Step 1: Use a lock of your hair to shop Use the lock of your own hair to help you shop for the right color and texture. Step 2: Look up hair salons and cancer centers Look up local hair salons and/or hospital cancer centers online. Step 3: Decide on synthetic or human hair Decide between synthetic and human hair. Synthetic wigs and hair pieces require less maintenance and take little time to dry. Human hair looks real but requires more maintenance and takes longer to dry. Step 4: Establish a budget Establish a budget. Human hair costs almost three times as much as synthetic hair. Tip Consider a custom-made wig versus a ready-made wig. Custom-made wigs will make for a better fit, but they have to be ordered. Ready-made wigs can be adjusted, and you can wear them out of the store. Step 5: Establish a comfort level Establish a comfort level. Some people opt for a style similar to their natural style - or, this might be the perfect time to get that look you never had --but always wanted! Tip Monofilament wigs have hair sewn into gauze instead of cloth, allowing more breathing room, making them airy and less itchy. Step 6: Purchase hair care products Purchase products needed for wig or hair piece maintenance -- any special brushes, conditioners, shampoos, and styling products. Did You Know? Did you know?
