any hair at all. I know everyone is different, just trying to help.

I don't know if there's much you can do about other than keep on top of your Protein and Vitamins so it doesn't get any worse than it would be otherwise. Just know it's temporary and it'll grow back...

Hmmn I seem to practically live at Wal-Mart so I'll try finding this Shampoo called Bask. I started out a red- head and science says we have the fewest hairs per square inch in the first place, Tomkitten was nagging me to have my hair cut when he goes to Great Clips, probably this week. Why bother? I have kept it in pixie since this all started And I doubt,it's worth a financial outlay! Not bald but sure not thick either.👸

        It will be interesting to watch as this theory develops. Thanks for posting!

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.

      slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.
      hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.
      just got back from a wedding in OR. and man am i afraid to get on the scale

        Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.
