What is Alopecia?

Alopecia occurs when the body’s immune system attacks its own hair follicles. There is a range of severity of hair loss with alopecia from small, smooth bald patches on the scalp to, in rare cases, complete baldness including all body hair. It often occurs in people younger than twenty years old, but it can occur at any age. Most people with alopecia will regrow their own hair in the future. Some have this hair loss permanently. Alopecia cannot be cured, but there are several treatments available to try to encourage the body to regrow its hair. Unlike other medical diagnoses, alopecia is painless, non-contagious, and does not come attached to other health issues.

Alopecia Patients & MyWigsAndWeaves

If you have alopecia, you may want to use a hairpiece while waiting for your own hair to regrow. A hairpiece is made of human or synthetic hair and can be temporarily attached to your scalp covering the bald spot. If you have complete baldness, we offer full wigs. Hair is an important part of your identity. That’s why its loss can be emotionally traumatic. We understand this and can work with you tenderly and gently during this hard time. And we can handle your needs individually and personally so that you get the size, color, and style that you need.
