    My hair has come back after chemo but a coal black color and very curly . Will it ever grow back to its dark brown and straight stage it was before my chemo? Is there anything I can do to change it short of color it with harmful chemical?

      Hi Mimi,
      I’m not an expert on hair, but I can share with you my experience. My hair came back totally grey, almost white at first, and curly. My hair was brown and wavy before I lost it. It eventually became salt and pepper and I decided to dye it back to brown after my kids’ friends kept thinking I was their grandmother 🙂 Congrats on making it through chemo and remember you’re beautiful no matter what you choose to do with your hair!
