If you are purchasing a wig because of hair loss, regardless of the reason (chemo, thinning, alopecia,)some private health plans will cover a portion or all of your wig. BUT, even if you do not have a plan, ask your doctor to give you a prescription for a wig (hair prosthesis). You can claim in on your income taxes as a medical expense. We know how difficult it is if you are buying a wig because of chemo treatments or hair loss/thinning for other reasons, but want you to know that times have changed and many ladies are wearing wigs now for convenience.

- What is better? Human or Synthetic?
It really depends on the reason you are getting a wig. Synthetic wigs require less time for styling. But if you want to straighten your hair one day and maybe curl it the next, a human hair wig would be the best choice for you.
- Why would I need a wig? I have my own hair!
You many not need a wig, but every woman should have a wig! Think back to a bad hair day or a time when you had to run out for something and your hair was not done? After getting a wig, you will wonder how you managed without it!
- I heard I should not cook when I have my wig on, is this true?
With a synthetic wig on, you have to avoid extreme heat. Opening up a hot oven, barbequing, putting a log on the fire. Any extreme source of heat that would cause you to back away is too hot for your wig. It will not go up in flames, but you will singe the ends. If this happens, it may be repairable. Bring it in to your experts and we can have a look at it for you.
