Why Do Cancer Patients Lose Hair
The question of why do cancer patients lose hair is actually not a valid one. The reason being is that cancer does not cause hair loss. The only exception would be is if you were in the late stages of cancer and were in a state of severe malnutrition for a long period of time.
When we see hair loss it’s always due to chemotherapy or radiation but the vast majority is due to the chemo treatments. What chemotherapy does is go after the rapidly dividing cells and it’s more toxic to those cells. Now, our skin is also rapidly dividing as we have new skin over our entire body in about 6 weeks.
What is in our skin and part of our skin is what’s called appendages such as hair, hair follicles and glands. So, our hair is also rapidly dividing as it naturally grows and is the reason we need haircuts. The other rapidly dividing cells are in our gastro intestinal cells. We have new linings to our stomach, small intestines and large intestines every 3 days as new cells are rapidly dividing.
Any place in the human body that has rapidly dividing cells will be affected by chemotherapy. That’s why we often see people who have started chemo treatments and within a week they have no hair left or have just patches of hair left.
And, some people might feel fine even while losing their hair but what happens is once their “toxic cup” is full and more is added, every little bit will cause a problem.
Again, hair loss is not caused by cancer it is caused by the conventional therapies and treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation.

Last year I had cancer, but did not do Chemo or radiation. In a span of a month 2/3 of my hair fell out. But a few months later after my operation the hair came back in, kinky as a poodle, whereas my hair had a soft wave. They kinky hair has almost grown out
my mother is presently nearly dead after her 2nd lot of chemotherapy. also nearly deaf, which i think is also a result of the hair in the ears being harmed by the chemotherapy. is there a way to stimulate the ear hair to regenerate and to improve hearing?
