Hair Growth After Chemotherapy Completed

Hair Growth After Chemotherapy Completed

My 19 year old daughter has Hodgkin's Lymphoma (subtype Nodular sclerosis Hodgkin lymphoma) and being treated with chemotherapy - AVBD regimen. She is just completing cycle 4 and has 2 more cycles to go. A major trauma for her has been the loss of her hair. It represents the whole cruelty and randomness of this disease and the absolute disruption of her life. A big question for her is what will her hair look like after it grows back.

Her hair will come back. In our cases, my wife's hair was fuller, softer, wavy. In my case it was just as full, curly. It a tually started coming back before I finished Chemo.

My hair seems to be thicker but not that longer yet. My last Chemo was 12/3/19. I still wear hats that are cute and get many compliments

I lost all my blonde gently wavy hair. It is growing back now darker, still wavy, same texture, same thickness. I can always highlight it for awhile until the sun naturally lightens it again.

I will assume that your hair will come back as everyone else I have talked to. First of all my wife was upset about loosing her hair when she was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer. Her hair came back just as thick as before, & soft as a baby's hair. She is a 11 year survivor. My hair did the same thing. Came back with real curly, full head of hair. I have been dealing with this for 7 years. Don't get alarmed, I had a minor setback. I have been in remission for about 3 years. All looks good & making plans to remove port. Little Lady, quit worrying about that that you have no control over. There is a higher power that is looking after you. He has something planned for you.

My hair was grey and white and straight. It is growing in grey and white and wavy. It is a little less thicker on top than it was, but I think that is a family trait and has nothing to do with my chemo. I like the wave that I have now.
