  • Hair problems due to weight loss

    Hi
    Anybody experienced massive hairloss and red spots on the scalp after losing weight?

    i lost quite a significant amount of weight since i left secondary school, and my hair will drop in diffuesed big lots , plus recently i went to the doc because the hair wont stop dropping and discovered red spots too.
    Its quite bad cos my hair is very limp now, and can see my scalp plus the red patches.

    Doc recommened a cream, but anybody else have advice? redspots gone but my hair wont stop droping.

    Hey, the same thing happened to my cousin too! But as I'm not close to her, I only heard of her problem from my parents. There was a period of time, when she was balding quite badly (very evident bald patch in the centre of her scalp). She went to see a specialist though, and after some time, was 'cured' of it.

    On a side note, a hairdresser told me it's important to wash your hair daily and ensure your scalp is washed clean too. Contrary to popular belief (and also the fact that most girls with long hair wash their hair on alternate days), washing your hair daily will actually help you maintain a healthy scalp, hence minimising hair loss. Also, try not to tie your hair too much, as it will weaken the roots of your hair. Did you rebond your hair? If so, all the more you should let your hair 'relax' as much as possible by not tying it. I used to tie my rebonded hair, but the stress caused me quite a bit of hair loss too

    Btw, are you still on a weight loss plan? The hair loss could be due to the weight loss pills you're taking?

      I have hairloss problem after graduated from school. Before working, my weight is 45 to 46 kgs, but after working my weight dropped to 40 to 41 kgs.

      I feel that hairloss problem is due to stress and rebonding hair (I have not dye my hair before). After redonding for 4 to 6 months, my hair started to drop a lot. So I signed up a hairloss treatment course with hairdressing saloon, but still did not improve.

      I also went to see specialist. The first doctor told me that is normal to drop 50 to 150 hairs per day, he did not give me any medicine. The second doctor gave me some medicine to apply and eat. Now I just try to relax and do not think too much, hope the hairloss problem will improve.

        Yes, like your cousin, the bald area seems most eveident in the centre, have to comb my hair in such that it covers,
        Did she visit a specialist doctor or a trichologist?
        Did she recover her loss hair or did she just managed to stop the hair loss?

        I was my hair daily cos my scalp is oily, my doctor recommended too.

        I was thinking that the weight loss pills could have contributed, but it didnt have any chemicals that would cause hair loss tho.
        Meantime, im just thinking of ways to stop the hair from dropping , growing it back is another issue altogether.
        Its really heart ranching...
