4 Things To Consider When Choosing Medical Wigs

Here are 4 things to consider when choosing medical wigs.We wear wigs for many reasons; as a fashion choice, to save time, to protect our hair, or to cover up hair loss or hair thinning. In most cases, fashion wigs suit our wig needs just fine, but when your reason for putting on a wig is health-related, you have to be very careful about the wig you use. Hence, the need for medical wigs.

 

What is a medical wig?

A medical wig, also known as a cranial hair prosthesis, is a wig that is specially designed for patients suffering from hair loss, hair thinning, or other medical conditions. This concern for the scalp makes it necessary that it is designed carefully for maximum comfort and minimum irritation. Medical wigs are also required to look as natural as possible to hide hair loss and give their wearer peace of mind when she uses them.

 

Who uses medical wigs?

Here are the 4 things to consider when choosing medical wigs.

Medical wigs are for anyone who loses hair due to medical reasons. Hence, they can be worn by:

  1. Women with alopecia
  2. Women with trichotillomania
  3. Cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy or radiotherapy to the head

Factors to consider when picking a medical wig

#1. Cost

Your budget is a primary determinant of the type of wig you choose. Different wig types fall into different price ranges depending on the type, make, and quality. Generally, human hair wigs are costlier than wigs made of synthetic fiber, though some synthetic wigs of very high quality can be rather expensive.

 

Insurance coverage

Depending on your insurance company, you might not need to pay for medical wigs. Many insurance companies bear most or all of the expenses involved in getting a medical wig, but not all of them. Consult your health insurance to know if you’re covered before purchasing a medical wig.

#2. Maintenance

If you’re considering choosing a wig to cover up your hair loss, you’re probably going to be wearing the wig often. It’s difficult (and damaging to the wig’s longevity) to wash and style your wig multiple times a week just to keep it in shape. Consider going for low-maintenance wigs when you want to get a medical wig.

#3. Size and fit

To get the most out of your wig, you need to make sure it fits snugly and comfortably. If you’re physically picking a wig from the store, remember to test if it sizes you well. For online shopping, get your head measurements to help you specify what wig size you want. If you don’t know how to correctly measure a wig, check out our article on cap size measurement.

#4. Wig type

The type of wig you need is also a critical factor in the medical wig you choose. Different types of wigs come with unique specialties that cater to different needs. Depending on your hair loss or hair thinning type, your choice might vary between hand-tied, monofilament, or lace-front wigs. You might also have to pick between synthetic or human hair wigs while considering lifespan and looks.

 

Conclusion

Here are 4 things to consider when choosing medical wigs.Wigs are quite an effective way to deal with hair loss, but that only applies if you choose the right wig for your situation. The proper choice for a wig depends on how convenient it is to acquire and use and how effective it is in covering up your hair loss. Check out our collection of wigs for hair thinning and loss in the Eternal Wigs store to get the right wig for you.
