yes, octogirl. It did seem to take forever at first so I can relate! Then I started using these hair pills that seemed to shoot my hair out more quickly. Here is my hair at 46 weeks after chemo!

Hi. Can anyone answer this question? Is it better to have my head completely shaved after my last chemo infusion and have my scalp start the process of regrowth with a shaven head?

I just had my last chemo yesterday (12 weeks of Taxol) and most of my hair is gone but not all of it. Should I just get rid of what didn't fall out? Will my new hair come in better that way?

Any suggestions would be helpful.
