WIGS FOR CANCER PATIENTS

At Papillon Hair World, we provide 100% Human Hair, custom wigs for cancer patients suffering from total baldness due to hair loss from chemotherapy. If you have partial baldness only in certain parts of your head – you should look at our Hair Replacement Systems as an option. Papillon’s wigs for cancer patients are medical grade materials and we customize them for head size, hair texture, hair color, hair style, length and much more, as per the requirement of the client. Our aim is to give them an undetectable natural look and to go as close as possible to their original hair style. 

Most wig shops / online shops are run by traders who have no knowledge about hair styling, customization or the requirements of medical grade wigs. At Papillon, we customize wigs for cancer patients or for alopecia patients made from Indian Remy Hair, thus making them look very close to the hair that the patient had naturally.

Our ladies hair wigs for cancer patients are very convenient to use – you just need to tie and untie the adjustable belts on the inner side of the hair wig to make it more comfortable. These medical grade ladies wigs are breathable, light weight, comfortable, versatile, and easy to maintain and can be used daily. This makes them the best wigs for chemo patients.

FAQs – WIGS FOR CANCER PATIENTS

When will I start losing my hair during Chemotherapy?

You may start losing your hair after 2 to 3 weeks from the first course of chemotherapy. Hair loss in some patients is gradual while others lose their hair immediately, that too in huge quantities, so these patients, when going for their second chemotherapy course already started wearing a wig for cancer patient, a hat or a scarf to hide the baldness. The amount of hair loss basically depends on the exact drug and the dosage used for chemotherapy treatment.

Will my hair come back after my chemotherapy? When?

Mostly, hair loss due to chemotherapy is temporary. Once the treatment stops, a person who is suffering from hair loss due to chemotherapy will notice regrowth of hair, however, this is not immediate. The patient will see the hair to start growing after 3 to 4 weeks from the last chemotherapy cycle. This hair growth is very slow, near about 0.5 inches a month, so to get a shoulder length hair you will need to wait for around 8 to 10 months.

Do all cancer patients lose their hair?

Chemotherapy is one of the treatments for cancer and usually hair loss is the major side effect of this procedure. A particular mix of cancer drugs are used for chemotherapy. This mix is related to the type of cancer the patient has. Some drugs cause little hair loss, while others cause complete hair loss. Some chemo drugs do not make a patients hair fall out, but the hair becomes thinner. Your Oncologist is the best person to inform you about the side effects of your treatment.

What is the best time to order a wig for a patient undergoing Chemotherapy?

Well, it’s actually best if you purchase a wig after the first Chemotherapy cycle. Most of our clients purchase the hair wig for cancer patients around this specified time, as it is well in advance and they can use it when the time comes. Till then, they can use this time to be mentally prepared to enjoy wearing a wig for cancer patient. We recommend you to buy the wig immediately, if you have already lost your hair during the chemotherapy session, so that you don’t have to worry and carry the bald look.

Can you make a wig out of my own Hair?

No. Unfortunately this is not possible. The amount of hair and the length of hair required to make one full wig is much more than what can be collected from one donor. Moreover, once the hair is fallen or cut and collected, the direction of the cuticle layer is disturbed. Hence if we make a wig out of fallen hair, it will get tangled very very easily. Lastly, the wig making process is a very long one – from sourcing the hair to making the mould to stitching the wig cap and then hand knotting or machine wefting the hair on the cap. To give wigs in the shortest time possible, we do a lot of these processes before hand and just do the sizing and hair customization at the last stage. Because of these reasons, we do not make wigs out of your own hair and also don’t suggest the same. A lot of traders might commit this when in fact they know, it is practically impossible to check whether the hair used on the wig is actually your original hair! So just beware! 

I am not able to visit your store. Can I still buy a Papillon Wig?

Certainly yes! In case you OR the patient who is going to wear the wig is not staying in Pune, please get in touch with our team by calling us or by filling the enquiry form on this page. Someone from our side will get in touch with you and will assist you in the online buying process. We will be sending you a brochure of the pre designed hair styles – one you select a wig type and a style, we confirm your order and send you a tutorial video on ‘How to Measure your Head Size for a Wig. Once we have all the required details, we prepare and send you the customized wig at your doorstep. However, if someone is staying near Pune or is able to come down to our store, we can give you much more style options and customizations than just the pre designed styles.

What is so different about Papillon Ladies Wigs?

Glad you asked! You will hear a lot of traders and online shops saying that they sell 100% Human Hair Wigs. However, did you know – there are almost 6 to 7 different grades of quality even within Human Hair. There is hair that is collected from Parlors, from Combs and even fallen hair is collected from villages and slums in order to make wigs. There are also instances when animal fibers and synthetic hair fibers are mixed with human hair to make them cheap. We used 100% Human Hair in our wigs, which is sourced from the temples in South India. This is one of the most pure sources of Human Hair and also one of the costliest but for a reason. The other most important part in wig making is the base material. Even if you use the highest grade of hair in a cheap quality base material, the wigs don’t look and feel good. It is important to look at the knotting quality and comfort as well while buying wigs. The higher the amount of hand knotted work, the higher the price and comfort. We have wigs that range from hand knotting work done only in the crown area to fully hand woven wigs! Thus, the Papillon Wigs – look the best, feel the best and are also among the most durable ones.

Do you accept Hair Donations for making wigs for Cancer Patients?

We totally appreciate your gesture and intent behind this. However there are multiple reasons why we do not accept hair donations to make wigs for cancer patients. For this one has to understand a bit about the wig making process. When we make 100% Human Hair Wigs, there is a lot of wastage that happens. Moreover, while hand knotting or machine wefting the hair on the wig cap, almost 3 to 4 inches of hair is reduced in length. Thus someone who has donated let’s say 16 inches of hair – this hair can only be used to make wigs of 12 inches or smaller. Lastly and most importantly, we do not have a transparent way to check whether your hair is really being used to make wigs for cancer patients or they are just being sold to a trader to make other wigs. Most of the companies accept donations just as a marketing gimmick / marketing activity and then either sell those hair to the traders or just discard them. For e.g. there are companies which even promote collecting 4 inches or 8 inches hair for making wigs for cancer patients. Now imagine, if 4 inches length of hair is lost in just knotting, what kind of length will this hair be used in as a finished product! We urge you to look at the credentials of the company accepting such hair donations and not just look at their social media posts before deciding to donate hair! There are other ways in which you can show support to cancer patients fighting it out.
