When faced with hair loss, scalp care is important too
Last, we need to talk about the scalp. Many cancer patients experience the distressing and well-known side effect of hair loss. But what we don’t pay attention to is scalp care that comes with it. Hair loss is extremely visible, and many people will opt to wear a wig while going through their treatments. This means that your scalp will need some extra TLC. It can very itchy and dry from the wigs. Find a deep conditioner with minimal ingredients to moisturize your scalp. You can also use natural oils like you might for your skin. When you wash your scalp, know that you don’t have to vigorously scrub the sensitive skin. Simply rinse off the scalp gently in the shower.
