“Hair loss can lead to massive changes in the way you perceive yourself personally and socially, at home, at school and at work. Those who do not and have not suffered from hair loss have very little understanding of the impact it can have on someone.
I have learned over the years that getting that right wig is only a small part of the solution. But to be able to deal with the psychological impact on ones self-image and self-confidence when faced with hair loss, whether its due to hair thinning, female pattern baldness or chemotherapy/radiotherapy, is a huge part of dealing with hair loss.
With over 20 years, listening to my clients on how they approach hair loss and my knowlegde and understanding, enables me to be able to help and provide my clients with the skills, techniques, hints and tips of wearing and maintaining their wig and most importanly, advise on how you can take back control your self confidence and self image.” Laura Harris

Chemotherapy is the term used to describe medicines that will treat cancer with chemicals (drugs). Chemotherapy targets all rapidly dividing cells – healthy cells as well as cancer cells. Unfortunately, some types of Chemotherapy can have some unwelcoming side affects. Hair loss or thinning can be one of those.
Chemotherapy works by attacking cancer cells in the body. This process is designed to destroy and eradicate the cancer. Because this treatment circulates in the blood stream it means that other normal healthy cells in the body can also be affected, therefore hair cells are affected.
When the sensitive hair bulb that holds the hair root in place is attacked it affects the hair in different ways. You may notice once treatment starts your hair can become brittle, dry and lifeless. Thinning and/or falling out, which result in the hair loss may also happen. It is a temporary disruption to your hair. Once treatment that incurs hair loss has stopped, hair nearly always grows back after Chemotherapy treatment.
