Regrowth of chemo hair

Each picture is one week. Not my head. Someone named Karin Stack who also had breast cancer.

Thanks for posting. Certainly i's quite descouraging for me. Makes it around 5 years -which I'll hardly survive- for a decent mane my usual lenght. As for texture and color, well - guess it'll go back to african dark and curly ( an universally recessive character). Am I right?
Will a chemo woman survive long enough as to recover her former hair and looks? Or is chemo a flight forward old age and death.

Hi Lola. My hair came back in as a pretty common chemo perm, but within 6 months, the new growth returned to my former textureless look. My color didn't change. And I am keeping my hair short. I found bald to be very freeing.

I don't know how long it will take you to recover your mane, but I hope the wait will not seem endless for you. Before cancer, I would have hoped that the time would have passed for you quickly, but I don't think that way anymore.

I now savor everyday, including the bad hair days.

Best to you!!
