Hair loss after bariatric surgery can be instigated by nutritional and non-nutritional causes while the most common type of hair loss after bariatric surgery is called telogen effiuvium (TE). This condition occurs when there is a reduction in the number of hair follicles of growing hair hence, there will essentially be more dormant/dying hair follicles compared to those in the anagen phase (active growing follicles). TE is not well defined due to very little research, but there are certain conditions that can put people at risk for hair loss including, major surgery, acute weight loss, crash dieting, low protein intake, iron or zinc deficiency and hormonal disruption. Patients who have had bariatric surgery will fall into these “at risk” categories because after bariatric surgery patients will experience acute, rapid weight loss and will also be at risk for vitamin and mineral deficiencies.
Keratin is a mixture of fibrous proteins that is essential for cell structure, which make up the outer layer of skin and is a major component of hair and nails. The development of this newly patented process makes the keratin molecule more bio-available for absorption.

- Accelerates hair growth

Key Vitamins and Minerals for Healthy Hair, Skin, and Nails
Bariatric surgery can put patients at risk for developing vitamin and mineral deficiencies including biotin, iron and zinc, consequently if you are deficient it can cause poor hair, skin and nail health and that’s where Bari Life’s Hair, Skin & Nail Supplement is here to help.
Biotin is essential to build and keep healthy fats in the skin, which keeps the skin moist and healthy, even more, biotin is key in fat and sugar metabolism and can also help to maintain blood sugar levels. It also helps to produce keratin, collagen and elastin.
Vitamin C is also essential for building connective tissues like skin, tendons, joint cartilage and bone and zinc is important for growth, protein synthesis, antioxidant mechanisms and wound healing.
Zinc is an essential mineral that is required in many processes throughout the body. Zinc plays an important structural role in connective tissue during collagen formation. A lack of zinc can increase a skin cell’s exposure to free radicals and impair its function.
Bari Life’s Hair, Skin & Nails Supplement is designed to work in conjunction with Bari Life Bariatric Multivitamin Tablets and Bari Life Multivitamin Powders for a complete vitamin regimen helping to reduce the risks of vitamin deficiencies and their side effects including protecting the health of hair, skin and nails.
