Los Angeles Lace Front Wigs

Hair Restoration of California

Should you wear lace wigs if you have alopecia?

b2ap3_thumbnail_lace-wig.jpg

There are many different types of wigs on the market, and different foundations, or the base of the wig, too. One such foundation that is currently popular and trendy is the lace wig.

Lace wigs, or lace-front wigs--when only the front of the base is lace and the rest is capped--are a great choice for women who want not only natural-looking hair, but also want versatility in styling. When the base cap of the wig is simply lace, it’s easy to hide the fact that the person is wearing a wig should she choose to pull her hair up for a particular style.

However, this style wig is not typically recommended for women with severe hair loss or alopecia.

When a full lace wig is placed on a person, strands of your existing hair are tied to the sheer lace base. This constant tugging can cause further damage to your hair if you are already experiencing hair loss. But, if you are one of the people who have balding issues in only certain areas of your scalp, and do not have alopecia or weak hair follicles, then lace or lace-front wigs may be a proper choice for you.

You still have great choices, however. Full cap wigs are easier to wear, can come in a variety of styles and color, and there are some that are especially made for those suffering from alopecia or other types of hair loss. Virtuesse, by Virtual Reality, is also a wonderful choice for those who are looking for something more custom-made and flexible.

Here in Los Angeles, it is easy to get caught up in the Hollywood hairstyles of glamour, but remember that there is a team of experts behind every women with luscious locks going down the red carpet. You do have options, and no matter your needs, the experienced HRC staff can help meet them for you. Contact us now to book your FREE hair and scalp consultation, or call us at 800-966-9505.

Solutions for Hair Loss as a Result of Alopecia

Alopecia areata is an autoimmune disease that results in the loss of hair. It occurs when your immune system accidentally attacks your hair follicles, although scientists to this day do not understand why. This disease affects almost 2% of the entire U.S. population and it happens more often to younger people, although anyone at any age and gender can be affected.

Alopecia is also cyclical, meaning hair can fall out and then regrow over time, and fall out again. Only a small percentage of people affected with alopecia may never regrow hair again, and that depends on a variety of cases, like family history, onset of the disease at a very early age, extreme hair loss, among other things. In some more extreme cases, loss of body hair may also occur. Please talk to a hair loss clinic to see if you may be susceptible to alopecia totalis.

The disease is diagnosed by a doctor through a series of questions inquiring about your family history and your own pattern of hair loss. A small physical examination may be required. If the diagnosis still remains unclear, then a blood or hair test may be employed.

While there is no cure yet for this disease, a number of people diagnosed with this have found inspirational ways to live a wonderful life. It’s understandable that a person losing their hair on and off again can be frustrating, and many people have reported feeling anger, loss and grief, among many others. But there are a variety of products, methods and hair replacement techniques to help those affected.
