Hair loss is one of the most common side effects of chemotherapy for cancer treatment and we are here to offer reassurance, advice and guidance whilst caring for your hair before, during and after this challenging time.
We offer practical advice from the moment you are told you may lose your hair, through to cutting and styling your new hair as it begins to grow back, restoring your identity and confidence.
While the health service offers information on hair loss, we recognise that the solutions need to be tailored to you. Having a hairdresser with experience of how to manage hair during this time and also when it grows back, someone to talk to and discuss the many possible solutions, can be the first step to helping you on your journey to recovery.
Please note: You will need to register in order to start the programme. Please call us on 07732 086520 or Contact us.
The programme offers expert advice, support and up to 3 free visits
at a HAIR REBORN-appointed salon
We can either chat over the telephone or via a video link. We are here to provide reassurance, advice and support to patients before, during and after treatment has been completed. We’ll explain what may happen to your hair and scalp during treatment, how to prepare for scalp cooling for the best possible outcome, discuss new hairstyle options that that may help with managing hair loss, as well as options to consider such as wigs and scarves during your temporary hair loss and point you in the right direction. We will explain the HAIR REBORN programme and register you as a HAIR REBORN Guest and pass your details on to the allocated salon, who will then get in touch with you to arrange your first hair styling visit and subsequent visits thereafter.
This would be your first salon visit at least 8 weeks after chemo has ended. Your hair may be part lost/part re-growing, so would benefit from this first trim to tidy the hair in order to prepare for your new hairstyle. The stylist will advise when you’ll be ready for your next visit and arrange this with you.
This appointment would be 8-12 weeks after the Re-Start visit when your hair has grown sufficiently, to trim and shape your hair to get your new style underway. The stylist will talk through what they are doing in order to reassure you. At the end of this visit, your stylist will arrange your third visit with you.
This would be the final appointment in the programme, again approximately 8-12 weeks after the Step 3 appointment, leaving you with a new manageable hairstyle. The stylist will give advice and tips on managing your new hair, ongoing haircare advice, colouring advice. At this final appointment, we ask the guest to complete a feedback form. It can be completed at the salon or taken away, completed and emailed to HAIR REBORN.
This is a free confidential hair care service offered to those undergoing chemotherapy for cancer treatment from the age of 16 +. Those under the age of 18 years should be accompanied by a parent, guardian or supporter. Please note confirmation of treatment would be required to start the programme.
If you start the programme midway, we will be happy to accommodate you. Please call us on 07732 086520 or Contact us for further details.
