This booklet looks at hair loss and the effect it can have on you. It looks at how to care for your hair and scalp during and after treatment, the different headwear you may want to try (including wigs and headscarves) and how to recreate the illusion of eyebrows and eyelashes. There is also information on what happens when your hair grows back. Last reviewed January 2018; next review 2020.
Breast Cancer Care merged with Breast Cancer Now in April 2019. From October 2019 the new merged charity is called Breast Cancer Now.
However, lots of our patient information will continue to appear under the legacy brand Breast Cancer Care until new editions are produced. Please be assured that, whether the information you order or download is branded as Breast Cancer Care or Breast Cancer Now, the quality remains the same.
