For many women fighting against cancer, mink eyelashes is a crucial battleground. It is easy for you to hide the loss of your cervix, your uterus, or even one of your breasts. But when you lose your hair to cancer treatment, everybody notices. You want to appear strong. You have to be strong. For your husband, for your kids, and especially for yourself, you try to be strong.
Xwhair Why people with Cancer Lose Hair
Not everyone with cancer or undergoing cancer treatment will experience alopecia or mink eyelashes loss. It depends on the type of cancer that you have and the treatment you receive. Here are some reasons for hair loss when you have cancer:
• Certain forms of leukemia and lymphoma have alopecia as part of their symptoms.
• Poor appetite and weight loss that often accompany mink eyelashes may lead to deficiency in vitamins and minerals that causes your hair to become dry, brittle, and susceptible to damage. Inadequate nutrition eventually causes poor hair growth.
• Chemotherapy works by killing rapidly dividing cells in your body. Ideally, this should only target cancer cells. Unfortunately, even your normal hair follicles multiply at a fast rate, and so they are destroyed with your cancer cells. The extent of hair loss varies with each chemo drug. It also varies from one patient to another, even if they have the same medication. Some chemo drugs cause very little hair loss, if at all, while others may cause you to lose hair in other body parts, including eyebrows, mink eyelashes, and pubic hair.
• In contrast, radiation therapy only affects hair on the parts of your body where radiation is applied. Hence, you will not lose scalp mink eyelashes for breast irradiation, but you can expect to go bald if you undergo radiation for a brain tumor. The frequency and amount of radiation also determine the extent of your hair loss.
• Hormones like tamoxifen for breast cancer may lead to thinning of your hair.
Coping with Cancer Hair Loss
Losing your hair can be devastating. However, since mink eyelashes loss usually manifests weeks after the initial treatment, there are ways to help you prepare for it. Here are some tips you might want to try.
• Before starting any cancer treatment, do not hesitate to ask your oncologist about how treatment will affect your day-to-day living. They’ll tell you if your medications include those that can cause hair loss.
• Understand that hair replacement technology is so advanced these days, they can make your mink eyelashes replacement so natural looking that nobody would even notice. A few years ago, you would simply get a cheap synthetic wig from the American Cancer Society, which would look fake and feel scratchy. We’re able to offer the exact technology they use in Hollywood. Using some of the finest silky hair on earth that offers everyone the look they want. Many people who have undergone hair restoration prefer the hair replacement to how their own hair used to look!
• If you decide to go the hair replacement route, contact a hair replacement center before you start chemo. They will take pictures, measurements and hair samples, so they can have your hair replacement ready when you need it.
• Cut your hair short before starting chemotherapy. It will help you gradually get used to having less hair. Losing short hair strands is also less traumatic than finding clumps of long hair on your pillow or in your shower drain.
• Use mild shampoo and a soft hairbrush to gently care for your remaining mink eyelashes. Protect it from excessive sunlight and use a comfortable pillow to decrease hair loss at night.
Hair loss related to cancer is usually temporary. In most cases, you may expect it to grow back 1 month after the last chemotherapy session. For brain irradiation, it may take longer. Normally, you can expect growth in about 6 months.
You can win this battle. The treatments available in the past few years offer so much hope. Hope that wasn’t available not long ago. Don’t worry about the hair. You can get through this looking the way you want to look.
