Chemotherapy and Hair Loss

I want to share some information on chemotherapy and hair loss that I found recently.  I hope this will help my chemotherapy friends! 
If you have just started chemotherapy for breast cancer and are concerned about hair loss and what will happen, read on.
Breast Cancer chemotherapy drugs will typically cause hair loss. The average woman will not have any significant shedding until day 14.  Up until that time, you might notice your hair just doesn't feel like your hair anymore.  This is a result of the drugs being absorbed in to the follicles.
Of course some women look amazing without hair.  Still for most women losing  their hair its a very traumatic event.  So don't think you are the only one to be going crazy with the thought of being without hair.
The Process:
Day 14- your scalp may feel sore. That is due to the hair follicles no longer holding your hair in place.
Day 15-16- the shedding process will increase.  This means  that when you run your fingers through your hair, more than 20 hairs are coming out.  As the days progress your shedding will increase.
Day 16-17- the strands of hair are on your shoulders, clothes and beginning to end up in your soup.The time has come to breath deep and know that you are not that 1% that your Dr. told you about that might not lose their hair. 
Waiting until your hair actually shows visible signs of shedding is a good idea.  It seems to make the process of shaving it off easier!  Try to re-frame the experience.  See your hair loss as clear evidence that the treatment is working.  If you can see the effect on the outside, you can then imagine it working on the inside.
When it's time for you to think about getting a wig, give us a call (515-278-4880) and let us help you find the perfect "temporary" hair.  We are looking forward to meeting you!

Chemotherapy drugs are powerful medications that attack rapidly growing cancer cells. Unfortunately, these drugs also attack other rapidly growing cells in your body — including those in your hair roots.
