Medical wigs range from an assortment of easy to care for synthetic wigs to customized wigs from hair replacement studios that provide a full range of designing and styling services. They provide naturally appearing hair replacement options for men, women, and children in need of a hair prosthesis.
The synthetic medical wig is specially designed with the medical hair loss patient in mind. For patients undergoing chemotherapy treatments, synthetic wigs are very easy to care for and will require very little time for care since the style has been set permanently into the synthetic fiber. Specialty synthetic prostheses also provide soft base materials along with non slip materials to keep the wig from shifting and sliding around. At hair replacement studios, a mold will be taken of your head to design a custom fit synthetic wig in order to achieve a good fit.
