    I had 4 rounds of AC each 3 weeks apart. After the last treatment, I noticed my eyebrows were starting to get thinner and the same with eyelashes. I never had enough chemo to lose them totally.

    I lost my hair first about 15 days after my first treatment. Then it was several more weeks before my eyebrows & eyelashes came out. :)

    I lost all my hair by the 3rd week after my 1st ac treatment. I still have my eyebrows but, my eyelashes are very thin out ;( I already had 4 ac treatments.

    I started to lose my hair after 12 days. Eye brows and lashes stayed almost throughout very treatment. I didn't notice they were falling out bc they were thinning, and started to grow in before all of them fell out. Because I lost both at the end and my hair started coming in , I was only without my lashes and brows for a month or so. I know everyone's different Though-I had 8 treatments. AC then Taxol.

    I had 6 treatments of ACT (same drugs, different order) over 5 months. My hair started falling out after the 2nd treatment - about 3-4 weeks after I started. It came out in clumps so I had my head shaved. My eyebrows and eyelashes hung on until after my 4th treatment.
