  • For example, Adriamycin often causes total hair loss (including body hair) when administered every three or four weeks as a higher dose injection, while lower doses often result in almost no hair loss. 
  • As you probably know, chemotherapy is a cancer treatment which uses powerful drugs to kill cancer cells. 
  • Unfortunately, these drugs target not only cancer cells, but all rapidly dividing cells -- which includes hair follicles. 
  • Other drugs which may result in hair loss include Taxol, Ifosfamide, Etoposide, Dactinomycin, and several others. 
  • It is important to note that, while hair loss is a result of chemotherapy is temporary but hair loss as a result of radiation therapy is often permanent.
