Cancer & Alopecia Related Hair Loss
At Unique Wigs, for over 22 years, we have been assisting ladies, teens, children and a few men along the way hair loss due to cancer-related chemotherapy treatments, called anagen effluvium, is typically temporary but it is also emotionally devastating. It occurs because chemotherapy treatments affect all cells in the body, not just cancer cells. And hair follicles are particularly sensitive, shutting down during growth or anagen phase of the hair life cycle, leading to hair loss.
Most cancer patients will, at some point in their treatment, experience hair loss, but it depends upon the drugs and dosages. Hair loss can be sudden or slow, you may lose all of your hair or some of your hair and it can affect your eyebrows, eyelashes and even body hair.
The best way to address chemo-related hair loss is by planning ahead. Our experts can help you deal with the prospect of hair loss BEFORE it actually happens, so that you’re prepared with the tools you’ll need when the time comes. If possible, save some locks of hair, and/or bring into Unique Wigs a clear, well lite picture of your hair showing the color and style whereby we can match to one of the many styles, colors and brands we carry!
The word alopecia, quite simply, means hair loss. There are, however, many types of alopecia. The most common form is androgenetic alopecia. For men, this is referred to as male pattern thinning – thinning from the crown, or a receding hairline. For women it’s called female pattern thinning and is usually diffuse hair loss across the entire scalp. But hair loss is far more complicated for women than for men, largely due to myriad causes and a psychological effect that can be very difficult to accept.
Besides genetic female pattern thinning, there are many other reasons for women’s hair loss, including menopause-related hormonal imbalances, reactions to prescription drugs, lupus disease, post-partum/stress-related shedding (called telogen effluvium), Alopecia Areata (spotty hair loss), damaged hair from harsh chemical treatments (Scarring Alopecia), or even tight hair braiding (Traction Alopecia) that is common with African American women.
At Unique Wigs, you’ll find quiet and private consultation areas in which you can visit with our experienced professionals. They can help you choose a style and match your hair’s color and texture. Unique Wigs has many styles, colors, textures, and sizes from which to choose. People that lose their hair as a result of chemotherapy often find their scalps (and skin) are quite tender at first, so it’s important to try different types of wigs before making a decision. Our expert stylists will take the time to help you determine which wig is right for you and help you face the challenge head-on. And we can also help you with makeup and skin care in anticipation of very sensitive skin.
