Can I color my hair? after chemotheraphy
I had breast Cancer , 6 rounds of tx,ad and cy. My hair started falling out after 2 weeks,( so I
buzzed it all off), easier than hair falling in wads and patchy bald spots.   Anyways, now it's 9 weeks
since my last chemo and I have a lot of hair growth,( fuzzy like a baby chic, I say) and I was always
a blond and the last few years I always colored it to cover grey.  Now my fuzz is white and a lot of
dark and I want to know when I can start coloring it ?   I want to lose the wig as soon as no scalp
is showing but the dark and white color is not me.........how soon after the chemo can I start to color?

Congrats on getting thru cancer tx.  Feels sooooo good when it stops!

I lost my hair to cancer chemo and like you I couldn't wait to lose the wig/scarf/bandana wardrobe.  I started coloring mine after chemo as soon as I had enough hair to cover my head.  It worked out ok.

Three years later ...  same $hit, different disease - my hair is coming out again.  I suppose I'll do the same again.  Too bad this tx seems to last forever.

Color that hair, girlfriend - you deserve to look and feel great!  You're a SURVIVOR.

Here's to you.
