I was asked to go on the Chrissy B Show again… to talk about hair of course… but hair in a way that can help people after a break-up.
Jeanette has suffered some difficult times, and is a survivor of Cancer… she is a wonderful women, and she shares her story after we do the make-up reveal.
There was a time when Jeanette had to wear wigs dud to her chemotherapy and we talk a little more about that too…
Chemo targets cancer cells, and healthy cells… and it also destroys hair cells. Within a few weeks of having chemo hair can occur – in patches or completely. The extent of hair loss depends on your treatment.
It is no surprise that when people lose hair that they can be shocked, or depressed… and this can worsen recover. It is a time when a lot of family and friend, as well as professional support is needed. Here are so tips for this sensitive time:
- Many ladies will want to cover their baldness by wearing a turban, scarf, or wig. There are so many fantastic wigs out there to try, some are synthetic, which are very light to wear or there are more natural looking human hair wigs.
- Try on different styles and lengths of wigs to see which one feels comfortable.
- Opt for a slightly lighter colour wig than natural hair colour as the treatment may make skin tone a little paler.
- Ask a hairstylist for advice and whether they would be able to cut and shape the wig. Cutting wigs is an art in itself as one snip wrong then the whole wig is ruined! And that’s an expensive mistake to make!
- Hair normally starts to grow back after Chemo within a few months, but with very fluffy hair for the first week or two then it will start to grow back at its normal rate. The new hair may differ from before, some hair will grow back, curly, thinner, or even thicker. I’ve had some clients come back to me after treatment and their hair is a completely different colour too.
Jeanettes hair has grown back beautiful and shiny, but is a little finer than before. Jeanette has a round face shape and I wanted to create lots of volume and height at the crown to lengthen and flatter her face shape.
