As I wrote on July 28th (the last blog: Shaving My Hair After Chemotherapy) I loved having my long hair and I had an attachment with my long hair and concerned about losing my hair when I got chemotherapy treatment.
But some of my friends said, “Just enjoy it, and get a wig in a color you never thought you would wear.”
So, I checked the internet to see what was available.
There are many sites where you can find wigs for cancer patients.
Since there is no hair, or not much hair, to hold when you wear the wig, there were instructions to wear a wig cap. My skin is very sensitive, and I did not want to wear a synthetic material cap, so I had to study a little.
While I was checking, I read on Bethany Kandel’s blog that there are free wigs for cancer patients information. One of the best offers I found was on the American Cancer Society site. I called them and got all the information I needed. They were so nice and caring. I found a local wig bank of American Cancer Society and made an appointment.
I tried many different styles.
There were mostly synthetic hair wigs since natural hair is more expensive, but it did not matter to me.
It was fun, and I picked my first official wig, which happens to be natural hair! Way to go, Sanae!!!
I did not realize that Eric was very conservative about me choosing a wig color; he wanted me to get a similar color to my own hair. So this time, I got almost the same color as my natural hair.
But you know what, I may get a pink or lavender wig for Halloween!
What do you think? LOL!
Making this chemotherapy time as one of my best experience in my life!!!
