Frequently Asked Questions

Will wearing a wig cause more hair loss?

Wearing a wig itself doesn’t inherently lead to more hair loss. However, there are factors to consider to ensure that wearing a wig doesn’t exacerbate existing hair loss or create new issues. First and foremost, it’s important to wear a properly fitted wig that doesn’t exert undue tension on the scalp, as this can potentially contribute to hair loss. Additionally, maintaining good scalp health is essential. Regular cleansing of the scalp and ensuring it remains moisturized, can help prevent any adverse effects. One of my favorite products for promoting scalp health is New Wash by Hair Story and also getting regular scalp love treatments. Proper care of the wig itself is also vital. Regular cleaning and maintenance, as well as avoiding excessive heat styling or harsh chemicals, can help preserve both the wig’s quality and the health of your natural hair.

How do I know when my synthetic hair peace needs to be replaced?

Knowing when it’s time to replace your synthetic hairpiece often involves paying attention to its overall condition. If it’s starting to get a bit frizzy, tangled, or just not feeling as fabulous as it used to, it could be hinting at retirement time. Keep an eye on changes in texture that even your favorite styling products can’t quite fix. If the base is showing signs of wear and tear—like rips or stretches—it’s probably waving a little hairpiece red flag. A synthetic hairpiece generally has a lifespan of about four to six months, depending on how much use, love, and care they get. Signs like a faded or dull appearance, excessive frizzing/tangling, loss of shape, or an inability to hold style suggest it might be time to consider a fresh hair piece for a vibrant and natural look. If you are unsure, you can bring it in for an evaluation and see if are any hair love treatments that can be done to revive your synthetic piece or if it is time to say adieu.

What is the best way to store my wig or topper?

To store your wig effectively, opt for a Wire Wig Stand or for a topper use a styrofoam head. These tools help maintain the shape and style of your wig or topper between wearings. Ensure you store them in a clean environment, away from dust, excessive humidity, and sources of high heat. While traveling, it’s acceptable to enclose them in a box or plastic bag temporarily.

What can I expect when I am done with Chemo treatment? How long will it take for my hair to grow back and what will it be like?

After going through chemo, it’s natural to wonder about your hair regrowth journey. Everyone’s experience is unique, but typically, you can expect your hair to start growing back a few weeks to a few months after finishing treatment. At first, it might come in thin or different in texture or color, but don’t worry, this is temporary. Over time, usually several months to a year or more, your hair will gradually return to its pre-treatment state. As it grows in, you can find different lengths and textures happening all at once. I offer Mini-Haircuts to help you grow out your hair and offer suggestions on how to style and work with the varying textures as we get your hair into a shape that you can grow out.
