After losing my hair during chemo treatment, I couldn’t imagine how I would feel so I treated myself to a human hair wig. It was cut to exactly how my old hair was and it’s been washed, styled and straightened using my GHDs on a number of occasions. It’s been worn mainly for special occasions to go out. I’d also bought some caps to wear, which I tended to wear more than the wig. Surprisingly, as my hair has started to grow again I’m very happy with my short cropped hair!
I would now love for my wig to go to someone who will get some benefit from wearing it and enjoy styling it as if it’s your own hair. It’s been washed and styled ready for someone else to wear and enjoy it!
The wig is made by Ellen Willie and is genuine, which I bought from Andrea’s Hairoom. It is made of 100% Remy Human hair cut into a modern style and consists of a 50/50 blend of Chinese and Indian hair. It has hand-made lace at the front and a hand-tied monofilament top that creates a scalp-like base which can be parted on either side or down the centre. The sides and back are hand-tied and coated with silicone to provide a secure and comfortable grip, that can be adjusted. This make of wig would usual retail for over £1,000.
Andrea’s Hairoom supply wigs and headwear for people experiencing hair loss following cancer treatment and/or hair loss conditions. They were my hairdresser for a number of months before my hair started to grow back.
I have a stand for the wig, the wig is boxed and receipt from when I bought it.
