Sorry about the previous unfinished message...I completed taxol treatment in July. I lost my hair in May and have been sporting a bald head for the summer. My hair is starting to grow back, but I'd like to have a wig made for when I return to work in September. I am African American and I save my locs that I cut off when I was diagnosed last summer. Does anyone know of anyone who can make me a wig from my locs? I don't feel comfortable wearing wigs that are made with straightened hair because I always wore my hair naturally and I want to feel like myself when I return to work. Being bald has kept me cool during the summer, but I don't feel like myself this way either. I know this may sound trivial, but I think feeling good cosmetically will help me to recover more quickly. As all of you know, the toll that all the medication takes on our bodies can be a difficult thing to cope with. Hope someone can help me.
