Wigs For Cancer Patients
You probably have never thought much about wigs for cancer patients, except if you or someone you know has been through chemotherapy before. Is there a salesperson at a store that you frequent who seems to always being wearing a new wig? If so, depending on how comfortable you feel around her, you may come right out and ask about her hair-do. She may inform you that she has gone through chemotherapy and is wearing a wig. Other than a scenario like this, you may not think about these things often.
For reasons unknown, many people think wigs for cancer patients are some big deal that require hundreds upon hundreds of dollars. This need not be the case at all. In fact, the hospital can tell you about wigs that are much cheaper than what online retailers charge. These wigs still have the same, natural look their more expensive counterparts have.
Unfortunately, you may find yourself thinking about wigs for cancer patients because you have cancer yourself and are (or will be) going through chemotherapy. In this case, wigs for cancer patients will probably be a big thing on your mind.
Most women love their hair, even those who have never been frequent visitors to a hairdresser. It makes them feel feminine in a way that nothing else can and makes them more confident. They hear the phrase “your hair looks healthy” and automatically associate healthy hair with a healthy body. Women who feel this way and lose all of the hair on their body from cancer become terrified. Not every female cancer patient suffers from complete hair loss; the kind of drug used in chemotherapy plays a major role in how much hair is lost.
If someone in your family or one of your friends has cancer and is losing their hair, you need to stay upbeat in front of them. Acting depressed around them is not helpful, whatsoever. If you feel depressed over their condition, put off from seeing them until you feel more positive. If it is you going through chemotherapy, this applies to you as well; as a positive attitude can do nothing but help!
Those looking to cover up hair loss from chemotherapy have a couple of options. There are wigs made synthetically, others made of natural, human hair, and others that combine the two. Natural hair tends to come from two sets of people–Asians, who have the thickest hair at the cheapest price and Europeans, who have finer, but pricier hair.
A synthetic wig is another option. They tend to be more affordable, are easier to dry, and do not require as much maintenance as natural hair.
Being prepared is crucial for those losing their hair from a medical problem. Begin your search as soon as possible, before you begin feeling too sick to do so. Look for the wig that will bring joy to your life when your hair starts to fall out.
A wise idea is to begin wearing the wig before you notice your hair falling out. This way, you will be used to how it feels on your head once the hair does come out. You may be surprised at how many comments you will receive about the colour, length and style of your faux hair!
