Highlights or Monotone?
They are usually blown away to learn that they are not my natural hair.
Highlights all the way. Of course look for a wig with highlights So if you need the wig to look natural. Choosing a wig with highlights make it appear more real and add dimension to your look. I have had so many people compliment me when I am wearing my wigs. I can’t stress this enough! They have loads of poof to them, that gives the look of volume. I’m sure you heard about this. Wigs that appear more flat tend to be thinner and are harder to style and amp up. Then the last thing you seek for is a wig so thin, your bald head shows through the wefts. Flat or Volume.Some synthetic wigs are created with pre made volume. Overall I love the volumized wigs as you have more hair to work with, sometimes this volume is I reckon.
I’m aiming to write another post about hair loss for some time.
One quote from this article that really hit home for me ‘wasSelfesteem’ takes a lot longer to grow back than hair. Which caused her to lose all her hair, as a child Sara battled nephroblastoma. Anyways, losing your hair forces you to confront problems of self esteem and work on yourself from the inside out. This is where it starts getting very serious, right? I was inspired by this article about Clare Bowen from the show Nashville who recently cut off her long beautiful hair.
It’s the inside that matters, This experience stuck with her and she wanted young girlsgoing through hair loss to realize that it was not what’s on the outside that makes you beautiful.

Long wigs can be hot and get very tangled. You can easily try out that hairstyle or color you never had the guts to try before. Carry on leave the hair loose around the ears to hide the edge of the wig.
I had long light brown hair prior to chemo and nearly any time I put on that long brownish wig, I’m quite sure I find myself saddened and frustrated doing best in order to make the wig look like my old hair.
I did that with my first wig and I rarely wear it.
My biggest suggestion when picking a wig is NOT to pick one that looks like your hair was before chemotherapy. In any circumstances please do not rule out any styles until you give them a try. Seriously. One way to cool down and minimize tangling is to pull the long wiginto a low bun or twist. I know that 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. With all that said… I found it was easier to embrace the new me in a completely new look rather than try to wear a cut color that mimicked the old me. 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. Another plus to the shorter styles is they get less tangled and are cooler to wear. By the way I have found my two short wigs to be my favorites, I never thought I liked short hair on my face shape.
With that said, this chemo thing is no joke, Know what guys, I apologize for the delay in posting.
It’s pretty impossible 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 doing best in order to keep some semblance of my normal life and I am still working busy aside from chemo and recovery days. I am constantly exhausted and it seems that life never slows down. On p of that, you can’t pull your hair back on these wigs since the edge will show. Just keep reading! Ultimately, in my opinion it depends on the style of the wig. Let me ask you something. Lace Front Wig or Basic CapWig?
The significant 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.
And so it’s difficult to tell the major differences in the pictures, I have included pictures of both on me below.
I have tried both and I have to say for me, I believe the basic capwigs work better. Now look, 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. Usually, 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. On p of this, the full capwigs in addition have a thick edge along the hairline and are not meant to blend as naturally. Lace front wig with bangs will resolve this issue and make the hairline seem more natural. It’s the second most populous city in the state after Memphis.

Wig shopping is a process and I don’t need 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. Make an appointment at a wig salon and go in with an open mind, whenever you’ve done your research. Own it and your confidence will radiate. I have organized the most important information into six categories and I hope you find it helpful. I have also heard that human hair wigs are hotter on your head, that is a major downside to wigs actually. My wigs were all synthetic since they are easier to care for. Less washing, and all that stuff like real hair. Nonetheless, I didn’t style them much, To be honest I just chose short styles that I could brush, shape and go, with the intention to be honest though. I know that the synthetic styles keep the shape and style better than the human hair wigs.
Good luck with chemo!!!!
One downside is that I could not use heat styling ols on them.
