Whatever the cause behind a person’s hair loss, it needs to be addressed quickly and treated properly.
In the past wigs carried a stigma; you wore a wig if you had hair loss. This is further from the truth. There are many people who wear custom wigs to change their style. So instead of changing their own hair color, they purchase a wig with the color or highlights they desire.
Unlike hair loss, hair breakage is usually self-inflicted and preventable. Hair breakage is caused by multiple factors. Hair that has been over-processed through chemical processing, braiding the hair too tight (traction alopecia), wearing a ponytail and pulling the hair straight back instead of contouring the hair around the shape of your head, using hair appliances without using a heat protectant, and lack of proper hair maintenance can all contribute to hair breakage.
