Can Hair Loss Caused By Chemotherapy Be Prevented?

Chemotherapy Hair Loss Treatment

Hair loss during chemotherapy might reveal something a person prefers to keep private. But is there a way to prevent losing your hair while undergoing treatment?

Doctors believe your hair may regrow differently after cancer treatment, but it might be a different texture or shade than your original hair.

Possible prevention techniques

Doctors warn about hair loss in cancer treatment but offer ways to slow it. The first is a scalp cooling cap, which can help restrict blood flow to your head.
