A wig is not just a wig when it comes to the woman with hair loss. It’s not being worn for reasons of fun and fashion, like many of the varieties seen in wig shops. 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 of them:
Fit and feel
The fit of the wig is of vital importance for reasons of comfort and security. That’s why custom fitting by a professional stylist 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 will prevent the wig from shifting on your head and will make it secure for you to wear in almost any circumstance.
The feel is also important. A scalp bared by chemotherapy can often be tender and sensitive. And as hair begins to grow in, the scalp can also become itchy. Therefore, it’s advisable to choose a wig that’s created from only the softest, silkiest and lightest materials..
In our experience, most women want to keep their hair loss their secret. If that’s the case, 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. It’s very helpful to bring recent photos of yourself when choosing a hair replacement option. You might also want to cut off a small lock of your own hair before you lose it to match its color precisely. Your stylist can do this for you prior to treatments.
The more closely your wig matches your growing hair, the more comfortable you’ll feel wearing it and the more confident you’ll feel about yourself.
