Hair Growth Timeline Post Chemo | Breast Cancer

So the time has come that my hair is finally long enough to style! It’s almost long enough to put in a ponytail without a million bobby pins. I’d give it another month or two and then I’ll have more styling options.

One of the top questions I get is how my hair has grown back post chemo. I’m sure my hair would be much longer but I’ve had six haircuts and trims. I wanted to keep it styled without it being an absolute mess but I also want it to keep growing. It’s definitely a challenge but with a little patience and headbands, I’ve learned to embrace each stage.

Some of these images I’ve never shared, so enjoy my hair journey! Make sure to follow me on Instagram @moniquerose8 and follow my journey at #MoniquesHairGrowth.
