Chemotherapy Hair Loss

Chemotherapy can have both emotional and physical side effects. Hair loss is one of the most common to prepare for and you may decide to wear a wig or different types of head coverings. Your scalp may be extra sensitive and even itch, tingle or feel warmer than usual.

Bamboo Headwear

Bamboo headwear is a popular choice for chemo patients because of its comfort – not only is it soft and gentle on the scalp, but it’s also naturally antimicrobial, hypoallergenic and highly absorbent. Additionally, bamboo adjusts to temperature changes, keeping you warm in cold weather or cool on warmer days.

The Softie Collection by Jon Renau offers fashionable bamboo headwear in fun prints and colors. Check out our customer favorites:
