Some chemotherapy drugs can cause temporary hair loss. There is no way to predict this side effect with absolute certainty. However, you can be prepared.

Always comb hair gently and use a mild shampoo. As hair starts to thin, consider cutting it short or even having it neatly clipped to the scalp by a professional stylist. The close-cropped or “shaved head” look is popular with many men and can offset concerns abut patchy hair loss. Just remember, doctors caution against shaving the scalp with a razor, which can cause hard-to-heal cuts that can result in infection when blood counts are low.
