Coping with Hair Loss During Treatment

Think about how you want to address any questions

You may also want to be prepared for the inevitable questions from those around you such as family, friends, and coworkers. Some people will try not to bring up the topic of hair loss, while others may want to discuss it in depth. Panzer explains a good approach to this situation, "acknowledging the fact that you are losing your hair due to medical treatment can feel empowering. However, if you are uncomfortable answering questions, give a simple response that created boundaries and people will follow your lead: 'This is a tough subject for me to talk about. I will let you know if and when I'm ready to do so.'"
