Why don’t cancer patients make wigs from their own hair?

    Firstly, hair needs to be a minimum length.

    Secondly, it takes the hair of more than 1 person to make a wig.

    People make the choices that they are comfortable with.

    And it takes time. And relatively few (IME) cancer patients wear wigs these days. Scarves seem to be far more common, or just going 'bare.'

    (I wonder if wigs were more common back when cancer was seen as something shameful, and people tried to hide it as much as they could. I've known probably half a dozen people in the past 5 years or so who have lost their hair to chemo. None wore a wig.)

      I wore a hijab. Woolly in the spring and lighter in the summer. They have little satin caps inside that are very comfortable.

    It's usually not long enough to set on a lining.
