The more you know about how your hair will react to chemotherapy, the better prepared you will be. Here are some things that our experts want you to know:
Myth: Your hair will fall out right after chemotherapy.
Fact: It usually takes 10-21 days after your first treatment for your hair to start falling out.
Myth: Your hair will come out in big clumps.
Fact: Your hair will gradually fall out as you brush and wash it like normal.
Myth: You should cut all of your hair off before starting chemotherapy treatment.
Fact: Shaving can lead to infections and ingrown hairs, so it's better to just cut your hair short prior to treatment.
Myth: Chemotherapy will always cause you to lose your eyebrows and eyelashes.
Fact: While some people lose their eyebrows and eyelashes, not everyone does. They may just become thinner instead.
Myth: After recovery, your hair grows back thicker and curlier than before.
Fact: In most cases, your hair will grow back exactly the same as it was prior to chemotherapy.
