Will my hair look different when it grows back?

Will my hair look different when it grows back?

Hot topic! “chemo curls”.

Many people report that the colour and texture of their hair grows back differently to what it was prior to chemotherapy. It may come back super curly or if it was curly it can end up growing back straight, people also note that their hair grows back thicker or more wiry, your hair colour can also change and come back lighter or darker, some people report hair coming back alot greyer than before. New hair growth usually appears after 3 to 6 weeks. How it grows back varies from person to person, and may change over the months it grows back in. For some the changes are permanent and for others only temporary. Chemo drugs attack the follicles and it takes some time for these to get back to how they were pre chemo.
