Chemotherapy Hair Loss
As if having cancer is not bad enough, you then have to suffer all the consequences and side effects that chemotherapy leaves you with. Including hair loss.To those who love us this is a small price to pay for our health. However for some it is the final straw that breaks the camels back. In stead of the relief that the cancer is gone, you are constantly reminded of your illness each time you take a look in the mirror.It is true what they say if you look good it helps you to feel better, so if your reflection is pleasing this may be helpful to aid a quicker recovery.
Before your chemotherapy treatment begins it is helpful to make an appointment to choose a wig or hair prosthesis. (please see section on wigs). It is also a good idea, if you have already started to lose your hair, to take a photograph of yourself (pre cancer), with you. As you will see from the wig section there is a vast selection available to you, depending on your requirements and the amount you wish to spend. Whichever you choose a wig or real hair prosthesis is the best option for your sensitive skin pre, during and shortly following chemotherapy.
You have now seen the photographs and read the testimonies of Stephanie, Kerry and Anneka. Please note these lovely girls have all suffered cancer and been treated with chemotherapy. They are not wearing wigs but a temporary type of hair replacement which is completely safe to the scalp and 100% does not hinder or inhibit the natural safe growth of their hair.
There is no guarantee of the longevity of this added hair however it can be between 4 and up to 14 weeks depending on your natural hair growth. Many clients may have this hair fitted two or three times before their own hair is a reasonable length to style.
The advantage of this type of added hair is that it is not a wig which you remove at night, or worry about falling off or wearing on holiday, It remains on until it’s time to be removed which becomes evident with wear, as discussed between 4-14 weeks.

Chemotherapy Hair Loss – Stephanie’s Story
Having found our website, Stephanie travelled from Monaco for her new hair and writes:
“I am doing fine, I do like it and have so far only received compliments from friends and family.
I would say that my hair really looks and feels natural, after 8 months wearing a scarf it does feel incredible to have long thick hair. I am very happy with the results and would recommend it to anyone, it has made me feel beautiful and feminine again and I think what Christine does for people in my kind of situation is amazing: it is not only about hair it is about helping to recover a missing part of our personality. I think this is an ideal solution to temporary or permanent hair loss.”
(Stephanie is wearing temporary hair additions lasting between 4 and 12 weeks. This system is completely safe for the future growth of the hair and can be replaced until her own hair is long enough to styled as she desires).
Chemotherapy Hair Loss – Anneka’s Story
Although Anneka’s hair has grown back, its’ texture has changed. It has become quite curly and coarse.
Anneka longs to have her hair as it was prior to chemo treatment (long and luxurious).
As usual, Anneka was told her hair was too short for extensions. However, after sending emailed photos to Christine and lots of messages later, Anneka travelled to Biddenden from Middle-of-the-country Leeds for her transformation.
Several hours later………….what a transformation. An extremely happy Anneka.
Anneka says……….”ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC. REALLY, REALLY PLEASED – BETTER THAN I HAD HOPED”.

Chemotherapy Hair Loss – Kerry’s Story
Kerry travels from Fareham, Hampshire. She is recovering from the harsh effects of Chemo and Radiotherapy. Kerry has received a temporary hair replacement lasting between six and twelve weeks. Her own hair at the first fitting was approximately ¼ inch long, this will healthily grow whilst wearing the replacement.
Kerry can reapply the replacement until her own hair has grown to her comfortable length. Kerry’s new look will help her towards a more positive attitude and will be constructive to her healing process.
“My Hair was very fine, there was not a lot there at all. After finishing chemo I wanted to start leading a normal life as soon as possible, for me this meant waking up in the morning and seeing myself with hair. Christine has definitely made this a reality!
My two boys love my new look and my husband was…….well for the first time speechless!!!
Christine I can’t thank you enough for making me look like me again. I love looking in the mirror now. You are a wonderful, talented lady. Thank you again.”
