    Side Effects (Hair loss (alopecia)): Three weeks after chemo started I was in a wig shop preparing for when my hair would begin falling out; as I was trying on wigs, the stylist was combing my hair and showed me that my hair was already beginning to fall out...I cried, she buzzed it all off, and chose a wig which was really similar to the way my hair was styled before. She took so much time and care with styling and cutting it to look the way I had my own hair...I am very glad that I went into the shop before I actually lost all my hair so that she could see how I looked normally. Another idea is to take several pictures of your hair before you lose it if you really want to just look like yourself; that way, you can show them to the wig stylist and they can help you select and style a wig very close to your look.
