• Hair still thin and falls out after chemo has been over for a while.

    Hair still thin and falls out after chemo has been over for a while.

    My hair is always falling out. Not all of it, but every time I brush, wash, or tug on it a little it comes out. It's on my pillow but not like it was when I had chemo. Do any of you have this issue long after it's grown back after chemo?

      Tell your doctor, so you can have some blood tests to figure it out. Thyroid problems can cause hair loss.

      My hair was a different texture when it grew back in. Also a slightly different color.
