I have a love/hate relationship with my wigs! Wigs have come a long way but nothing compares to your own hair. It’s amazing it’s even possible a wig can be made out of your own hair (before you lose it) or others real hair. I tried many synthetic wigs that were extremely uncomfortable and I was constantly worried the thing was shifting on my head. Besides that, the synthetic hair would tangle and become brittle very quickly. When I got my real human hair wig it changed everything for me! I’m very grateful my husband pushed me to get one (I was hesitant because they are very very expensive) but even that wig was not very comfortable!
Everyone is different; some have no problem showing the world their baldhead, I was not!! It’s a personal decision and you won’t know how you feel until you get there. I was most happy when no one knew what I was going through. I certainly didn’t want anyone feeling sorry for me and looking back, I think I was kind of embarrassed to even have cancer! I still don’t believe it to this day!
+’s of wearing a wig: Easy to do your hair, it doesn’t gray, can change your look on a whim, no one has to know you have cancer.
-‘s of wearing a wig: VERY uncomfortable, expensive, you still have no hair when you take it off.
