Hair Loss Help at Home - Support During Coronavirus
Launched March 2020 - Hair Loss Help at Home is a FREE new specialist hair loss support service by charity Cancer Hair Care. Especially developed for cancer patients who are unable to access services in person due to the Coronavirus situation (COVID-19). Our service is easily accessed remotely from home or hospital, via phone or email.
Our Cancer Hair Care - NHS Clinical Specialists are leading the project along with a dedicated team of trained experts and volunteers.
We care about you and are here to support you before, during and after hair loss.

It's helpful if you can include your address and a telephone number so we can call you and discover what items might be helpful in your FREE pack.
Our hair loss information website has hundreds of pages of expert guidance: www.cancerhaircare.co.uk
We look forward to supporting you.
Enhanced Hygiene Protocol
At Cancer Hair Care we regularly work within NHS chemotherapy clinics and therefore are used to following hygiene procedures. Due to the Coronavirus situation we have taken enhanced measures with our packs.
Your FREE support items are packed by a trained member of our team using the following hygiene protocol:
- Freshly clean surface is used to pack
- Packer starts with the NHS 6 STEP hand washing technique prior to packing
- Packer wears clean fresh disposable or freshly washed gloves
- Packer wears disposable or freshly clean face mask
- Items are packed into a clean new hygienic bag
- On receiving your items we recommend that you wash you hands immediately and wash all washable items (e.g. Headwear) and wipe all wipeable items
*FREE Support packs whilst stock last and within limitations of delivery services. Supply to England and Wales is our primary objective. Due to unprecedented times please feel free to contact us from anywhere within the UK and we will do our best to help. As of 13.03.2020.
