Cancer Lesson #51: Wigs Are Hot

Cancer Lesson #51: Wigs are hot, and not always in a good way. (Although I will say my hairpiece with the raspberry-colored streaks was pretty damned fine).

Also, wigs make your scalp itch.

Baseball caps, on the other hand, are way cooler. They may even be “cool.”

I had chemo in the summer when the temperatures were hitting mid to high eighties most days. Frankly, I cared more about being cool than looking “cool.”

My Feminine Pink Ball CapMaybe I was delusional, but I kidded myself that my pink ball cap
added a certain femininity to my bald head.

    • I actually went without any head covering often enough that when someone would stare I’d wonder what they were looking at! And you’re right — if anyone was uncomfortable, that was their problem. Still, I have a friend who wore scarves all the time and another who wore her wig religiously. Whatever works, right? 🙂
