I take low-dose chemo as a treatment for rheumatoid arthritis, and a side effect was gradual hair loss. Because it never fell out all at once, I hadn't noticed that my new hairs were growing in curly. Eventually, they reached a length that was noticeable.
Having always wanted curly hair, I do love this side-effect. I'm just wondering why it would do this, and can I expect it to last?
If it makes a difference in your answer, I've been taking methotrexate for three years now, and unless my doctor changes my treatments I can expect to continue using it for the long-term.
