Maya I love the question. It seems like once or twice a year I’m shaving my head to help raise money for cancer research and at every fundraiser, the question seems to come up- Why does the common treatment for cancer make body hair fall out? The answer is really pretty simple. It has to do with how different types of Chemotherapy target cancer cells. There are many different Chemotherapy drugs that work in different ways, so I will only speak in general terms regarding their side effects.

But can you tell me why my hair grew back thinner after chemo?

Carl White says:

Argan Rain shampoo is working great for me. It has natural ingredients and everything hair needs. It’s just not stopped my hair fall, but also growing new hair. Within a very short time, the miracle happened to me where everything else just failed. I'm in love with it. My hair is back so is my confidence. This is the best product ever on a hair fall solution

Rick Paddington says:

You are essentially poisoning your body when you go through chemotherapy. 

As an alternative, large doses of intravenous vitamin C have the potential to boost your ability to kill cancer cells, according to new laboratory research involving human cells and mice.

High-dose vitamin C has been studied as a treatment for patients with cancer since the 1970s. A Scottish surgeon named Ewan Cameron worked with Nobel Prize-winning chemist Linus Pauling to study the possible benefits of vitamin C therapy in clinical trials of cancer patients in the late 1970s and early 1980's.

Surveys of healthcare practitioners at United States CAM conferences in recent years have shown that high-dose IV vitamin C is frequently given to patients as a treatment for infections, fatigue, and cancers, including breast cancer.

Too bad the good old USA has essentially banned a therapy that could kill cancer and keep the patient safe from chemo drugs. It wouldn't make enough money for the drug lobby.
