Alopecia Wigs: A Solution Female Hair Loss

Alopecia is a hair loss condition that can vary in the severity. From patches that come and go to permanent hair loss. Many believe that this is the reason you have to consider the choices that you have to allow for exactly what is happening to you and the look you want to have. There are three main types of alopecia:

  • Androgenetic Alopecia: Often referred to as female pattern thinning. This particular type of alopecia is generally attributed to genetic factors. The hair becomes thinner all over the scalp and unlike men, the hairline typically does not recede.

  • Alopecia areata: patches of hair missing on the scalp and body

  • Alopecia totalis: baldness on the scalp only

  • Alopecia universalis: baldness on the scalp and body

What do need to you know about alopecia areata? Alopecia areata is a very common hair loss condition that results in the loss of hair on the scalp as well as other areas. Usually it starts with one or more small, round, smooth patches. It occurs in both men and women and of all ages, but often young people are affected most.

Normally, hair follicles on the scalp are producing 30 millimeters of hair each day. With alopecia areata, the hair follicles affected slow down production dramatically, and become very small and then grow no visible hair above the surface of the scalp for months or years.

While your hair is in this hibernation state, the follicles remain alive below the surface. They are able to resume normal hair growth once they get the appropriate signal from the body.

Some people develop only a few bare patches and re-grow them within a year, even without treatment. Even though the scalp is the most commonly affected area, any hair bearing site can be affected alone or together with the scalp. In some, the condition spreads and affects large areas of the scalp for long periods of time. In others, the entire scalp is lost or all on the entire body is lost. No matter how widespread the hair loss, the hair follicles remain alive below the skin surface, and the possibility of hair re-growth remains.

What signal triggers alopecia to start or stop?

Itís not clearly known, but an immunological signal is involved in the start or stopping of aloepcia. Current research suggests that in alopecia areata something triggers the immune system to suppress the hair follicle. It isnít known what this trigger is, or whether it comes from outside the body like a virus, or from inside like a hormone. Those who suffer from this may also have antibodies directed against other normal parts of the body even though there is no disease or disability associated with these other antibodies.

Is alopecia areata due to nerves?
No, alopecia areata is not a nervous disorder and those who have it have not caused it and have no control over its course.

"I absolutely love my new wig. The hair flows so naturally, and the highlights you added are perfect.

I was able to wear my wig (and my smile) to work this past Monday. Nobody asked me where I purchased my wig. They asked me where I got my hair cut."
