Hi, I am starting chemo on 1st March and wondering if anyone has any recommendations for eyebrow pens or treatments that aren’t tattoos?

Also recommendations for shampoos- I am going to try the cold cap but fully aware I am going to have hair loss even if I manage it.

Is anyone undergoing chemo with Invisalign? are you finding you can keep the trays in?

thanks- v nervous but just want to be prepared.

  • Hello Zinnia 123, my suggestion for shampoo is that I was advised to use only baby shampoo when I had chemotherapy, and to be very gentle washing, drying and combing it.

    My best wishes to you for successful treatment.
