Human hair wigs vs. hair replacement treatments

As a woman, losing your hair can be devastating to your self-esteem and your confidence in your looks. However, there are products and solutions available nowadays to allow you to manage your hair loss, whether you want to cover it up or not. These solutions are designed to help you feel like yourself again, until your hair begins to grow back.

There are two main types of non-surgical hair replacement solutions available for female hair loss sufferers – human hair wigs or hair replacement treatments involving hair extensions. The benefits of both of these solutions are detailed below.

Human hair wigs

Human hair wigs have come a long way in the last few years. From ridiculous, artificial-looking hair pieces that were obviously not the wearer’s natural hair, these wigs have become natural-looking, comfortable and secure to wear. They are also customisable and available in a vast range of styles, colours and hair thicknesses, so that the wearer can find something that suits them perfectly.

Hair replacement treatments

These treatments don’t just involve normal hair extensions (which often look fake and tacky); they use natural-looking, fine extensions designed to blend into existing hair to thicken it and cover bald patches. The benefit of these solutions is that you don’t have to put them on and off every day, so you can wash and style your hair as normal and generally just get on with your life.
