Talking to other people about hair loss
Other people’s reactions to your hair loss can sometimes be difficult to cope with. If you feel that they’re uncomfortable and don’t know what to say, it may help for you to raise the subject first.
Once they hear you talking about it, they’ll probably be able to offer you more help and support. For example, they may be able to help you choose a wig or hairpiece that suits you, or help in other ways.
Although you may feel that everyone will notice when you’re wearing a wig, you may find that people don’t even seem to realise that it is a wig. It’s very common these days for people to completely change their hair colour and style.
People often worry that their children will be scared if they see them without their hair, but children usually cope and adjust well if they're told about any changes to your appearance in advance.
