Intro to Vitamin A and Chemotherapy Hair Loss
Chemotherapy certainly kills cancer. It destroys rapidly dividing cells which include both cancer cells and healthy cells.
Some of the fastest-growing cells in your body are hair follicles.
Normally, cells in your hair follicles divide every 24 to 72 hours.
Within 1-3 weeks of chemo treatments, hair follicles can be damaged, and chemo hair loss can happen gradually or fairly quickly.
After your last treatment, it takes several weeks or so for the chemotherapy treatment to leave your body and stop attacking your healthy, rapidly dividing cells. You want to be diligent, especially in these first 68 days,
to be sure your hair gets all the right attention to get hair growth at its best.
Hair growth may be slow at first, but we are here to help you maximize your hair growth.
Many overlook how important vitamin A is to our body, including our hair and skin.
Vitamin A is essential for cells to grow.
Hair is the fastest growing tissue in the human body, therefore, vitamin A helps hair grow. Skin glands also use vitamin A to produce sebum. Sebum keeps the scalp moisturized and hair healthy.
It’s important to have the proper education about what you need to do to ensure long-term hair growth, or you could end up with weak, thinning hair.
Vitamin A and Chemotherapy Hair Loss
Before you continue reading, it’s important to note that we are not medical professionals, so we don’t give medical advice or make claims.
What’s a sign of a vitamin A deficiency?
The most common sign is the inability to see in low light called xerophthalmia. If left untreated, it may cause blindness.
A long-term deficiency of vitamin A could lead to a higher risk of respiratory diseases and infections. It could also cause anemia (a condition in which the red blood cells do not supply enough oxygen to the body).
Vitamin A is found naturally in many foods and is added to some foods, such as milk. You can get recommended amounts of vitamin A by eating a variety of foods, including the following:
1. Some types of fish, such as herring and salmon
2. Beef liver and other organ meats
3. Green leafy vegetables and other green, orange, and yellow vegetables, such as spinach, sweet potatoes, carrots, broccoli, and winter squash
4. Fruits, including cantaloupe, mangos, and apricots
5. Dairy products, such as milk and cheese
It’s important to note that overdoing your intake of vitamin A can lead to hair loss. If you are concerned with your vitamin A levels, have your doctor test your levels.
