Wearing a wig made with your own hair, or hair from family or friends, is comforting and very special.

A gift, literally from yourself, is the most meaningful thing you can give... or receive.

CUT & Send Hair

We know how important your hair is. You can rest assured. Our shipping department is staffed from 7am – 7pm.
The moment your hair arrives it is scanned into our system and we are notified immediately.

How to Cut Your Hair for a Wig

  1. The hair should be clean and dry.
  2. Before cutting hair, secure it in ponytails (or braids).
  3. As long as the hair all runs in the direction it grows, it will be good for wig-making.
  4. It is best to make ponytails in several sections around the head to maximize the length.
  5. Make sure they are tied tightly with hair-bands or rubber bands to keep it secure. At least 2 bands: 1/2-inch below the cut and another 2-inches lower.

How Much Hair is Needed?

You get $100 OFF for sending one or many ponytails (not for each one). We will supply any additional hair needed to match your color and texture.
Yes, we can use your hair even if it has been dyed, highlighted or permed.

How to Prepare & Ship Your Hair

Place ponytails (or braids) in a plastic bag or paper envelope.
Keep ponytails all in the same direction so they don't tangle.
Wrapping them in tissue paper can also prevent tangling.

Be sure to include a note with:

  • Your name
  • Contact information
  • The name of the recipient of the wig

Please send your hair and order to our secure facility*:

Caring and Comfort #108
2136 Ford Parkway
St Paul, Minnesota 55116
*There is always someone there to receive and sign for the package. The tracking is scanned and sent to our head office.

Check Your Insurance

It may help if you ask your doctor for a prescription.
Be sure to ‎ask us for a Medical Receipt if you need one.

Wig Prescription

Check Box

Know What to Ask

Insurance companies consider a wig as a ‎prosthetic device (the same as an artificial limb). ‎ Ask the doctor's office for a prescription for an Extra-Cranial Prosthesis. (That's medical jargon for a wig!) ‎‏ They can help find out if you are covered and for how ‏much, ‎just like with any other procedure. ‎

Check Box

TIP!

If they don't cover it for cancer, ask if it is covered for alopecia. ‎The term "Alopecia" (without a specific type specified) can refer to any hair-loss. In that case the doctor may write it up as Alopecia caused by cancer or chemo treatments.

We are Providers for:

  • Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota
  • PreferredOne of Minnesota
  • HealthPartners of Minnesota (limited coverage)
  • Minnesota Health Care Programs (MHCP)

Check Box

Ask for Out-of-Network Coverage

If your insurance requires you to use a provider in their network, ask if they have any provider that will make a custom wig with the hair you provide. If not, then they may allow Caring and Comfort to become your "out-of-network provider".

Fundraising Tips

These ideas have worked for our clients...

  • Social Media - Use your facebook, Twitter and similar social contacts to generate support amongst family, friends and others who often want to join in.

  • A place of worship, employment or regular hangouts of the recipient are good places to start the ball rolling. These are good places to get volunteers and sponsors for a fundraising event.
  • One of our clients held a fundraiser dance and it went terrific! The hall and music were donated. They charged admission and sold drinks raising most of the funds needed in one night. It was fantastic!!
  • "Split-The-Pot" - A 50/50 fundraiser simply involves the sale of raffle tickets with the proceeds being split evenly between the winner and your worthy cause. It's one of the simplest and easiest fundraisers you can do. People are always happy with a chance to win a cash prize.
  • “Think good, and it will be good.”

How to Measure For a Wig

How to Measure Video

Measuring works best with help from a friend.
Use a cloth tape measure.
If you still have hair, press it flat with a hairnet or bobby pins.
Measure several times and compare.
NOTE: Natural Hairline should start 4-fingers above you brow-bone (bottom of eyebrow).

Circumference

Around the Head

Start at the hairline in front, follow the hairline behind your ear. Then around the back to the bend in your neck, behind your other ear, and around the front to where you began.

Front to Back

Front to Back

Measure from your hairline in front, back over the top of your head, then down to the roots of your hair on the back of your neck (just below the indent where your skull meets your neck).

Ear to Ear

Ear to Ear Over the Top

Start in the crease where the ear attaches to your head. Bring your tape measure straight up directly over the top of your head and then straight down to the same position at your other ear.

Ear to Ear over front

Ear to Ear Over the Front

Start in the crease where the ear attaches to your head, bring the tape measure at an angle to the front hairline on your forehead and then back down to the same position at your other ear.

Temple to Temple back

Temple to Temple Around the Back

Measure from your temple (the corner of the hair just behind the eyes), around the back of your head, then back to the temple on the other side.

Nape of Neck

Nape of the Neck

Place the tape at the lowest point on the bone behind your ear (not in the crease behind your ear) and measure across the neck to the same bone on the opposite side.
