Re: How to style new hair

Thanks! Got some creamy paste in the end, and attempting a side parting/comb over. I just need to do something to make it look nice as everything thinks i have cut my hair off deliberately.

Re: How to style new hair

Hi Leanne

I didn't lose all my hair due to cold cap but it went so VERY thin from my usual thick long straight hair that I cut it really short anyway as you could see patches of scalp

I went into Boots and bought loads of mini travel putty/ paste pots and they were all different! I found the best ones were ones that looked like cream rather than the greyer ones which left my hair crunchy and in clumps!

11 months on I have got very thick hair again but I'm keeping it short for the moment as it is CURLY!!!!!!

I use VO5 texture Rework putty which is white and put it on newly washed hair that has air dried. It keeps hair looking shiny and soft but does help keep a style!! From what I have read it's good to do as little as possible for a few months after chemo.

(sorry, that reads like some silly advert !)

all the best

How to style new hair

I've finally got enough hair to go out wigless, but am at a loss as to how to make it look good ... I've found this blog post https://lacunaloft.org/post-chemo-hair-growth-styling-tips/ and am thinking hair paste is the way forward at this length.  Any recommendations?  Is hair paste and hair putty the same thing?!  I have always had really easy long hair and literally have no idea what to do with this new stuff!
