oh no!

So i'm 3 months post op, 37 pounds down and now my hair is falling out! wtf?? I take vitamins and get plenty to eat, whats the deal? I already have somewhat thin hair, i can't afford to lose any. This sucks. Has anyone had this? what should I do? I heard to take extra Zinc and I'm going to get back on my protein shakes, but other than that I'm out of ideas. Help!

I am almost 3 months banded too and exsactly the same... hair falling out thin all over.. and I already have very fine long hair.

My hair dresser recommends Nioxin which is ment to stimulate the scalp and clear the hair follical..

let me know if you find something that works

Hi Ashli, I started taking Biotin before surgery. It helps with hair, skin and nails. As I am only a month out of surgery, I have had no hair loss yet. My nails are stronger than ever though! I got the Biotin at Walmart in the vitamin section. Good luck!

i agree with miss vickie....biotin all the way! my friend had gastric bypass and her hubby was banded, they both took biotin and had extremely minimal hair loss...i haven't started taking it, and i'm starting to lose some hair, but mine is super thick so you can't tell...

Biotin! I am 3 months out also and haven't had hair loss issues yet. Hope the Biotin wards it off!

Same here. I've been taking biotin for about 2 months and think it has helped. I'm only losing about half the hair I did before. I have no idea the cause. My hairdresser also recommended trying Omega 3 and 6. She said it helps. I don't take it as it makes my joints hurt. Try to go an extra day between washing too.
