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

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.

      So months ago, the Kid thought it would be funny to create an account on here and troll me with it.  Figured out it was her a few days later, and had a laugh about it.  She's been trolling me on it ever since.
      This morning I went on to post something and realized after the fact that I posted using her account as she was on my laptop last night 🙄
      Trolling over, Kid.

      Ok I had surgery on Jan 27 2020 so I am 3 weeks out and have lost 32 lbs  I wish I had this done sooner. Now just trying to figure out different things to eat so I am not eating the same thing over and over. I did order some stuff today from the Bariatric Store and that stuff should be here in time for my next phase. I have a goal of 50 lbs by the first of June hope that is attainable. Good luck to every one on this journey
