    I got mine buzz cut when it started falling out because I'd rather be bald than have sparse hair. I got some cute scarves and hats, some of which I still wear. I got a wig too, but it was too weird for me. Maybe if I had gotten an expensive wig it would have been better. Afterwards,, when my hair started growing out, and got to about 3/4 of an inch, I got a haircut and then it looked intentional, rather than like chemo hair. It was an interesting experience being bald! Very easy hair styling. Easy to go swimming.

    I started with long hair and went to a shorter cut when I started losing it. I finally just shaved my whole head when I got tired of finding hair everywhere. It’s growing out thicker and curly now. I have to say so much easier buzzing it. Oh and like BridgetO I bought a couple of wigs but never could get myself to wear them.

    Hi Joy Marie, One of my fellow LC pals had something similar happen to her. She went to Target to purchase a hair buzzer thing & shaved her whole head so it would grow back evenly. My Mom had Carboplatin for endometrial cancer- same thing happened to her & the rest of her hair fell out after treatment four. You might want to check with the treatment team pharmacist (the onc won’t usually know) to see what supplements your Mom could benefit from that can stimulate hair growth (like biotin & other B vitamins) when she finishes chemo. Good news in that I hear the pixie cut is back in vogue. Michelle

    Hi Michelle - I've decided to keep it for now. When I can go 6 months between scans, I'll get it removed. But I'm still on the 90 day protocol and finding a vein for CT contrast is no picnic.
