Thnx poodleluv, good key words for google I hadn't tried. I'm looking for a little hair added around a hat also. I'm so sorry you lost your hair! Hope you can save some of it for hats, etc.I'm trying to figure out a way to make a small strip of it for the sides of hats with iron on stuff and binding. My daughter sent me some of hers in honor of me bless her heart.
I just bought my first wig and have to say I love it, and my hair hasn't even fallen out yet! I got yhe correct size [which is large] and I forget it's even on. I am used to wearing caps outside because I hike alot, so this was a similar feeling on my head. I have to say though, I went to one wig dealer who kept strtching small wigs on my head, they were uncomfortable, and they promised to stretch them. I decided not to buy from them because my experience with a hat is if its too small, eventually you get a headache and its constantly bugging you.
I can imagine with a chemo hair loss you need a perfect fit for comfort. You can write down a list of names online and hunt them down in your area. Mine is a lace cap monofilament around $160, light wieght, not full, moves when you do, soft and a small area at the top with a fake scalp so it really looks natural. Its so soft I can pop a hat on top of it! I may just get one more and cut it a little shorter. The long ones were so cute, but I'm too old for them, lol. I did end up in the smallest wig place with a very nice lady who had cancer also, less expensive, which BTW the top shop lady said you can not get similar wigs for less than $400, and that was simply not true.
Keep looking and the net is a good source for wig names/ID
