I lost my hair 2008 of January into my 2nd week, two days before I got hit again. I went to a class look good feel better, and one of the women worked at a hair salon. She set it up for me to come to her shop and she would buzz my hair off and she did a good job.When I left her shop I had put on a wig. I remember not liking the cool feeling all over my head and spent along time not know what I could do different.So my daughter went to sallys and purchased me these short nylon doo rags and different colors. That made my head feel good and I could put me a hat over the doo rags actually they matched my hat.
It will definitely make you a stronger person I use to say I'm going to be like Yule Brinner he shaved his hair off for a movie and it never grew back. But to give you a positive note as soon as your chemo is through your hair will start coming out everywhere,just be patient because you are going to have brand new hair,that all your problems you might of had with your hair before is gone.I have always had real fine hair and it grows one inch every 4 months, but even though it is slow and fine and thin,my hair salon is purchasing Bosley shampoo,conditioner and two other bottles to help stimulate the scalp and help your hair grow. My hair due to it being very slow to grow it's always had a problem.but my hair all said and done looked great when it came back.So because you are walking that walk like I did in 2008 you will be through before you know it and you will look back and say I'm a survivor of xxxx amount of years and your hair is going to be wonderful
