Fortunately, today, the hair care industry has a slew of solutions including hair extensions or hair bundles, human hair lace wigs, lace wigs or lace front wigs and many more for women with Alopecia. The industry understands that such a condition can cause a great impact on the self-confidence as well as the personality of anyone having the disorder.   



What is really the meaning of Alopecia?

Alopecia is a condition that leads to hair loss. It is an autoimmune disorder that causes unpredictable hair loss, and it affects quite a significant number of people. Approximately 6.8 million people have Alopecia in the United States of America.

A considerable number of people experience hair loss in small patches. Others have their hair falling out in few patches while in some cases the condition becomes extreme.  Sometimes, the condition can lead to a complete hair loss on the scalp a condition known as Alopecia totalis or in severe cases, one can experience hair loss on the whole body, and this is known as Alopecia universalis.

Alopecia can affect anyone, whether old or young, whether female or male. It can be a genetic disorder where you get to inherit the trait from your family. Some studies also show that stress can be a causative agent. However, some hair practices can cause Alopecia, as well.


When it comes to the treatment, there is no cure for this disorder. Although, doctors recommend some forms of treatment to manage the hair loss. The most common type of treatment is using corticosteroids, which are powerful immune suppressants. They help suppress the immune system, which slows down the effects of the condition since Alopecia is an autoimmune disease.

An autoimmune disease regarding Alopecia means that the immune system attacks the body's hair follicles. The cells of the immune system attack cells of other parts of the body. Other medications can be used which either promote hair growth or suppress the immune system.

Regarding the aesthetic aspect, people with Alopecia may require to wear sunscreen to protect the skin, wraparound glasses to safeguard the eyes, use an ointment to keep the nose membranes moist. In addition, there are hair extensions and wigs for women with Alopecia.

Alopecia is not contagious, and it does not make people sick.

However, it affects people emotionally, which can lead to stress and depression. The condition is more of traumatic disease, and this is why the hair care industry needed to address the emotional aspect of hair loss.

For this reason, a comprehensive array of hair extensions and wigs for women with balding are available in the market. All forms of Alopecia can cause permanent hair loss, thus the reason why hair extensions become popular in the market.
