There are many practical ways to cope with hair loss. They do not make the problem disappear, but they can make life a bit easier for you during this difficult time.
Some hospitals have staff who can show you how to wear different types of headwear. They can also give you ideas and tips on how to cope with hair loss. You can ask your nurse whether there is anyone who can help you. You could also ask a professional hairdresser for advice.
Some hospitals run hair and beauty programmes for people affected by cancer. Your nurses should be able to tell you if your hospital has these programmes, or if there are any nearby. Most of these programmes are for women, but the Look Good Feel Better For Men website has information for men affected by cancer. It includes practical tips on coping with hair loss.
