If you are a cancer patient, Wigs.com wants to help you be able to keep your focus on healing, instead of the emotional difficulties that can come with hair loss due to chemotherapy or radiation treatments.
According to the American Cancer Society, chemotherapy damages hair follicles, causing hair loss, but it usually grow back. With radiation treatment, there is often scalp hair loss and a possibility of permanent loss.
Hair loss can begin as early as two weeks into treatment. It’s recommended to have a wig before starting chemo or radiation. Losing one’s hair can be devastating, but a natural-looking and beautiful wig can help ease the loss. The right wig can make you feel like yourself again. There are so many different types of wigs, depending on need and lifestyle. Through cancer treatments and hair loss, scalps can become tender. Because of this, monofilament wigs are the best choice for cancer patients.
These wigs include a thin transparent mesh cap to allow a more natural look. This mesh shows the wearer’s natural skin tone and allows for parting versatility, along with the illusion of natural hair growth. It also keeps the hairpiece well ventilated and cool for tender scalps. Read on for our list of beautiful monofilament wigs fro cancer patients.
