Hair loss after cancer treatment
What medical help is available for hair loss?
How can I cope better with hair loss?
- Treat your hair gently when it is growing back. Use a soft brush and baby shampoo for the first 6 months or until there is a good growth of hair.
- It is best to wait for at least 6 months after treatment before colouring or perming your hair.
- Speak to your hairdresser before you colour your hair for the first time after treatment.
