Losing your Hair

Hair loss is likely to occur 2-3 weeks after you start your chemotherapy treatment. This can happen more quickly depending on the treatment level you are having.

You may experience your scalp becoming tender as the hair gradually falls out. You may also notice more hair on you pillow in the mornings and more hair gathering on your hairbrush. When this begins you may consider removing the hair at the salon.

Hair Grows Back

Hair grows back very fine at first then becomes stronger and thicker as times goes on. There maybe a number of differences between your new hair and the hair you had previous to commencing treatment however in most cases your hair will revert over time back to its pre-treatment condition and natural style. The good news is that you may have a full head of hair in just 3-6 months after your treatment.

Colouring Your New Hair

As your hair grows back, you may notice a difference in colour from your original colour. Current guidelines suggest waiting 6 months post treatment before permanently colouring your hair.

However, if you want to colour your new hair, you can use a semi-permanent colour which does NOT contain any ammonia or peroxide, ask one of our stylist about the options available in salon.

You must have the required sensitivity patch test 48 hours prior to your colour application to make sure you do not have any reaction to the product.
