Dealing with cancer is an unfortunate reality in modern society, and one of the dreaded complications of treating this disease is hair loss. This can be an upsetting experience for someone already traumatised by the effects of cancer. Modern Hair Techniques is in the business of empowering those who are struggling with cancer and coping with hair loss. We offer high quality wigs for cancer patients to help restore their dignity and their style because we care how people look.
Cancer wigs come in many shapes and styles for men, women, and children. We have many colours, lengths, and styles to choose from so we can assist any client. We offer a large variety of synthetic and human hair wigs which can be custom ordered, and we are one of only two studios in Australia to offer cyber hair wigs. The right cancer wig can restore your self-confidence and have a positive impact on your daily life.
If you have just been diagnosed, then taking control of the situation will help prepare you emotionally. Patients who must endure chemotherapy don’t always lose their hair immediately. Cutting your hair short and experimenting with different styles can help prepare you for the experience of wearing a chemo wig. Many patients even come to the studio and try on different wigs, but those you initially try may not be exactly what you end up getting because cancer wigs are different than fashion wigs.
Fashion wigs are primarily designed to change a person’s look or style. They can be comfortable and high quality, but they are not made the same as chemo wigs. Cancer patients who have lost their hair tend to have very tender scalps. In fact, they are often too delicate to handle the feel of regular fashion wigs. Therefore, wigs for cancer patients are lined with a soft, breathable material that won’t irritate a painful scalp. Chemo wigs are fitted directly to a person’s head and customised for the perfect fit. They provide an invisible hairline which closely replicates a natural head of hair. Patients wearing these unique chemo wigs can comb and style their hair confidently, knowing that they look great. Our wigs for cancer patients are also comfortable to put on and take off.
Caring for your cancer wig is probably not the first thing on your priority list, but it is something which requires careful attention. Whether your wig is made of synthetic or human hair, they must be well-maintained to retain their best appearance. Depending on the wig you choose, be sure to ask for care instructions and follow them carefully.
In the meantime, you can come into Modern Techniques Hair Studio. All our qualified technicians have years of experience in wig maintenance. We can service your existing hair and your wig while you wait, and we offer individual rooms for your privacy. We can also show you how to care for your wig at home.
