Do I Have To Lose My Hair During Chemo?
Maybe not! Maybe it’s just a matter of wearing a “Cold Cap” that numbs your hair follicles during chemotherapy . U.S. researchers are conducting research studies that put an experimental hair-preserving treatment to the test. It’s already being used across Europe and Canada. Near freezing temperatures seem to reduce blood flow in the scalp, making it more difficult for the cancer fighting drugs to reach and damage the hair follicle. While there are many types of cold caps sold around the world, the Food and Drug Administration has yet to approve their use on the U.S.
It’s hard enough to be dealing with cancer on a physical and emotional level, but to also have the outward physical sign of losing your hair and therefore showing others that you have cancer is sometimes more than some can handle. Having options like beautiful human hair wigs and hair pieces allows you to combat your illness while having an outer appearance that helps you feel more confident and have peace of mind that you can get through this gracefully.
Make an appointment with one of our compassionate professionals to help you choose from the most natural looking human hair wigs that will make you feel like you again.
