If you are a cancer patient undergoing chemotherapy, you will most likely notice hair loss between 10 days to 2 weeks after your first treatment.
Once you start losing your hair, we suggest that you cut it very short or even shave it off completely. Mentally, this allows you to take control of the situation and makes the hair loss process much easier. Since you should already have your wig by this time, you will have something to put on as soon as you trim your hair off. You should continue to care for your scalp with a mild shampoo and conditioner to help circulation and prevent the skin from drying. If your scalp is sensitive, you can apply a facial moisturizer to ease the irritation, however, regular body lotion is too oily for use on the scalp.
The best thing to do at this point is decide how to deal with hair loss before your first treatment. If you think wearing a wig is right for you, spend some time reviewing the wigs on this site, bookmarking the styles and colors you'd like so you'll be ready to order when the time comes.
Once you see how natural your new wig looks on you and how unbelievably comfortable it is, you'll stop worrying about your hair and use your energy on healing. Here, at Yaffa Wigs USA, we are always available to address any concerns that you may have. Please use our contact us page.
