Dear Sun Spots: Would you or anyone know where I can get a wig? I’m taking scalp treatments and am seeking an inexpensive wig that I could use when going grocery shopping, etc. Thanks for any help. – L. Grant, Auburn.

Answer:
Having verified you are not seeking a wig due to chemotherapy treatments, Sun Spots has located the following resources that will hopefully assist you. For starters, you might consider contacting local Maine companies:

• Hair Looks International By Solange, Market Place Mall, 675 Main St., Lewiston 04240, 782-3059. They carry some inexpensive wigs and are open Mondays from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Tuesday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturdays from 6 a.m. to 1 p.m.

• Crown of Beauty Wig & Hair Salon, Route 133, 1285 Franklin Road, Jay, 04239, 645-3772. They carry wigs, hair extensions and clip-on extensions and you should contact them for more details. They are open Monday to Friday and Saturdays for proms and weddings. They are closed Thursdays. Call them for more information.

• Madeline’s Hair Replacement Clinic, 15 Buxton Road, Saco, ME 04072, 282-1321, 800-282-1321. Sun Spots used Madeline’s when undergoing chemo treatment seven years ago, and loved her chic wig from the time she used it. It was worth seeing the surprise on her oncologist’s face when he saw the full head of natural hair where there should have been none.
