Post-Chemo Hair Growth Timeline
Following a cancer diagnosis, the first thing you Google after "Will I die?" is "Post-chemo hair growth." I try not to obsess over my appearance, but hair (or a lack thereof) really does transform a person. When I was bald, I would stare at the pictures on this blog and try to imagine myself in 6 months with a decent pixie cut. Finally, that day has arrived! Exactly six months ago, I had my last dose of chemotherapy. So let's take a look at my hair timeline!
Two months before chemo (so happy and naive!)
During chemo (extremely bald)
1 month after chemo (yikes!)
2 months after chemo
3 months after chemo
4 months after chemo
5 months after chemo
6 months after chemo
Why, that looks like an intentional haircut! In fact, I've been getting a lot of compliments on my pixie cut recently. They always say, "I love your haircut," but their voice says, "It took guts to ask for that haircut. I admire your bravery."
Special bonus: If I style my hair just right, I look like the Grinch. Perfect for holiday parties! I should pick up some green temporary hair spray.
