Breast Cancer Awareness Month 2016 – Wigs & Hairpieces and Mastectomy Lingerie

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, a worldwide campaign that takes place every year to raise awareness of breast cancer and help raise funds for education and research. By raising awareness and educating people about the signs of breast cancer, more preventative action can be taken to save lives. On Friday 21st October, people around the UK will be wearing pink and organising fundraising events to spread the word about breast cancer.

Wear it pink provides a simple and fun way to show support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month and help raise funds for research into how to prevent breast cancer, detect it earlier and treat it at every stage to prevent lives from being taken.

Breast Cancer rates are rising and 1 in 8 women will be effected by this disease. With some patients facing chemotherapy which can result in losing their hair.  

We at Pink Hair Solutions are committed to supporting women on their journey. With more than 25 years of experience in dealing with hair loss of all types, we specialise in providing wigs for women going through chemotherapy. As everyone is different, we can provide a wide range of different hair pieces to suit each individual. 

Some ladies prefer wigs that are made with human hair as they can be washed, styled, blow dried and straightened, so they require styling just as you would style your own hair. 

Due to advancements in synthetic wigs, they are increasingly popular and have a number of advantages over human hair wigs:

·         Already produced in production and can be trimmed as required

  • The colour does not fade as quickly as human hair does
  • When washing in luke-warm water, the shape naturally falls back into place
  • Synthetic wigs can be placed on and slipped off with ease – this can be a big benefit for people that have had a mastectomy and may have some trouble lifting their arms
