When I was just on the herceptin injections my hair did grow back - very slowly at first then suddenly thicker/coarser and with a mind of it’s own completely!


Two years on and my hair condition is back to pre-chemo days - having always had longer hair, I have now decided to keep it short - I personally prefer it!


Yes it does. I used a cold cap and kept lots of hair but it thinned. It was back to normal very quickly after chemo.
