Practical advice on choosing a wig after chemotherapy

1. It is better to choose and buy a wig before starting treatment. First, you can easily match the color and structure close to your natural hair. Secondly, it will be much more convenient to have a beautiful alternative at hand that will help hide baldness and allow you to quickly return to your previous lifestyle.

2. For the wig to look as natural as possible, it must have a scalp imitation parting. To do this, use a special material – monofilament, which visually matches the shade of the scalp. In addition, monopwigs allow you to model your hair and do partings in any direction, which is an important plus.

3. To lead an active lifestyle, play sports and always look great, you should choose wigs made from natural hair – they are more durable and undoubtedly the most beautiful. They can be dyed, curled, styled with a curling iron, and can be worn even after your own hair has grown.

4.  Wigs made of artificial fibers – kanekalon or thermal fibers – are cheaper. They lose in appearance to natural products, but significantly save time for styling. It is enough to wash the artificial curls and comb well – the product takes on its original shape and perfectly hides the absence of its own hair on the head.

5. Pay special attention to the base – the very hat from which the curls “grow”. The most comfortable option is a monopig with a transparent mesh, in which the hair is manually fixed, due to which the effect of natural hair growth is created. It is a lightweight, convenient, affordable option. The scalp needs to breathe. This is especially true for people after chemotherapy who often experience discomfort, flaking and itching of the skin. It is very important that there are no hard seams inside the base that will chafe.

6. What cannot be wrong is the size! The wig should fit snugly on the head, not dangle, not slide out. Rubber bands and special silicone strips are used as fixators. Too small size will crush, cause constant discomfort when wearing.

7. Carry out the first try-on of a wig together with an experienced specialist who will help you with the choice, teach you how to put on and wear false hair correctly. After putting on the product, shake your head well, bend over a couple of times. If you hide your hair under a wig, try it on in a special hygienic mesh.

By following these simple tips, you will be able to choose the most suitable wig and wear it in a way that is invisible and comfortable for you.
