Consider your investment in relation to your hair loss problem

April 24 [Thu], 2014, 15:08

There are many different forms of hair loss. Short term hair loss can be the result of issues including a medical condition, genetics or cancer treatment. Long term hair loss, which is also known as alopecia, can often have unknown causes but it is thought that it is related to deficiencies in the auto-immune system. Your hair loss problem will determine which type of wig you choose. Generally-speaking, short term hair loss sufferers - those who know that their own natural hair will return in a matter of months - tend to opt for ready-to-wear wigs in acrylic fibre which are cheaper in price. However, if you are particular about your scalp parting, you may want to opt for a monofilament top wig (natural-looking nylon top material) which allows hair to be parted any way. These products tend to be more expensive. Ready-to-wear wigs are available in regular and some in petite sizes and can be adjusted to fit you properly. If your hair loss problem is long-term or very significant, you might want to opt for a custom-made product. Unfortunately, investing in cheaper, ready-to-wear products can prove a false economy due to the extent of wear. Custom-made products can be created using real hair. As you would expect, custom-made real hair products have a price premium attached but wearers tend to find that the cost is outweighed by the emotional benefits of having hair that looks just like your own! To sum up, your hair loss problem should guide your investment in a ladies wig.

Use reputable, recommended aftercare products

Unfortunately, some wig wearers do not follow manufacturing guidelines and use regular, off-the-shelf aftercare products like shampoo or conditioner. The trouble is that these products may contain a high amount of alcohol and can damage acrylic fibres or dehydrate real hair strands. Remember: real hair wigs do not contain natural oils like natural hair growing out of the scalp. Therefore, using the right aftercare products can help maintain hair quality and prolong the lifespan of your wig. It is also important to help your wig hair retain the right level of moisture so that it doesn't frizz or break. This can be achieved by using a good quality reconstructor spray, available from reputable wig suppliers.
