Before losing your hair, are there any warning signs like a tingly scalp? It's been 1 week since my first round and I'm waiting for it to begin.

    Mine came out in small clumps after 12 days. On day 14, I shaved it and had a Mohawk. Having it come out in hair brush, shower, elastic, etc., was too upsetting, so taking control was important . No other signs I noticed... Best wishes

    Hi Lori, my scalp felt a little tight & tingly a couple of days before my hair began to fall out. It was on day fourteen when it started coming out.

    In a general sense, hair begins to fall out 14-16 days after your first round. Eyebrows and eyelashes could fall out if you are doing four or more rounds.

    I started my 1st round of chemo TCH on November 29. I first started noticing hair lost in my underarm and pubic areas. The hair on my head is beginning to come out in strands but I cut it really short a week before chemo in preparation and have started to get my wigs made.
