After Chemotherapy, Baldness Can Be Beautiful Relief

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Chemotherapy is a grueling part of cancer treatment but the resulting baldness can be the best part.

That’s the bald-faced truth, according to breast cancer survivor Andrea Fox, who says there are benefits to being bald she never would have imagined if she hadn’t had chemo.

For instance, when Fox lost her hair, she discovered she was a real fox because her lack of locks accentuated her eyes and cheekbones.

Her cueball condition also inspired her to develop a hat collection and she discovered a little secret: Men love women in hats.

In her words, “I got all sorts of compliments and when you’re going through cancer treatment, flirtation definitely helps.”

But the biggest benefit Fox discovered when she went bald is how her hair returned with a vengeance. As she puts it, “My hair used to be stick-straight and now it has more curl and body than ever before.”

Fox has been cancer-free for 15 years but uses her experience at the Mentor Corporation, where she works for the breast reconstruction division.
