Chemotherapy and Hair Loss: What to expect during treatment

Find out what to expect when it comes to chemotherapy and hair loss by reading our series of hair blogs from the team at Simone Thomas hair loss clinic and hairdressers in Bournemouth and Wokingham. Over the coming weeks we will be publishing a series of blogs which we hope you will find informative. Plan to use your energy staying as healthy as possible rather than worrying about how you look. Here at Simone Thomas hair loss clinic and hairdressers, we can help you choose a wig or scarf you may want to use whilst going through treatment – feel free to book in a free wig or hair loss consultation with one of our team of Hair Loss Specialists.

You might not think about how important your hair is until you face losing it. And if you have cancer and are about to undergo chemotherapy, the chance of hair loss is very real. Both men and women report chemotherapy hair loss as one of the side effects they fear most after being diagnosed with cancer.

Whether or not you experience hair loss from your chemotherapy treatment depends mostly on the type and dose of medication that you receive. But whether you can maintain a healthy body image after hair loss depends a lot on your attitude and the support of your friends and family. Here at Simone Thomas hair loss clinic in Bournemouth and Reading you can visit with a friend or family member where you can discuss the options you have available in a friendly and relaxed environment with people who understand and have experience of what you are going through. You can try on a wide variety of synthetic wigs, human hair wigs and scarves to help you decide how you are going to deal with the very real trauma of losing your hair during your chemotherapy treatment.
