Coping with hair loss

We understand that hair loss caused by chemotherapy can be devastating. If you’re looking for information, support or practical tips, our HeadStrong service can help you.

At a private one hour appointment, our trained volunteers will show you how to make the most of alternatives to wigs by using scarves, hats and other headwear. They can also provide practical tips about scalp and hair care.

HeadStrong can help you feel confident that you have found something that works for you and feel better informed on further sources of information both locally and from Breast Cancer Care.

How to book

HeadStrong is available at various locations throughout the UK. It is for anyone who has lost, or is likely to lose, their hair as a result of cancer treatment. You can make an appointment by contacting the centre directly. Take a look at our list of locations below and choose the best option for you.

We recommend that you book an appointment before you start to lose your hair so you are prepared and know what is available in advance. You can attend as many times as you like and you are welcome to bring along a friend or family member for support. 

 

You can find out more about breast cancer and hair loss on our information and support pages.
