Alopecia and Chemotherapy Wigs: A Caring Approach to a Serious Problem.
HairQuarters helps men and women experiencing medically-related hair loss as a result of chemotherapy, thyroid, or other medical disorders and treatments.
Chemotherapy, and other cancer treatments such as radiation, works because they kill rapidly dividing cells. Because hair grows relatively fast, these cells are attacked and the hair growth is temporarily stopped. Now that new anti-nausiant drugs are available to patients, many people living with cancer treatment are able to work and play almost like normal, except for the hair loss.
The hair loss brings a loss of privacy and self-image that many find harder to deal with than the actual treatment. For this situation, we recommend that you choose a wig from a selection of full cap wigs.
