In the early stages take advantage of hair makeup such as Fullmore which colors the pinkness of the scalp to cover hair that’s no longer dense. Certain hair styles may also disguise thinner patches, depending on the location. For example, bangs can sometimes add an illusion of volume to thinning or receding hairlines.
For the crown and thinning areas around the face, lightweight extensions called Medi Connections can be fitted and hand-blended to these areas and add extra volume and thickness. This is a great option for women with mild Alopecia or the early stages of female pattern hair loss. Medi Connections boost existing hair while allowing for natural regrowth, normal washing, styling and every day activities.
In more dramatic cases we can use the Intralace system, which uses a very fine mesh to introduce new natural hair into existing hair. This is a preferred option for women with moderate to chronic hair loss or thinning. It’s made of a breathable mesh and integrated and incorporated very naturally. This system is preferable to wigs for the modern woman who can budget for this lifestyle choice. It affords women the opportunity to participate in activities which might be otherwise limited in a wig, such as swimming, windy outdoor events or sports.
Women effected by hair loss should remember that whatever the case, there’s hope! Although hair loss can be devastating physically and emotionally, there are many options available for an array of issues and lifestyles. Most importantly, one should maintain a positive attitude while considering options and finding a solution.
