If a person gets diagnosed with cancer and he/she will get started off with their chemotherapy or radiation treatment, quite typically the hair loss would begin within 10 to 14 days after having gone through the first treatment.
The ideal thing that people can do well before his or her chemotherapy treatment gets underway, is to know exactly what needs to be done for hair loss prior to their first treatment. The activities can involve:
Before we talk more about wigs, let us see what radiation and chemotherapy does to a person:
Chemotherapy and any other kind of radiation can lead to hair loss. People tend to lose hair that only lies in the area, which gets treated. Still, radiation or chemotherapy to one’s head can let people lose either some or all of their hair on the head, which could be even eyebrows and lashes.
As and when a person starts to lose their hair, the ideal suggestion is to either cut the hair very short or shave it off completely. The mental framework becomes much better and it allows them to take complete control of the situation and makes the process of hair loss much easier to handle.
Wigs for Chemotherapy Patients
Choosing a wig is not just like choosing any other fashion accessory. It is a much more important process, particularly when it is about choosing for cancer patients.

It is best to get hold of a wig, which carries the resemblance with that of his or her natural colour of hair. That would make sure the transformation is not too difficult and will also help patients in being comfortable.
Ideal Size of the Wig
Most of the wigs that are available for patients having undergone chemotherapies carry the appropriate size to fit almost anyone. Still, in order to get the right size, one has to take the measurement by placing the end of his or her measuring device at the centre of their forehead, right at the hairline.
Then get hold of the measuring tape from one’s scalp right down to the back of one’s neck, which run behind their ears and back to their forehead.
