    Hair loss query

    Hi Guys,

    I just wondered if anyone had suffered from any hair-loss whilst on TFR ? I already suffer from alopecia and as my hair is all tucked away in braids with extensions sewn on top, I think it's always in the back of my mind that when my plaits are undone for my new weave in January I could be completely BALD !
    (OK I know I'm being OTT dramatic but this is how I am haha)
    But yeah it would be nice to know if the rest of your heads of hair are OK or if you have noticed thinning etc...

    Can we take any supplements whilst doing TFR as I keep thinking 'Oh well maybe if I just took some SeaKelp tablets it might help' ;p xxx

    I've heard from others that the hair stops growing and thins out, and that some hair may fall out to make way for new hair, but you should be fine!

    Sorry that I'm not much help.

    Everyone is different Teddy. I did have hair loss but I was on LT for 6mths. My hair is quite thick and I didn't miss it really. Now it's growing back so I have mostly long hair interspersed with the shorter hair which is making my hair really poofy and curly which I'm liking. What you lose will grow back so don't worry

    Kay x x x
    Journey 3 Sort of Atkins started 14/1/2014 at 109.7Kg




    Journey 2 Lipotrim FAILED!! Got back on LT 5/11/13 after many restart attempts.
    98.4kg = 15st 7lbs but didn't last a week

    Journey 1 Lipotrim Started 22/10/2012 at 123.4kg (19st 7lbs) Target 65kgs (10st 3lbs) did 28 weeks 100% ending 29/4/13 weighing 74.4kg= 11st 10 and started 2 weeks refeeding weeks 29 & 30 finishing at 76.4kg = 12st Total loss: 49.4kg / 108.68lbs



    Started trouser size 24 (very tight and should really have been in 26's 22/10/2012)
    Size 22 Size 20 9/2/13 Size 18 ​ Size 16 Size 14

    Rub castor oil into ur scalp - it promotes hair growth. Do it at night wash hair in the morning

    I believe from what I've read that it only stops if you are on a VLCD for a very long time. I've not noticed any slowing as I would imagine body hair would stop too and I'm still getting waxed fortnightly and having to do my under arms and legs every few days, so I wouldn't worry too much.

    I first started noticing more hair coming out about weeks 11-13 but I didnt mind too much as it was from the back and wasnt noticeable... Unfortunately now my hair is falling from my front hairline and when I put all my hair up it is clearly noticeable but after thinking about it Im not coming off lipotrim. I only have 23/24 days left on TFR so Im not giving up now ha plus it will grow back anyway. The hair loss is just part of VLCD's there is nothing you can do to stop it, I have taken Perfectil multivitamins for skin,hair and nails my entire LT journey but I dont think it helped really.

    Thank you, Yes I am very determind to lose this weight once and for all!!! I have to come off LT at the beginning of Decemebr as my pharamacy are not doing it anymore so will have a month off (healthy eating OFC) then thinking off doing another VLCD for a month or two then losing the rest of the weight on my own. I feel the hair loss is nothing compared to the amount of weight you lose

    How good does it feel getting this far? That's a shame that your pharmacy aren't going to do it anymore but I'm sure you'll have just as much success with something else!

    How good does it feel getting this far? That's a shame that your pharmacy aren't going to do it anymore but I'm sure you'll have just as much success with something else!
    It does feel great and I'm so proud of myself I never thought I had the willpower to make it this far. Thanks, I was thinking of doing Exante starting mid January, I have been researching it and its 3 meal replacements a day like LT but has alot more flavour to chose from which is exciting

    Good on you! LT requires a hell of a lot of willpower, I don't think people realise how hard it can be sometimes. That sounds good, let us know how you get on!
