Wigs for chemotheraphy

We are aware of your anxiety about wearing a wig. It may look unnatural or you may not find one that suits your Indian look and the hairstyles you are used to. Today, if you want to buy a wig, the options available to you are poor quality products from local parlours or international websites where the quality is good but the focus is on international looks and styles which you can’t relate to. Dr.haircare brings for you quality wigs that have been customised with our international expertise in Indian hair and styles which are specifically designed for your natural look. Ask us That Set Dr.Haircare Wigs Apart to know more about this.

We at Dr.Haircare understand the needs of a cancer patient and the journey ahead of you. We believe in bringing you the right information and help through our network of doctors and experts hoping that we can help make your journey become a little easier.

When will I start losing my Hair during Chemotherapy?

You can expect to start losing your hair after 15 days from your first chemotherapy cycle. This may vary from patient to patient depending on the exact drugs and dosage. It might be a good idea to ask your oncologist to get a clear idea. We urge you to go through our Blogs section to know more about managing your hair loss during chemotherapy..

Will my hair come back after my chemotherapy? When?

Yes. All the patients who suffer from hair loss during chemotherapy will experience regrowth of hair once the treatment stops. You can expect your hair to start growing after 3 to 4 weeks of your last chemo cycle. However this growth is extremely slow (around 0.5 inches a month). So you can expect to get around shoulder length hair almost 8 to 10 months after your last chemotherapy session.

Do all cancer patients lose their hair?

No, not all the patients. Usually hair loss is a major side effect of one of the treatments in cancer – ‘the chemotherapy treatment’. Even within this treatment, there are a few drugs and dosages in which hair loss will NOT be a side effect of the treatment. We urge you to confirm with your oncologist about the expected side effects of your treatment.

I know nothing about wigs! Where do I start?
