The first wig I purchased I was told to avoid heat like curling irons.
The second wig, from a different place, said I shouldn't wear it at home because the heat from just opening the oven door can cause it damage.
Do folks wear their wigs at home?
Who has experienced wig damage, and from what?
My 'hair thinning' after almost a year on folfiri, some with Avastin, has now left my hair so thin it's time to do something to cover it up.
Any wig tips? Or is it easier to just start purchasing scarves? (I don't like hats)
Thanks all - have a good day.
