Hair changes from treatment for cancer are common. Listen as Tina & Leah discuss what to expect, including which drugs lead to hair loss, how to reduce your risk, nutrients involved in hair regrowth, and ways to support hair recovery after treatment.

Hair loss, also called alopecia, can be a challenging side effect for many people undergoing treatment. The loss of control, the cultural headwinds, the utter capitulation... It’s a private initiation into a club you never wanted to be part of. Leah has been there.
