Hair colour change

Hi, finished FEC-T Chemo for Breast cancer 4 months ago and recovering well. I lost all my hair as cold caps weren’t offered. My hair returning well but appears to be a very different colour. I have always been auburn/red and it appears to be dark brown. I know it is very common to have hair colour change but just wondering if it’s likely to return to red eventually. Know I should just be grateful it’s not grey at my age (43) but finding it hard to get used to as I’ve never dyed it or been any other colour. Just wanting to know other peoples experience? Thank you
