      My husbands did this for a short time (first two cycles)- his head looks like short baby hair. He had to shave a few times, but that has stopped again. Not sure why this happened.

      My hair never stopped growing. It was always really fine and kind of grey. But I shaved it constantly cause it would get itchy under the scarves and beanies I was wearing all day. I lost most of my eye brows and eye lashes, but every now and again I would notice a few new hairs, but they never lasted long. Once the majority of the hair was gone, I didnt notice it falling out, even with the regrowth. But like I said, I shaved it cause what was growing was not worth keeping it long. But my head was by no means smooth.

      After my hair fell out there was a fine "fuzz" left behind that would keep growing if I didn't shave it every few weeks. It wasn't healthy hair by any means, but it was hair. The only reason I shaved it was because it was itchy under my wig/baseball cap.
