Scalp Hygiene

The Basics

Toxins from chemotherapy and medication are released though urine and perspiration. It’s important while wearing alternative hair that you keep your scalp clean twice a day to avoid any possible pimples, cysts or infection.

For those of you experiencing the effects of chemotherapy and/or radiation on your skin or scalp:

Regular soap and shampoo made with any detergents can be extremely drying. Witch Hazel is an astringent that works well on the scalp. You can place a little witch hazel liquid on a small cotton pad or purchase they be purchased in pre-made boxes. If used in ‘occasionally’ it can clean well without drying the scalp too much.

For some of my clients, using it everyday caused excessive drying, for others it worked fine using it everyday. You just have to try it for yourself and see what kind of result you achieve with it as everyone’/s experience is individual.

Another good alternative is a mild shampoo containing no sulfates and a low amount of alcohol.

With any product, if you feel any dryness rub a small amount of Burdock root on the scalp.

“Amy helped us to get a perfect wig! So professional! Best of the best! Thank you so much Amy for the best work and service! We appreciate it”

“Amy is the BEST. She is real, fun, and gets things done. I was diagnosed with alopecia universalist at 16, and never had a good quality wig, so i just stopped wearing them entirely….until now! (9 years later). I would recommend Amy because she doesn’t just talk the talk, she walks the walk –she actually wears wigs too and went through the traumatizing hair loss we all went through. So she gets it. As a very indecisive person, Amy was very helpful while I had to make a decision on the color and style piece I wanted. I flew in from out of town the next week to make sure the cap fit right and to get it cut. Her hair stylist is AMAZING. The cut turned out better than I imagined. It was a very fun experience. I feel like Amy will be responsive and helpful in the future if I have any questions or want alterations in the future. She even taught me how to put on lashes out of the kindness of her heart. I defintely recommend going with CreatedHair!”

I got the quality of Hair I was looking for. I looked exactly as I did before the hair loss. I was also treated with great kindness, and felt very safe in her hands. She has the best Real Human Hair Wig, that I’ve ever seen.”
