I am bald now after 13 treatments of radiation therapy for a brain tumor. Is there a treatment for my dead hair follicles other than just wearing a wig? Now I cover my head with scarves but they fly away when the wind blows.
It is possible that some of the hairs will grow back within a year after the radiation. There is no medication or treatment to bring back hair lost from radiation treatment. All you can do is wait. Temporary hair loss is more common, but hair loss is known to be permanent depending on the dose. A small study about this was published in 2004.
There are other options that may be available, but one can not guess wildly here without waiting out the year.
