Chic Options for Chemo Hair Loss

Where I live, we are in extreme cold and having no hair while going through chemo means finding ways to keep the head warm.  But you may live in a warmer climate where style is the issue more than warmth.

There are lots of ways to still be chic and fashionable.  I found tying scarves in creative ways actually brought me flattering comments and scarves were, in fact, more comfortable than a wig and less expensive.

Chemo hats are another option when you can find ones that come below the ears and back hairline.  Comfortable fabric is key since the head is bald and anything rough can be scratchy.  There are lots of styles and fabrics to choose from depending on your circumstance.

Occasionally, going bald can be an option.  It is a statement that says ‘I’m okay with who I am and where I’m at in this moment’.  I went hat, wig and scarfless, especially in the humid summer.  Didn’t seem to bother anyone, and if it did, that was their issue.

So, check out your options.  Have fun with it. You might as well.  Take the time to wear outfits and looks that you might not have tried before.  I also found wearing makeup and earrings also helped the whole look and made me feel totally together in a new way.
