When a woman begins to experience hair loss on any level, questions begin to surface without knowing who to turn to. Hair loss can be stressful enough without the challenge of navigating through jargon and medical terminology. Before you begin to panic over your hair loss or wigs, consider the following commonly asked questions surrounding the subject.
Why am I suffering from hair loss?
Hair loss can be caused by a number of different factors in women. One of the leading causes of hair loss in women is chemotherapy and radiation. Other factors include hormones, stress, medication, and genetics. If you believe you are beginning to suffer from hair loss, or it could become an issue later on, talk with your primary doctor to determine the cause and possible treatment options.
What signs should I look for?
You will typically begin to notice more hair being left in brushes, shower drains, and your pillow. You scalp may also begin to feel tender, sore, or itchy as the hair loss begins.
Should I avoid hair products when suffering from hair loss?
If you believe hair loss will become an issue, avoid processing and coloring your hair as well as using heat products.
When should I purchase my wig?
If you know that hair loss will become a problem due to medical treatment, start looking as soon as possible to find a wig that works best for you. If the hair loss has come as a surprise, use scarves or hats to cover and protect your head as you search for a human hair or synthetic wig.
Will I be able to style my new wig?
Custom human hair wigs provide the styling option for clients. Not only can human hair wigs be styled with heat products from time to time, they can also be cut and colored to create the perfect look for the wearer.
Can I sleep in my wig?
It is not recommended that a wig be worn during sleep because of potential damage that can be caused. Store your wig on a wig stand in the evenings to keep the shape of the wig as well as protect the fibers.
