finished Jan 21 and it covers my head, started growing down there first. The hair on my head didn't start to get jealous and join in on the fun until about Day 15-16.Diane, mine was on about day 14. He could shave my head.I lost my hair on the 13th day after 1st treatment of Cytoxan/Taxotere. Many men shave their heads, while women often prepare by cutting their hair short and purchasing wigs while they still feel well. To everything there is a season ...I had my first cytoxan-taxotere treatment last week and tomorrow will be my second treatment. The extent and rate of hair loss depends on what type of chemotherapy a patient is administered, and what dosage. Wig at work, turban otherwise. How much is the settlement in the Taxotere lawsuit? There is still time for join in this Taxotere lawsuit, but there are statutes of limitations that apply. Diane, mine was on about day 14. Wishing all of you ladies the best. It took several more weeks for most of the stubble to come out, helped gently with a lint roller and masking tape.My third infusion was a week ago. The wigs I tried on did feel like a rug, as you say, and just weren't "me." This too will pass.....I had the same time frame as Traci, when it started on my head I had it buzzed. At least it was summer time so I never had to shave, that was nice........on the UPSIDE, once chemo was over in August my hair started to appear as stubble about 4 weeks Jan of this year I went wig was short but it was hair! Most of them are typical for drugs in this class, such as nausea, vomiting and temporary alopecia (hair loss). I knew that I wasn't looking forward to it but it was the absolute worst part of treatments for me. I might make an appointment with a pair of scissors, because I don't think I can handle a razor on my head just yet.Best wishes to all of you ladies starting the hairfree part of your journey!I haven't been upset about wearing hats and scarves. I read where so many have hair growing back that is thicker, darker, curlier. :-)I'm getting a few strands in my hands tonight, and it's day 13.....looks like my hair days are numbered. My other hair has thinned but not come out completely.Thank you every one for the replies. Take care and let us know how you are doing.I had my head shaved down to about 3 millimeters and I thought the nubs would fall out by now. I'm at day 11 "post first chemo"....and the wig is sitting on it's stand waiting for days 14-16. I made an appointment with the place I bought my wig to have my hair shaved off tomorrow. Do not use this information to diagnose or treat a health problem or disease without consulting with a qualified healthcare provider. But some studies have linked the drug to long-term hair loss. Looking forward to the potential curly hair in six months.I had my first T/C chemo 12 days ago and when I took a shower tonight I had clumps of long hair coming out as I brushed it :(I gotten my hair cut VERY short on day 13 ... thinking it would come out gradually. I wear one as a headband over another and so forth, always with big earrings. Good luck!As the others have mentioned, you can pretty much count on 14-16 days. When should I anticipate my hair falling out?I had the same cocktail as you and mine fell out about 2 weeks after my first treatment. So have no fear, it will grow back, and may yours grow back thick and lush and beautiful so you don't have to have these orphan annie curls all over your head!!! Talking to a counselor, and figuring out what role your hair plays in your self-image, might help, as can discussing the possibility of hair loss with family members and friends.Some hair care products can hurt your scalp, and should generally be avoided during chemotherapy, including:Hair loss might be accompanied by pain in your scalp, and you’ll probably notice an increased sensitivity to temperature. After she did it I looked in the mirror and "saw" my grandfather. Please consult your healthcare provider with any questions or concerns you may have regarding your condition. I have to just remind myself to be thankful the lymphnodes were clean. my hair is also not the same color or texture. Now that I've done it once, I can do it again for her last school event. Once it started growing back, it grew like crazy! I have very full (mono-brow if not for tweezers) eyebrows and long, full eyelashes, so I hope I get to keep them. Many patients will notice a thinning of their eyebrows, lashes, pubic hair and body hair. I am 10 days out from 1st Taxotere and Cytoxan treatment too. Patients who previously had straight hair may find themselves growing curly hair, and people who used to have curly hair can regrow looser curls than before.No, and every chemo drug will affect a patient’s hair in different ways.
