      I actually miss my chemo curls! It was fun growing it out, though I didn't like the new color. I dyed it & had my hair stylist shape it up as it grew. I am 2 years out from chemo now and my hair has gone back to exactly how it was before. Just keep your hair shaped up, get some product & rock it like you mean it! Good like

      When my hair started coming back it was really thick - which is something I have never had. But before long it reverted back to being thin. Most people I have talked to say that their hair came back as normal pre-chemo. Good Luck

      I have been off chemo for 3 years; am on tamx.......my hair has not grown back as healthy as it was. I still have bald spots at the top which make any styling impossible. I've been taking hair and nail vitamins for a year with no luck. I am going to see a dermatologist.
