chemo and hair loss

It seems you are suffering from Cancer and you take chemo.. Best way to reduce hair loss during chemo is wear tight bands or ice caps..While these techniques may reduce hair loss by reducing blood flow to the scalp and limiting chemotherapy exposure to hair follicles

Hair loss is common during and after Chemo therapy of BC.. Wig is the another best option to hide this baldness..

Hey Geo just so you know I got a haircut 2 days before my hair started falling out. Maybe we shocked it into falling out. Ha ha It was three weeks into my first round of chemo when it started falling out.

My problem was that my hair fell out naturally due to pre-mature balding way before cancer hit me.
When I had my chemo, not one hair fell out. My doctor said my head was confused.

However, my hair does grow different then before. I still have the chome dome on top, but the sides and the back is darker, softer, and curly.

For the first time in 31 years, I have shoulder length curly hair (I was in the military for 20 years out of high school so no long hair then)

Hi Joe, Thanks for posting the link, I·m really thick on computer stuff, but hope someone gets some help on this . At least the people doing the headcover products have some expererience themselves on the problems chemo patients have.

funny this topic came up at this time...
Here's how my luck goes. I was feeling great on wednesday. I went and got a hair cut. First one since before surgury. Thursday, the next day all my hair fell out! 13 days since my first chemo treatment!
