Formerly, it was used as a beauty accessory. Today, it is mainly worn to mask the disease. It is necessary to trivialize the wig so that the sick women have less the feeling of being looked at differently. You have to go back to the beauty accessory wig.

It depends on the comfort of the wig. For a woman who is sick, comfort is very important. After that, there may be natural or synthetic hair, it is not the same price. There is a partial reimbursement of the Social Security, namely 125 €. The basic price is that. Some associations can also help financially the sick, like Onc'Oriant.
