Hair loss

I was hoping to hear from anyone who has experienced this side effect. I have very fine hair, a lot of it but very fine :) The problem is I have been loosing it by the handfull from about the third week into Lipotrim. I am very worried as I don't see any new hair growth in its place, I have no bald spots as yet but I can definetly notice the thinning. Don't want to put people off as I have lost quite a lot of weight and would like to continue but I don't want to be a thin bald person!

Lots of us have this, its a side effect of VLCDs. It does grow back when you stop and I have not heard of any ne who has gone bald! Dont worry :)

hey minime I have very thick hair and Ive noticed that my hair has thinned out a lot since been on LT. I think its a side effect many people get. As it has been said before, try not to worry think of it as your body rejuvinating itself. If you are still worried perhaps chat to the chemist and see if they can give you advice on it. xxx

Truthfully, I did LL in 2006. I finished in August and by October my hair was really thin (so bad that I called my hairdresser from Menorca when I was on holiday to make an appointment to get it chopped off).

I messed about on CD until June last year and it wasn't until after that it began to grow back. In fact I can only really say that it has fully recovered in the last 6 months. It probably would have recovered sooner other than my messing about.

The attached pictures show me 1) October 2006 passport photo with hair at the thinnest 2) Taken at the recent Birmingham meet mid April 2008.

But I must add that I know lots of people who haven't had any problems with hairloss at all :D
