Headstrong is run by Breast Cancer Care (BCC) who train and support all volunteers. This is because, as we understand it, Breast Cancer affected the largest number of people compared with other cancers years ago.
If you would like practical tips on looking after your hair and scalp, before during and after treatment, you can book a HeadStrong appointment. At your appointment you will be able to try on a range of hats, scarves, fringes and hairpieces in a comfortable and private environment. You also have the opportunity to buy selected items of stock.
Specially trained volunteers run the service and will show you how to tie scarves in a variety of styles, give you advice on how to deal with a sore and dry scalp, and talk through any concerns you may have about your hair loss.
This service is free and you can come as many times as you want - and you can bring someone along to give you a bit of support.
It's a good idea to make an appointment before you lose your hair so that you are prepared in advance and can see what is available for you.
