Advice: I purchased JustNatural Chemotherapy Hair Loss Treatment to help with my hair loss. Vitamin rich nutrients from plant oils - no chemicals and at this point, we all have too much going with chemicals.

    I would love to hear how, and if, it works. When receiving chemotherapy, it targets cells that are the type that divide rapidly. Since hair is that type, that is why your hair drops out. Are you receiving chemotherapy? I asked my oncologist, after I received the first treatment, how long before I lost my hair? He said 2 weeks.... and it was right on the 2 week point! I reached up to scratch my head and a clump of hair was in my hand. I just say, it really disturbed me. I went right out to my barn and got my horse clippers, and shaved my head. That slow falling out stuff was for the birds! I wanted to get that over with. I know this is kind of going off the tracks a bit but even though I bought a wig, and scarves, etc., etc. I was just much more comfortable "GOING COMMANDO"!!!! BALD! I did wear a bit of a beanie, only because my head got cold. In my photo.... I am wearing reindeer antlers to one of my treatments and laughing about it. I didn't want to hide from people and make this a big secret. I wasn't dying, I was still laughing, and certainly still myself. So Kim, if your plant oils don't retain your hair.... be proud of your "Chrome-Dome" wear it proudly..... unless it is -20 outside!

      I found the JustNatural Chemo Hair Loss Treatment just before my second chemo treatment when my hair was already gone. The process of oiling my scalp makes me feel better & I am using this to save my eyebrows.

    That sounds wonderful because your skin goes through some changes when on chemo. I never lost my eyebrows during treatment for which I was ever so grateful! Hang in there and do what makes you feel the best. This is all just a temporary in the big picture.... and just in case, get an eyebrow pencil. You go girl!
