I never thought there would be a time in my life where I had to wear a wig. I've always loved my long hair texture, softness, color. It suited me. But then I was diagnosed with breast cancer, and I heard the dreaded words that I do not want to hear: chemotherapy.
The first thing that comes to mind of women when they hear "man" is that they will lose their hair. For many of us, our hair is synonymous with our identity. The loss makes us vulnerable, well, naked. I knew for me to go to work and in public on a regular basis with a bald head or just a hat or scarf was not going to cut it. I do not want the world to see me like that. So I made an appointment with a hair transplant center specializing in local chemotherapy and radiotherapy-related hair loss and alopecia (a genetic disorder that causes people to lose their hair).
I went to my appointment first before starting my chemotherapy treatments. It was, therefore, hair replacement specialists could look at my natural hair and try to copy when they made their custom command. Their recommendation to me was a lace front human hair wig. It is true that suited my hair hair now would be attached to a lace cap. The CAP is lightweight and breathable, and when you keep your skin as it looks like a scalp with hair coming out of him. This is ideal for someone who has a bald head. I accepted and my wig was ordered.
The second agreement was made within 14 days after my first treatment with chemotherapy, which is when the hair is really starting to fall. And my hero had before. My head was shaved and my new wig was placed on my head and style. I got the products to adapt to this as shampoo and conditioner leave.
It is very strange to wear a wig, but I fully agree that a lace front hair wig was a good choice for me. It seems natural enough, and he did not feel like it's suffocating my head. I was finally brave enough to come to work this week on my merchant account credit card processing company with her, and nobody noticed until now.
