Other people’s reactions to your hair loss can sometimes be difficult to cope with. They may feel uncomfortable and not know what to say. It can help if you talk about it first. Once they hear you talking about your hair loss, they may 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.
If you have children, you may worry that they will be scared if they see you without hair. But children usually cope well when they are told about any changes to your appearance in advance.
