Hello - I am learning to live with permanent hair loss from a breast cancer treatment drug, taxotere. I started a topic on breastcancer.org and have made friends with women around the world considering treatment with taxotere, or having already been treated with tacotere. Many of us are learning to live this new life of 'no/very little' hair and 'no eyebrows'.

Hi, thank you for the invite, yes I did shave (buzz) my head, hard thing to do, but I think I did the right thing. You said your wig is slipping even with the gel band..is it the one that sits on your head like a headband and you put the wig over it?? Could you use a glue? I tried got2b glued on my old synthetic wig, and it worked amazingly well, that baby wasn't coming off for nothing, and the best part was the got2B glued comes of with water.

Thank you for the friend invite and welcome to alopeciaworld! Sorry I haven't been on as much, my Mama had a stroke and I was one of her caregivers. She's fine now though. Hope you're doing fine and keep in touch!

Hi, OKB (I bet that's not your real name - I'm sensitive like that :) ) - and Ta for the friend add! How's tricks? Hope you're still in remission - any luck with the hair this year?

Hello and welcome!
How are you today? For really natural-looking eyebrows, go to www.beauti-full-brows.com. They are temporary tattoo brows which can last for days and are very affodable. I've been wearing them for many years!

Welcome! My mom had breast cancer, and went the radiation route. She never lost her hair. However...I did...since age ten, with alopecia. Look at the discussion topics for wigs and eyebrows, and write to those who you think have choices that might work for you. Good luck!
