What makes a wig for cancer different than any other? At Chrysalis Custom Hair we understand that hair loss from cancer treatment including chemotherapy and radiation is very different than other kinds of hair loss. We want you to be able to seamlessly transition from your natural hair into your new custom wig without ever changing your look. Therefore, our goal is to keep you looking like yourself through treatment and beyond. We custom design wigs for women with cancer to match the hairstyle you are used to seeing in the mirror.
Your skin may become more sensitive with the use of chemotherapy and radiation. We use only the finest materials available. Then we customize the fit of the cap by hand stitching it so your wig fits securely without the use of adhesives. You should not use tape or glue on your skin while in treatment because use of chemicals could cause irritation.
Chrysalis Custom Hair serves the greater Chicago area including Naperville, Evanston, Rockford, Bloomington, Peoria, Springfield, Downers Grove and Oak Park.
Custom wigs fit the exact measurement of your head and are cut, colored, and styled according to your preference of human hair or synthetic hair wig. Those who want the most natural look prefer custom made wigs. Depending on your timeline some wigs can be made to include your every specification. Wigs can be all lace, have a widows peak added, or be created on any kind or color of fabric you would like. They can be made to have your own curl pattern whether that is extremely curly or just a little wavy. Baby hairs can be built in or added on. You can even have a swirl pattern added if that what you’d like. These ultra custom wigs can take up to 4 months to create. If you need a wig sooner than that Chrysalis Custom Hair has hundred of custom wigs in stock that have already been sewn together. All that’s left to do is customize it to mimic your color and hair style.
A number of online wig shops offer custom wigs. They will attempt to help you get the right measurements and show you wigs virtually. These wigs, once made, are not returnable and the companies will not offer further assistance once you have received the product. Most novices, even with guidance, are not able to get accurate measurements for a perfect fit. Without seeing, touching, and trying on the hair there is no way to tell if it is going to pass as natural looking. Online stores use special lighting to hide flaws such as hair that is too shiny or thick and thus looks “wiggy”. You can certainly get a cheaper wig by ordering online but be prepared to accept that the product that may not be what you were hoping for.
Can women undergoing cancer treatment wear a hair topper? Possibly. If your hair loss is concentrated and not complete, you might qualify for a human hair topper. If your hair loss is widespread, and your medical team confirms that your hair will fall out, then the only viable option is a full-coverage wig. A Chrysalis specialist can help you find the best options for your situation
