Chemotherapy Hair Loss: 3 Ways to Stop It!


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

Chemotherapy targets cancer cells that are rapidly dividing cells (12-72 hour division). Since hair follicles are rapidly dividing cells (12-72 hour division), chemo can’t tell the difference between cancer cells and follicles, causing hair loss.

The good news though, is that if the follicles are not killed completely, they are ready to get busy once you finished your last treatment.

Of course, your body needs to detox from the medication, so the first 68 days are important.

If your scalp is being bombarded by certain common chemicals in shampoos, soaps, creams, moisturizers, you may be inadvertently signaling 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 inuslt to injury.

If you are NOT adding insult to injury, it’s possible that hair growth can start within days of the last treatment, thus the 68 day CRITICAL period. 

Hair growth may be slow at first, but we are here to help you maximize your hair growth and help stop it from falling out. Let’s talk about how to maximize the critical 68 days of supercharging your follicles again.

Chemotherapy Hair Loss: 3 Ways to Stop It

1. Pay attention to everything you put in your hair: This includes everything you lather, slather, spray, squirt, smush, or rub on your hair and scalp. These items contain ingredients like plastic, acrylates, and silicone that get into the pores, follicles, and crevices around where the hair and scalp meet; thus sealing, clogging, and choking off your hair growth. It’s like a wrapper is on your hair and scalp and you can’t simply rinse that wrapper off and out of the follicles and pores. The follicles, which are smothered and can’t breathe, struggle to form hair, but in its compromised condition start to give up, thin out, and eventually give up and you go bald.

2. Avoid soy, corn syrup, and mercury(fish): Unfortunately, soy protein is responsible for phytohemagglutinin, which is a plastic-like complex that lodges in the finest capillaries of the body. Follicles have some of the finest capillaries. Soy is used in everything from salad dressing, bread, protein bars, to biofuel, to the ink that is printed in a book.

Corn doesn’t exactly attack hair follicles, but many nutritionists will tell you that corn products disrupt so many metabolic processes and more, that your body will go into emergency mode again to get that disruptor out of the body, or store it in the fat cells to not deal with it. With your body dealing with all the disruptors, there are minimal to no nutrients left to build hair.

Mercury is a disruptor of the body’s metabolic processes also and is not just in canned tuna. Watch out for swordfish, mackerel king, orange roughy, tuna, and even yellowtail.

3. Avoid substances that collect in or on your follicles: A few decades ago we worried about petroleum and mineral oil in hair products. But now, with “progress”, manufacturers have replaced those oils with silicones, acrylates, waxes, quaterniums, plasticizers, which do wonders for making the hair look better, but that is until it thins out and falls out. For a more in-depth look at these ingredients read Chemo Hair Loss: Worst Things to Put in Your Hair.



We know that there are tons of information out there and sifting through it all can be frustrating. It’s also skewed by the outdated beliefs that silicones, plasticizers and nasties are okay for a scalp and hair. Don’t be fooled ESPECIALLY during your 68 day critical period….or any time for that matter! 

We are here to help you take small CORRECT actions beyond the conventional stuff. 

With each small action empowering the next, you can maximize the health of your hair and scalp, for a lifetime.

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

“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!”
Kelly, Southern California
“My hair is growing in and I’m so excited. You gave me some tips and with the products, my hair is growing in just great. I’m very excited and want to thank you so much.”
Hannah D.
Dallas, TX
“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."
