Hello lovelies - I have FINALLLY started to see some hair sprout on my head after about 5 weeks of finishing Chemo!!!

 Having said that, its growing sparse and the growth is uneven height. Did any of you experience this? Did you try shaving it all off to get even growth? Anything else helped?

    I got mine buzzed off using #3 clippers every few weeks for the first couple of months until it thickened up a bit and all that creepy chemo frizz had disappeared. Mine is still very woolly and curly if I let it grow, so I keep it very short.

    I hated the white fluffy stuff that grew back first so I did a No 1 clip and got rid of it.

    Yes, mine grew back uneven. I get it trimmed regularly. Texture's still not right though! K xox

    My hairdresser kindly used to clip around the back (I weirdly had very long white hair on my neck and hardly any at the front) it made a huge difference. I kept mine very short while  the patchiness filled in.
