How To Cut Your Hair
Cutting hair for a chemo wig

Wash & Dry Your Hair.

Please send clean hair, Chemo Divas! In the event that it is not, just check mark “Please clean my hair” on the order form +$45.

It’s okay to use conditioner lightly,but don’t use any heavy styling products. You can do that when you get back your finished wig.


Make Pinky-Sized Ponies.

Instead of making one big pony, make many small ponies all around your head. Section the hair off to make the ponies about pinky-thick. The sections don’t have to be all that precise. You’ll see, it’s easy to do and it works out well. Some of our Divas do this at home,and some go to a salon.


Use Small Rubber bands.

Get those little rubber bands. You can get them at Walmart, Target, Walgreens, Amazon, etc. They usually come in black.

Don’t use the rubber bands that are transparent. They are plastic, and they tend to break easily.


Off With Your Ponies!

Take a pair of scissors and chop off those ponies, Chemo Divas! Cut close to the scalp, leaving the rubber bands in. The closer you cut to the scalp the longer the hair you get back. (If you try to leave some hair on your head, you might be disappointed later that the halo wig is not as long as you expected.)

We know this is hard to do.  But getting it over with can also feel liberating. Watch this video posted by one of our customers:
