“It was so exciting, my hands were shaking with excitement when unpacking.
So nice to have my own hair back and put it on.”
Doesn't my hair have to be saved before the first chemo?
A – Then the hair is not yet affected by the chemo, and
B – It is just a little less difficult to cut it short in one go, because it will probably soon fall out altogether.
We'll email you the cutting instructions.
Won't it take a very long time for my own-hairband to be ready?
But I never wear a hat...
Is it really much more comfortable than a wig?
If I have thick, long hair can I only cut some off, so then it won't be left ultra short?
I already cut it off before I discovered the site. Is that bad?
The falling out has already started and my hair is suddenly very dry. What now?
I am too anxious to completely cut my hair, can I just get a hairband of donated hair?
Does a hairband require a lot of maintenance?
I'm 86, can I still have my own-hairband? Or is it only for young people?
Do you also make an own hairband for men/boys?
How do I maintain the hairband?
You only need to wash your Toupim own-hairband when necessary. Washing it approximately once every 2 or 3 months is usually fine, as your hair will no longer get greasy from your scalp.
If required, you can wash the hair (but not the fabric of the headband) with shampoo by holding the headband. You can also wash the fabric of the headband with ordinary soap or laundry detergent while holding the hair.
If the hair on the Toupim own-hairband becomes static, put some water on your fingertips and smooth them over the hair. You can style the hair the way you used to, but we advise you to only add a little of the styling product as otherwise it may get greasy.
