Intro to After Chemotherapy Scalp Care & Hair Loss
It’s natural to be emotional about hair loss and deal with it differently than others.
Our hair is part of our identity.
We control the cut, color, and style.
With hair loss, it’s as if we are losing control.
For some, no matter how well they were mentally prepared for hair loss, it was still very upsetting.
If you are missing your routine of shampooing and styling your hair, take on a NEW routine to cleanse and nurture your scalp.
It’s important to take great care of your scalp to promote and encourage new hair growth.
Continue reading to discover the best way to nourish your scalp to promote and maximize hair growth.
After Chemotherapy Scalp Care & Hair Loss
Cleanse your scalp regularly: Use a gentle, natural, and free from chemicals shampoo to cleanse your scalp. IlLustrious Shampoo & Cleanser, by Belegenza Natural Hair Care is your best option.
It’s gentle, low-lathering, SLS-free, silicone-free, paraben-free, gluten-free, petrolatum-free, mineral oil-free, phthalate-free, and more.
Massage your scalp: Using the pads of your fingers, move in a circular motion all-around your scalp. This helps to ease tension and increases blood flow to your hair follicles.
Use a natural moisturizer: Apply a natural moisturizer to your scalp to help nourish the scalp and soothe any irritation. TimeLess Skin Moisturizer by Belegenza Natural Hair Care is an unprecedented lotion for your scalp and body. It’s lightweight, non-greasy, and non-sticky, as it sets the stage for hair growth as soon as chemo treatments are complete!
Protect your scalp from the environment:
A daily dose of sunshine can lift our spirits and help heal our bodies. With thin hair and bare scalps, it’s important to protect the scalp. You can wear head coverings and sunscreen.
Remember to cover your head during the winter because you can lose a lot of heat from your head.
Wash your head coverings: It’s important to wash them regularly to prevent unnecessary scalp irritation. If there is a build-up of naturally occurring bodily secretions, like perspiration, oil, and skin shedding, it can irritate your scalp. Follow the care labels in your head covering to ensure you are cleaning properly.
For wigs, make sure you are washing appropriately for human hair or synthetic hair.
Pillowcase: Use a pillowcase made from natural fibers such as silk, cotton, or linen. Synthetic fibers, like nylon, can irritate sensitive skin.
Avoid silicone: You commonly find silicone in sealants, adhesives, lubricants, medicine, cooking utensils, and thermal and electrical insulation. Sadly, it is also found in personal care products because it makes a great spreading agent and glossing agent and it’s super cheap (extracted from sand!)
Silicone is made from sand (just like the caulk around your toilet and shower tiles) , therefore, it is marketed as natural and organic. Over the years, chemists have figured out how to make the molecules smaller and smaller until they are so small that they lodge into your hair follicles, smothering them. The last thing you want at this point is to smother your hair follicles that have survived the battle with chemo. You don’t want to do anything other than help your hair to grow, right!?
For a more in-depth look, check out our Silicone Derivatives Avoid List. Silicone and its derivatives, like a liquid glass or plasticized oil covering seal the scalp and stop the ability to absorb nourishment transdermally. Silicone derivatives are cheap fillers that made it under the radar (cuz sand is organic) as being safe.
