Another question isSo the question is this. Highlights or Monotone?
I can’t stress this enough!
I have had so many people compliment me when I am wearing my wigs. Choosing a wig with highlights make it appear more real and add dimension to your look. Look for a wig with highlights Therefore if you need the wig to look natural. Remember, highlights all the way.
They are usually blown away to learn that they are not my natural hair.
The last thing you seek for is a wig so thin, your bald head shows through the wefts.
Overall I love the volumized wigs as long as you have more hair to work with, sometimes this volume is I think. Actually, flat or Volume.Some synthetic wigs are created with pre made volume. Normally, the wigs that appear more flat tend to be thinner and are harder to style and amp up. They have lots of poof to them, that gives the look of volume. Now this site sells some really great ones. They don’t work all year round but winter and fall they’re great. Thank you a lot for sharing the headscarf tutorials! That is interesting. Another option is to get hats with hair, or wigs, attached to them. I am constantly exhausted and it seems that life never slows down.
Now this chemo thing is no joke, I’m quite sure I apologize for the delay in posting.
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.
It’s a problem 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. For example, 80 of the time, Actually I want to pass. A well-known fact that is. I received ns of beautiful scarves from mine. Hair is an ol for quickly changing our appearance to stay current with the recent fashion trends and it helps us fit in. Losing your hair can make you feel naked and exposed. Oftentimes for those of you who need to go the head scarf route, By the way I would suggest you first check with your cancer hospital resource center.
While beautiful make me feel like I’m screaming I HAVE CANCER, hats, and head scarves.
So it’s our armor and protection from the world.
They have a lot of beautiful gently used scarves. I don’t need strangers to know I have cancer and I don’t look for to draw attention to myself in that way. Since go on and check the tags to be sure they are washable. For awesome scarf tying tutorials take a glance at YouTube, specifically this channel by Zukreat. It is they have not been my go to resource, By the way I still occasionally wear ‘headscarves’ for comfort and warmth. I decided to own this experience and take it as an opportunity to add a brand new look to my repertoire. Now let me tell you something. Another place to look is thrift stores. To be honest I want to shed light on the majority 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 was working on my self confidence and rocking the bald head at times. We as women struggle with hair loss, as hair is tied to our identity, as I mentioned in my last post about hair. Being forced to change your appearance can make you feel like a victim. Consequently, I have organized the most important information into six categories and I hope you find it helpful.
Make an appointment at a wig salon and go in with an open mind, when 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.
Maybe you love that short sassy redish look or the long blonde curls. Own it and your confidence will radiate. Just think for a moment. Trying on multiple wigs going to be fun and it will give you a chance to see yourself in a brand new light. It is your chance to acquire a completely new persona and let a completely new side of you shine through. My wigs were all synthetic being that they are easier to care for. I have also heard that human hair wigs are hotter on your head, that is a major downside to wigs all in all. Less washing, etcetera like real hair. Now regarding the aforementioned fact… I actually didn’t style them much, I just chose short styles that I could brush, shape and go, with an intention to be honest though.
Did you know that 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.
Good luck with chemo!!!! I’d look for a wig shop in your area and go try both. It’s the inside that matters, This experience stuck with her and she wanted young girlsgoing through hair loss to realize that it is not what’s on the outside that makes you beautiful. I’ve been aiming to write another post about hair loss for quite a while. I was inspired by this article about Clare Bowen from the show Nashville who recently cut off her long beautiful hair. For instance, one quote from this article that really hit home for me wasSelfesteem takes a lot longer to grow back than hair. Eventually, losing your hair forces you to confront problems of self esteem and work on yourself from the inside out. Which caused her to lose all her hair, as a child Sara battled nephroblastoma. It’s almost impossible to tell the major differences in the pictures, I have included pictures of both on me below.
Because you can tuck plenty of the hair back without it showing the wig edges, I have found full cap wigs with volume and bangs to be top-notch.
Lace Front Wig or Basic CapWig?
Full capwigs likewise have a thick edge along the hairline and are not meant to blend as naturally. Furthermore, I have tried both and I have to say for me, I believe the basic capwigs work better. You can not pull your hair back on these wigs as the edge will show. Basically the 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 believe it depends on the style of the wig. Lace front wig with bangs would resolve this issue and make the hairline seem more natural. The issue I have found with these wigs is that So there’s 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.
Now on to wigs, that I have found to be so fun!
You can easily try out that hairstyle or color you never had the guts to try before.
Go on and leave the hair loose around the ears to hide the edge of the wig. I did that with my first wig and I rarely wear it. I had long dark brown hair prior to chemo and any time I put on that long brownish wig, Actually I find myself saddened and frustrated making an attempt to make the wig look like my old hair. Also, the long wigs can be hot and get very tangled. I used this trick when I was in a friend’s wedding and wanted to match the other girls’ updos.
