    Hair loss with Ibrance - continue to color hair??

    I am on the targeted therapy for Stage IV breast cancer, mets to bone. This may be a frivolous question, but I am experiencing severe thinning of my hair. After coloring my hair for many years, I was wondering if anyone has experience with using a more milder hair color that might work and not damage the little bit I have left? Or should I just forget coloring hair at all?

      If you want top try a wig, I recommend Toni Bratton wigs on QVC. She also has hairpieces and extensions, and the wigs come in two sizes.

      I’m not on Ibrance, the Aromatase Inhibitor is thinning mine. Hats and wigs for me now.

      One time I had seborrheic keratosis (sore) at my hairline, and all I had to do was use a stinky shampoo (from a dermatologist) 2-3 times to get it well.
