Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How long will I wear my wig after chemotherapy?

A: We tell our clients to expect to wear their wig for 9-12 months. It is slow growing hair as the chemicals are still in the body. The products for the scalp and treatments we offer our clients help accelerate new hair growth while purifying and balancing the PH of the scalp while the hair grows in.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Will my hair grow back curly after chemotherapy?

A: Often the new hair has a soft uncut edge that curls. Once the hair matures and is trimmed the hair usually returns to its original state. It is impossible to know exactly how the hair will return; sometimes it may grow in with less density than before and sometimes even a different colour.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Will I lose my eyebrows and eyelashes during treatment?

A: The hair on your scalp will fall first. Eyebrows and eyelashes thin during treatment but not everyone will lose all of them. If you do lose your eyebrows one of our specialists is available to assist you with alternatives.
