      I didn't notice this problem. I had 3 chemos, then 6 weeks of radiation. My hair should have started to grow during the 6 weeks, but I didn't notice any growth. Anyway, it's been 2.5 years since my last treatment and my hair is past my shoulders, thick and healthier than before. Maybe, it's fresh hair, without all the styling products.

      Mine did. I had chemo every 3 weeks, and it would grow back in between, them fall out after my next treatment.

      I would think normal for hair growth to happen during recovery time. . .especially if your chemo was spread out every 3 weeks. . .
