During cancer treatment hair loss may be a concern and many women choose to wear a wig. If you plan to do this, order a wig now so that you can have it styled and the colour matched to your own hair.

Some women, after hearing they will lose their hair, rush out and buy an expensive natural hair wig. Many regret it because, in addition to being expensive, natural hair wigs require a lot of upkeep.

Should you opt for only one wig, you can alternate wearing it with hats, turbans or scarves. We all know a little bit of hair can make a big difference and therefore Look Good Feel Better has recently added fringes to be worn under these head accessories to their merchandise available at workshops. They create the illusion of a full head of hair under a hat or turban and have proven to be popular. Scarves are a good investment, too, because they can be used in so many ways after your hair grows back. For those whose treatment will be ongoing, scarves will continue to be very helpful.

Scratchy hats will not work for someone with hair loss, so look for soft cotton linings and find hats with adjustable size features. A deeper cut and a snug fit will prevent embarrassing gaping at the sides. while a headband worn under a hat will secure the fit. Always select a hat that works with your face and body type.

Remember not to wear your hat perched on the top of your head as though you’re having second thoughts about wearing it at all. Pull it down low on your forehead and wear it with conviction.

Wear something terrific on your hat. Find a fabulous brooch you haven’t worn for years or treat yourself to an inexpensive new pin. Great costume jewelry can often be found without spending a lot of time or money.

Speaking of jewellery, why not try a chunky chain necklace, large sunglasses or pair of hoop earrings to boost your body image and put a swing in your step?
