Hair Loss Solutions for Medically Related Hair Loss

Hair Replacement for Permanent and Temporary Hair Loss

Studio 2 Hair Additions helps men, women and children experiencing Alopecia and other forms of medically-related hair loss such as chemotherapy, thyroid, or other medical disorders and treatments.

Chemotherapy, and other cancer treatments such as radiation, works because they kill rapidly dividing cells. Because hair grows relatively fast, these cells are attacked and the hair growth is temporarily stopped. Now that new anti-nausiant drugs are available to patients, many people living with cancer treatment are able to work and play almost like normal, except for the hair loss.

The hair loss brings a loss of privacy and self-image that many find harder to deal with than the actual treatment. For this situation, we recommend that you choose a wig from a selection of full cap wigs.

Medically Related Hair Loss Causes

Medical related hair loss can be attributed to several causes including:

  • Alopecia Totalis
  • Alopecia Universalis
  • Trichotillomania (compulsive hair pulling)
  • Chemotherapy
  • Radiation Treatments
  • Drugs and Surgery
  • Health and Stress
  • Chemical Damage
  • Accident Injury
  • Burns and Scars
  • Disaster trauma

(Compulsive Hair Pulling)

Many people have nervous habits, but people who pull out their hair compulsively can suffer overwhelming emotional and even physical impact. Hair pulling is a deep secret for most people who do it, but it is not especially rare. Psychiatrists estimate that 4 million Americans have what is called trichotillomania (trick-o-till-o-main-ee-a). If wigs or hair replacement is something you want to consider, the highly experienced consultants at Studio 2 Hair Additions in Memphis will help you find the best solution.

Hair Loss Alternatives

There are several hair loss treatment options available for those experiencing medically related hair loss. Some people choose hats, scarves or turbans, while others prefer a hair prosthesis or both.

Our custom hair replacements are uniquely different from the standard wigs or hair pieces that are readily available in department stores, online or mail order catalogs.

New technologies have made both human hair wigs and CyberHair (synthetic) wigs appear extraordinarily realistic because they can be fitted to the shape of your head. Human hair wigs are typically more expensive and require more maintenance. CyberHair wigs are less expensive (although some special models are more expensive), and are easier to style and wash. CyberHair wigs also dry more quickly, and require less care. We take pride in our selection of top of the line European and CyberHair options.

Hair prostheses are the latest technological advance in replacing lost hair. They are made to meet the exact and specific needs of the wearer. Form fitting and breathable, the flexible fit of the hair prosthesis can be styled just like natural hair. A high-quality prosthesis will always go undetected.

They are also designed to meet an individual’s specific hair loss needs, and to look totally natural and undetectable. Whatever the cause, every medically-related hair loss situation can be restored to the patient’s original hair style and look.
