Hair loss is one of the side effects of chemotherapy and cancer drugs . They may cause mild thinning of the hair, partial hair loss or complete hair loss.

Dealing with cancer is hard enough without having to worry about losing your hair and your confidence.

If you are worried about hair loss then there are solutions to help you overcome this........

Ask about wigs before you start your treatment, so ythat you can match up your natural colour and texture of your own hair.

Or maybe try a new look completely and try a wig that is the look that you've alwys wanted!

Think about having your hair cut short before your treatment starts.

At night wear a hair net so that you don't wake up with hair on your pillow which may be distressing.

If your hair has already started to thin then.....

Only use gentle hair products

Avoid using hair colours or perms as this will damage the hair further.

Avoid using hair stylers like hair dryers, straighteners or tongs and pat your hair dry.


Not everyone fancies a wig as they can get quite hot in the summer so why not try a head scarf or hat ?
