Cancer is one of, if not the worst disease ever. Due to multiple treatments of chemotherapy, hair loss is inevitable for those unfortunate enough to be diagnosed and battling cancer. It is especially demoralizing for women. An interesting statistic: one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer within her lifetime. Every two minutes, one woman is diagnosed with breast cancer, and one woman loses the battle to cancer every 13 minutes. Each woman’s struggle through cancer is different. Whether you’re one of the eight who has been diagnosed and is currently undergoing treatment of you’re one of the many women who made it through treatment and beat it, it can be hard to establish a regular “routine” to feel like your old self. Here are some pointers on how to feel good again after cancer hair loss.
Focus On The Good
Cancer hair loss is not fun. Going through the treatment itself is draining and painful. However, it can help to make the daily choice to be positive and happy. Many psychology studies have shown a positive attitude, laughing and smiling can reduce pain and discomfort to help you feel better. In addition to discomfort, your smile can pass onto others, making their day better. Just keep your head up; it’ll make the process easier.
Pursue Connections and the Things You Love
Getting out and doing fun things either with a group of friends or even by yourself can be an excellent way to rediscover who you are apart from your cancer. Fun gatherings and socializing makes life enjoyable and can be a way for some women to move on from cancer.
Transform and Improve Your Look
Cancer hair loss alters one’s physical appearance substantially. Not only can you lose your hair from treatment, but also your weight or breasts. It can be challenging to look pas your cancer when all you see in the mirror are sunken eyes and a scalp with no hair. Besides a healthy diet and consistent exercise, getting your teeth whitened, nails done, and finding a comfortable, natural-looking, fitted wig can help transform your appearance and renew a sense of love for yourself. If you’ve gone through chemotherapy for breast cancer and want a new look to establish your post-cancer identity, Wigs and Hair Solutions has a wide selection of fitted wigs available in different colors and styles.
