Medical Grade Wigs for Cancer & Hair Loss
WHAT IS A CRANIAL PROSTHESIS
A cranial prosthesis is a medical term used to describe a hair system designed specifically for those suffering from hair loss due to medical conditions or treatments, such as chemotherapy. Many insurance providers now cover all or some of the cost of a medical wig as long as you have a prescription from your doctor. We can assist you with the process if necessary.
Which is Better? Human or Synthetic Hair Wigs?
Why did my Human Hair Wig Loss Its Curl?
The factory style of human hair wigs is achieved by setting the hair, not perming it. Therefore, any curls in these wigs will wash out when shampooed or exposed to moisture.
What should I choose - Human or Synthetic Hair?
Human hair wigs are popular because of their luxurious texture, styling versatility, and long lifespan. Just like your own hair, they can be styled with heated styling tools – curled or flat ironed. If you want long (shoulder length or longer), we highly recommend human hair, as it holds up much longer and resists frizzing.
Many women prefer synthetic wigs because of their lower cost and easy maintenance. Most synthetics – especially the shorter styles – feature shake-and-go styling. Just put it on in the morning and go!
What is the difference in cap construction?
Cap construction refers to the material used to create the base of a wig and how the hair is attached to it. A "Monofilament" wig has a transparent mesh top with hairs individually hand-sewn, creating the illusion of natural hair growing from the wearer's scalp. A "Hand-tied" wig, also known as a cranial prosthesis, is specifically designed for people with medical hair loss. The entire wig has hairs hand-sewn onto a soft, mesh base for comfort against a bare scalp. Hand-tied wigs are noticeably lighter and more natural-looking than traditional wigs.
