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 a great weekly support programme, received by email although you're also able to access the materials afterwards which is really useful. Great collaborations with various charities and leading professionals too.

Found it interesting and informative. Not all parts of the programme were relevant to me personally, but it helped to know I wasn't the only one suffering from the condition. The programme confirmed what the health professionals had told me and has made me more prepared for the time when I may have to accept I need a wig.

I was feeling a bit embarrassed about how thin my hair was becoming and how much seemed to come out especially when blow drying. I decided to join your hair loss programme as a means of gaining information and eventually confidence to tackle any problems. I found much, but not all, information relevant to me and was helped enormously. I now use a special shampoo for sensitive scalp and dry my hair on a warm setting. I also don’t wash my hair as often as I did. I would recommend the hair loss programme to anyone who suffers and needs help.
