That said, this chemo thing is no joke, I apologize for the delay in posting.
It’s difficult to find the time or the energy to write and all I seem to look for 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.
I am constantly exhausted and it seems that life never slows down. I am making an attempt to keep some semblance of my normal life and I am still working busy aside from chemo and recovery days. Furthermore, thank you very much for sharing the headscarf tutorials! For example, another option is to get hats with hair, or wigs, attached to them. With that said, this site sells some really great ones. Anyways, they don’t work all year round but winter and fall they’re great. Just keep reading! Own it and your confidence will radiate.
Make an appointment at a wig salon and go in with an open mind, only after you’ve done your research.
So that’s your chance to get a tally new persona and let a brand new side of you shine through.
Trying on multiple wigs might be fun and it will give you a chance to see yourself in a brand new light. Actually, maybe you love that short sassy redish look or the long blonde curls. Wig shopping is a process and I don’t seek 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. You can not pull your hair back on these wigs since the edge will show.
Let me ask you something. Lace Front Wig or Basic CapWig?
The poser I have found with these wigs is that 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.
Lace front wig with bangs will resolve this issue and make the hairline seem more natural. Because 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. Then, ultimately, in my opinion it depends on the style of the wig. It’s next to impossible to tell the major differences in the pictures, By the way I have included pictures of both on me below. Nonetheless, I have tried both and I have to say for me, I believe the basic capwigs work better. 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.
Actually the full capwigs besides have a thick edge along the hairline and are not meant to blend as naturally.
I have found my two short wigs to be my favorites, By the way I never thought I liked short hair on my face shape.
Another plus to the shorter styles is they get less tangled and are cooler to wear. Now on to wigs, that I have found to be so fun! I did that with my first wig and I rarely wear it. Now look, the long wigs can be hot and get very tangled. My biggest suggestion when picking a wig is NOT to pick one that looks like your hair was before chemotherapy. So, carry on leave the hair loose around the ears to hide the edge of the wig. Seriously. I found it was easier to embrace the new me in a brand new look rather than try to wear a cut color that mimicked the old me. Then again, I had long brownish hair prior to chemo and every time I put on that long brownish wig, I find myself saddened and frustrated striving to make the wig look like my old hair.
In any circumstances please do not rule out any styles until you give them a try.
One way to cool down and minimize tangling is to pull the long wiginto a low bun or twist.
You can easily try out that hairstyle or color you never had the guts to try before. Thing is, they won’t make you look exactly like you did before chemo as you’ve changed and you’ll see yourself differently, the wigs these days are amazing and they look like real hair. On p of this, I used this trick when I was in a friend’s wedding and wanted to match the other girls’ updos. Therefore, I was inspired by this article about Clare Bowen from the show Nashville who recently cut off her long beautiful hair.
I was aiming to write another post about hair loss for quite a while.
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.
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. One quote from this article that really hit home for me wasSelfesteem takes a lot longer to grow back than hair. Fact, flat or Volume.Some synthetic wigs are created with pre made volume. They are easier to style and look more natural I believe. Did you know that the last thing you look for is a wig so thin, your bald head shows through the wefts. Remember, the wigs that appear more flat tend to be thinner and are harder to style and amp up. Overall I love the volumized wigs being that you have more hair to work with, sometimes this volume is that gives the look of volume.
While beautiful make me feel like I’m screaming I HAVE CANCER, hats, and headscarves.
Because check the tags to ensure they are washable. Being forced to change your appearance can make you feel like a victim. Now let me tell you something. They have not been my go to resource, I still occasionally wear head scarves for comfort and warmth. I don’t seek for strangers to know I have cancer and I don’t seek for to draw attention to myself in that way. We as women struggle with hair loss, as long as hair is tied to our identity, as I mentioned in my last post about hair. That’s a fact, it’s our armor and protection from the world. I decided to own this experience and take it as an opportunity to add a brand new look to my repertoire.
I received ns of beautiful scarves from mine.
Another place to look is thrift stores.
9 times out of 10, To be honest I want to pass. Losing your hair can make you feel naked and exposed. Know what guys, 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 am working on my ‘self confidence’ and rocking the bald head at times. Although, hair is an ol for quickly changing our appearance to stay current with the recent fashion trends and it helps us fit in. They have lots of beautiful gently used scarves.
