1. Hair loss Many chemotherapy drugs (particularly the anthracyclines and taxanes used commonly in the treatment of breast cancer) will cause total alopecia. The effect occurs due to interference with cell division at the hair root. Hair loss usually occurs within 2–4 weeks of the first dose of treatment, but regrowth will start as soon as chemotherapy is over if not before. The effect of the hair pushing through the scalp follicle will sometimes lead to a ‘chemo curl’. While not physically harmful, alopecia can be a major source of ABC of Cancer Care, First Edition.
