How to Select the Best Wig & Lashes for Chemotherapy
Undergoing chemotherapy can be a challenging time for cancer patients. Hair loss is a common side effect of chemotherapy, which can cause emotional distress. Wearing a wig can help restore confidence and give a sense of normalcy during this difficult time. Here's how to select the best wig for chemotherapy.
Consult with a Wig Expert
Before purchasing a wig, it's important to consult with a wig expert. They will be able to guide you in selecting a wig that suits your face shape, skin tone, and lifestyle. A professional can also help with styling and fitting.
Choose a Wig Material
Wigs come in different materials, including synthetic, human hair, and heat-friendly synthetic. Synthetic wigs are cost-effective and low maintenance, while human hair wigs are more versatile and natural-looking. Heat-friendly synthetic wigs can be styled with heat tools but are not as durable as other options.
Consider the Wig Cap Construction
Wigs come in different cap constructions, including standard, monofilament, and hand-tied. Standard wigs have a sewn weft cap, while monofilament wigs have a sheer mesh cap that mimics the appearance of a natural scalp. Hand-tied wigs have a cap made entirely of individual hairs, creating a realistic look.
Pick the Right Wig Color
Selecting the right wig color is crucial to achieving a natural look. Consider your skin tone and eye color when choosing a wig color. It's also important to select a color that matches your natural hair color or a color that you feel comfortable with.
Try on Different Wigs
Once you have narrowed down your options, try on different wigs to see which one feels most comfortable and suits your style. Don't be afraid to experiment with different styles and colors until you find the perfect wig.
How to Select the Best False Eyelashes for Chemotherapy
In addition to wigs, false eyelashes can also help enhance your look during chemotherapy. Here's how to select the right style of eyelashes that will suit you.
Consider the Length and Volume
False eyelashes come in different lengths and volumes. Longer lashes can make your eyes appear bigger, while thicker lashes can add more volume and drama. Consider your personal preference and the occasion when choosing the length and volume of your lashes.
It is important to choose an adhesive that is gentle on your skin and eyes, as cancer patients may have sensitive skin and eyes due to treatment. Witchy Lashes offers gentle adhesives that are fantastic for every day wear, and very easy to apply.
Also important is choosing an adhesive that will last all day long without and have you covered for all weather conditions and tears of joy! All of our adhesives offer this.
Choose the Right Material
False eyelashes come in different materials, including synthetic, silk, and mink. Synthetic lashes are usually the most affordable, while silk and mink lashes look more natural and are more comfortable to wear. Choose a material that suits your budget and comfort level.
Pick the Right Shape
False eyelashes come in different shapes, including natural, dramatic, and winged. Natural lashes are ideal for everyday wear, while dramatic and winged lashes are perfect for special occasions. Choose a shape that complements your eye shape and enhances your overall look.
Try on Different Styles
Just like wigs, it's important to try on different styles of false eyelashes to find the perfect one for you. Experiment with different lengths, volumes, materials, and shapes until you find the style that suits you best.
