Hair loss is a sensitive subject. Not everyone feels able to discuss their experiences with hair loss openly. A hair loss forum can provide a valuable support network in these circumstances.
Hair loss forums offer a place where those who are beginning their hair loss journey can look for the help they need. This can help them find the answers and treatments they are looking for. People who have been losing hair for a while can help newcomers find support and assistance.
Very often a dedicated forum can provide a place where people feel safe discussing their issues and asking for support from those who have already been through the same thing. They are a good place to share information and news about possible new treatments.
Here are some of the best hair loss forums with supportive members and reliable assistance for anyone experiencing hair loss.
If you are looking for an established, widely-used forum, Hair Site is the longest serving website for the restoration of hairlines aimed at both men and women.

Forums for underlying causes
Hair loss is sometimes caused by psychological or medical conditions. If you’re concerned your hair loss may be due to an underlying medical cause, you can find advice and information on the relevant forums.
Here are some forums related to common hair loss causes:
- Side By Side (Mind) — for mental health conditions like anxiety and depression
- HealthUnlocked — for weight loss

Why forums are useful
Finding a network of people to support you in your hair loss journey is invaluable for many forum users. But there are other reasons to turn to hair loss forums, too.
- Impartial — you’ll get lots of anecdotal ideas and advice that isn’t affiliated with a particular brand
- Coping mechanisms — hair loss can impact your mental health. Forums offer free, unique ways to cope with your hair loss
- Anonymity — using a forum means you don’t have to tell anyone who you are; you can share your story and your worries anonymously
