Hair Loss/Cancer > Wigs

American Cancer Society provides a product catalog for cancer patients. It contains also several wigs. They are inexpensive and if they get styled they look prety nice. You can request a catalog over the internet at www.cancer.org or you can call them at 1-800-850-9445.

This wig web site: www.acewigs.com has its products pricier, but a lot of beautiful styles to choose from.

Another wig web site can be found HERE. They carry wigs, hair pieces and wig accessories. Their web site has a page with videos.

In a near future I'll be researching more wig catalogs or stores. If any of you nation wide readers in the US know of any classy, reputable and client oriented specialized wig stores , let me know - I'll gladly put it on my web site, so people in need for a wig may benefit from your help.

Hairpieces

If you are thinking about buying a hairpiece you have to consider:

  • knowing a fine hair salon or wig business, that specializes in hairpieces
  • buying 2 hairpieces(you'll wear one, while the other is in your hair salon for "cleaning" every few weeks)
  • replacing them about every 3-5 years
  • investing in the best quality, so the hairpiece doesn't look like a rug
  • if you can, buy those that are made out of human hair of the same texture as your natural hair
  • have it color matched (you may have to have it highlighted with couple of color shades; tinting is possible only on human hair)
  • hair should be sewn to the mesh like material for a good breathability
  • the base should be made to match your head shape
  • being very careful while doing sports (especially swimming)

Make sure your hairpiece doesn't have too much hair (it will look very unnatural) and also hairpiece's hairline should be matched up with your natural hairline if possible. You'll secure it to your scalp with a surgical double-faced tape.

Are you interested in making your own hair piece all by yourself? I found a web site that specializes in selling a kit along with an educational video. Go to www.mhrw.com and you are on your way of having some hair.
