Medical hair loss is caused by medical treatments such as chemotherapy and others. Normally it is a temporary condition-reversing itself once treatments stop-it can be very disconcerting to the woman who experiences it.
We specialize in helping women whose hair loss has been induced by medical treatments. We're aware and sympathetic to the challenges you're currently facing.
Though treatments cause a range of side effects that can be very difficult physically, none can be more psychologically and emotionally debilitating than the loss of your hair. In this information we'd like to offer you some advice on how you can minimize the effect of hair loss to boost your self-esteem and confidence on your way to recovery.
A wig is not just a wig.
A wig is not just a wig when it comes to the woman with hair loss. It is not worn for fun or fashion. It's not a whim, and certainly not something that you plan to wear for only a few hours while out on the town.
For medical hair loss, a wig serves to replace your hair-as authentically as possible-and restore your self-confidence. You should feel comfortable in it, and about it. Not only should you feel good about wearing your wig, you should look your best, as well. That's why there are many considerations you should take into account when choosing a suitable wig. Here are a few.
Fit and feel
The fit of the wig is vital for reasons of comfort and security. That's why custom fitting by certified "Recover with Confidence" professionals produces the most desirable results. Why?
The cap of the wig, the part that is directly in contact with your scalp, must conform to your scalp as closely as possible. This prevents the wig from shifting and makes it secure for you to wear in most circumstance.
The feel is also important. A scalp bared by chemotherapy is often tender and sensitive and as the hair grows the scalp can also become itchy. Therefore, it's advisable to choose a wig that's created from only the softest, silky as and lightest materials.
In our experience, many women want to keep their hair loss their secret. If so, you'll want to select a hair style and color that closely matches your hair before you begin your treatments. This way we can help by having your wig ready for you when you need it. Therefore, it's very helpful to bring recent photos of yourself when choosing a hair replacement. You might cut a lock of your own hair before you lose it to match its color precisely or your consultant can do this for you prior to treatments.
The most important factors about wearing a wig are feeling comfortable in it and feeling comfortable about it. The closer your wig matches your growing hair, the more comfortable you'll feel wearing it and the more confident you'll feel about yourself. So choose wisely, and carefully.
When selecting a wig you have many choices including the choice of not wearing a wig at all, instead, using a scarf or hat to cover your hair loss. There's no reason it must be an "either/or" decision. However, the fact remains, in many situations, scarves and hats are not appropriate. That's why the option of having a natural looking wig is so desirable to most women.
