    • That’s not really due to stress, though. (Although excessive stress can actually cause hair loss.) Chemotherapy is basically carefully controlled poisoning. Since one common characteristic of cancerous cells is rapid, out of control growth, chemo agents are selected because they’re most easily absorbed by fast-growing cells. The idea is that they’ll kill off tumors before they do too much damage to healthy tissue, but they still do at least some damage to non-cancer cells. Hair cells are some of the fastest growing cells in the body, so they’re more affected than most other healthy cells. That’s why chemo patients lose their hair.
