I finished chemo 4 weeks ago and cold capped thgroughout. Whilst I have kept most of my hair it is very fine, brittle and weak. Can anyone advise me of a strengthening shampoo and conditioner that may help

Many thanks

Hi I used dove shampoo and conditioner through out my chemo just had first trim yesterday :slight_smile: Hairdresser said my hair was nice and strong, it was quite curly growing back but now I have had a trim looks a bit like Julie Andrews lol finished chemo back in January. Good Luck xx

I was advised to check out the Trevor Sorbie publication on line - its called Mynewhair not sure if it will help but I daresay you may get some tips from it

Hi Mac,


I’ve been using a bar shampoo from Lush. I finished chemo October 2012. and if you want to see my hair diary to see where you could be in about a year’s time I’ve kept a hair diary here:
