Chemotherapy & alopecia

Hardly a day goes by that we do not get a call from someone who is suddenly facing the prospect of needing a wig either from the onset of alopecia or because of chemotherapy or radiotherapy.

With our years of experience in these matters, we have come to realise that, when such an occasion arises, the vast majority of people know very little about wigs and have no idea where to start, so we endeavour to guide our clients through what can be a distressing time by offering them the benefit of our expertise and personal knowledge.

For example, what is the difference between a handmade European hair wig, and one that is machine made and bought off-the-shelf? One answer is the fit. Few people realise that everyone’s head shape is very different and sizes vary dramatically.

We also understand how important it is to someone who has suffered hair loss through chemotherapy or alopecia for their wig to look as natural as possible. This is where Wig Specialities comes into its own.

European hair is generally better for the making of wigs for the European market, as it makes accurate colour matching easier. Asian hair is usually jet black and so requires bleaching and dying before it can be used
