If you are suffering from Alopecia or you are undergoing chemotherapy that causes your hair to start falling out, please don’t be sad. It is definitely hard, but keep your chin up and don’t let hair loss makes you lose your confidence. There are several hair replacement systems you can choose to help you cope with hair loss. Every method has its own advantages and the effectiveness will depend on your hair follicles and scalp condition. To help you make your choice, here are some of the best methods you can do to replace your hair.
Hair transplant is a surgical method where the doctor will move some hair from an area with plenty of hair to the bald area that you want to cover. When the hair has been moved, it will grow longer naturally just like what normal hair should be. This is a permanent solution to cover baldness because the doctors will prescribe some medication and topical treatment to prevent another hair loss in the future. Since this method requires moving your hair from one area to the other, it can only be performed on people that still have lots of hair in some areas.
Fashion wig is the simplest solution to cover baldness. Wig is also pretty cheap and it comes with a lot of style and colors. You can choose whether you want to use natural or synthetic hair. Wig with natural hair is more expensive and it needs more treatment. But in the same time, it also looks more natural than the synthetic one. In the past, wig looked so ridiculous and sometimes it even resembled bird nest on our head. But now, wig is so light and beautiful. Even people who don’t experience baldness use it to transform their looks in a blink of an eye. As long as you use it right, no one’s going to realize that the hair is not real.
Cranial prosthesis is actually similar with wigs. The only difference is it is mostly used by people with medical problems. The inside of the prosthesis is made of special material like silk, polyurethane or microline that gives more comfort to the skin. A person whose baldness is caused by medical condition usually has more sensitive and gentle skin. That’s why the prosthesis has to be custom made so that it can fit their head perfectly and will not cause any skin problems or discomfort.
