Hair loss Support
Hair loss is one of the most well known side effects of cancer treatment and many people find hair loss the hardest part of going through cancer treatment because it's such a visible sign of the illness.
MacMillan Cancer Support have a section on their website that covers cancer hair loss and offers suggestions for emotional and practical support. They have also put together a very comprehensive booklet called 'Coping with hair loss' which covers all aspects of cancer hair loss which can be downloaded or ordered via their website.

Charities & Support Organisations
There are several organisations within the UK that offer help & support when dealing with cancer related hair loss.
HeadWrappers is a hair loss advisory service, focusing on alternatives to wigs and practical tips. Their aim is to help people look good and feel more confident about themselves as they undergo cancer treatments which may cause hair loss.
Headwrappers currently run individual and group online sessions, where they demonstrate how to tie scarves, discuss scalp care and talk about various types of headwear that is available. Our blog post gives a bit more detail about what happens in a group session. All of their support is free to access.
Headwrappers also have some great video tutorials on their website showing various ways to wear and tie chemo headscarves.
