My wigs were all synthetic being that they are easier to care for.
The synthetic styles keep the shape and style better than the human hair wigs.
One downside is that I could not use heat styling ols on them. Nonetheless, all the best with chemo!!!! That said, I have also heard that human hair wigs are hotter on your head, that is a major downside to wigs all in all. Know what, I didn’t style them much, I just chose short styles that I could brush, shape and go, with intention to be honest though. Remember, less washing, and all that like real hair. I’d look for a wig shop in your area and go try both. Lace front wigs have a lace edge that is trimmed along your hairline and the base where the hairs attach to the lace is meant to blend with your scalp and natural hair.
Ultimately, I reckon it depends on the style of the wig.
The issue I have found with these wigs is that lots of us are aware that there is no hair to blend with the lace so the spot where the hairs attach to the lace seems to stand out more on my skin.
Actually a lace front wig with bangs would resolve this issue and make the hairline seem more natural. Besides, the full capwigs moreover have a thick edge along the hairline and are not meant to blend as naturally. Since you can tuck a lot of hair back without it showing the wig edges, I have found full cap wigs with volume and bangs to be top-notch. Consequently, I have tried both and I have to say for me, I believe the basic capwigs work better. Do you know an answer to a following question. Lace Front Wig or Basic CapWig? For instance, you can not pull your hair back on these wigs since the edge will show. That’s a fact, it’s a problem to tell the major differences in the pictures, By the way I have included pictures of both on me below. That’s your chance to get a brand new persona and let a really new side of you shine through.
Own it and your confidence will radiate.
Maybe you love that short sassy light red look or the long blonde curls.
Make an appointment at a wig salon and go in with an open mind, only after you’ve done your research. Wig shopping is a process and I don’t look for you to go in blind.Before you go shopping, do your research. I have organized the most important information into six categories and I hope you find it helpful. Trying on multiple wigs might be fun and it will give you a chance to see yourself in a tally new light. I was inspired by this article about Clare Bowen from the show Nashville who recently cut off her long beautiful hair. Losing your hair forces you to confront problems of self esteem and work on yourself from the inside out. Anyway, I am aiming to write another post about hair loss for some time. Which caused her to lose all her hair, as a child Sara battled nephroblastoma.
One quote from this article that really hit home for me ‘wasSelf esteem’ takes a lot longer to grow back than hair. It’s the inside that matters, This experience stuck with her and she wanted young girlsgoing through hair loss to realize that it ain’t what’s on the outside that makes you beautiful. They don’t work all year round but winter and fall they’re great. Another option is to get hats with hair, or wigs, attached to them. Now this site sells some really great ones. Thank you very much for sharing the headscarf tutorials! It’s next to impossible to find the time or the energy to write and all I seem to need to do is sleep.I guess that’s just cancer sometimes you just don’t have energy for anythingelse but survival and I am learning to accept that. Although, I am constantly exhausted and it seems that life never slows down.
I am doing best in order to keep some semblance of my normal life and I am still working full scale aside from chemo and recovery days. With that said, this chemo thing is no joke, By the way I apologize for the delay in posting. Highlights all the way. I can’t stress this enough! Look for a wig with highlights Therefore if you need the wig to look natural. They are usually blown away to learn that they are not my natural hair. Choosing a wig with highlights make it appear more real and add dimension to your look. On p of that, I have had so many people compliment me when I am wearing my wigs. Highlights or Monotone? I did that with my first wig and I rarely wear it. So, you can easily try out that hairstyle or color you never had the guts to try before. Needless to say, don’t rule out any styles until you give them a try. By the way I have found my two short wigs to be my favorites, Know what guys, I never thought I liked short hair on my face shape.
Hurry up and leave the hair loose around the ears to hide the edge of the wig.
Another plus to the shorter styles is they get less tangled and are cooler to wear.
I found it was easier to embrace the new me in a tally new look rather than try to wear a cut color that mimicked the old me. Basically the long wigs can be hot and get very tangled. Now on to wigs, that I have found to be so fun! I used this trick when I was in a friend’s wedding and wanted to match the other girls’ updos. One way to cool down and minimize tangling is to pull the long wiginto a low bun or twist. I had long light brown hair prior to chemo and almost any time I put on that long dark brown wig, I actually find myself saddened and frustrated striving to make the wig look like my old hair. However, my biggest suggestion when picking a wig is NOT to pick one that looks like your hair was before chemotherapy.
Now pay attention please. Now look, the thing is, they won’t make you look exactly like you did before chemo being that you’ve changed and you’ll see yourself differently, the wigs these days are amazing and they look like real hair.
We as women struggle with hair loss, being that hair is tied to our identity, as I mentioned in my last post about hair.
I received ns of beautiful scarves from mine.
Surely it’s our armor and protection from the world. By the way I want to shed light on the kinds of other resources available for those of you that haven’t worked up the courage to go bald yet or just don’t like that look on yourself, as much as I’ve been working on my self confidence and rocking the bald head at times. Normally, hair is an ol for quickly changing our appearance to stay current with the recent fashion trends and it helps us fit in.
75 of the time, Know what guys, I want to pass.
I decided to own this experience and take it as an opportunity to add a tally new look to my repertoire.
They have an awful lot of beautiful gently used scarves. Losing your hair can make you feel naked and exposed. While beautiful make me feel like I’m screaming I HAVE CANCER, hats, and ‘head scarves’. They have not been my go to resource, I actually still occasionally wear head scarves for comfort and warmth. Notice that being forced to change your appearance can make you feel like a victim. As a result, for awesome scarf tying tutorials take a glance at YouTube, specifically this channel by Zukreat. You see, for those of you who seek for to go the head scarf route, I would suggest you first check with your cancer hospital resource center. I’m sure you heard about this. As long as check the tags to be sure they are washable. Actually, another place to look is thrift stores. Generally, I don’t seek for strangers to know I have cancer and I don’t look for to draw attention to myself in that way.
