Hair loss can be devastating and it is an unfortunate side effect of most chemotherapy cocktails. Luckily, there are wigs, head scarfs, and hats if you don’t feel comfortable rocking your bald head. You may become surprisingly comfortable with the bald head look like I did.  Losing your eyebrows on the other hand can be a bit more challenging. I felt like I looked like ET — bald and brow-less. Don’t despair!!! There are wonderful products that can be used to create natural looking brows, even when you only have a few lonesome brow hairs left. Due to sparse brows and over plucking as a teen, I have been filling in my brows for years and I have learned a lot along the way. I hope you find the products and suggestions below helpful. I have also provided some links to my favorite YouTube brow gurus.
