Some wigs are available on the NHS, but you may have to pay unless you qualify for financial help.
There are two types of wig you can opt for – synthetic and real-hair – and both come with pros and cons.
According to the NHS, synthetic wigs:
- Last six to nine months
- Are easier to look after than real-hair wigs
- Can be itchy and hot
- Cost less than real-hair wigs.
Real-hair wig, on the other hand, last three to four years and look more natural, but are are harder to look after than synthetic wigs and more costly.
