Wigs for Chemotherapy
Millions of people around the world are diagnosed with cancer every year. Fortunately, medical advancements are leading to longer survival rates and increased odds of remission for many types of cancer. The downside is that several cancer treatments, including chemotherapy and radiation therapy, can actually cause other conditions like hair loss.
While not as serious as cancer, hair loss can be incredibly debilitating, and it can cause stress and anxiety during a time in your life when that’s the last thing you need. You should be focused on beating your cancer, not having to worry about what your hair looks like. That’s why the team at Continental Hair is here to help.
A wig is almost always the best choice for women who are going to be undergoing chemotherapy. Because there's not usually a long time between finding out you're going to have chemotherapy and when you start treatment, we try to go with a solution that can be created in a short time.
A wig from our large selection can be prepared the same day if stylists and technicians are available, although a timeline of around 1-2 weeks is more common. Since a custom made wig can take up to three months, this is not usually considered an acceptable solution when a wig is needed within weeks.
- A wig can be prepared within 1-2 weeks
- Other hair solutions can often take months to prepare, which may not fit your timeline
- A custom wig is usually not an option, since it may take 2-3 months to make
We carry a wide selection of ready-to-wear synthetic and human hair wigs, and these stock wigs can be cut, high-lighted or permed to create your own customized look.
Human hair wigs offer the most natural look, softest texture and most flexibility when it comes to styling, while our synthetic hair wigs trade off some of those benefits in exchange for greater affordability.
Every woman's situation can be different, which is why we provide a free, no obligation consultation to help you choose the option that best suits your needs!
Some people who experience hair loss associated with cancer treatments are content with wearing a hat or a scarf, or opting to go bald. If these options sound like the right option, we hope you’ll do what’s best for you.
But those aren’t the only solutions available to you. At Continental Hair, we use state-of-the-art technology to create human hair and synthetic wigs that are indistinguishable from your natural hair. A member of our team would be more than happy to provide you with a consultation, so feel free to contact us today to learn more.
