Hair Loss/Cancer > Cancer

Many people are treated for various cancers. If they receive any type of chemotherapy, they will most likely experience a hair loss due to the medication. This type of medication attacks cells - not only cancer cells but others as well. And of course it kills cells that help grow the hair.
Usually the hair starts falling out in about two weeks after the first dose of chemotherapy. Patients should protect their scalp against sun rays in the Summer or a cold air in the Winter. Wigs are one type of protection. Hats, caps, turbans etc. are another one.This hair loss is usually only temporary. It will start growing in after the chemotherapy treatment is all finished, when there is no residue of medication in the patient's body. Sometimes it starts growing in while on a weaker dose of chemo.
