This was me, the morning of my last treatment. There's a line of missing hair down my part and right in front (crown?).
Other than that my hair went from very thick to thin. Although I don't think it's very noticeable to others.
Same day, at the treatment center
For comparison. This is a few years old but, my hair cut and length didn't change much.
I cut it to the shoulder before Chemo on the recommendation of the Nurse/Dignicap Master at my center.
I started losing my hair 2 weeks after first Chemo treatment (day 15-16).
I plan on taking pictures every 4 weeks to track loss/growth post Chemo. This Wednesday will be the 1 month mark, still losing at the same rate but, still have most of may hair.
