I'm on chemo (not for cancer but for rheumatoid arthritis) and I wan't supposed to lose any hair because it's not as strong a dose as they give for cancer. Boy did I prove my doc wrong. I used to have great hair that went to my waist. I got tired of shedding constantly and pulling giant chunks out of brush so I went and got it chopped off on a whim on Christmas Eve Day. I hate it now, but what's the point of having long hair when it doesn't look good? Any ideas besides buying a wig? My hair's just thin, now, no bald spots, by the way.

my grandma had alopecia and lost all of her hair and it never returned, so wigs were what she did. I have alopecia too but I am just losing alot of my hair. It has gotten very thin so tomorrow i am actually getting my hair cut shorter and hopefully it will be ok. this is what I am getting done. I hope you feel better and that everything works out for you.

first off i want to say god bless you my grandmother has cancer and went through the same thing and also chopped her hair off she even lost her fingernails but what she did after getting sick of her hair falling into her food is shave her head and wear a bandanna when she went out now I'm not saying shave your head but you can leave it alone and just wear something like that!
