(sorry, hit 'done ' by mistake). By Christmas I felt ok without covering m head but it was still short. Almost a year later and I'm clipping it back on the side and can make tiny pigtails if I want. Best wishes to you
I also took biotin (available at a local pharmacy) and used biotin shampoo. Not sure if it helped, but I think it did. I am six months from finishing chemo and I only have a few inches. It's a full head of hair but not even close to the long-ish hair I lost. I think it takes a long time to get back to what you had, but soon enough you will have enough hair!
I had 4tx of A/C and 12tx of Taxol. On my 8th treatment of Taxol i started to notice my hair growing...hair is growing back baby fine, straight, and GREY! Lol! Im starting to see some of my natural color (blk) coming in. My "normal"
Mine took a month to see growth , now 2 1/2 months later I have a fuzzy head "yay" and hair in other lower regions that I wish didnt grow back ! Haha.. I took Biotin vitamins thru the whole process , u might look into taking supplements to help and scalp massage to stimulate circulation . Take care , Celien
