Hi. I just finished my chemo 2 weeks ago. I too cold capped through my 3 Months  of chemo. I had chemo every week for 1 hour. With Herceptin every 3 weeks. I totallt kept my hair. Every single strand. Not one single hair loss. I cannot believ it either. I didn’t even feel tired or sick. The same compete person. I am the luckiest person ever.  I was told I would loose my hair and have all the usual symptoms. Tiredness. Vomiting. Etc. Nothing/!!! 

I have had standard Taxol.  So I don’t know why. I question the oncologist every 3 weeks when I see him


i have the same question as you.  I would like to have my hair hi lighted I usually have bleach with golden colour  too mixed together. Oh by the way. My hair is in fantastic condition,  thick healthy. So I am thinking of going ahead soon to get it highlights done.  Or. Are the roots too fragile. It certainly doesn’t look or feel fragile

I think they usually say 6 months after chemo which I think in normal cercumstamces probably is true. But maybe I can get it done sooner .?

thankyou anyone to reply




Why not? Highlighting done in foils doesn’t really touch the roots. Why not try a few strands around the front of your face for a sunkissed look and if no perceptible damage go for the whole head or a T section of highlights to start with. X
