Illness & Medications

Lots of illnesses and health conditions, aside from cancer/chemo, can cause your hair to thin out. Lupus, Diabetes, IBS, Crohn’s Disease, and Anemia are just a few. And almost worse than the health conditions themselves, are some of the medications used to ‘treat’ them. Almost every medication lists hair loss as a side effect. I’m not a Pharmacist, so I can’t tell you why or how this is happening, but I can say there are a bunch of fabulous options for replacing your lost hair.

Wigs or Full Cranial Hair Prosthetics cover large areas that have high percentages of loss. They usually attach or stay on temporarily, and you put them on and take them off yourself.

Hair Pieces or Partial Hair Prosthetics come in a wide variety of sizes and shapes so that each individual’s situation can be remedied. These can be temporary or semi-permanently attached (left on for a longer period of time and professionally maintained). They either have solid bases, or if they have an open base (with openings for your existing hair) they are called Integration Pieces.

90% are Human Hair, with the exception of some ‘Blends’ and the Micro Point Solutions, and are chosen in the proper color, length, and texture. Some are totally custom made just for you. All methods are tested, and safe when proper care is taken.
