- Question from kheyala1: How can I help my daughter cope with hair loss from chemo?
- Answers - Marisa Weiss, M.D. Hair loss is temporary, but terrible. Go with her to a special hair salon that understands the best way to help a woman deal with this problem. Identify a number of different solutions, including a wig, a nice hat, a soft turban, or just going bald. Listen to what your daughter is telling you, and try to support her choices. Just your being there means so much. And, have fun talking about new hairdos she might experiment with once her hair grows back in.
