Hair loss is just one of the many terrible things that comes with a cancer diagnosis and chemotherapy. For women diagnosed with breast cancer, hair loss due to chemotherapy can harm their self-esteem and own perceived femininity. A wig, although a small consolation in the large scheme of things when it comes to cancer, can do a lot to help make a woman feel like herself again.
Here are some of the positive reasons to wear a wig, from Cancer Hair Care:
- Look & feel good – Hair is just one of the many ways we express our individuality, and for most people, styling it is part of our daily routine. So when our image is altered by hair loss, a wig can help you to continue with a look that feels comfortable and familiar. Most people who wear one agree that when they look good it helps them to feel better!
- Experiment with new styles – Do blondes, brunettes, or redheads have more fun? Now is your chance to be as daring as you want when it comes to your hairstyle! While it shouldn’t be too difficult to find a wig that replicates your own hairstyle if that’s what you prefer, you can also have fun trying out new looks and styles.
- Extra time in bed – At the end of the day, you can place your wig onto its stand overnight and when you wake up, it’s all ready to go in the morning. Most synthetic wigs are easy to take care of, only need washing occasionally and are left to dry naturally, returning to their style with very little effort needed from you. No need to get up half an hour early to wash and style your hair!
- Take control – If you’re upset by hair loss, then wearing a wig can help you take control of the situation. You decide what style, make, color and texture wig you wish to wear. Wigs and hairpieces have advanced tremendously in the past few years and the choices available to you are more numerous than ever.
