I’d like to reach out to the women who are struggling with regrowing their hair after going through harsh chemotherapy treatments that have left them with patches or all-around baldness.
Going through such procedures can be very harmful to the body, which is why it leads to hair loss. As I’ve discussed before in other hair loss articles, when your body is lacking in nutrients or is ill, you will see changes in your hair, including hair fall and graying.
When it comes to chemo, you have to focus on replenishing your body with what it has lost. The amount of radiation that your body has sustained is detrimental to the livelihood of your body.
This is why you become frail, weak and near-death-like. The radiation is literally killing all of the cells in your body, not just the cancerous ones. This in turn causes issues with various parts of your body, such as your thyroid glands, which can play a major role in the health of your hair.
Moving forward with your hair growth after chemo
After completing your chemo, you are ready to get your life and body back, so your health should be your main focus — all else will follow.
This process isn’t a difficult, or even long one, as long as you stick to your goal. The following steps will help to speed up the process of regaining your health and your hair, so that you can finally recognize and smile at the reflection you see in the mirror.
Do not further intoxicate your body with chemicals
Remove all chemicals from your life. Your body is in distress and the last thing you need is to introduce more chemicals into it.
You need to detoxify your system and one way to start is to eliminate toxins that can come in the form of chemical cosmetic products, foods, drinks and house supplies. You want to go organic and natural as much as possible when choosing products to purchase.
Begin removing radiation from your body naturally
Cleansing your system from radiation and impurities is very important for cancer patients. It’s best to detoxify your body using herbs that will attack the problem.
Great ones to use include spirulina and bentonite clay*. Taking both of these daily can reduce the damaging effects of radiation and restore your body.

Thank you!!!! I feel so dismissed by most hair blogs, books & the hair community in general. No one seems to believe we too can have healthy hair. I’m dealing with major hair damage & breakage from Sickle Cell so I will definitely be using these tips. Thank you for addressing an ignored population! #Sick&StillSexy
