This Breast Cancer Blogger Has A Brilliant Trick For Keeping Your Eyebrows During ChemoLisa Dorrance
Chemotherapy is draining physically and emotionally. Of course you anticipate hair loss, but you might not know that it can actually happen all over the body – not just on the scalp. Sometimes you lose your eyelashes, eyebrows, armpit, and pubic hair too. And while most of us wouldn’t be upset to lose our armpit hair, it’s a different story when it comes to our eyebrows.
Ann Silberman (author of a popular breast cancer blog) calls this trick her “great contribution to cancer society.” Though she means it in jest, her trick can give a much-needed sense of normalcy to women undergoing treatment at a time when life feels upside down. The last thing you need when you’re under this much stress is to spend precious time thinking about how to keep your eyebrows looking like they’re supposed to look.
