Wig options for cancer survivors

“The hardest part is loosing your hair because it’s a sign that your ill,” explains Andra Ignas, Breast Cancer Survivor and Wig Recipient.

When someone is diagnosed with cancer, what changes can they expect to see? Rachel Mahaney outlines what the first steps are, when it’s time to consider a wig, plus we learn who is a good candidate for a wig.

There are three different types of wigs, completely synthetic, a synthetic blend and a natural human hair. There are many different price points, maintenance, which kind is right for which person (for instance, someone with chemotherapy wouldn’t be recommended a human hair wig because they are the most expensive and their hair will eventually regrow. However someone with alopecia who will spend their life without hair would be a great candidate for a natural hair wig.) Also we learn about styling, product use, etc.
