Wigs We Offer
In terms of hair for cancer patients, we offer a variety of styles and materials, including:
- Human natural hair wigs: Nothing compares to the look and feel of actual human hair, which can be cut, colored, highlighted and/or permanently curled to match your own typical hairstyle. Our natural hair for cancer patients is also totally customizable, so you can create the closest look to your own hair.
- Remy hair: While Remy hair cannot be colored or permed, it comes in a large variety of colors, with highlights already added. Remy hair often has root colors, too. We only carry the highest quality of uniform Remy hair.
- European hair: Also known as Russian hair, European hair is the finest type available, perfect for patients of European descent or anyone who prefers the silky feel this hair provides. Our European hair comes minimally processed, so we are able to do highlights, perms, etc., as you like. Other benefits include lace fronts for seamless hairlines and the potential to move your hair part anywhere you like.
- Synthetic wigs: Made with a type of memory fiber that holds its style even after washing, synthetic wigs are the easiest and most low-maintenance wig option available. They can only be styled by a professional and aren’t safe to use with your own at-home styling tools, but they take all the work out of daily hair care. We offer only the highest grade of synthetic hair, and we completely reshape wigs using steam.
- Heat-resistant synthetic wigs: Another option is the specially designed heat-resistant synthetic wigs, made to withstand heat up to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. This type of synthetic hair allows you to continue using blow dryers, curlers, flat irons, etc., to create the look you like.
