 Hair Loss Workshop

As part of the Leeds Cancer Support service, we also run a Hair Loss Workshop where you will receive professional advice, guidance and support from our Hair Loss Team. You will also have the chance to ask any questions and share any concerns  you may have about losing your hair.

At this workshop you will learn:

  • How to look after your hair and scalp before, during and after cancer treatment
  • How to care for your wig
  • How to use cosmetics to create eyebrows and apply eyelashes
  • About hair regrowth and what to expect
  • How to look after your new hair
  • The best ways to wear hats and scarves

The workshops take place on the 3rd Wednesday of each month, 10.30am - 12.00pm at the Sir Robert Ogden Macmillan Centre
