One of the best ways to cope with hair loss and chemotherapy is to join a support group.

Chemotherapy can cause a variety of emotionally and physically distressing side effects, including hair loss. In order to cope with hair loss during treatment, it’s important to gain a fundamental understanding ahead of time to ease the pain and stress of chemotherapy. Learn more with Wigs and Hair Solutions.

Easing the Transition

In most cases, hair loss begins two weeks after the start of the first infusion. The hair may thin gradually, or it may fall out rapidly in clumps. Many patients experience hair loss throughout the face, including the eyebrows and eyelashes.

There are several ways to ease the transition during this time. For starters, many women prefer to cut their hair and sport a shorter style. Short hair creates the appearance of fuller locks, and it makes the hair loss less noticeable. Other women prefer to shave their hair completely, to rid themselves of the pain of slow, continuous loss. Visit a local wig stylist, and consider trying on a few options before your hair loss occurs.

Coping Emotionally

Just as we grieve the loss of a loved one, it’s okay to mourn the loss of your hair. In many cases, hair loss as a result of chemotherapy is temporary, but that does not make the coping process any easier.

Consider joining a support group to discuss your hair loss with women who understand what you’re going through. Be open with your friends and family about your hair loss, and don’t shy away from sharing your true feelings with those you love. Chemotherapy will disrupt your life, but there are aspects of the journey that you have complete control over. Talk to a wig stylist about options, and discover a wig or hair topper that makes you feel confident and beautiful!
