Did you know? Insurance may cover the cost of your wig.
If you are suffering from a medical condition like Alopecia or Cancer that causes you to lose your hair – your wig may be covered under your current health insurance, if it is for a medical reason.
The trick is figuring out if your health insurance will cover it and how to file a claim. Insurance companies will not reimburse you if it is filed as a wig purchase, because wigs are considered a cosmetic purchase. But, if you file the claim using the phrase Cranial Hair Prosthesis, it will be paid out as a medical necessity. It will be important to have a written prescription from your doctor for a Cranial Hair Prosthesis, in addition to an explanation of how the hair loss has affected you emotionally, when you file the claim. It may also be necessary to have the written prescription before purchasing the wig or hairpiece. And when you are purchasing the wig or hair piece with us, be sure to let us know so we can indicate that it is a Cranial Hair Prosthesis and not a wig on the receipt.
Every insurance company is different and will have their own way of handling a reimbursement for a cranial hair prosthesis. Many will try to exclude or deny the claim unless it is specifically listed as a covered health service. You will want to look at the benefits your insurance company offers before filing a claim. There should be a section under “covered expenses” relating to prostheses, prosthetic devices or medical durable equipment. Be sure to follow all of the necessary requirements listed. And it might be helpful to have the following, as well:
Be sure to discuss this with your doctor and have them help you file a claim. Depending on the benefits and coverage each insurance company offers, this may not work for everyone but it is still worth a try. Check with your provider for different coverage opportunities. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to us, and we will do our best to help you get the information you need.
How do you find a wig? You can take several routes:
Try to pick out your wig BEFORE your chemotherapy begins. You'll have more energy. Plus, the stylist will be able to see your natural hair color and style. You can get used to wearing the wig in trial sessions, alternating with your own hair.
Wigs come in all styles and colors. A wig made of real hair could cost between $800 and $3,000, or more, and it requires more care than you give your own hair.
Most women choose synthetic wigs. They look and feel good, need very little attention and care, and cost much less ($50 to $500).
Go for the best-quality wig you can afford. You want one that doesn't have an obvious part line, that won't get matted or is difficult to care for, one that doesn't look like a bad toupee. It should fit well on your head, which is why it's important to take your wig with you to the hairdresser even when you don't need it yet.
You also want your wig to be comfortable, not lined with material that's going to feel scratchy against your scalp. (Remember that most wigs are designed for women who have some hair.)
Although you may wear your wig almost every day, most women use a wig for less than a year, so it's not necessary to buy something that will last forever. To keep your wig looking good for as long as possible, give your wig “time off” by using a turban, scarf, or hat. On occasion, have it cleaned and styled by specialty hairdressers.
Color is probably the most important issue in choosing a wig. Select a somewhat lighter color than your own hair, for two reasons:
Consider a completely fun wig that will boost your mood when you look in the mirror and tell the world you're doing fine. Try a new color, a new length, a new style.
Most health insurance companies cover part or all of the cost of the wig if your doctor writes a prescription. Ask for a prescription for an “extra-cranial prosthesis” (that is, a wig!) to submit to your insurer. Not every company reimburses, but you should try. It is, after all, a remedy for a treatment side effect, just as important as medication you take to treat nausea.

DETANGLING: When detangling your Wigs and Weave always start from the bottom gradually working your way to the top. With our Curly and Wavy extensions always wet the hair prior to detangling to avoid hair from frizzing. DETANGLING TOOLS RECOMMENDED: Large paddle brush, Denman Brush (great for curly hair), & a Plastic wide tooth comb.
SHAMPOOING & CONDITIONING: It is recommended that you shampoo and condition your Sew Luxe extensions every 1-2weeks. Instructions:
DEEP CONDITIONING: It is recommended to perform a deep conditioning treatment at least once a month to ensure the longevity of your extensions.
**Recommended Shampoos: Shea Moisture, Silicone Mix, Joico: Moisture Recovery, Its A 10 Miracle Shampoo plus Kertain, Paul Mitchell Rare Marula Oil Replenishing Shampoo, Paul Mitchell, Paul Mitchell Awapuhi Wild Ginger moisturizing lather shampoo, Organix (all of their shampoos are great) &One 'n Only Argan Oil Moisture Shampoo.
**Recommended Conditioners: Shea Moisture, Silicone Mix, Joico: Moisture Recovery, Its A 10 Miracle Conditioner plus Kertain, Paul Mitchell Rare Marula Oil Replenishing Conditioner , Paul Mitchell, Paul Mitchell Awapuhi Wild Ginger moisturizing Conditioner , Organix (all of their conditioners are great) &One 'n Only Argan Oil Moisture Conditioner.
**Recommended Products for curly hair styling: Paul Mitchell Curls Twirl Around Crunch-Free Curl Definer, Carols Daughter Hair Milk Refresher Spray, Carols Daughter, & Organix Quenching Coconut Curls -curl styling milk.
STYLING WITH HOT TOOLS: When styling with hot tools be sure to use to a silicone based serum prior to styling.
SLEEPING: Never sleep on wet hair! Sleeping on wet hair will cause tangling and matting.
WAVY TEXTURE: I recommend braiding your hair at night to keep wavy pattern & prevent frizz.
CURLY TEXTURE: I recommend put you hair in 2 strand twist to enhance the curls & prevent frizz.
Wrap you hair at night using a silk bonnet, scarf, or simply by sleeping on a silk pillow case to maintain the natural oils in your hair & allowing for less friction between your hair and other surfaces such as a cotton sheet or pillowcase.
