I wish there were something to say to make you feel better about the hair loss. I have no experience with it.
Many years ago I had the bright idea to permanent my waist length hair. I ended up with an enormous afro. A carful of young Hispanic men pulled up next to me on the street attempting to pick me up until they saw that I was too damn old.
Next day I cut it all off - less than an inch long - and wore hats until it grew in. Most people assumed I had lost my hair to chemo but I had lost it to chemicals. LOL
The hats looked great. I can't usually wear them but hairless they looked great.
Play with turbans and scarves and baseball caps and whatever appeals. Have fun with it. It won't bring your hair back but will make the loss a little more bearable.
