Re: Hair growth

I had my last chemo on May 23rd and now 3 months into Anastrazole. My hair is quite thick, but short, which is how I like it.  But don't like the moustache and wispy beardy stuff under my chin!!

Re: Hair growth

I finished chemo in March 2013 (but still continuing with Herceptin).   My hair is short but I love it.  Photos of my hair regrowth and hair colouring "experiments" can be found on my blog

Re: Hair growth

I finished chemo in June then got radiotherapy.  My hair is coming in but is still very short.  I have ditched the scarfs and everyone says I am rocking the JessieJ look!! It grew in patchy and fluffy so I shaved it off 3 times.  It grew in pure white but now getting a bit of brown coming through (I am 51).  I think it will take ages to get too any decent length.

Hi Jenny

 

I finished chemo in April 2011 and my hair is now shoulder length. I have had it cut loads of times as well. To encourage growth try Lee Stafford hair growth shampoo. And try not to stress too much.

 

Lotsa love

Re: Hair growth

My last chemo was mid May...hair has grown bak all different lengths - grey hairs about 2cm, darker hairs about 1cm!!! Definitely not enough to get rid of the headscarf yet (I don't have the sort of "elfin" face that can carry off a super-short style...

 

Pretty much thinking along the lines of  "any hair is good hair..."

Hair growth

Hi

I finished chemo 29th april and wonder how much my hair should have grown it seems very slow and ive noticed my eyebrows are thinning again. I suppose i have half an inch of fine hair on my head but not enough to ditch the wig.
