Hair loss is one of the most worrying side effects of chemotherapy.
There’s almost nothing to be done about it, and you can generally expect
to experience it two to three weeks after your first session.
As a result, the scalp can become damaged and dehydrated, and irritation
can occur because of wearing a wig.
But the hair bulb remains intact and hair will grow back at the end of the treatment.
Throughout this time, your goal should be to hydrate and soothe your scalp.

amount of Crème aux Fleurs, packed full of ultra-moisturizing and soothing properties.
Apply to a dry scalp and leave on for ten minutes before rinsing thoroughly.

it by using Lait Lavant à la Banane on a daily basis.

for supple skin and zero itching.
Tip: wear a cold cap during each chemotherapy session.
The coldness puts the hair bulb in hibernation mode, slowing down hair loss
and improving the quality of your regrowth once you are done with your treatments.
Hair will grow back stronger than ever.

and botanical oils is powered by suction pads to treat the scalp and strengthen the hair.
When your hair starts growing back, it often feels coarse and difficult to style.
Be patient: it will take at least a year to get your hair back to its state.
Meanwhile, reach for formulas that moisturize deeply, such as Huile de Leonor Greyl,
which you can apply as a pre-shampoo treatment to restore suppleness.

or Shampooing Reviviscence, which are perfectly suited to the regrowth period.
