5 Best Medical Wigs for Hair Loss After an Illness

May 27, 2022 Human Hair Wigs 101 Views: 1938

Hair loss due to medical reasons is a serious concern for many people. It can be a traumatic experience, and it is important to know the different causes of hair loss.

One of the most common causes of hair loss is cancer. Cancer treatments like chemotherapy and radiation therapy can have an effect on the body, including hair follicles. The treatments can cause inflammation in the scalp, which leads to hair shedding or even baldness.

Chemotherapy drugs may also affect how much estrogen is produced by cells in the body, which can lead to thinning hair or baldness.

Women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) are more likely than other women to experience hair loss because of hormonal changes that affect how much testosterone their bodies produce. Pregnancy-related hormonal changes may also lead to significant hair loss.

Another most common form of medical hair loss is called Androgenetic Alopecia (AGA). People who have AGA have inherited sensitivity to DHT, which is a natural hormone in the body. DHT binds to receptor cells in the scalp and causes them to shrink over time. This shrinking will eventually lead to baldness or thinning hair.

Apart from the aforementioned illnesses, thyroid issues, kidney problems, hormonal imbalance, trauma, and a sedentary lifestyle can also contribute to hair thinning or active hair loss.

Why are Wigs Best to Cover Medical Hair Loss?

Wigs provide a reliable and relatively more affordable alternative to medications and hair transplants to cover hair loss.

Hair growth medications like Rogaine or Minoxidil have their own side effects, which might interfere with existing medical illnesses. Hair transplants, on the other hand, require big-budget, unlike wigs and hairpieces that are moderately priced.

Medical hair loss in most cases is not permanent, which is why opting for an affordable and easy-to-remove alternative hair system like wigs and toupees sounds more perfect.

However, since medical illnesses leave their mark on overall bodily function, including scalp skin, anything that could trigger scalp inflammation or irritations is not recommended; therefore, specially designed medical wigs must be used to cover hair loss due to medical reasons.

Here are a few best wigs made with comfortable fabric to support hair and scalp coverage after an illness;

Top Comfort | Silk Top 100% hand-tied Cap with Silicone Wig for Sensitive Scalp

Top Comfort is a silk top human hair wig that is perfect for those with total or partial hair loss, such as alopecia. This comfortable wig features a handmade skin top that is breathable and soft on the skin, making this wig great for sensitive scalps.

This wig is equipped with ample medical-grade silicone panels throughout the cap, including at the front, sides, and back. This ensures a secure hold without the need for any adhesive. The addition of special silicone panels is for those having sensitive scalps who couldn’t bear the pressure of clips or combs.

Zara | Layered Bob Brunette Balayage Remy Human Hair Mono Top Wig | Lace Front

Zara's cap is a combination of a monofilament top and a lace front, which provides a natural hairline and a long-lasting top. The pre-cut style on Zara has longer face-framing pieces of hair at the front and shorter choppy pieces at the back and sides.

This cap has velvet ear tabs and a nape made with the softest fabric and bendable wire that gives a comfortable yet secure fit without causing scalp irritation, itching, or redness. Adjustable Velcro straps on sides ensure an adhesive-free fitting.

Perfection | Silk Top Brunette Balayage 100% Hand-tied Human Hair Wig | Lace Front

Perfection is a silk top wig, fully hand-tied, and has combs around and straps at the back. It offers a realistic parting, just like the hair grows up from your scalp. The hair of this wig is made from 100% Remy human hair, meaning it can be heat styled any way you like.

Each hair on this wig is hand-tied to an ultra-thin stocking to provide the most comfortable base cap for those having a sensitive scalp. Adjustable straps further allow the wearer to adjust the size according to their head’s circumference.
