There are many reasons why you must stay positive in your self-perception and the way you cope up with this new challenge in your life. You should tremendously love yourself and staying positive will help you fight the disease more efficiently.
There are many celebrities who endorse the bald look on TV, papers and magazines. This is simply ridiculous. There is no woman who wouldn’t want to look pretty, irrespective of her status, age, finance or physical condition. Hair is one aspect of a woman’s beauty which cannot be compromised.
You start to lose hair within two weeks of the first chemo session. At the same time, you would be fighting one of the scariest diseases known to mankind. This is not a good time when you should go philosophic about every earthly matter.
You need to take care so that your natural, lovely hair remains intact during this totally unwelcome phase of life. Your own perception should remain beautiful and not a victim who has limited days left.
First of all, you must realise that the hair loss from chemotherapy is temporary. You should need a cover for a few months only. Thus, there is no need to feel like everything is lost forever. Instead, you should find a decent wig for the time being. There are many dealers, brands and salons who sell special chemo wigs in UK and I would strongly suggest that you take your pick.
Chemo induced hair loss tend to be complete hair loss and not partial. Thus, you should choose a full wig. There are custom made wigs available as well which fits your scalp the best. However, these wigs take time to get ready and they are obviously costly. Wigs can be made from synthetic hair and real human hair and the real human hair wigs tend to be costlier. So basically, you get 4 types of wigs, ready-made or bespoke wigs, made from either human hair or synthetic threads. The cheapest would be a ready-made synthetic hair wig.
Whatever wig you choose, it should match your existing hair. Thus, check the style, colour and texture of the hair before choosing. You should also know how to take care of it. Washing the wig becomes necessary only after half a dozen wear and you can use shampoo to wash it. When not using it, you should put it on a mannequin or a special wig stand.
