Customer Question

A had radiation for a brain tumour almost two years ago. But the hair has not grown back in the place I had the radiation. There's just a large bald patch. Doesn't look good at all.
I decided to shave my head but I don't like that look. So I'm growing the hair back....but again that patch remains bald.
Any advice?

Hi there.
Thank you for your question.

Unfortunately it is very unlikely for hair to grow back again.

You can try using OTC rogaine hair spray that contains minoxidil.

This may help but it may take three to four months for you to see any discernible benefits from it.

Let me know if you have more questions.
