Chemotherapy Hair Loss: 3 Key Ingredients Hair Growth Oils Must Have


As you probably already know because you have done hours of research, chemotherapy hair loss is a function of hair follicles being attacked by the chemotherapy treatment.

Chemotherapy attacks rapidly dividing cells. Cells that divide every 12-72 hours. This is why the hair is the collateral damage in chemotherapy treatment. 

Hair cells and cancer cells being rapidly dividing cells, the chemotherapy just can’t differentiate between the cells. This is why cooling caps are helpful for some. By reducing the circulation with cold temperatures, the chemotherapy circulates more slowly in the follicles, thus limiting the exposure to the cancer killing drug.

With that in mind, it has been found that the extraneous factors can go a long way in preserving hair growth, and minimizing hair loss durning chemotherapy.

During chemotherapy, you want to eliminate as many other hair-stressing situations as possible.

Keep in mind that the very nature of the cancer tissue is to overtake your body. So, it’s probable that your hair has been suffering from proper nutrition and conditions while the cancer was manifesting. So, now that you’ve taken action and your doctors and medical experts have intervened to eliminate the cancer tissue, you can already say that you are back on track to good health.

While your experts are doing their thing to kill your cancer, it’s time to turn to experts in minimizing hair loss, and even during your chemotherapy start the process of signaling your follicles that growth is wanted, needed, and nurtured!

You can learn more about it right now in a FREE guide “12 Everyday Things Slowing Hair Growth: Hair Thinning Reversed.” Be sure to print it out for future reference as well. Finding a blog post like this can be difficult due to the fact that it is NOT mainstream info copied by bloggers and such, but comes from the partnership of hair growth veterans and their discoveries with clients worldwide, who’ve successfully navigated hair growth in spite of chemotherapy. 

Here’s the best news.  Hair WANTS to grow. Even when it is mistaken as a cancer “rapidly dividing cell.” 

Fortunately, if the hair follicles weren’t killed by the chemotherapy, which can happen….they are ready to get busy once you’ve finished your last treatment.

Of course, you will need to detox from the medication so the first 68 days are important.

Growth may be slow at first, but we are here to help you navigate through it all. It’s important to give your hair and scalp plenty of TLC. We’ll help you maximize your hair growth and help stop it from falling out. Continue reading to learn about three ingredients that hair growth oils must have.

Chemo Hair Loss: 3 Key Ingredients Hair Growth Oils Must Have

1. Proven Penetrating Oils: Oils come in different sizes and it’s important that the oils used are small enough to penetrate into the hair. If the oils used are too large, they won’t penetrate the hair and cause problems for your hair, scalp, and follicles. Though trusted by cultures forever, oils like coconut, olive, argan, etc., may have styling merit by adding a “feeling” of moisture and shine on the surface of the hair strand, it doesn’t go into the hair.
Unfortunately, their molecular weight is too large to penetrate most imbrication of the hair. Though shea butter is often heralded, it’s molecularly too large.
So, in certain situations, the slippery feel will at least allow combs and brushes to slide through a bit easier but has very little to do with strengthening or moisturizing the interior core of the hair.
The heaviness of the hair is due to its inability to absorb into the hair strand or follicle area causing all sorts of short and long-term problems with hair growth, simple style ability, and longevity.

Heavy oils don’t add moisture to the hair. In fact, with a bit of heat, you might be doing to the hair what hot oil does to egg proteins in a pan. It makes them stiff (egg whites) with crispy edges which might taste great as a fried egg. In hair, though, it hardens the strand, crisps the ends (splits them), and breaks them. Keep using them and you’ll end up with dry, thin, broken hair!

With advances in science, new extraction methods have been employed to pull just the “essence” of the oils. These smaller versions are rare, expensive, and not a common ingredient for mass market and salon products. These smaller versions of oils are the most beneficial to the scalp and hair growth bulb in keeping flexibility and pliability.

2. A Blood Circulation Stimulator That Is Hypo-allergenic: It’s beneficial to use a topical and transdermal blood stimulator that makes the blood rush to the follicles (after chemotherapy, of course) to deliver a few extra loads of hair building blocks. Not all stimulators are suitable. Some use capsicum (red pepper), limonene (citrus peel oils), Isopropyl Alcohol (medicinal rubbing alcohol), or linalool (umbrella term for terpene alcohol extracts, some as harsh as turpentine), and a host of volatile active oils.

These could be considered safe for most when used responsibly, but for those with sensitivities, your skin could react badly. At Belegenza, we’ve added a bit of a natural stimulator, menthol.for use during the 68 critical days mentioned earlier.  Very few are allergic to it. As well, we add just a bit to get the job done.

3. Emulsifiers That Keep the Follicles Moisturized Without Clogging the Follicle: Each day as you struggle to keep each and every hair on your head happy, alive, and well, the chemicals that are hidden in those supposedly helpful products are terrorizing the acid mantel and sebaceous glands. As your scalp senses the terror from the chemically-laden hair products, it signals your sebaceous glands to help balance the acid mantle. The glands go into hyper-mode squirting out sebum and this is why your hair may look good in the morning, but by afternoon it looks like a hot mess. Emulsifiers are used in most conventional hair products to blend the oils, silicones and water together to make it appear creamy. Follicles under attack don’t usually like this. 


If your scalp is being bombarded by certain common chemicals you may be inadvertently signaling to the follicles that there’s no hope. Of course with the chemotherapy attacking the rapidly dividing cells, you want to make sure you are not adding insult to injury.

It’s important to do the right things to keep your follicles properly nourished to avoid the death of those follicles.

Fine hair? Tinted? Indescribable damage?  If you have found yourself on the “TRY ANYTHING” wheel, it may be that silicone and synthetic products just can’t quite cover up the damage that has accumulated coupled with hormonal influences on the hair’s natural processes.   As Belegenza begins to purify your hair from these slick cover-ups, the true damage may be revealed and for the first few applications, your hair may tangle, feel dry or more brittle.  This is temporary, as the micro-conditioning agents make their way INTO the damage sites.  Keep going.  It’s temporary, and you’ll be glad you did! Not only that, we’re here to assist you through the process.  You can always start the conversation with “Alan-bot” who should have already popped up to help! If not, feel free to contact us at .

Success Stories

I used your system a couple years ago following my chemotherapy. I never lost my hair completely as my treatment was considered mild. I was pleased with the results but went back to my old shampoo after my hair seemed to recover. Slowly my hair has seemed to thin again, not as bad as during chemo but it’s definitely not like it was after chemo stopped & I had been using your products. I’m going to reorder... Thank you, I’m looking forward to getting back to your shampoo & conditioner on a permanent basis.

“After I completed chemo I was very ready to see my hair start to come back and it was taking its time. I asked my oncology office if they had suggestions and one of the nurse practitioners said to use natural products and that other patients had had good luck with Belegenza. I immediately bought the Belegenza GrowOUT shampoo, RoMANce conditioner and GrowOUT scalp energizing spray. My hair started coming in faster, fuller and softer than expected. I am so grateful to have your products as part of my healing journey as this has helped me feel like myself again. Thank you so much!”

I’m using the grow out suite of products (years of chemo and more in the future) I love every single product and my hair is growing! I’ve been using grow out for 6-9 months. Now that I’ve gone to my natural silver Im wondering if I can start using the grey hair products. Thanks!
