BRIEF SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

A hairpiece called Cam-it was designed to be used as an alternative to wigs.

FIG. A1 depicts the invention entitled Cam-it. It displays the headband with synthetic hair attached.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

A hairpiece called Cam-it was designed to be used as an alternative to wigs during the inventor's struggle with cancer. The invention uses two products: 1) A Cloth Headband, which is normally used to pull hair back off the face and 2) Synthetic Hair Extensions, which are used to extend hair from a short hairstyle to medium- or long-hairstyle by Hair Salons. The inventor chose a cloth headband for this invention instead of a hard headband for comfort. The inventor tried wigs and searched for other products that would be more comfortable however, none worked or existed. This is why Cam-it was designed for that comfort because when hair is lost directly from the root products that are hard or rough to the touch feel strange against the skin.

The hairpiece was designed to have the headband worn in a circular fashion around the head and the synthetic hair extensions attached with hot glue to the headband in a circular fashion also starting from one temple point to the other temple point. A portion of the headband on the forehead about 4.5 inches in length is left exposed. The exposed portion was designed also for comfort plus it makes the hairpiece look more natural under a hat or scarf. The synthetic hair extensions were chosen over human hair extensions because of cost.

When it comes to hygiene Cam-it can be washed also cut, blow-dried as well as worn curling or straight. The inventor wore this product throughout her chemotherapy treatments for almost a year. The inventor would like to share this product with others that desire another choice during their journey and struggle.
