Hair loss during Taxol

October 31, 2018 - 00:00

Probably one of the most googled questions for someone on chemo, what will happen to my hair.

Well I just finished 12 sessions of weekly Taxol and my hair has thinned significantly. It started around start of week 6 and continued for couple weeks. It has slow down now as very little hair left. I would guess I have lost 70% volume but still have coverage with what I have. So I started wearing a wide hair band to camoflage it somewhat....

Hi Runnergirl, Hair loss from cancer treatment is usually temporary. Once the course of treatment is over, your hair will usually grow again within a short space of time.
