Hair loss presents problems not only in terms of looks but the effect on an individual’s self-esteem. Hair loss is not a new problem, but where baldness in the past was considered a natural part of the aging process, today men and women associate baldness with “growing old.”
Despite being a fact of life for many, hair loss still makes people self-conscious about their appearance. For centuries, men and women suffering from baldness have opted to wear toupees and wigs. Hair plays a vital part of a person’s overall appearance and self confidence.
Hairpieces and wigs can look very natural, however they need to be of high quality and done by professionals. Those who wear wigs and toupees without having the proper advice can have issues. Over time, hair replacement and hairpieces have developed to look more like the real thing – but there are also other hair replacement systems that have been developed, providing bald individuals with the chance of living a normal life free from ridicule.
Facts on hair replacement systems
As mentioned above, the most popular and least invasive forms of hair replacement are wigs, toupees and hairpieces, used to cover bald areas of the head.
Some products, such as Nioxin, can slow down hair loss and encourage the growth of new hair. However, different people react differently to various medications. If a topical ointment is enough to encourage the growth of new hair, great! But, sadly, that’s not the case for everyone.
