‘HeadStrong’ is a free hairloss support service for anyone affected by cancer, within the Macmillan Info & Support Centre at Dennistoun Library, fortnightly on Thursdays from 1pm – 3pm.

The HeadStrong service can help prepare you for the possibility of losing your hair because of cancer treatment. At a private appointment, trained volunteers will talk about how to look after your hair and scalp before, during and after treatment. You can also also see how to make the most of wig alternatives by using scarves, hats and other headwear. This practical session aims to find out which styles suit you best to make sure you leave feeling confident that you’ve found something that works for you.
