How To Care For Your Hair As It Starts To Grow Back In

« Previous


As your hair starts to grow back, your scalp may feel extra tender, dry or itchy.

When you wash your hair:

  • Use a moisturizing shampoo. It doesn't have to be expenive.
  • If you use conditioner, use a moisturizing one. 
  • Gentle creams or lotions may also help.

Hair treatments:

  • According to the American Cancer Society, most doctors do not recommend using hair dyes until after hair returns to normal and the skin has healed. This may be as long as six months after the end of treatment. (Semipermanent hair colorings that gradually wash away after 4 - 6 shampooings are less damaging than permanent hair-coloring products.
  • According to The American Hair Loss Council, wait until your hair is at least 3 inches long before having it chemically curled or permed.A mild body wave produces the best rseults, with the hair wrapped loosely around the largest size curler possible. Tight curls can damage the recovering hair shafts, causing them to break.
  • Drastic color changes may result in increased hair breakage.
