An unfortunate part of chemotherapy is the accompanying hair loss. However, through the use of wigs, you don’t have to worry about hair loss through your journey to being healthy again. The day when you are done chemotherapy treatments is a wonderful day to celebrate for many important reasons! After initial celebrations, one may wonder when their own hair may finally begin to regrow after chemotherapy hair loss.
Hair regrowth after chemotherapy
This does depend on the person, however a general guideline is that 2-4 weeks after your last chemotherapy treatment, you will likely see some fuzz on the scalp. Many people see about a full inch of hair all over two months after their chemotherapy treatment.
Hair may regrow quicker or slower depending on a person. You may be excited to finally be finished with your chemotherapy treatments, but make sure to get plenty of rest and eat a well-balanced diet. Helping your body recover will also help your hair regrow.
Your hair after chemotherapy
New hair growth will, in most cases, be the same as it was prior to chemotherapy. In some cases, your hair may be a different texture than it was previous, or even a bit thicker or thinner. Some people who had fine, straight hair prior to chemotherapy may find their new growth to be thicker with a body wave. It all depends on the person, but just remember—you have new, healthy growth of hair that will be long enough to be styled in no time!
For those who aren’t quite to the regrowth stage yet, remember, wigs are always a wonderful solution for chemotherapy hair loss.
