Hair is feeling very coarse ?

Recommended Posts

Ok I have only shed some hair, I'm 2 months post op, and I have notice my hair feels dry and coarse?

Also my skin always itches and I think it's because of dry skin ?

Anybody else?

Hope you don’t mind if I suggest some things that helps me with that. I take Natures way Alive! hair skin & nails gummies with 300mg collagen. I also take omegas, my favorite is hero nutritionals Omega 3 with chia seed (also gummies) and my Multivitamin is Garden of Life mykind organics Whole Foods Gummy drops (it’s actually a prenatal Vitamin which is common in bariatric patients) I was going to switch to a one a day tablet but can’t find any without added iodine and the whole food based nutrition absorbs better. (I get them from vitacost.com)

I find certain Vitamins help a lot with dry hair and skin. Also any itching or irritated skin I recommend Tamanu oil, even for blemishes.

Make you're hitting your daily Protein goals and you might consider taking Biotin for hail and nails

Are you hitting your daily Protein targets?
Yes, I eat meat mostly and I like to have a Protein Shake at night

I was sleeved in Match 2018. I started losing hair at 6 months out and am still losing it. It is so bad that my scalp would sunburn over this past summer.

My dietician said that Hair loss is due to the very low calorie diet we are on i the beginning.

I had to revise to a bypass 3 weeks ago and am nervous about having even more hair loss. Protein is very important but I have hit protein goals since first surgery. I have been taking a good Biotin supplement from the start. This time I am using a Shampoo that is said to stop the production of dht. I have my fingers crossed that it will at least help.

I also get cold easier than I did pre op. I have heard the same from many bariatric surgery patients.

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        Congratulations. It’s a great feeling when the weight disappears & you can start to do so much more. 😁

      @DaisyChainOz, @Arabesque ... am totally thinking of both of you this very moment as I watch the final set of the Millman-Federer match at the AO... I am riveted and literally screaming at the TV...

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.
