Swim Hair FAQs

You’ve Got Questions, We’ve Got Answers!


What is a Cranial Prosthesis and How Long Will it Last?

A cranial hair prosthesis is a custom hair system specifically designed for patients who have lost their hair due to medical conditions. These conditions include chemotherapy, alopecia totalis, alopecia areata, trichotillomania, and other conditions resulting in hair loss.

With proper care, you can expect Swim Hair to last 12 months or longer! Swim Hair wigs are created with high-quality 100% virgin human hair. Our non-synthetic hair won’t break down and reacts to the environment like natural, un-treated hair — because it is! To ensure your Swim Hair lasts as long as possible, be sure to follow our waterproof wig care instructions.


Is this Reimbursable?

If you are going to pay out-of-pocket or upfront initially, place your order online. After placing your order, email with your order number. Let us know that you need a copy of your invoice for your cranial prosthesis prescription.

We will provide you with your invoice containing a notation that states Cranial Prosthesis and our tax ID number.

Send all documentation to your health insurance provider.

This includes your doctor’s prescription, completed insurance claim form, invoice from, and any other necessary forms.


Is Swim Hair Waterproof?

Of course! Swim Hair is an entirely waterproof wig, using a swim cap connected to the hairpiece to completely cover and protect your natural hair from water. This means that colored or textured hair won’t mutate when exposed to pool chemicals, and your hair will remain unaffected by salt, chlorine, or other chemicals in swimming water. You have entered a new era of swimming and luxury.

The Swim Hair Splash Cap is made with double layers of protection! Direct impacts of water like waterfalls, showers, rain, splashes etc are perfect!

Long exposure under water can result in water leakage.

How Do I Care For My Swim Hair?

When you purchase your waterproof wig, you’ll get the complete care instruction guide, but there are a few basic things you need to know. We recommend you wash your wig after each use — simply keep it on your head and wash in the shower the same way you would your natural hair! Once the wig is clean, use the Swim Hair hanger to hang and air dry for at least 24-hours. When the wig is dry, we recommend storing it in the Swim Hair cache carrier to keep it clean and protected.
