In recognition of October being Breast Cancer Awareness month we wanted to dedicate a blog article specific to cancer treatment and hair loss.
For many people, the thought of losing their hair isn’t something they really think twice about. In fact, until you get sick, learn you have a devastating disease like cancer, and then start taking medications called chemotherapy that can destroy your hair and leave you with very little energy, you won’t believe you’ll lose your hair. If you or a loved one is facing the need for this type of life saving chemotherapy, it’s always important for you to take that step forward and get the care you need. But, it also is helpful to understand what happens to your hair in the process.
