Re grey hair after chemo?

Hi
just wanted to asked if anyone can tell me what can person do to prevent getting grey hair after chemo.Also can someone explain why does the hair change colour and if this is going to e permanent. Can any hair clinic offer a treatment. Would be great to hear from someone who knows more about this. thanks

people dont get grey hair after chemo..they loose ALL their hair while under chemotherapy. Now their hair color after the chemo is over will usually grow in a darker color than what it was prior to the start of chemo and they will not get hair back, usually limited amounts, depending where the radiation, if any, was done..
I should know….7 year cancer survivor

    Many peoples’ hair grows back just the same colour as it was before treatment – mine did. That said, I couldn’t care less if it had grown back bright pink, as long as I remain strong healthy – there’s always hair dye!

    My hair came back curly and thicker after radiation. (Hodgkin’s at age 15) Chemo can also cause hair to come back in a different color and curly or straight. I’ve always heard that if it comes in curly that can actually change after a few years after the chemo. It did for me when I had radiation. My hair finally started coming in straight a year or so after the radiation.

    Now, as to why it can change the color—I don’t know. I can guess that since chemo is/can be toxic, or perhaps by sheer coincidence, that perhaps the hair follicle is damaged or dies (which is what cause hair to turn gray in the first place) and that’s what causes the gray. I’d like to know for sure though. Great question!

    Now, I am starting chemo on Tuesday and I know I’m really gray (thanks Loreal for the memories). So, when my hair falls out and comes back in, I’ve decided not to color it anymore and just stay gray. It’s too much hassle to color it every 3 weeks.

    Good luck!

    My son had chemo, age four.

    when his hair grew back it was softer and lighter in colour than it was before he has red hair and it was quite blonde at first.
    It was also very curly for the first year but gradually it got straighter and now seven years on it is just the same as it was before.

    I also have a friend who had chemo.
    Her hair was grey before treatment, but she always coloured it so no one really knew.
    when it grew back it was grey (of course)
    the other thing was for a good 18 months her hair was very curly just like my sons had been.

    well some people’s hair has been known to change color or shape after chemotherapy but it seems to me that you got chemo right before your hair started to turn gray like it does for most men, and when it grew back in it was quite a shock because it hadnt turned fully gray yet before chemo. you could proably use rogaine.
