In this on-demand webinar series, CURE partnered with Look Good Feel Better to show how patients who experienced hair loss from cancer treatment can style their wigs.
In part three of CURE’s “Confidently You: Choosing and Styling Wigs that Look and Feel Right” webinar, Daniela Hernandez-Salas, a Look Good Feel Better volunteer, offered ways for patients with cancer to style their wigs following hair loss from treatment.
“So the wonderful thing about wigs is that you really don't ever have to style wigs that much,” Hernandez-Salas explained. “wigs have memory. So even after you shampoo them, they come right back to (their original style).”
In particular, she recommended using a mousse product specifically meant for synthetic hair, and also explained how to untangle and restyle wigs after shampooing. Further, she added, hair stylists can help with this process.
