As a young child, I used to have dreams where I would look in the mirror, and realise that I had no teeth. I would also often dream similarly about having no hair, or ears. It was really quite frightening to look at myself, even though it was a dream, and see a head of patchy hair or a toothless smile. Imagine what it must feel like for women who look in the mirror and notice the hair on their heads thinning, and even disappearing. This post is all about female hair loss. the challenges, and the solutions.
There are lots of different types of hair loss. It can be “thinning” of the hair or involve a total loss of hair. It can be gradual or sudden; it can affect the old and the young. Hair loss can be genetic, or as a result of extreme stress, a medical condition or treatment. This doesn’t make it any less troubling. We all know what it’s like to have a bad hair day, and go out feeling like you don’t look your best – imagine that feeling multiplied tenfold every single day.
Hair loss, or the medical term, alopecia, is common. It’s estimated that about 50% of women over the age of 65 experience female-pattern baldness – the most common type of hair loss.
Another, less common reason for hair loss, is trichotillomania – the pulling of one’s own hair. This is a similar behavior to those found in people with OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.)None of the causes of hair loss are anything to be ashamed of, but we all want luscious, feminine hair that we can feel confident in.
Thankfully, there is a solution that can help all women with any kind of hair loss. We at Hair Extension Experts have looked far and wide for a product that can alleviate the discomfort and lack of confidence experienced by many women. We found and now supply, hair pieces made of 100% human remy hair, in a variety of colours. Many pieces designed for this purpose require the client to shave much of their remaining hair in order to fit the piece. We don’t want that! Imagine losing your hair, and then feeling compelled to shave even more of it off! It just seemed a little bit traumatic. That is why the pieces we use, do not require any shaving of the hair, and are fitted with the intention to allow natural regeneration and growth of your own hair, assuming that is possible. They are fitted by attaching them to the remaining hair, and allow for a comfortable, natural looking effect without any further removal of your own hair. They are also extremely durable and will not blow away or be pulled off, so there is no need to feel like you’re wearing hair that isn’t yours, or that you think looks like a wig. We promise not to let you leave until you are happy and confident in your new hair.
There is nothing to be ashamed of, and you can have your confidence and hair-pride back in no time if hair loss is a problem for you.
