Follow the detailed hair care recommendations provided for at least 2-3 months after your last chemo session, as the hair follicle will still be very fragile. The goal is to get your hair back to pre-chemo shedding levels and to allow the hair follicle to strengthen before adding heat and/or chemicals back into your hair care routine.
Once you are back to pre-chemo shedding levels, you can start to gradually introduce heat and hair care products. Reintroduce these gradually. Try one product for a few days to see how your hair responds. Then you could slowly start adding in other products. Similarly, use the hair dryer on low and on cool heat for several days to ensure your hair tolerates it, before using higher heat levels.
