One of the most upsetting side effects of cancer treatment is hair loss or thinning hair. Generally, chemotherapy is the type of cancer drug treatment most likely to cause hair loss however it does depend mostly on the type and dose of medication you receive.
Chemotherapy drugs are powerful medication that attack rapid growing cancer cells. Unfortunately, these drugs also attack other rapid growing cells in your body including those in your hair follicles. Hair usually begins falling out two to four weeks after you started your treatment and can be hugely distressing.
The good news is that in the majority of cases hair loss from chemotherapy is temporary. You can expect your hair to regrow three to six months after your treatment ends, depending on the dose and type of treatment you received. The stronger the dose the slightly longer it could take for your hair to regrow.
