You’re Not Alone!
With recent advances in technology, women now have a variety of choices to help make themselves look and feel better during treatment.
One of the most important decisions about your hair restoration process is making sure that you are informed of all the different viable options. We care for your cause and needs. Our purpose is to make you worry free about the things that are in your control. Visit us before your hair loss begins.
Most women do not experience hair loss until after their second chemotherapy treatment, but some will start to lose their hair as soon as seven days after the first treatment. Hair loss occurs because hair follicles are weakened by chemotherapy, causing hair to fall out at a much faster rate than normal. Some women also lose their eyelashes and eyebrows during chemotherapy.
We strongly recommend you visit us before you begin your chemotherapy treatment so that our professional stylist can become familiar with your present hairstyle and color. We also recommend that a hair sample of your hair be taken for future reference. Our goal is to recreate your natural hairstyle.
Cutting your hair short before you start chemotherapy will make losing your hair less traumatic, and will help in your transition back to your natural growing hair, once the treatment is over.
