Hair loss is a common side effect of chemotherapy treatments. However, there are options to help patients regain their confidence and improve their quality of life. The hair stylist and the hair prosthetist can help you through this difficult stage to better cope with the side effects of certain chemotherapies. Different, complementary approaches are available to you:
• The socio-coiffeur is trained to accompany and bring patients well-being, comfort and solutions for a better self-esteem: cutting your hair, color, specific care.
• The medical hair stylist offers hair prosthesis models (wigs) made from high quality synthetic or natural fibers. They are designed to be comfortable to wear and easy to maintain. They can be adapted to the shape of the head and the natural hair color. Health insurance companies will cover the cost of the headgear depending on its composition.
• Scarves, headbands and hats can also be offered.
