Dry hair, dry skin

Ladies, I need good news stories, is there an end to the dry hair and skin?


It's been 15 months since my last chemo and almost 4 months since my last Herceptin, before treatment you could fry chips in my hair and on my face, it was so greasy. Now I no longer wash it, the front is frizzy and dry and I'm still wearing my wig as it just won't grow. I do have dry scalp issues as well, immediately after chemo finished I started experiencing almost psoriasis levels of flakey scalp. I appreciate I'm doing it no favours by still wearing the wig out shopping, I can see the front hair is breaking off where the wig cap sits. My skin is also dry, my finger ends are like dried out leather, constantly wrinkled like I've been in the bath too long!

Is there light at the end of the tunnel, or do I have to learn how to deal with Sahara levels of dryness?


Stay safe everyone x
