Jennifer’s Chemotherapy Hair Loss Success Story!

How it works

Chemotherapy & Radiation Hair Loss

Chemotherapy and radiation therapy commonly deliver unpleasant side effects, and as they work to kill off rapidly producing cancer cells, they also kill off other quick-generating cells, like those responsible for hair and nail growth. In other words, chemotherapy and radiation therapy drugs are poisonous to your hair, skin, and most “good” or healthy cells. Thus, the reason patients commonly lose their hair during treatment and find that their nails even become dry and brittle.

Fortunately, although the discomfort and pain of losing your hair can be difficult to endure, hair most always returns once chemotherapy is completed. It may take six to nine months before adequate hair growth is experienced, and the hair that returns may initially be quite different from the hair you once had, in both pigment and texture. It’s possible your hair will grow back darker, curlier, straighter or with a greater percentage of grey. Not to fret…. the pigment cells should return to normal in time, as will the texture of your hair.

5 Star Review!

I had a great experience at HPI Hair Partners. Kimberly provided multiple options for treating my hair loss and I saw significant hair regrowth. The staff were also very kind and friendly. I would recommend HPI Hair Partners to family and friends.

Kimberly is absolutely wonderful! She is so incredibly kind, knowledgeable and trustworthy! She helped us get to the bottom of our 3 year olds hair loss and we are so thankful for her and her team!

My experience at HPI has been nothing short of wonderful! Not only have I seen great physical results from the various treatments, but I have been encouraged & supported by the entire HPI staff since Day 1! So thankful my family & I found this space!

I am only 20 years old but have been struggling with hair loss for the past few years. I came to HPI about 6 months ago and they have helped my feel more confident that my hair will grow back. It is a commitment and takes a lot of time for you to see results but the workers here give me hope. Kimberly is very encouraging and has helped me not feel as alone in this process. It is hard for anyone to look around and feel like no one else is struggling with hair loss, but especially when you are this young. I would be lying if I said I was not very insecure knowing that ther people can see my bald spots, but knowing there is hope that I can have hair that covers my head encourages me to follow the eating, schedules, and time that HPI plans out for me.

Excellent! I am suffering hair loss and would not have a hair left on my head if I hadn't found HPI. Kimberly was able to stop my hair from falling out in less than 30 days and now I am in recovery mode - my hair is filling in and growing back. I am so thankful for HPIHair Partners!

I have been so grateful to HPI and their efficient and patient staff. I live about two hours away and they do a wonderful job of working with me through mail, phone and email to make sure that all my needs are met with kindness and sensitivity. I don’t know what I would have done without HPI!

I've had a great results with the microneedling treatments and hair products at HPI. My hair is thicker and have new growth which makes it easier to style and looks much better (even if gets wet or is windy). Should have started it sooner but it's never too late to improve the health, look, and feel of your hair. The staff are friendly, knowledgeable and flexible and will help you customize treatments that suit your schedule and budget. I consulted with 2 other hair restoration businesses in the area and found HPI to offer the most options and professional services while making the experience pleasant and comfortable.

HPI is such a special place and I only have wonderful things to say about them. I have struggled with trichotillomania most of my life, and as a result, I would have bald spots throughout my hair. I have always been self-conscious about my hair and never wanted to go to a salon because I was so embarrassed of the condition of my hair . HPI was the first and only place I have found that I feel comfortable going to and I always walk out feeling confident. I am forever grateful for HPI and I am happy to report my hair is growing and looking great!
All staff is very professional and they provide great customer service! They are very knowledgeable and explain in detail the different services and help you in deciding which treatment would be best for your needs. The receptionist is very kind in helping you purchase products or schedule your appointments. They truly care about their clients!
I tried (like I suppose most others) everything to regrow my hair. I tried over-the-counter solutions, went to a dermatologist, then a plastic surgeon learning about hair transplants. I'm so glad I also talked to HPI Hair. I was amazed at the before and after photos and the ‘no pressure’ and no hurry to decide that day way of doing business. Now a few months later I am still so pleased. My ‘new hair’ is wonderful! It is easy to take care of and if I meet someone for the first time they cannot tell it is not my natural hair! I have seen friends who ask about it and all I get are compliments. Most say I look ten or twenty years younger! I know I have much more self confidence and I am very happy.
I have been undergoing the laser therapy treatments for approximately four months. During that time, I have noticed a significant improvement in the quality and texture of my hair. Overall it feels more full, and it is not as frizzy as it used to be. Also, I no longer lose hair like I did before beginning the treatment, in the shower, or in my brush. I have been very pleased with the results, and would definitely recommend the laser therapy to anyone.

I have a testimonial to tell. I was having a treatment last week. This other patient sitting across from me asked me about my hair. She thought I had not lost it. I told her I had lost it over a month ago. She had no clue I was wearing a wig. I have come across several people who are very surprised when they find out I am wearing a wig. It looks so real. I am grateful I found (HPI) and had the opportunity to use (their) services.

What should you expect with chemotherapy & radiation hair loss?

Hair usually begins falling out two to four weeks after you start treatment. It could fall out very quickly in clumps or gradually. You’ll likely notice accumulations of loose hair on your pillow, in your hairbrush or comb, or in your sink or shower drain. Your scalp may feel tender. Your hair loss will continue throughout your treatment and up to a few weeks afterward. Whether your hair thins or you become completely bald will depend on your treatment.

People with cancer report hair loss as a distressing side effect of treatment. Each time you catch a glimpse of yourself in a mirror, your changed appearance is a reminder of your illness and everything you’ve experienced since your diagnosis.

It may take several weeks after treatment for your hair to recover and begin growing again. When your hair starts to grow back, it will probably be slightly different from the hair you lost. But the difference is usually temporary. Your new hair might have a different texture or color. It might be curlier than it was before, or it could be gray until the cells that control the pigment in your hair begin functioning again. For additional information visit the Mayo Clinic website.
