Time for a Transition - Should I just wear a wig
As part of the gender transitioning process, many transgender women and men choose to undergo hormone therapy. At UniWigs, we often get the question, "Should I try to grow my hair out while continuing hormone therapy, or should I just wear a wig?".
For female-to-male (FTM) transgenders, to transition, testosterone can be administered to suppress feminine characteristics and help to grow facial hair, stronger muscle tone, and a deeper voice. However, through hormone therapy, many FTM transgender people fall into the same predicament... male pattern baldness.
It is well documented that up to 90% of men will eventually experience male pattern baldness. For FTM transgenders in transition, however, the effects are amplified by the effects of DHT - a chemical byproduct of testosterone hormone treatments.
Unfortunately, there's no way to minimize this. Many transgender men often describe the experience of baldness as a right-of-passage, but at the same time become disheartened as the hair-loss is usually not reversible.
So back to the question, "Should I try to grow my hair out while continuing hormone therapy?". This can be answered with a resounding "YES!"
