  • Best way in my book, you go Missus - all the best for the rest of your treatment xxx

  • I had my hairdresser shave mine down to a No1 cut once tufts started to fall out on 14th day of first chemotherapy session. Then what fell out after that, until I went completely shiny bald, was fine and small in length & in the main, unnoticeable. One point of note though, I continued to shave my head (No cutter and very close) on a regular basis about every 2 weeks, when my hair started to grow again at the end of chemotherapy. I am one of the few people I know that escaped "curly" hair on completion of treatment. Admittedly, it did have a slight wave but looked grand and full of body and I continued to shave it with a longer cutting trimmer each time until it returned completely back to 'normal' about a year after chemo ended. A friend of mine advised this was a good idea because she grew up in one of the Scandinavian countries (can't remember which one) but in her country of birth, they shave the heads of all their babies several times to encourage thick, straight, strong growth. I do not know whether this is the reason I had non curly hair but I was very grateful for the hair that I did 'allow' to grow later on. Good Luck! x
