i am looking for advice desperatly,
since have surgery 6 weeks ago my hair is falling out by the handfull:eek:, when i wash it it is worse so i have tsarted washing it only 3 times a week and have stoped useing streighteners and hair products,
i just wash and condition, once a week i use an intensive conditioner and wrap my hair in a warm towel for 10 minutes.

is there anything else i can do to help, my gp said it is due to stress as ive had problems recovering from the op:cry:

No lotions and potions will help,just leave it alone as much as you can,and try to focus on your recovery and relaxing :hug:

I'm sorry Tracey but i wouldn't recommend tying it up if you can avoid it.

As the follicle is in such a fragile state,it could result in a condition called tension allapeacha.

This is caused by pulling/tying up the hair,usually to the extreme,but i this case i would avoid it.

I would say get a great mousse and wear your hair curly/wavy for a while,this will make it appear fuller,as well as allowing it to rest

Cos you are avoiding ironing it you will se an improvement in the condition also

Hth's :hug:

tbh I would take sometime out for yourself, it was obviously a traumatic experience for you and the body reacts in different ways. No pills or potions will work just relaxation and let your body heal itself...it will but it takes abit of time. A big hug for you:hug:Teresa
