How to Aid Hair Regrowth After Cancer with Supplements

What Is Cancer Hair Loss?

If you are experiencing a cancer diagnosis or are undergoing cancer treatments, such as chemotherapy, radiotherapy, or hormonal therapy, then it may be likely you could experience hair loss as a side effect to the treatment. Hair loss can begin around 2-3 weeks after starting treatment. This could be partial hair loss or it could be more extensive, complete hair loss; thinning of your hair could also take place.

It is possible that thinning hair or hair loss due to cancer can affect people in a variety of ways. While some may manage with little to no hair loss; others may feel a physical and an emotional impact from the symptom.  Whatever you feel, we can help you find an effective nutritional solution to support your body and hair in the most natural way possible.

When your body is put through such tough measures, like chemotherapy, it can really affect your hormonal, nutritional and metabolic balances. While it is necessary to have the treatment your specialists recommend, but it’s a sensible idea to recognise that having chemicals in your body will probably tire you out a little and can have negative effects on your skin and hair. Hair loss after chemotherapy drugs or radiation therapy cannot be totally prevented but the good thing is that it can be managed well, with effective nutritional support.

 After treatment takes place, new hair usually begins to grow back. This may be exactly as it was before, or may be slightly different in texture, colour or appearance. Regrowth can often vary and its normal for hair to grow around half an inch per month. People usually see new hair growing again around 2-3 weeks after treatment is completed. 

Treatment for cancer is likely to make you feel a bit run down and deplete your body of vital nutrients. This can influence the rate of hair regrowth, as it may be slower if you don’t have the right levels of essential vitamins and minerals to help your body heal. You may have noticed less hair in certain places, such as around your hairline or the crown of your head. Supporting your body and hair with good nutrition, both during and post cancer treatments, will strengthen and nourish your hair follicles and enable your hair to grow stronger and healthier as a result.
