Yep, however you might wanna make sure and wait for someone else here to confirm it as I am not confident. Better yet, why don't you ask the Medifast guys because they can answer you better...

I lost a bunch of hair drom 2-7 months. THen it came back with a nice wave I never had before. I always had very fine straight hair. Now I have fine hair with a bit of a wave..

Like everyoone says there isn't much you can do to prevent it the biotin, zinc, vitamins, protein, Nioxin etc. might help. It is partially from the rapid weight loss and partially from the anesthesia. People also have hair loss who have other surgeries as well..

Even with the hair loss, I would do it again in a NY min. Small price to pay for all I have accomplished!.

My hair started coming out in droves at 4 months and I was totally freaked out by it. I have fine hair so I wasn't happy about that. I started taking Biotin, took my vitamins faithfully (still do) and it started to slow down at 7 months. Now I think I lose a normal amount in the shower, not sure. The funny thing is, I can see all the new growth coming in. It is like I have a long crew cut under my regular hair.

I look like a baby bird but I'm happy the hair is growing back. I know it is temporary. After what we all went through, we can take this too...

I was told that you will lose hair as your body deals with less protien, but you will get it back as your lifestyle "normalizes." Protien first is the key. I've also heard that Nioxin and Biotin are good for hair growth, but I haven't tried them myself. My hair is thinning and has been over the past six months as I've been on a pre-op diet...

I'm with the group on this one. I had long hair and at the 3 month mark I started shedding... so I cut it shorter... I'm still loosing a lot but it's not as noticable. My doc promised no one has ever gone bald but I'm begining to wonder how! The one thing I'm looking forward to is it all growing back nice and healthy!..

Im one of those that dumps hair after any.

Surgery.

My hair had just stopped dumping from my.

Hysterectomy.

When I had GBS. The shedding from GBS had slowed, new growth was coming inand I just had to go off and have plastic.

Surgery.

I figure just about the time it stops dropping from this plastic.

Surgery.

, Ill have my second one! Dont be surprised if you see me rockin the Sinead OConner look one of these days!.

I dropped a lot of hair when I lost 60 lbs on Atkins about 5 years ago, too. So, for me, I really dont think protein has a lot to do with it. Dropping hair is just how it responds to.

Surgery.

And weight loss..

For me, the good news is that I was originally blessed with crazy thick, naturally curly hair. My hairdresser practically giddy over how easy my hair is to handle now (although it feels like someone elses hair to me). We went with a one-length bob to help it look thicker (no WAY I could have pulled that off before it all fell out I would have looked like a scarecrow!) Other good news: it doesnt take as long to do in the morning. I can blow dry it in about 5 minutes and it only takes another 5-10 to straighten. On the downside, I have lots of 1-2 inch hairs sticking up all overmay have to go short for awhile so it can catch up without looking like Ive been electrified!.

One or two women in my local support group say they had to resort to wigs for awhile. Fortunately, it does grow back..

And no matter how much falls out, getting my life back is worth it!!.
