Intro to Chemotherapy Hair Loss: The Worst Things to Put in Your Hair
Chemotherapy hair loss is a function of hair follicles being attacked by the chemo treatment.
Since hair follicles are a rapidly dividing cell sites (12-72 hour division), they are ready to get busy once you finished your last treatment.
P.S. You probably already know that the reason chemotherapy is so evil towards hair follicles is that it is a drug that seeks to kill “rapidly dividing cells!” Given hair is in this category, this is why hair suffers.
Of course, your body needs to detox from the medication, so the first 68 days are important.
Hair growth may be slow at first, but
we are here
to help you maximize your hair growth and
warn you of some things that you should never put in your hair.
Later, we will give you the link to the “Critical 68-Day Window” for reviving chemo-challenged follicles. A MUST READ!
Chemotherapy Hair Loss: The Worst Things to Put in Your Hair
An important ingredient to avoid is 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 for really cheap.
Silicone is made from sand, 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. Like sand in your bathing suit, the last thing you want at this point is to smother your hair follicles that have survived the battle with chemo.
To name a few versions of silicone (sand derivatives): Dimethicone, Phenyl Trimethicone, Amodimethicone, Dimethicone Copolyol, Cyclomethicone, Cyclopentasiloxane, and the list goes on.
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 as
Another ingredient to avoid is plastic. Plastics, like Polyvinylpolypyrrolidone a.k.a PVP, Polyvinyl, polydimethylsiloxane, Octylacrylaminde/Acrylates/Butylaminoethyl Methacrylate Copolymer, PEG, Cyclohexamine, Cyclohexylamine, Polyquaternium-69 Acrylates/Steareth-20 Methacrylicacid, Methacrylate, Methyl Methacrylate, Crosspolymer, Aminomethyl Propanol, Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate, and even though not plastic, we must mention Talc.
Once hair starts growing in, most want to
add “body” to their hair, so they use gel, mousse, glaze, and sprays. Unfortunately, all those items usually contain plastic to give the feeling of “body” and stiffness to your hair.
The more you use these products to
add “body” to your hair, the more thinning that can occur.
These ingredients smother your hair follicles, which is what the big manufacturers want.
Because you will have even thinner hair and need a better, stiffer product to add “body” to your hair, and they will be able to sell you in the future.
