Chemo Curls

Nurse Lottie did warn me: “Your hair might grow back curly.” It makes me think that the chemo must get into one’s very DNA.

I have been hoping that, as my hair grows longer, it might straighten out of its own accord. It is about three inches long now. Today I washed it and applied three different products: Paul Yacomine Micro Treatment Oils; Trevor Sorbie Straigthening Addic Smoothing Balm and PACT Impact Fiber Styling Cream (no I haven’t bothered to gen up on the ingredients). But my hair is still just a big curly bouffe.

Well, I regard this as a high class problem.

Tell us your hair growth story.

  1. Well that is interesting news… tell me more?As for the straighteners, I did have a pair of those very expensive GHB ones. I gave them away thinking “I will never need these”

  2. I don't know the science, but I believe the type of hair you have is determined by the shape of your hair follicles, which obviously get damaged by the chemo – that's why it all falls out! My mums took a year but went straight again. Mine is only an inch long but has some funny kinks appearing… If your friends want to know what to buy you for birthday/Christmas, GHDs might need to be on the list!
