What are some reasons for hair loss?
Answer:
 

Genetics

A primary contributing factor is genetic predisposition of hormonal balances or imbalances. All of these factors can be inherited.

Stress & Trauma

Stress causes poor vitamins and nutrients to the hair follicle. This produces increased levels of testosterone, which converts to DHT.

Medications

Taking certain medications can contribute to hair loss. Some of these medications include:
 
  • Hormone Replacement Therapy Drugs
  • Birth Control
  • Estrogen Pills
  • Chemotherapy
 
  • Thyroid Disease Treatments
  • Blood Pressure Medication
  • Diabetes Medication
  • Heart Disease Medication
 

Alopecia

This is an autoimmune disorder that causes hair loss in men, women, and children of any age. The onset of hair loss is often sudden, random, and frequently recurrent.
There are four types of alopecia:
  • Alopecia Areata—Hair Loss in Patches, Usually Small & Round
  • Alopecia Totalis—Total Hair Loss on the Scalp
  • Alopecia Universalis—Total Hair Loss to the Body
  • Androgen Ethic Alopecia—Male & Female Pattern Baldness (Not Autoimmune)
Can I donate my hair now to make myself a wig for treatment?
Answer: Sadly we can not. A lot of our wigs are hand tied, which means someone is tying each hair. A custom piece, which would be hand tied, takes 12 weeks to ship. We can cut and style the wigs and have helped women get wigs that look just like their original hair.
