WHAT TO WEAR?
If a woman suffers from hair loss, thin hair or baldness due to critical illness or disease, she often chooses to cover her scalp with a wig or a type of headwear. Some women feel they lose a bit of their femininity if they lose their hair. On top of having to deal with their illness and possible treatment, they also have to deal with feeling less like themselves. They miss the sensation of volume around their scalp. The hair also used to protect the scalp, and being very sensitive, it needs protection from the heat or from cold weather as well as against harmful radiation from the sun. Wearing a wig or a head covering can help with this.
