A Hair prosthesis (or cranial prosthesis), is a custom-made wig specifically designed for patients who have lost their hair as a result of medical conditions or treatments, such as alopecia areata, alopecia totalis, trichotillomania, chemotherapy, or any other clinical disease or treatment resulting in hair loss. The terminology is used when applying for medical insurance or tax deduction status.
The process of dealing with hair loss can be emotionally traumatic and hard to deal with. At MyWigsAndWeaves.com we have compassionate representatives whom work daily with clients who are experiencing hair loss. In the USA, over 30 million women are dealing with hair loss and the number is rapidly increasing. We strive to find the best solution that will make you feel comfortable and help you transition into a hair system that will look and feel natural. Many prefer to match their new cranial prosthesis medical wig to their current hair color. We can send your a hair color ring at no cost, so that you may compare to your own hair color or even show to your hair stylist for a second opinion. For additional help, please call 1-800-714-3189
