There are several ways to know if a cranial prosthesis wig fit on your head right. First, it should be snug, but not too tight. This is particularly important for a cranial prosthesis wig because patient’s scalp is already sensitive.
Albeit your wig won’t feel as comfortable as nothing at all, but it shouldn’t irritate, cause headaches or hurt you. The best way to know if your wig fit your head correctly is by measuring ahead of time. Then, giving those measurements to a cranial prosthesis specialist so they can make the medical wig as per measurements.
Additionally, treatments such as chemotherapy causes additional hair loss. For this reason, it’s important to properly measure your head for your custom cranial prosthesis wig.
How To Make Sure Your Wig Fit Your Head Right
If you’ve been wearing a non-medical wig, there are definitely telltale signs that your piece isn’t fitting you correctly. With this in mind, below are a few things to look out for.
If your wig is too big
The wig will lift up when you move your head or the cap will slide around. Unless you’re doing wild head dances, a perfect fitting wig should be able to stay on through most movements. Wigs containing a lace front shows your natural hair through the ear tab hairline. Or, the lace is buckling or wrinkling at the front. Those are signs your cap size may be incorrect. However, some of these issues can be resolved by using the wig adjustment straps. Ultimately, you are the best judgement of whether the wig is right for you.
To know whether your wig is too small, notice how it feels on your temples. Excessive pressure in this area or pulling your natural hair, then the cap may be too small. Most medical wigs are made with more durable material than lace. However, if your cap has a lace front and the lace rolls under, then it’s too small. Otherwise, mono cap wigs that’s too small may stick up at a point on the crown.
