Wearing Wigs The First Time After Chemo

One of the most popular treatments for cancer is chemotherapy. While this is a treatment which can save your life, it is also very hard on your body. One of the most common side effects experienced by people undergoing chemotherapy will be hair loss.


Anyone who has lost their hair due to chemotherapy will normally feel much less confident than they normally would. In order to make themselves feel more confident a wig can be used. These wigs can make your life much more normal.


When choosing a wig to wear for the first time after chemo you need to make sure that it’s as comfortable as possible. Sometimes these wigs will be comfortable for a short time but can be very uncomfortable if being worn for ages.


You will probably want to choose a wig which is a similar style to your normal hair style. This will make the transition to wearing your wig very easy. You can start wearing this wig as soon as treatment begins even before you start to experience severe hair loss.

This should minimise the chances that people will actually notice what is happening and you should feel much better about yourself.

Dealing with Discomfort

When you first start wearing a wig it will feel very unnatural and it will take quite a long time to get used to. However, it is something that you need to put up with. If you do have any discomfort then visit your hair dressers for more information. They may be able to make adjustments or suggest other caps which might be easier to wear.
