Why does chemotherapy cause hair loss?

Chemotherapy agents actively target and kill rapidly growing cells, such as those in a tumor . But similar to a tumor, the hair follicle is a highly active structure with a host of cells that frequently divide to produce the growing hair.

Because many chemotherapy drugs are designed to effectively kill all rapidly dividing cells, hair is the unfortunate bystander that takes the fall along with the cancer cells.

While some find the thought of losing their hair so distressing that they refuse chemotherapy, most people will see their locks grow back after the treatment has finished.

Chemotherapy-induced hair loss

The level of hair loss , or chemotherapy-induced alopecia (CIA), depends on the type of cancer , the specific drug, and the dose and pattern of the treatment.

Many patients experience the first wave of CIA within 1 to 2 weeks of starting their treatment.

Areas that experience high friction during sleep, such as the top of the head and the sides above the ears, are often the first to see hair loss. Yet the precise pattern depends on the individual's hair.

Not all chemo causes hair loss and not everyone getting chemo will lose their hair. I had chemo for 8 months and didn't lose any hair, but I lost hair where the radiation went in and came out of my head. My hair grew back a darker color and curly, but
