Re: Hair loss

❤️I thought of it as going into chrysalis during chemo then emerging out like butterfly 🦋 after, let the sun (rads) if you are having them warm your wings that have been tucked up during chemo, then flutter by flutter and step by step regain you ❤️ 💕💕Shi xx

Re: Hair loss

Ah bless you, I’m sure you’re not ugly.  I am waiting to start chemotherapy and my worse fears are loosing my hair and eyebrows, and not colouring my hair.  Thanks for the recommendation, I’ll take a look at the.

 

Be kind to yourself and take care xx

Hair loss

I have had two bouts of chemo with surgery in between. The first chemo was FEC and although I used cold cap, I did lose my hair

The second chemo is TC and my hair is growing really well but has come through completely colourless, so I decided to do some research to find a suitable colouring product. 

I came across Daniel Field's range and wish I had found them earlier as they include a course which they state is safe to use during chemo, but also.includes products which help prevent chemo hair loss.

I thought I would share, as losing my hair was one of the worst side effects for me - I felt that I could deal with the aches and pains, nausea, sore mouth etc but I felt really ugly every time I saw a reflection of myself.
