twslandmark posted:
I had liver transplant 12/2010 and know i'm lossing hair ! Does anyone have any suggestions ?
MrsCora01 responded:
The hair loss is typically due to the initially higher doses of drugs (especially prograf). It slows and often the hair grows back. I know that at my transplant center they told me not to worry, that it would stop.

twicethecharm responded:
If you chemically straighten your hair or chemically color you hair I would talk with my hair dresser/stylist about stopping and the best way to transition your hair to it natural state. I stopped chemically straightening my hair that did the trick last time. I also cut off all the old hair with that in it. There are ways to do this over time that won't be such a shock to you in the mirror and you can be emotionally prepared to let it go.
