Frequently Asked Questions

I just started chemotherapy, when will I notice hair loss?
Hair loss occurs usually one to three weeks following your first treatment. We suggest that you plan ahead and schedule your FREE consultation with your Recover With Confidence Medical Hair Loss Specialist while you still have hair, if possible. This allows your stylist to match your hair color and style. If this is not possible, then plan to bring a photograph of you with your hair.

What are the differences between a "fashion" and "medical" wig?
I purchased a wig on line or at a wig store. It is uncomfortable and moves around on my head. It’s extremely important to know that there is a difference between a “fashion” wig and a “medical” wig. Fashion wigs are created for women who have hair on their heads so the materials used are not important. When a woman loses her hair due to Chemo or for women with Alopecia, the materials need to be soft and non-irritating to the scalp. Also, fit is extremely important. Before purchasing, you consultant will measure your head – and are trained to customize the wig to fit perfectly!
Will insurance cover my wig?
Most insurance companies do offer a benefit for wigs, but you must follow their strict guidelines. Wigs are considered a cranial prosthesis under the Durable Medical Equipment category. Your Recover With Confidence Medical Hair Loss Specialist will be able to guide and offer assistance with your insurance billing. Some of our providers even offer insurance billing as a part of their service!
What about the times when I don’t want to wear a wig, like at night?
Plan to purchase a sleep cap and some beautiful scarves and turbans for when you don’t want to or cannot wear your wig.
What are the comparisons between Human and Synthetic hair?
Human hair is extremely soft and very natural in appearance. It can be colored (coloring should only be done by a Hair Loss Specialist), and styled using styling tools like any human hair. However, if you are going through treatments, you may not have the energy to wash and style your human hair wig. Recover With Confidence offers many high quality human hair and European Human Hair designs. Synthetic hair is a fiber and are less expensive than human hair wigs. Recover With Confidence uses a special fiber called Syntress. Syntress looks, feels and moves very similar to human hair. Our synthetic wigs come pre-styled, are very low maintenance and easy to care for. Some patients decide to purchase a human hair wig and a synthetic wig. They save the human hair wig for special occasions and use their synthetic one for day to day use.
Will my wig fall off?
Recover With Confidence wigs all are made with a very soft, non irritating non slip material, placed strategically throughout the base material. This non slip material will work with your body heat and provide a secure and comfortable fit! You can shake your head, dance, bend, twist – all while being completely sure that your hair is not going anywhere!
