I'm at 5 months today, 65.8 lbs down -- and I think about 2 lbs of that is my hair!

When does it start growing back? I'm pretty clever with a comb, hair spray and some hair fiber, but ouch it's getting sparse.

Any ideas?

That's the same response that I got from my doctor.

To be honest, I actually haven't lost any yet, but it'll just be three months on March 14th, which is when it is supposed to start for most individuals. I was told to get my protein and fluids and be vigilant about vitamins. I also take Biotin and Keratin....while they don't stop the hair loss, I'm hoping that's a good jumpstart on regrowing it.

My hair loss started about 4-5 months in and lasted until about 8-9 months post op. Now at 11 months post op it's growing back nicely and I have about 5+ inches of regrowth.

Mine didn't start in earnest until about 6 months out and it lasted until about 10-11 months. I'm 13 months and I have tons of flyaway regrowth.

When this has been asked in the past, most people replied that the shedding stopped somewhere between 9 - 12 months post-op. Mine eased up around 10 months, if memory serves.

I ended up going for a pixie cut when it was at its worst. No regrets there!

It already is!

It's new hair that is pushing out the old. Be prepared for the chia pet look very soon.

That my explain why there is not enough hairspray in the world to hold the halo frizz down!

I lost a ton from month 3-7. By month 9, I could see lots of new growth.
