Chemotherapy And Hair Loss
Chemotherapy Induced Alopecia (CIA) is the clinical name for the loss of hair during chemo treatments, and it is a problem that many chemotherapy patients must face.
Hair loss occurs because chemotherapy drugs are designed to damage or kill cells that are multiplying rapidly, specifically cancer cells. However, there are other cells in the human body that naturally and normally reproduce rapidly, such as hair cells.
Sensing hair cells rapid growth, the chemo drugs attack and kill the hair follicles and hair cells. When this happens, your hair begins to fall out.
