Exactly when does hair loss stop?



Recommended Posts

For those veterans who experienced Hair loss, when did yours stop? I started losing hair at about 3 1/2 months post surgery. I'm now exactly 8 months out and I am still losing a TON of hair. I honestly have no idea how I have any left on my head. I keep hoping it will stop soon.

I think it was close to 6 months when I noticed a slowing in the amount of hair in my shower & about the house. It’s growing back nicely now - a few inches. I can really feel my old thickness returning. Woo hoo!

I didn't lose very much - but it went on for maybe three or four months (??)

My Hair loss started at 4 months and went on for another 4-5 months. From what I've read, the loss is from the dead hair getting pushed out by the new hair that is starting to regrow. My hair got quite thin but is now back to normal volume. BTW, I started mega doses of Biotin at 2 weeks post op, and it didn't help. Don't waste your money. :)

All the times I dieted hard it has lasted about 6-8 months with a variety of Hair loss. I noticed it slowing down during spring, and now it is regrowing like crazy. Had that mullet head for a while with all the little baby hair regrowing sticking right up. I cut it in a loob about 2 months ago after cutting it while high on benzons during easter and quarantine. It really helped having it cut shorter because it makes the hair look fuller.

Thanks. I'm about 4 1/2 months into loss so hopefully it will slow.

I was able to cut it to a bob (about 6 inches) so it doesn't look as raggedy. AND the stylist asked if I'd been losing a lot so I guess there are baby hairs up there. Now what I have just needs to stop falling out, and those baby hairs need to grow faster :)
