It is no secret that cancer treatments generally result in complete hair loss. While some rare
individuals gamely sport a clean shaven hair for the duration of their treatment and recovery
period, majority of cancer patients are not really comfortable strutting around public without
any hair on their head.

What most of them do is to wear something to cover their bare scalp, usually a hat, a bandanna,
or a wig. Of these options, the wig is preferred by most cancer patients because it obviously
gives them a more natural look, which in turn makes them feel a lot better about themselves.
Even if they wear a hat or a bandanna, their baldness will still be quite evident and this usually
causes a drop in self-esteem. Besides, wearing one is a nice opportunity to don new hairstyles
that one has never tried before with their real hair.
