While Going Through Chemotherapy, When Should I Expect My Hair to Start Falling Out and When Should I Expect to Start Needing a Chemotherapy Wig?
Bloomsbury of London offer a unique service for chemotherapy patients, in that when hair falls out, those undergoing such treatment are able to make a wig using their own hair. However, timing when hair falls out is important as most people going through chemotherapy would want their wig to be made in time – so when do you expect to notice hair loss?
While chemotherapy is a long process, most of the time it is pretty early when hair falls out. Usually, hair will start to fall one to three weeks after treatment begins, however, everyone is different, and when hair falls out it could be in clumps or it could be a few strands.
Most people notice the side effects when hair falls out in the hair brush or in the drain of the shower, and it isn't unusual for the scalp to be more sensitive either.
Unfortunately, when hair falls out as a result of chemotherapy it usually continues throughout treatment and for a few weeks afterwards. It is for this reason that chemotherapy wigs are so important to Bloomsbury of London.
