    I went through chemo twice. My chemo with Adriamycin/Cytoxin & Taxol I began growing my hair back before my last dose of Taxol. Then it just began growing like crazy! Congrads on your completing chemo!!! It's a huge achievement!!

    I had ended chemo Oct 27th, 2011. Peach fuzz really starting 2weeks after. By Christmas time it was probably 1/2 inch. Now-almost 6months out I have a pixie style-probably a little over an inch long. Looking back at Christmas, end of Jan, I thought I had so much hair at that time....now it just keeps getting longer! I used Nioxin shampoo and took biotin daily. When I was loosing my hair and it was only about an inch long after having my husband clip it, i was so sad that it was so short. After chemo and all I have been through and it is an inch long-I am so happy. Funny how that is huh. It is a thing we have to go through-I am thankful for things much more now!

    I had about 1/2 inch in 3 months. The great thing about my "chemo" hair, it grew back in curly and was so dang cute! It was a really cool "gift" I got to enjoy for about 6 to 8 months. Congratulations on completing your chemo treatment..... YAHOOOO!

    I finished sept 27 and now have about 3 inches at the longest part. The front is a little shorter. I had about 1/2 inch at Christmas. I was able to put my "side burns" behind my ears for the first time the other day and was so excited! I can't imagine what it'll be like when it's in my eyes and I have to pin it back! Congrats on finishing !!

    I finished chemo 3/9 and I have a good peach fuzz going and it's starting to look darker but not really grown in yet...I've heard the same about 6 months. I've never heard of those products but I have been taking a pre natal vitamin.

    My hair came back Gray and strait. I finised chemo June 30,2011. I waited 6 months to colour my hair. I just now feel like I have a hairdo, but i had enough hair to stop wearing hats in November.
