It’s no longer a well kept secret that many of us do have bad hair days. Well-groomed hair is of prime importance. We strive to make it our “crowning glory”. On a daily basis, a high percentage of us fret and feel uneasy when our hair is unmanageable or out of place. That might be bad enough, but it’s disastrous when our hair is lost entirely, either temporarily or permanently.
Thank heavens for wigs which then come to the rescue. Bearing the loss of hair through illness is extremely hard. And a lot of us, or somebody near and dear to us, have to undergo the shattering experience of losing hair as a result of chemotherapy treatment for cancer. Knowing there is some help to be had offers consolation and immediate relief. Of course, hair is eventually restored mostly after chemotherapy but what to do in the interim, while waiting for the detrimental effects of the treatment to wear off, becomes the question. Wearing colourful scarves is recommended and we see others do this. However, not every head shape is suited to stylish scarf wearing. Thankfully, we have wigs of every description available which compliment all head shapes. There’s a bit of fun also in exploring different hairstyles with a wig, an instant solution for the courageous.
The ownership of a wig or wigs goes a long way to improving morale and building up self-esteem once again. We can have a wig for every day casual wear, dress wear, all styles and different colours as well…immediately. We do have choices which again compensate for the stress and shock of having to adapt to such a huge change.
Wigs are here to stay. They have been used throughout the centuries in many different cultures, not alone in relation to hair loss but as signs of authority and prestige. More recently, famous people in the entertainment and fashion industries demonstrate the flattering and clever quality of present day products.
Help is at hand. And, if laughter be the best medicine, having fun choosing a suitable wig has got to be explored.
