Wow Jellytot, your blog is amazing-thanks for sharing. My hair does sem to be getting thicker albeit slowly. Its also very grey now as I always had it coloured before. My eyebrows are almost non existent but with a bit of make up, you would never know Smiley Happy Thanks again x

Re: Hair growth after chemo

Hi,

 

Loved the Hair Diary Jellytot, your hair looks fantastic. I finished chemo sept 12 and have had 2 hair cuts. It is not as long but I am on herceptin so I think that hinders growth a little. I think the key thing with the growth is to be as gentle as possible with it as mine is very dry. I recommend moroccon oil. Also when long enough to visit a salon I have a proffessional treatment, Tony & Guy do a Kerastase one and it made my hair feel in great condition.

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: http://thelittlestjojo.blogspot.co.uk/2013/07/hair-diary.html

 

Love Jelly x
