What are the best wigs for Breast Cancer patients?

October 12th, 2023

There are many side effects associated with chemotherapy, but hair loss can often be one of the most traumatic for breast cancer patients. It’s a very personal decision to choose to wear a wig, a type of headwear or nothing at all while you undergo treatment. We understand there’s an overwhelming number of wig options available and the importance of feeling comfortable in your choice. To assist you, we have curated a guide to the most comfortable wigs for chemo patients. 

Synthetic Wigs

Synthetic Wigs are a great choice because of their affordability and low maintenance. Many customers going through chemo like to test the waters without jumping into a big investment. Synthetic fiber also has style memory and you don’t have to hassle with styling it daily, which makes it easier to maintain than human hair.
Monofilament Wigs
Monofilament Wigs are usually more comfortable for chemo patients because the materials inside the cap design are softer and less likely to irritate sensitive skin. They also provide the illusion of natural hair growth with each strand of hair tied onto the soft lace top design that mimics the appearance of the scalp. 
Hand-tied Wigs
Hand-tied Wigs offer incredible realism, a comfortable cap and lightweight design. The entire base is hand-tied, without the use of wefts that might be itchy for chemo patients. They often have lighter density which can make them more comfortable to wear. Unnatural looking hair should be the least of your worries during treatments and a fully hand-tied style is as natural as it gets. 
If you decide to shop for a wig, we hope this has been a helpful resource in finding one that not only provides utmost comfort but also boosts your confidence when wearing it.
