Hi Beth! I also had 3 different wigs. One I got from the ACS. It was okay but made me look older than what I felt that I was. lol The 2nd one I got from a cancer hospital that "specialized" in wigs. roflmao The 3rd one my friend that is a beautician brought to me. It was the one that I wore (when I wore one) and no one knew that it wasn't my real hair. My suggestion would be to go to your beautician and ask him/her what type she suggests. Then, once you get the wig, take it back to your beautician for styling. There is also a thing called a "scalp cap" that you can wear underneath the wig to help w/ the itching. To have the insurance pay for the wig, you need to use the words "carnial prothesis" when completing the paperwork. Unreal, huh?! Remember, you can have fun picking out whatever style and color that you have always wanted. I have to be honest and tell you that I usually only wore the wig when it was necessary and as soon as I could, it came off, along w/ my prothesis. I hated both!
Hang in there.
