Chemotherapy consists of the administration of drugs that destroy rapidly reproducing cancer cells. Cancer cells are some of the most rapidly reproducing cells in the body but other normal cells (such as hair follicles) which contribute to the formulation of hair shaft and nails are also rapidly reproducing. Unfortunately chemotherapy preferentially destroy cancer cells but also affects normal cells and hair follicles too. This causes hair loss also known as anagen effluvium type of alopecia. Not all chemo therapy drugs cause hair loss, some times hair loss is so slight and hardly noticeable. in other cases there may be temporary, partial or complete baldness. The amount of the hair loss depends on the drug, dosage and prakruti (basic nature) of the individual patient.
How and when hair loss and regrowth occurs in chemotherapy ?
Hair loss usually starts within a few weeks after starting chemotherapy, although it can start within a few days. Regrowth may take 6-12 months but returning hair may be different than what is lost. There are chances of white hairs, different colour hairs, poor texture, thinning of the hair or permanent loss in some cases.
