Breast Cancer and Hair – Episode 02

Posted by victoria on 30 July 2021

The deeply personal relationship women have with their hair is discussed in this episode of “And Then Came Breast Cancer”. Host Victoria Derbyshire talks to Nicky, Nicole and Natasha about how they dealt with the effect chemotherapy had on their hair, and she gets advice from cold cap expert Claire Paxman. They talk about the psychological trauma of facing up to hair loss and Victoria reveals that losing hers was more difficult than having a mastectomy.
