I've contacted several companies requesting discounts, free shipping or willingness to provide consultations for those losing their hair. Some generous companies already provide free products.

This can't grow and help others without your contributions. Please provide your comments on each of the companies if you order from them and PM me with new additions to the list.

I'm not working for any of the companies and I do not benefit financially from this.

(I am, however, suffering from empty-nest-syndrome so please allow me to distract myself while I await grandchildren that my children aren't ready to give me.)SmileKiss

I'm a newbie at all this, doing "research" for my upcoming hair loss. We haven't scheduled my actual date yet so all I know is that I'll start chemo in early June.

Anyway, I didn't see this mentioned anywhere so I wanted to add a product that I'll be using with whatever head coverings I go with. It's called Sun Guard laundry aid. You use it in your laundry and it adds UPF 30 to your garments which lasts up to 20 washes.
