7 Tips for Stages of Hair Growth After Chemo

Intro to 7 Tips for Stages of Hair Growth After Chemo

After your last chemo treatment, it takes several weeks or so for the chemotherapy treatment to leave your body and stop attacking your healthy, rapidly dividing cells, which signifies the turning point.

By now, you probably already know that chemo is designed to attack and kill rapidly dividing cells. Rapidly dividing cells are cells that double in 12-72 hours. This is cancer tissue and….hair. 

This is why hair is lost during chemotherapy.

(Also, the period immediately following the last chemotherapy treatment is a critical 68 days that makes or breaks hair growth).

As bad as it sounds, this stage is welcome, and you want to be diligent, especially in these first 68 days, to be sure your hair gets all the right attention to getting hair growth at its best.

The 68 days following your last chemotherapy treatment is the time when your body is detoxing from the cancer-killing compounds and follicles are either just about dead, or about to start growing hair again. 

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 permanently.

7 Tips for Healthy Hair After Chemo

1. Eat a nutrient-dense diet: Protein is important because it provides the amino acids that makeup keratin, which is the building block of your hair. Lean meats, beans, fish, eggs, dairy, kale, and asparagus are great protein sources.
If you are vegan, there are choices, yet stay away from soy.
Otherwise, when you see your hair falling, you won’t be able to say we didn’t warn you.

Healthy fats, such as coconut, olive, and flaxseed, provide your body with long-chain polyunsaturated fats and linoleic acids necessary for hair structure. Notice soy oil is NOT in the healthy list. Fruits and vegetables are essential to provide a variety of nutrients such as vitamin c, vitamin a, vitamin b5, vitamin b12, folate, zinc, and niacin.

2. Add supplements: Take a multivitamin and mineral supplement daily for nutrients you didn’t get in your diet. For instance, zinc is important for hair growth, and you can lose zinc in sweat. If you exercise a lot, then it is possible to be deficient in it.
Also, suppose you are having any blood work done. In that case, ask them to check your magnesium levels (more than 300 processes in the body rely on sufficient magnesium levels and Americans are typically deficient).

3. Reduce stress: Large amounts of stress can use up nutrients, like B-Vitamins, which are essential to healthy hair and hair growth.
Also, stress pushes your hair follicles into the growth cycle’s resting phase, causing your hair to shed and become thin.
Also, corn syrup and sugars take loads of B-Vitamins to process, thus reducing B-Vit levels to alarming lows.
So, don’t stress eat sugars on top of being stressed. Try yoga, meditation, exercising, and a scalp massage, or put on some fantastic music and dance your stress out right there in your living room!

4. Exercise regularly: To help increase your spirits, maintain a healthy weight, and help you sleep better at night, maintain a good exercise regime. OR… at least stretch and get some flex and circulation going.

Use it or lose it, so keep in mind that all of these things will help keep hormones balanced and promote healthy hair growth.

5. Stay hydrated: Your body will direct water to all of your vital organs first, then to your hair follicles. If you don’t consume enough water, your hair follicles will not receive any, resulting in dull, lifeless, dry, and breaking hair.
By the way…. coffee, tea, and specialty waters don’t count.
Pure, clean water “rinses” your cells.
So think of it this way if you are unsure about the beverage you are about to count as water.
Ask: Would I shower in this? (Well, maybe a light champagne once in a while might be nice…..but you get the point!)

6. Avoid heat styling: As everyone knows, heat styling tools tend to dry out your hair. Especially if you use the tools on high heat. Limit your use of heat styling tools and always use the lowest heat setting possible.
Tip: Just before applying the wand, or iron to your hair, rub the barrel on a damp washcloth to remove the collected heat that scorches the cuticle.

7. Nurture your menopause hair: Use natural, gentle, chemical-free hair products to nourish your hair and scalp. And just because it says natural does not necessarily mean good for hair. Silicones are considered natural, yet silicones wreak havoc on hair and follicles. Get your list of avoids for free by clicking here now. Silicone AVOID List.

Also, incorporate a weekly deep conditioning treatment for deeper nourishment to your hair and scalp. The best products for your hair are found in the Restore Hair: Dry, Brittle, Split Ends package. For your weekly deep conditioner, use RoMANce Deep Conditioning Treatment.

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!
