New hair growth after cancer treatment, guidance and tips

Earlier this year, we held an online session with support charity Cancer Hair Care, where Ovacome members were able to ask Clinical Director Jasmin Julia Gupta for advice and recommendations around hair, scalp and wig care. Following the session, the Cancer Hair Care team kindly put together a blog post with a list of the resources that were discussed in the session.
