Cytoxan - how long does it take before your hair starts falling out?

On day 13 after 1st chemo, I asked same that question. She said she lost hers on day 14. My hair seemed firmly attached. The next day, day 14, my hair started falling out. I shaved my head two days later as I was losing a lot of hair each time I combed it. It took longer, well over a month, before I noticed lack of eyebrows and eyelashes. It may depend on which drugs you received. I had cytoxan and TAXOTERE or docetaxel.
