I don't know about what makes you comfortable, but whatever it is it cannot be no cover.
It is advisable to cover your scalp during chemotherapy induced alopecia, for health reasons.
If you feel cap is good go by it.
Just take good care
Al the best

My hair is thinning a lot from chemo but it's been 6 treatments so far so it's not been too bad. The Cancer Care in Manitoba has a program for cancer patients to lend them wigs or scarves, etc and tips for makeup - whatever advice the patient needs for the topic. My advice would be to check with your community Cancer Society for info about what's available in your area. Good luck and do what feels right for you.

Depends on your age i think. I love the bandanas, newsboy ats the most!

There are baseball caps with a scarf attached that you tie in back. I liked those, or just a scarf. I did have a wig and I wore it, but it felt too hot to me.

Chicks always look hot in a hell rag, baby!

You should wear whatever you're most comfortable in. I wore my wig once and I hated it. I wore bandanas...I had a bunch of different colors.

hey girl, u should do what u want to do! so if u want to wear your baseball cap then by all means u should. also if u don't mind me saying so, i think that since u r in this fight for your life that wether or not u decide to cover up or not on your head isn't the most important issue here. what's important is that u should feel good about anything u want to feel good about so don't sweat the small stuff girlfriend ok? just have alot of laughs & enjoy your life cuz it's about to get better & i'm sure u don't want to worry about silly little things right. so just be u & enjoy everything & eveybody & listen to lots of music cuz that's what makes the world go round. hope u didn't mind me saying this stuff but i know just what it feels like to be u & thought my input might just be a big kick for u today. good luck on all the answers u will be receiving & just remember to have fun. bb

If you have the confidence on a certain day, go without any cover. It's an awesome woman who does this. On other days, wear a lid or hair, whichever you prefer. Might as well mix it up, kiddo. And this, too, shall pass. Bless.

Whatever makes you feel most comfortable, darling.

I know some women who have worn hats or scarves artfully draped about their heads because they worried about what other people would think, and I must say I felt bad that they felt they had to kneel at the altar of what makes others comfortable. If you're doing chemo or radiation, people should know you're not having fun, and should leave you the hell alone.

My vote goes to whatever makes you feel best. If a wig does it for you, then make it a wig. It sound like your ball cap isn't doing it for you, so for hell's sake, find something else, or go without. People who understand will respect your personal choice and preference, and people who don't don't count because they are idiots. It's as simple as that.

And just so you know, I have always felt that if I ever have to face that choice, I will probably go with "bald is beautiful," mainly because when I see a woman with no hair, I see a beautiful warrior who is facing things head on, and I would hope to be that way myself.

So do your thing, and do it like you do everything else--do it with flair. How you look is an attitude, anyway, and I happen to know you have enough attitude to do anything you please.

Be well.

God bless you .... I think you would look great in any of the above ... its your comfort level .... i personally love women in baseball caps ... i thinks it s a guy thing :)

I think I would like to have both options available to me if I had that problem.
I think it is what we all would face individually if the situation arose.
Good Luck to you.

Wax that baby! Bald chicks are hot! (You can make the carpet match the drapes) But most importantly I hope you are feeling better! All my love, dearest. From Stacey too.

(I think your dad wanted a son)

Do whatever makes you feel the best. Don't worry about what others think of you. I am a nurse and I work on an oncology unit. I guess I am pretty used to seeing people without any hair and I actually think they look really great. One of our motto's on our floor is - Bald is beautiful. If it was me I would show it as a badge of honor for your incredible braveness and courage in your fight against cancer. Remember to always keep hope.
