For women focuses on providing hair restoration solutions for women experiencing hair loss due to chemotherapy, trichotillomania or alopecia.
When a woman is given the diagnosis of cancer and chemotherapy is required, this is a very traumatizing and devastating experience. What exacerbates this is that chemotherapy often causes hair loss.
Hair is lost when chemotherapy drugs damaged hair follicles, making hair fall out. It can be hard to predict which patients will lose their hair and which ones won’t, even when they take the same drugs.
If hair loss is going to happen, it most often starts within 2 weeks of treatment and gets worse 1 to 2 months after starting therapy. Your scalp may feel very sensitive to washing, combing, or brushing. Hair most often falls out in clumps during shampooing or brushing. Sometimes, clumps of hair are found on the pillow in the morning.
There is good news. Hair loss due to chemotherapy often starts to grow back once treatment ends.
At du Brule Hair Clinic, we see the devastating effects chemotherapy can have and we strive to help by giving you beautiful natural feeling and comfortable hair so you can feel beautiful.
Our hair prostheses are specifically designed for the sensitive scalp during chemotherapy. They are ultra-light, reducing itchiness with plenty of breathability.
All our services are in private spacious rooms for you and anyone you may want to bring with you. We are there throughout your treatment with complimentary follow-up styling sessions to ensure you are feeling your best!
We encourage anyone wanting to have hair during their hair loss to come to our clinic before or at the very beginning of treatment before any hair loss has occurred. This allows us to match your colour and be able to replicate your current style.
Hair prostheses may be partially or fully covered by your health insurance and all the necessary documentation with be provided to you.
When your treatment has been completed and your hair begins to return, we are available with specialists to help you transition back to your natural hair. We carry regenerative Treatment kits for pre and post chemotherapy. These kits contain shampoo for sensitive scalp and hair, as well as products designed to stimulate hair growth and our Treatment lotion that is a powerful treatment for cicatrices (a scar resulting from formation and contraction of fibrous tissue in a wound).
