    I completed therapy in September. My hair is growing back so slowly. I'm wondering if any of the hair growth products help?

      After my third chemo session last year for Triple Negative Cancer, almost all my hair fell out in clumps over a 3-day period. A friend sent me "Brian Joseph's Formula 1 Shampoo Formulated for Chemotherapy-Radiation.Hair.Loss" and I started using it immediately. Radiation followed the chemo, and within several months of completion, my hair started growing back. Only, my formerly thick coarse straight hair has now been replaced by soft gentle curls. Sure hope they last awhile. (People think I've had a perm.)

      Sorry, I'm behind again. Had husband in rehab after cracked pelvis. I'm in agreement. I've lost my hair 3 times & now it is very thin. Each time has been different as we all are different. I've quit worrying about it. I'm still here & everyone likes the triangle scarves I make that match my outfits.

      Who needs hair when there is so many wigs other. I can be whatever color I want to be and being blonde does not make me dumb or I don't have more fun.Get my wigs from the cancer center for free. Take some and leave some

      For crochet or knitting patterns join Ravelry. There are lots of patterns for chemo hats.

      I personally didn't like knitted or crocheted hats when I was bald. I chose pretty cotton scarves instead. I didn't like how the hats felt against my tender skin.

      I agree w/clinda. The crocheted ones seemed to be bulky. I did find a soft knit skull cap at a department store. I'm no fashion person so I just made me some from my stash of yard goods. I used an old neckerchief as a patter then used a decorative stitch to edge it or some left over trim. I gave them all away after 8 years of no recurrence. Now, I'm making some new ones as I've developed MBC. I'm not parting with these as I've lost my hair twice since 2016.
