The brighter side of losing hair is that you can sport a brand new hair style when it grows back!
Hair loss happens during chemotherapy and is the most distressing aspect of treatment for a majority of patients. I have seen patients dropping out of treatment because of hair loss.
Hair loss is temporary. Once chemotherapy is complete hair grows back and most often I find that it grows back better than what it used to be. Most conservative middle aged and elderly south Indian women will not usually venture into styling their hair, but after treatment a lot of them will keep it short, curly and they look wonderful. In fact, they look years younger and prettier after treatment!
Hair loss usually starts around the beginning of the second cycle and it starts to grow after completion of chemotherapy.
