Chemo Hair Loss – The Effects of Treatment

Cancer-related hair Loss is a well-known side effect for treatments, medications and surgeries. Treatments such as chemotherapy have a higher chance of causing hair loss in individuals. During chemotherapy all living cells come in contact with the drugs and hair will go into a dormancy to protect itself. During the dormant phase hair does not receive the proper protein and nutrients to thrive, as a result hair will stay in this stage until treatment is finished.


If a patient has a genetic predisposition to female or male pattern baldness, their hair will grow back in the form of the predestined hair loss. The first signs that you may have early stages of hair loss after chemo is to notice if hair in the vertex and crown is still thin one year post-op, or the temple region hasn’t grown in. Typically after 12 months these areas of thinning are usually a sign of genetic hair loss.

Learn about slow hair growth after chemotherapy and oncology-friendly hair treatments. Treatments available nationwide. Programs include a tracking plan for up to 1 year to ensure your hair growth success.
