myhairloss support programme
myhairloss provides 20 weeks of dedicated support, sent to you by email in bite-size chunks. Every week there is a PDF for you to download or print containing practical information about all things relating to hair loss, written by talkhealth and medical experts.
The average person has between 100,000 to 150,000 hairs and will lose between 100 to 150 on a daily basis. Hair loss, or alopecia, is a condition whereby individuals find themselves losing more hairs than this, with regrowth being stunted causing a noticeable loss of hair.
Some of the topics the programme covers include:
- Different types of hair loss
- Treatment options
- Psychological impacts
- Shampoo and conditioner advice
- Patient stories and hints & tips
- Latest research and much more!
There were so many things about hair that I wasn't aware of! Easy step-by-step information in bite-size sections.

I found the myhair loss programme was full of information which I would not have learnt otherwise. The information has helped me deal with what has been happening to my hair and where I can go for help, I can use this information to help other people who are experiencing the same hair loss. I can recommend the different organisations that can help them. Thank you, I never knew their was so much I did not know and help from organisations.

The details about different types of alopecia was very informative. Help regarding shampoos etc was not. Other information was not relevant to me though details on wig companies and so on might be if I ever get that bad, which I hope does not happen. However having such a programme where one can ask questions and feels that one is not alone as there are other sufferers helps a little.

This program has given my confidence back and in a way has made me feel proud to show off and not to try to hide my problem, I definitely found places that if I need their help in future I can easily tap into their networks. My confidence is back and as my wife told me on numerous occasions that the outside of my body is only there to keep the goodness inside, every person is different and just reading other stories can give you the confidence back. Living with hair loss has been with me for a long time and will be with me for the rest of my life so if I need help I know where to turn to, but I’m extremely grateful for the assistance that this program has provided me with.

The myhairloss programme provided useful weekly info-bytes on a wide range of hairloss related subjects. Even as a hair transplant surgeon, I found them interesting and informative.
Greg (Jun 19)
Very informative programme given in bite sized pieces. This programme is particularly helpful if you suffer from partial baldness and provides links to further articles and additional reading.
Deborah (May 19)
A very informative programme that helped me find some new tips on how to deal with hair loss, what to look for in hair products, and I also understand better the psychological effects it has on people, me included. Thank you very much for this programme!

Hilary (Apr 19)
Very supportive, full of useful interesting information and I don't feel alone with the questions I had.
Julie (Apr 19)
It was very comforting to read about other peoples hair loss and things to try. Also to learn about the various charities and companies /websites to get information.
It was very helpful in managing hair loss.
Steph (Apr 19)
I found it interesting but didn't feel that I gained much more insight than I already had (I have previously put a lot of effort into finding out about my hair loss problems).
Pam (Apr 19)
The programme was informative and helped me immensely with my traction alopecia problem. Would definitely recommend the programme to anyone concerned about hair loss.
Maggie (Mar 19)
The hair loss programme was very helpful to me. It told me about different causes of hair loss that I hadn't thought of before but most of all it made me realise I wasn't on my own and there were lots of people in a similar or even worse condition than me out there.
Hazel (Mar 19)
Very good, but it seems that most of the time, in my case, there in not much that can be done as it is part of the menopause and ageing.
