Dealing with ill-fitting, itchy, and expensive wigs on top of it all only made it worse. So Natasha Verma, who works as a traffic anchor at NBC 10 Boston’s morning show, came up with a better alternative to avoid the wig woes, and other cancer patients soon may be able to benefit too.
If you are having to deal with ill-fitting, itchy expensive wigs, you are going to the wrong wig shop or buying the wrong product. I have been involved in the wig industry over 20 years and I can tell you there is no reason to have to put up with these types problems especially someone who is dealing with so much already. Look for a full service wig salon that specializes in women going through chemotherapy. There are literally hundreds of wig manufactures, with different quality of caps and fibers. A good shop should be able to direct you to one that not too expensive and has a cap that isn't itchy. If you have a particular sensitivity to all the caps, a good wig shop can sew in material that can prevent "itchiness" or any kind of bad reaction you could be having.
Also, you might consider a good synthetic wig. Besides being far less expensive, they are 100 % easier to take care of. Human hair wigs require a lot of work after each washing to make sure it looks good. Synthetic Hair has a memory won't and require all the upkeep to look great. This is why we always suggest a synthetic wig when someone is dealing with chemo. And even professionals can't tell the difference between Human hair and a good synthetic wig by just looking at them!
