It’s heartbreaking enough for any woman to be diagnosed with cancer. And for some women, the thought of losing their hair due to chemotherapy can be as devastating as the cancer itself.
Often, chemotherapy patients will disguise their hair loss using fashion wigs, which often don’t suit their unique needs. Women who lose their hair through chemotherapy generally have very tender, sensitive scalps that can be irritated by the harsh materials in fashion wigs. Also, fashion wigs purchased through a catalog or online retailer may not fit properly, and can be loose or may shift. Finally, fashion wigs require a lot of upkeep, an unrealistic task for women undergoing chemotherapy.
