It’s been about two full months since my last week of Temodar. I got a haircut over a month ago but lately my ‘do has been looking like a don’t, so I made an appointment to get another haircut today.
If you don’t know what I look like, you should know that I’ve had short hair for the past 16 years and frequent haircuts are a must.
But I digress…
Karli and Amithyst were trying to figure out how this could have happened when I reminded them that it has been about two months since I stopped chemo.
Temodar doesn’t make one lose hair, but the poison that is chemo can certainly mess your body up big time. As Karli reminded me, all the bad crap in your body comes out at some point or another, and it often leaves through your hair. I didn’t know that.
Actually, the entire time I was on chemo my hair wouldn’t dye the way it had pre-cancer. Usually it takes about a half hour for hair dye to process on me, but on chemo it could take up to an hour and a half.
