Growth of Hair after Chemotherapy


Question: “I finished my chemotherapy four weeks ago and I am beginning to see my hair growing back. Is it true that my hair could change? I heard that sometimes hair color and texture are effected by chemotherapy.”

Answer: “Most women who undergo chemotherapy have hair loss during the treatment, and their hair is pushed into its telogen cycle which usually lasts 3-8 months after the chemotherapy. When the hair comes back, it may not return to its full density. With more information, what kind of chemotherapy you underwent and the timeline of your recovery, I may be able to give you some more specific information.”
