Women’s/ Men’s Wig and Chemotherapy

If you have cancer and you are in a battle against it then hair loss can be an additional burden. If this is the case, it is highly suggested that a patient use a wig to somewhat feel good and regain his self-esteem.

Wigs are known to make patients have a natural look as well as a customized one according to the person’s preferences. The positive self image instilled by the wig is an aid for healing. However, that’s not all.

Being able to understand the process of chemotherapy as well its effects and the available options for the patients will be a relief not only for the patient himself but also for his loved ones. The medical treatment called chemotherapy will highly restrict cell growth thus hair loss will be evident as soon as 7-10 days after the first session and will be increased dramatically in 1-2 months.

It may damage the eyebrows and eyelashes as well. It is recommended to have a short hair right before the treatment to reduce stress due to change. After 4-6 weeks of stopping the treatment you can expect hair re-growth and return to thickness in 6 months.
