What chemotherapy treatment is normally used for secondary ovarian cancer?

Hello. My mum has recently been diagnosed with secondary ovarian cancer and she's now worried about going through chemotherapy again.. especially about hair loss. The first time she didn't lose her hair and chemotherapy was used more as a mop up session. The same has happened again where the cancer has all been removed through surgery and again she'll be having mop up chemo. Basically, I'm asking do you think she'll need to have a different chemotherapy or do they normally use the same treatment as last time? Last time the treatment worked really well and ended in 2016. Thank you for your support. Hope you are all doing well xx
