Chemotherapy

At Paula Young, we understand how difficult it is to face hair loss on top of a cancer diagnosis, and we're dedicated to easing you through this transitional time. You may feel like so much of your life is out of your control, but we're here to give you back some control-over the way you look, which in turn can make all the difference in the way you feel.

Chemotherapy affects everyone differently. Some people will lose all of their hair, while others may only experience thinning, and still others may see no effect on their hair at all. Most women do lose some or all of their hair, usually after their second treatment. It's important to remember that most hair loss is not permanent and that hair usually grows back after treatments end.

There are many options available to you in coping with hair loss. While some women gravitate toward turbans and scarves, others are most comfortable in a wig and some choose to wear their baldness proudly. Coming to terms with the fact that you need to wear a wig can be very emotional, but a wig can also be the key to helping you feel more like yourself again. With it you can look and feel just like a 'normal' person, and not a cancer patient. The key is to try and embrace your wig, because there is no shame in wearing one. It can actually be fun!

While all Paula Young wigs are designed for the ultimate in comfort and security, our Medical Hair Loss Wig styles have special features like an ultra-comfortable, non-allergenic gel lining and lightweight, breathable construction.
