Re: How fast does hair grow after chemotherapy

You'll get some short regrowth pretty quickly, but it takes about six months (or more, if you had very long hair) for it to get totally back to normal. But, if I recall correctly, I had enough hair after about six-eight weeks so that I could stop wearing scarves and hats.

Re: How fast does hair grow after chemotherapy

I feel like I'll have to do Chemo forever.
Hairless I am, because hair began falling in my food.
Hair in carrots was discusting.

So I had a relative shave it all off.
Genetically I was a very hairy lady with thick but unrully hair that always grew very quickly.
Hopefully I look foreward to being a hairly lady agian someday.

I've discovered BALD at night is cold at night.
I sleep in a wonderful warm hair replaceing hat!
