Intro to Unlocking the Secret to Post-Chemo Hair Growth: Avoid These Hair Enemies!

If you’ve recently undergone chemotherapy or are in the process, the burning question on your mind is likely…..

….”Does hair grow back after chemo?”hair growth after chemo, post chemo hair growth

The good news is that hair follicles, being rapidly dividing cells, are poised to regenerate after the last treatment. 
The medical term, rapidly dividing cells, refers to cells that replicate in less than 72 hours.

Think 5 o’clock shadow where hair is noticeably growing by the end of the work day.

Hairs on our heads do this, but you don’t notice it, due to length.

Of course, after chemo, it becomes noticeable as the hairs sprout through the follicle opening and that’s a very welcome sign of good things to come. 

Cancer cells do this, too!

They tend to replicate in less than 72 hours, and that’s what chemo is designed to target. So while chemo is for the cancer, it causes collateral damage–it zaps the hairs and follicles. 

So, as soon as the toxicity of the chemo is flushed out of the body, the first 68 days post-chemo are crucial for purification and promoting optimal long-term hair growth.

In this blog post, we’ll explore the do’s and don’ts of post-chemo hair care, focusing on the worst things you should avoid putting in your hair.

Before we delve into the details, it’s essential to clarify that while we’re here to offer guidance, we’re not medical professionals providing medical advice. We are sharing what we’ve learned and experienced from countless patients, their caregivers and other medical professionals.

One crucial ingredient to steer clear of is silicone.

Although often found in personal care products, silicone can harm your recovering hair follicles.

This seemingly innocent substance, derived from sand, has undergone molecular modifications that make its particles so small they can lodge into your hair follicles, hindering growth.

Common silicone derivatives to avoid include Dimethicone, Phenyl Trimethicone, Amodimethicone, and more, and lots of stunningly named versions of silicones.  Check out our Silicone Derivatives Avoid List for an accurate and eye opening cheat sheet!

Plastics, another hair foe, are present in many styling products like gels, mousses, and sprays.
Ingredients such as PVP, Polyvinyl, and various acrylates contribute to the feeling of “body” and stiffness in hair.



Yes, chemically liquid plastic, the main ingredient in most gels.

They tend to work to hold hair curls or give style memory, but unfortunately, they also smother your hair follicles, leading to thinning over time.
