I told you hair loss is a biggie when it comes to cancer and chemo, right?
It’s so big, in fact, that one woman (a student specializing in Apparel Product Development and Merchandising Tecnology at Central Michigan University) is studying the topic, trying to formulate the best designs for headwear in order to improve the quality of life for women whose hair is lost to chemotherapy.
And who can better communicate ideas for great cover-up solutions than women who have lost their locks?
What follows are instructions on how you can throw in your two cents on the topic of headwear for hair loss. There’s a survey (takes 10 minutes, tops, and is completely anonymous), plus a blog where you can spill the beans about what you think (also anonymous if you wish).
- Complete an on-line anonymous survey at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/HeadwearForHairLoss. (This survey is designed for women who have hair loss right now or have had it in the past year.)
- Visit the blog dedicated to this study and comment (anonymously if preferred) on headwear-related topics. The blog can be reached at http://headwearhairloss.blogspot.com/(All women who have ever had chemotherapy-related hair loss are welcome to visit and leave feedback.)
Please participate if you can — you might just make the chemo road easier for those who must travel it after you.
