Scheme which helps female cancer patients cope with hair loss to be extended

07.04.2008 in FEMALE HAIR LOSS

by Michelle Fiddler, Liverpool Echo

A SERVICE that helps female cancer sufferers cope with hair loss is being expanded in Liverpool.

Breast Cancer Care is expanding its HeadStrong service at the Linda McCartney Centre in the Royal Liverpool University Hospital.

HeadStrong gives tips on headscarves, hats and hairpieces to help reduce the impact of hair loss.

Clients are offered private and confidential hour-long appointments, and they can attend as many times as they want.

The charity is now looking for people to become HeadStrong volunteers. Full training will be given, so no prior experience or skills are needed.

All training and support will be provided by Breast Cancer Care, while the service will be managed by the Macmillan Cancer Centre, based in the Liverpool Royal University Hospital.

Sandra Metcalfe, a HeadStrong volunteer at the Macmillan Cancer Centre said: “Losing your hair is one of the most obvious side effects of cancer treatment and it can be a very distressing time.

“The HeadStrong service helps people to get their confidence back and I really enjoy being able to put a smile on someone’s face every day.”

To find out more about becoming a volunteer, or to get an application form, contact 0845 0771893 or e-mail nrc@breastcancer care.org.uk

CAUSES OF THINNING HAIR IN WOMEN

02.04.2008 in FEMALE HAIR LOSS

It is completely normal to lose some hair – about 100 strands – every day as a part of the hair growth cycle.

But if you feel your hair is becoming thinner, there are a number of reasons why, including the natural ageing process and hereditary hair loss. Women with thinning hair often think it’s due to something they’ve done. Whereas, in fact, sustained hair thinning in women is usually hereditary, so don’t blame yourself. It is only occasionally that there may be other causes, such as illness, diet and stress, which we’ll go through in this section. The important thing is for you to get a proper diagnosis of your particular thinning hair by seeing your Trichologist (call 0207 976 6868 for free advice).

Thin, fine or thinning hair?
These three terms are often used in the same breath when talking about thinning hair. However, they each mean something different.

Thin hair
If you have thin hair, it means you physically have a small number of hair follicles on your scalp. Blondes normally have the most hairs, around 140,000, with redheads having fewer, around 90,000.

Fine hair
Although blondes have more hair follicles, the actual diameter of their hair strands are normally smaller, making it appear ‘fine’. Hairs that are coarse have wider, ‘thicker’ hairs.
 

Thinning hair
When hair is thinning, it means that the scalp is in the process of losing hair. This can be due to a variety of conditions. The most common cause is androgenetic alopecia (hereditary hair loss). If you are experiencing thinning hair, we can help you pinpoint the cause in our Root of the Problem section.

True or False?
“Women lose around 20% of their hair between 20 and 50 years of age”
 

True. Between 20 and 30 years of age, you have an average of 615 hair follicles per square centimetre but by 50, this number falls to 485 per square centimetre.
