HAIR LOSS FROM
Understanding the reasons why you may lose your hair and finding ways to cope emotionally and physically ahead of time can help you feel more in control.
Chemotherapy drugs are designed to kill rapidly growing cells, like those in our hair follicles. Hair loss does not occur with all chemotherapy medications and people respond differently to treatments. You may experience complete hair loss, hair thinning, or may not notice any hair loss at all.
The good news is that hair loss from chemotherapy is usually temporary. Once your chemotherapy treatment stops, your hair will probably grow back to normal within three to ten months.
“I wasn't upset or scared at the thought of chemotherapy, I was upset and scared at the thought of losing my hair and my little boy seeing it.” Louise, Hair Solved Manchester Client.
Louise lost all her hair over three months. "I had to have the system taped on to hold it in place and needed to visit Hair Solved more frequently, but they really helped my confidence."
Louise's hair has now almost fully recovered and she only uses a partial system to give her the extra length and volume she loves.Louise's Story
