Wigs can be fun! Chemo is NOT fun!
Chemo therapy can rob a woman of energy, appetite, and strength, but it doesn’t have to take away her self-confidence!
If an oncology doctor or nurse predicts hair loss, the best approach is to prepare for the inevitable in phases before you even start treatment. Schedule a free consultation with an experienced and professionally trained stylist to avail yourself of her knowledge. By beginning the process before the hair is completely lost, the consultation will lessen your anxieties. Simply voicing your feelings and concerns to another person who has extensive experience with such a difficult situation is very comforting.
Christine Hanson’s affiliation with the American Cancer Society’s “Look Good Feel Better” program began in 1995. During that time she was a frequent speaker at numerous events relating to hair loss and living with a devastating diagnosis. She was twice awarded the ACS award for patient courage for her own battle with a brain tumor. She was the first ACS volunteer in Alameda County, and started the “Look Good Feel Better” program in Arizona.
Also, while Chris can offer custom wigs for chemotherapy clients, she also carries every fashion wig line available, and can match or beat Internet prices on this type of wig. Since the hair loss from chemotherapy is usually temporary, and the patient may not feel up to re-styling a human hair wig, the synthetics are often a good choice.
Cancer treatment is not the only reason women lose hair. Alopecia Areata, a condition that is related to an over active immune system can cause partial or complete hair loss. There are many other conditions that happen in life that make wigs an acceptable alternative to wearing hats or scarves. We have accounts with every major supplier in the USA and can find the right wig for you! All wigs need some “customization” to make them look as natural as possible and Chris not only gives the lowest internet pricing on the wigs she sells, but will also make the initial needed changes free of charge. She can also repair, reset, and in many cases revitalize synthetic wigs, and color human hair wigs.
