Alopecia, or hair loss, is a chemotherapy side effect that many of us fear more than any other aspect of treatment. With no hair and the high stress of cancer treatment how can you maintain confidence?
After losing my hair from chemotherapy for breast cancer, I panicked when my skin became too sensitive for wigs. A scarf tied behind my head reminded me of dusting cobwebs. I wanted something comfortable and poufy so I wouldn’t look as lousy as I felt.
This became a mission of creating something beautiful out of this chapter of my life. I learned to wrap big scarves, and the style was so unique that it drew compliments even from strangers. Since it was difficult to imitate, I snipped fabrics into a new pattern, produced short runs with a sewing contractor, and Titillating Turbans were born!
How to Choose Your Best Headwear
- It makes you smile!
- Soft:Terry turbans are perfect at home. For going out, choose soft, light fabrics: rayon, chiffon, cotton gauze. Avoid clingy spandex, thick fabrics, and heavy cottons.
- Non-slip: An elastic edge allows for lighter fabrics, more fullness and better grip than a tied scarf.
- Color! As bright as you dare – celebrate your healing.
- Accessorize! The ends of a turban wrap can flow loose or be tied in a bow. Add an accent pin. Big earrings attract attention to your smile.
Whether in pajamas or dressed up, you will have more confidence with headwear that assures you that you are not your hair.
