Wigs for Women from Headcovers
At headcovers.com, we know how important it is to look and feel your best even in the midst of illness. With all the things you have to worry about, hair loss shouldn’t be one of them. Our wigs for women have been carefully curated to provide you with options you’ll love to wear so that you can spend your time and energy elsewhere - feeling great, and looking fabulous.
When to Buy A Women's Wig If You’re a Cancer Patient
While timing isn’t everything (you can buy a wig any darn time you want), having a wig picked and ready to go before chemotherapy starts can help with the transition as your hair begins to fall out. Be sure to talk to your doctor about what type of hair loss to expect so you can plan for the physical changes that are to come. If total loss is in the cards, we recommend buying a wig early. After chemo starts, it can take just a couple of treatments before you’ll notice its effects on your hair. Many women find that having a wig waiting in the wings can dull the anxiety and mitigate the trauma of dealing with yet another physical sign of cancer.
What Type of Head Coverage Do I Need?
Your hair loss experience depends on the particular illness or condition you’re affected by. That’s why we have a variety of options at headcovers.com, from full coverage to hair extensions to partially covering toppers. If you’re new to the world of buying hair (sounds a little funny, we’ll admit), check out our Hair Topper and Wiglet Guide to determine what type of coverage will work best for you.
Wigs for Women: What Materials are Best?
Thanks to technology, there are lots of great materials available that produce extraordinarily realistic women's wigs. At headcovers.com, we offer four main types of wigs for women: synthetic, heat-friendly synthetic, human hair, and remy-human hair. Each material has its own pros and cons that should be carefully considered, because which one you choose will depend on your lifestyle and how much time and effort you want to devote to your ‘do. See our Synthetic vs. Human Hair cheat sheet to learn more.
How to Make Your Wig More Comfortable
We understand that comfort is paramount. If your scalp is extra sensitive, just the thought of putting something on your head may be enough to make you cringe. So at headcovers.com, we’ve got options. Our double monofilament and 100% hand tied wigs are our softest wigs for women, and will be less scratchy than classic wig constructions. If that’s not enough, try our Cushion Band Gel Headband. This handy dandy accessory is like a mattress pad for your head, making sure that the weight of the wig is evenly distributed and providing a cool padding to protect your skin from scratches or sores. Of course, another common route women take is purchasing a wig cap to act as a barrier between your head and the wig. We’ve got them in materials like cotton and bamboo to provide silky, breathable solutions to wig discomfort.
