Re: Chemo curls

Hi Nanna J

 

I loved my chemo curls as before I lost my hair I had always had straight hair. I had my curls for about 5 months. When I went to the hairdressers to get my hair tidied up my hairdresser told me the curls were only on the ends of my hair. So as she cut the curls dropped to the floor 😭 I got upset all over again as I had gotten used to my curls.

 

Take care xx

Re: Chemo curls

Thank you both for coming back to me about the Curls 🤞🤞 I will keep them a little longer by not having them cut just yet 🙈 - unfortunately my hair does not grow quickly so still looks good , may just have to have the sides shaped so it looks tidy. Thank you ladies xx💕💕

Re: Chemo curls

Hi Nanna J - I think I may be unusual then from what Annie says, as my chemo curls are still here (I finished chemo in March 2017). My hair was slightly curly before but nothing like it is now.  I think however it grows back we are all grateful that it has come back! I’ve kept mine a lot shorter than it was - time for you to experiment and see what happens?

Re: Chemo curls

Sorry, Nanna, they’re called chemo curls for a reason . Once you have your first cut they will begin to disappear . I just loved mine. They made me feel quite lively and certainly saved a lot of time on the hair drying front! Have kept my hair short as I can’t tolerate the feel on my niwbsensitive skin. Also, on Letrozole which has a thinning effect, so hairdresser keeps mine short and layered for a bit of lift and bounce. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. 😥

Chemo curls

Hi all

I am so pleased I have chemo curls as I have always had thick straight hair.  My hair is short and very uneven so I have decided to have my first hair cut in January (my birthday) keeping it short as my family think it suits me (personally I think my husband could not bare to see me lose it again like I did - it was the most traumatic experience for both of us) anyway my question is will I keep these curls ?xxx
