Chopping it all off --- well not quite all



Recommended Posts

Like many, I've lost a TON of hair as part of this journey. In August, at 7 months out, I cut it to a long bob which helped, but as it started to grow out it quickly became scraggly and looked very fine. SO I did a major cut this week taking it to a long pixie (almost 10.5 months out) I am super happy at what a difference it made in appearance - parts of it are almost back to normal density with regrowth. Now if it only stops falling out and I can keep what I have.

Absolutely LOVE this cut on you!! You have a perfectly shaped head for the stacked height in back. It looks like a full, thick head of healthy hair. Congrats! So wish I could pull this off but don’t think I could. My hair has been falling out terribly for past months...each week I hope it will be the last but no, shocking. I just remind myself it’s better than carrying life shortening fat.

ENJOY THE BEAUTIFUL NEW YOU!💝

Your hair looks great! ❤️❤️


I would love to cut all of mine off. Lol. My Hair loss has been real, but not noticeable to others. I have had short hair off and on throughout my life. My husband is very resistant to short hair 🙄🙄 I am keeping it for now, to indulge him, but the moment the hair loss becomes too much, off it goes! 😬😬😬😬😬

I wasn't going to comment but it's a beautiful style. My hair is baby fine and I already struggle with metabolic disorders and lifelong chronic illness so my hair just suffered thinning and when I let it grow out it looked terrible. But I'd moved states and I'm not trusting and didn't find someone to do my hair.

I had to have two other surgeries around the same time as my gastric bypass surgery (Also my gallbladder during that surgery) did a number on my hair but I got my hair cut in a buzz cut pixie. Just a bit of length on top. And helps my hair not look so thin. I like how it feels. And it finally started growing thicker after awhile. Until I had skin removal surgery and my hair didn't grow for a good few months.

In addition to my food based Multivitamin, I take a hair, skin and nails supplement with Biotin plus I take lots of collagen. I take Vitamin C sorry I can't remember but I think it helps absorption of collagen. I also take Omega 3-6-9, and turmeric, and calcium chews. My hair is baby fine but now growing thicker.

Glad you like your pixie! I of course take all my Vitamins and Biotin and Protein. I have collagen but am not consistent with it...

When it wa collagen powder I'd forget but it is easier to remember chews or tablets. Right now I'm using the tablets I just put them in a pill box for the week. It was just more in budget right now since it was good for two month supply. I have taken it before and it seems to do good.
