Alopecia and Hair Loss

Alopecia hair lossThe stylists at Wigs and Hair Solutions have been trained to handle hair loss situations due to a number of reasons. Whether it be from a medical condition or health condition, our stylists are trained to handle any of these situations. One of the common causes of hair loss we see in our salon is Alopecia.

 

Alopecia is an autoimmune disease that can cause patchy to wide spread hair loss in a patient. The disease commonly occurs in those who have relatives or ancestors that also suffered from the disease. Alopecia occurs in three different forms:

  • Alopecia areata- Hair loss occurs in patches.
  • Alopecia totalis- Hair loss occurs throughout the scalp.
  • Alopecia universalis- Hair loss all over the body.

 

Hair loss from Alopecia typically begins with patchy, small, smooth, round circles throughout the scalp. For some, the hair loss stops there. For others, this is only the beginning of their hair loss. There are several medications available to help those suffering from Alopecia and the use of a few different medications at a time has shown an increase in hair growth in some patients. The entire process of hair loss and regrowth tends to occur more than once for patients before the disease completely leaves their system. Other patients may never have full re-growth.

 

For those dealing with hair loss from Alopecia, there is Wigs and Hair Solutions. If you are dealing with full hair loss, our stylists will work with you to create a custom human hair wig that suits your style. If you are only suffering from partial hair loss, we offer human hair toppers and partial pieces that blend in with your natural hair and mask the hair loss. When you walk into our salon, you never have to worry about feeling weird or abnormal because of your hair loss. We believe all women are beautiful, no matter how much hair they have on their head, but we know that having hair will help our clients feel more like themselves.
