If you have been diagnosed with cancer and are undergoing chemotherapy, the chance of hair loss is very real. At Z Studio, we understand how difficult it can be to maintain a healthy self-image after hair loss and have experience helping patients through the journey.
You’ve just been diagnosed. Now what?
If you are expecting chemotherapy treatments, call us. We’ll develop an advanced plan to prepare your hair and scalp, including the first cut before treatment.
What should you expect to happen to your hair during your chemotherapy treatments?
- Hair loss may begin within three weeks of starting treatment, depending on the type of chemotherapy you undergo.
- Not everyone experiences hair loss; some experience various levels of thinning.
- Your scalp may feel tender during treatments.
- Most of the time, the hair loss is temporary.
Undergoing chemotherapy and beginning to see re-growth?
When hair begins to grow again, it may be a different shade or texture. It may be gray until the cells that control the pigment in your hair begin functioning again. It may be curlier than it was before and can be difficult to manage and “train” to a look and style you like. We’ll develop an individualized plan to give you new styles and specialized restorative treatments during the many different stages of re-growth.
There’s no reason to be embarrassed by hair loss and re-growth. Whether you’re a fighter, survivor or supporter, at Z Studio, we will help you feel great about the way you look with caring professional stylists to help you Fight with Style!
