Most women who are faced with hair loss opt for at least one wig and alternate wearing the wig(s) with hats and scarves.
Hair usually grows back about six months after chemotherapy ends. Your new hair may be curlier or straighter, thicker or finer—or even a new color. Usually this change is short term; with time your hair will very likely go back to the way it was before treatment.
After hearing they will lose their hair, some women rush out and buy a real hair wig.
Many regret it: In addition to being expensive, real hair wigs require a lot of upkeep. Synthetic wigs are much easier to maintain and they look and feel natural. With the money you save you can try different style synthetic wigs—even different colors. As one of our customers wrote:
All three of my “tlc”™ wigs look as good as the one I bought for $300! I bought each one in a different color. My husband thinks I look great!
