When women are told they must undergo chemotherapy treatments, the first thing they immediately think about is losing their hair. Once treatment begins, women are forced to watch their hair fall out in clumps, and become depressed about being bald. Because of that depression, women are less likely to enjoy choosing a wig to wear during their treatment. This is why women should choose their wig before they begin their chemotherapy. Choosing a wig while still being in a positive state of mind will allow women to feel positive and strong throughout the entire chemotherapy process.
So how should you go about choosing your new wig before chemotherapy?
- Do your homework- Take your time to look at your wig options and prices. Some wigs tend to be higher priced than others, so be sure to crunch some numbers to determine if the wig is in your budget. Also consider how long you will be wearing your wig. If your chemotherapy treatment isn’t as extensive, you may only want a synthetic, while those experiencing a hair loss longer will want a human hair wig.
- Call your insurance- Talk to your insurance company about their policies. Some companies will help cover the price of a wig due to chemotherapy treatment. There are also times when a prescription will be required by the company in order to receive help.
- Check out styles- Don’t choose the first wig you see. Take the time to try on different styles and colors to determine the wig that suits you best. The up side of a new wig is the chance to express yourself differently than you normally would. Try out that new cut or color you would never dare try normally, who knows, you might go that route once your hair grows back!
