Restoring Hair Growth After Therapy

Aggressive radiation or chemotherapy rapidly and effectively attack growing cancer cells, but the chance of hair loss while undergoing these therapies is very real. Chemotherapy drugs also attack other rapidly growing cells in the body including those in the roots of your hair. Radiation treatments generally cause hair loss at the specific area of treatment, so cranial radiation therapy can also disrupt hair growth on the scalp.

Hair loss experienced while undergoing aggressive treatments is the most feared side effect of radiation and chemotherapy for most men and women. To many people, complete balding is a visible sign to the world that they are battling cancer, adding to the stress and trauma of treatment. The good news for these patients is that the hair growth cycle will resume typically 30-60 days after treatment is completed, and New Look Institute offers the Capilia Well-Being Care Kit to address the specific needs of scalp health and hair restoration throughout the treatment process. 

The Well-Being Care Kit 

The products in the Well-Being Care kit are specifically designed to minimize the trauma and discomfort caused by aggressive treatment regimens while fostering the healthiest conditions for regrowth. The hair loss is actually triggered when chemo and radiation treatments cause major disruptions in scalp conditions affecting the levels of natural oils in the skin under the scalp, as well as contributing to a hormonal imbalance in the body. This can cause congestion in the follicles and an itchy, dry, flaky scalp during and after treatments. The Well-Being Care Kit provides the lotions and shampoos to ease this discomfort, available as a self-care solution for troublesome symptoms.

Hydrascalp Shampoo and Lotion

Throughout treatment and afterward, the hair and scalp will require daily cleaning, moisturizing, and stimulation.  A blend of calendula oil, hydrolyzed cornstarch, and witch-hazel extract in Hydrascalp shampoos and lotions eases scalp discomfort and sensitivity. Hydrascalp products can be used during treatment to ease these symptoms and to enhance healthy scalp conditions when the growth cycle resumes after treatment.

Vitascalp Shampoo and Lotion

Vitascalp shampoo and lotion contains an organic concentrate of amino acids, vitamins, and proteins which promote vigorous scalp and follicle health as the natural hair growth cycle resumes after treatment. These active natural ingredients help to unplug follicle congestion and restore the balance of oils in the scalp, providing the nutrient-abundant conditions needed to restore the natural growth cycle of new hair.
