iWeave iCare Program

Choosing a beautiful high-quality wig for hair loss is an important self-empowering step for many patients that suffer from hair loss associated with alopecia or anagen effluvium (hair loss associated with chemotherapy). In fact, one woman said it best after her own experience with breast cancer, mastectomy, and hair loss. “Within four weeks, I lost a major part of my body and all my hair, including eyebrows and eyelashes. I was at my lowest. I know how important a beautiful wig can be,” she said, “because they helped me take my power back during this very difficult time in my life” explaining her belief of how important wigs were in her life.
You should ideally begin the process before you begin to have hair loss, which can sometimes be two weeks after your first chemotherapy treatment. The hair loss process is a gradual one for many of the patients who suffer from the above-mentioned conditions, which is why we recommend starting the process earlier rather than later. Plus, you will have more energy as you move through the process of finding just the right style. You can view our options online at if you know your size, style, and color. Just as clothing doesn't always look the same on our bodies as on a mannequin, wigs can look very different on your head than in a photo. We believe that is what makes the iWeave Mobile App so great ( .
When you choose to wear a wig, it might take some time for you to get comfortable—yet, a wig can be a natural part of the healing process. Whatever your decision of having a custom product made for you, we advise that you receive a personal consultation with our iWeave Creative Director Kameesha “K.Dot” Allick and her team (She can be reached at or 404-965-2808). The iCare Team will walk you through the entire process so that you not only find a style that perfectly suits you, they will ensure that you understand how to file with your insurance company. In your spare time, you can also flip through look books or use the iWeave mobile app to see if there is a particular style that you fancy. Essentially, our services will help to adequately prepare you before any hair loss, and help you feel beautiful and confident throughout the process.
Tips on getting ready for a wig
  • Cut your hair short before you start chemotherapy. It's less traumatic to lose short clumps of hair than long ones —and it's easier to fit a wig over less hair.
  • If you get used to short hair, you won't have to wait as long for your hair to grow back to feel like yourself. Shorter is also cooler —an important consideration, because wigs can feel hot in the summer.
  • Since a shorthaired wig is easier to wear and care for, if your hair is already short, you'll have an easier time living with temporary hair of a similar length.
  • Look through salon books and hairstyle magazines to find the becoming cut that's right for you.
Choosing a wig

Color is probably the most important issue in choosing a wig. Select a somewhat lighter color than your own hair, for two reasons:

  • Your skin color may be off during chemotherapy —grayish, greenish, or yellowish. Less contrast is generally more flattering, and won't call attention to your complexion.
  • Wig hair is usually thicker than your own hair. So while the shade may be the same as your hair color, the wig will appear darker.

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, and a new style. Take wig to hairstylist or use look books.

Covering the cost of a wig

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 insurance company reimburses, but you should try. It is, after all, a remedy for a treatment side effect and just as important as medication you take to treat nausea. iWeave, iCare: Ready beautiful one?
