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!
This was interesting and relevant to me. I suffered hair loss as a result of docetaxil chemotherapy treatment. It was an expected side effect but still devastating to my identity as a woman as I have always had shoulder length hair which was my pride and joy. The support programme provided information which made me accept that my hairloss would not be forever. I now have a very short 'pixie cut' and am hoping that I can once again grow my hair long!

Very easy to follow helpful advice and information. Easy to digest and in easy to read bitsize emails. I have a far better understanding of what my hair needs and does not now.

What an extraordinary programme that was so relevant for me and helped me so much during this time, learning new things and tricks about losing hair. Now I have seen visible results in my hair that improved very well. I don't even need a GP any more to tell me what to do. Thank you talkhealth.

Wow so amazing that all the little things you can do and have made such a difference. Honestly I was very sceptical about it but the bits that I found relevant were so easy. A happy hair day more often.

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.

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!
