I have had chemotherapy and my hair never grew back in the top and crown of my head. It grew back around the sides and back, but not on top. My hair had started to fall out prior to chemo, and I was on blood pressure medication which may have started the fallout. But I don’t understand why it won’t grow in the top and crown of my head. Can you refer me to a doctor to see in central or Marion county of Indiana. If you could help me I would really appreciate it. I have even gone to the hair club, which just glue hair on your head. I did not want that. I need to know why my hair won’t grown in the top. I do have hair in the very front of my head.
Generally hair loss due to chemotherapy is reversible. Your hair should have grown back after chemotherapy. However, your hair loss may have a component of genetic female pattern hair loss. You should start by seeing your doctor to rule out any treatable causes for hair loss. The only FDA approved treatment for female hair loss is topical minoxidil (Rogaine). Most people just wait out the hair cycle to go out of telogen and into anagen. For more on hair cycles, please see Hairs Falling Out in the Shower, and How It Relates to Growth Cycles.
