Being told you are going to lose your hair from your cancer treatment is usually the most traumatic part of a diagnosis. Your hair forms a huge part of your identity and when it starts to fall out it’s a very real reminder of what you are going through. It’s also the time when you are visibly different to look at and you become fearful of now being recognised as the person with cancer not only to friends and family but to strangers when you walk down the street. These are all common fears and it’s totally understandable to feel this way.
If you have been told by your oncologist to prepare to lose your hair, then you should expect for your hair to start thinning out within 2-3 weeks of your first chemotherapy treatment. Some ladies find it easier to pre-empt that moment by cutting their hair very short, or even shaving it off, just before that starts to happen and being prepared with a wig, headwear and scarves.
