“What does your husband or boyfriend think about wigs?” This search term somehow lead to our blog and got me thinking. That’s a good question to ask and we’re always curious to hear how men react to issues related to breast cancer.
Wearing a wig is a big concern for any women going through chemo. She worries how her husband or boyfriend will react and that he may not find her as attractive as before. We want to assure these women that a wig will not affect her beauty in her love’s eye. Plus the wig is temporary until your hair grows back.
BUT I’m sure hearing it from men themselves will make a stronger impact. Boys – we want to hear from you about this. Be honest (but gentle please). Your responses will provide great insight for any woman asking herself that question.. and that will hopefully also her mind too:
“What do you think of women in wigs and would you be turned off if your wife/girlfriend/lover had to wear one?”
Responses (you can also read them in the comments section below):
Tokenminds: A friend of mine had to wear a wig whilst taking treatment for breast cancer and I can honestly say I didn’t notice it was a wig until she pointed it out. If a partner was undergoing the same treatment the wig wouldn’t trouble me at all. Neither would a patchy or bald scalp. If you love someone, and are in love with them, you find them attractive.
Johnny: Having to wear a wig, especially for a woman, is a serious matter, and any man with a sense of decency, sensitivity or respect will understand this. If it were my wife, the idea of a wig would be the least of my worries, I’d be a lot more invested in trying to make her feel better and would be looking after her. If it were my girlfriend, then I would definitely look past it, because there is more to this girl I’m dating than her looks, otherwise I wouldn’t be in a relationship with her. Being understanding and loving in such a time is the least that you can do for your partner or your friend.
Quoting what Tokenminds said in his comment, “If you love someone, and are in love with them, you find them attractive” and so having to wear a wig would not be something to sway my image of her.
