It's some chemotherapy regimes (not all) that cause hair loss, not cancer itself. Hair sometimes grows back curly - it's known as 'chemo curl' - and sometimes grows back a different colour. My hair was curly when it grew back, but is straight now - I don't know if that's just because of the weight of it as it's long again now; perhaps if I cut it short I'll see that it;s still curly. My hair is thinner and fluffier than it was before chemo; I had very thick hair so it doesn't really matter. It's healthy and in good condition. Same colour.
