hair loss at 3 to 4 months, does it come back??????
on 9/17/12 4:10 pm
so I am now 4 months out and 50 lbs down ( from a 200lb /5ft 2' start ).
I had thick, thick shoulder length hair. I have been lossing lots for a month now and my dietican tells me I am getting enough protein but not enough calories ( max 800 a day ). Just never hungry but eating as much as I can.
I have read some old posts and it appears at about 6-8 months the hair loss stops- or falls out at a normal rate.
My question does it grow back in to what it was before or not? Does it grow back in slowly starting at 6-8 months out?
I know it can be different in everyone but interested to see different peoples experiences. I think mine isnt that noticable because I have fair hair and it doesnt contrast against the scalp color.
Like many of you, my hair was one of my best assets so hope I dont lose to much

Thanks for the positive words.
I had to cut 6+ inches off of mine (in two separate cuts) because my the time I was about 6 or 7 months out, it was so thin that the bottom of it was very "scraggly", so I cut it to just below shoulder length, then I had to cut it above the shoulders because it got so thin that you could see the light through it below my ears if I was standing near a light or window.

My hair is now like it always has been. I cut my hair in a bob, but not because of loss. I just wanted it shorter after a lifetime of very long hair.
