DID YOU KNOW THAT YOUR INSURANCE MAY COVER THE COST OF YOUR WIG? 
When you purchase a wig for a medical reason, you should check to see if your insurance company can cover some or all of the cost. Here is a list of things you will need to provide for insurance reimbursement.
  • Proof of purchase (paid receipt, check, credit card bill)
  • Vendor or store’s Tax ID #
  • A prescription from your doctor for a “hair prosthesis”.  Do not use the word “wig” as it may be confused for cosmetic purposes
  • Your insurance’s Procedure Code # (most common is A9282)
CARING FOR YOUR WIG
Gently brush wig or hairpiece to remove teasing and tangles using cold water – never hot – soak your wig in a small sink or basin.  Mix in a small amount of your desired wig shampoo. Let the wig soak for a minute or so, gently swishing your wig in the sink or basin using up and down motions.
Do not rub, twist or wring your wig. You may, however, lightly press the wig up and down to achieve the swishing motions through the water. Rinse thoroughly in cold water.  When done, pat out excess water with a towel.  Again, do not wring or twist. Never brush or comb until your wig until it is completely dry – you may only use your fingers to place hair into place .  Allow your wig to dry at room temperature by draping wig over a tall skinny bottle or canister.
Never place your wet wig on your wig stand, styro wig head or canvas wig block; this will cause your wig cap to stretch, thus, increasing  the size, permanently.
When your wig is completely dry, it is ready to be brushed and combed into style.  Do not use a hair dryer, blow dryer or curling iron on synthetic wigs.  Avoid excess heat or sudden bursts of heat like opening your oven door. It is also wise to keep away from hot pots of water or soups on cooktops or straining hot foods.  All of these types of activities can cause irreversible damage to your new wig.
