Hair and Chemo


Recommended Posts

Everyone is different and I also believe that time has alot to do with it too.

My dad's hair went from dark brown to a salt and pepper color- went from very straight to very curly.

There are other folks who have had differences in their hair and as more time has passed it "goes back" to normal.

I am new to the site - but not to hair - been a hairdresser for 40 years..

Most peoples' hair comes back in after chemo ( there are always exceptions )

A lot of the curl after the return, we call, chemo curl. It tends to go away ...your hair color and texture can change..

I guess by now you know that it can do just about anything.. some peoples' hair comes back exactly as it was before, others change completely.

I will be experiencing this same thing very shortly.. I'm hoping mine comes back with no grey and LOTS of curl.

Good luck
