Do you sell your services online?
You would think they were all daft! If Versacchi thought it could work, we would do it. However any wig or hairpiece out of a box looks exactly that... just another aged tired 'one size fits all' wig or hairpiece out of a box. Aren't you worth more?
Are advanced appointments necessary to visit Versacchi?
Rest assured you will never be rushed or made to feel like an imposition on our time. Courtesy and respect are hallmarks at Versacchi. Please call the care line nearest you to set up a convenient private appointment: Dublin 01 4900570 or Cork 021 4627400

I've been told I'm going to temporarily lose my hair during chemo, what should I do?
Why do I lose my hair from Chemotherapy?
This means the medication also targets your hair - since the follicles producing your hair are producing very quickly dividing cells as well. You may lose all your hair or it may just thin out, depending on your treatments. Fortunately, this hair loss usually isn't permanent and your hair should begin to grow back within 4 to 6 months of your final prescribed chemo treatment.
Do you use real or synthetic hair?
What is considered "normal" for daily hair loss?
Will people suspect or know my hair has changed?
How long will my hair replacement actually last?
When will my own hair grow back?
In some cases, people say their hair became curlier after it grew back, or actually appeared a little darker. But for most people, the re-grown hair is essentially the same as it was before chemo. Your hair usually will grow completely back within 4-5 months.
Is it possible to prevent hair loss during chemo treatments?
Unfortunately, these techniques did little more than cause headaches and have been abandoned in most settings. Nutrition is paramount however! Your body is undergoing severe stress with the chemotherapy treatments. You should talk with a licensed accredited nutritionist to find out what are the best foods to eat.
We can't by law give out specific information in this field, but we do highly recommend asking your oncology nurse on the proper foods and nutritional supplements to consider.
