The gift of hair–from women who’ve been there.

For many women, hair loss is the most troublesome side effect of chemotherapy. A nice wig can ease that concern, but well-made wigs are expensive and may not be covered by insurance. Meanwhile, women who’ve finished their cancer treatments are often unsure as to what to do with their barely-used wigs. That’s why we created The Wig Exchange.

The Wig Exchange is based in Westchester County, New York. Wig donations have been received from cancer survivors in New York, Connecticut, Illinois, Indiana, Florida, Missouri and New Jersey. Currently, we serve clients in the Tri-State area, though we have sent wigs to other states and even other countries!

Thanks to generous donors, The Wig Exchange now has over 170 wigs. As of January 2013, approximately 40 of these are currently placed with clients of our program, leaving us plenty of available inventory to help other women.

Every wig we receive is professionally cleaned and reconditioned, so it’s completely hygienic and looks like new.

Our program coordinator, a cancer survivor herself, will explain everything you need to know about wearing and caring for your wig. Our partners can help with styling and adjustments.

All we ask is that you return your wig to The Wig Exchange when you no longer need it, so we can help as many women as possible, and to pay a nominal fee to help us cover the cost of cleaning the wig so we can prepare it for the next woman.
