I am 6 months post chemo for Breast Cancer  -  I had to stop chemo three quarters of the way through due to nerve damage in hands and feet.

 

However my problem is my hair has grown back completely opposite to what is was pre chemo.  It looks like a bad perm and I'm wondering if I shave it off agin - will it grow back differently? (i.e. not curly)

Hi, when I finished my chemo my hair grew back curly and was salt& pepper, now it has gone back to being straight with a slight kink. It’s very dark in the middle and beautifully white around my face which I like now, I was just so happy to start seeing the old me returning. Once you have it cut a few times it should return to normal, good luck and I’m very happy you have finished your chemo.
