In brief: Varies

Depends upon the type of chemo and your body's resistance.
Hair on the head is usually first to go, and later hair around the genitals, eyebrows and lashes. There is a great unpredictability to this so discuss with your oncologist to get a better picture. Mostly, after chemo, it will grow back.
