Medical conditions such as alopecia and cancer are devastating not only to the body but to a person’s self-esteem. Whether someone is in the process of going through a hardship or has survived such an ordeal, the physical reminder of shedding and thinning hair can be a lot to bear.
Fortunately, there is an option for women who are looking to improve their appearance and lift their self-esteem during trying times. The popularity of lace wigs have given many women suffering from hair loss a natural looking option.
Lace Wig Cap Types
Lace-wigs have evolved to allow multiple cap types depending on the amount of hair that client has. At times, French or Swiss lace may be more difficult to apply when there is little to no hair. Silk tops and thin skin are all cap types that work best for those suffering from hair loss.
The silk top cap acts as the scalp by matching the color of the scalp so that it appears hair is coming directly from your scalp. This cap type also helps to hide knots which have the same result of making hair appear from the scalp.
Full thin skin caps on lace-wigs are especially made for those with hair loss or who are fully bald. Since lace-wig caps typically have hair as a base to lie on top off, it makes it harder for those with complete hair loss. A full thin skin cap acts as the scalp and fits snuggly to the head. Those who are allergic to lace use this as an option as well. Many caps for those with hair loss have some sort of non-slip feature.
While the wig cap itself is the most important aspect for women suffering from hair loss, additional features can provide an added natural look. In addition, these added features can match the client’s hair before hair loss so that they can return to a state of normalcy.
Baby hairs are a great option to add to a lace-wig for people who either had baby hair before or have fine hair in general. The baby hairs create a natural looking hairline and help to spice up a boring ponytail. hd lace frontal wig
Another feature that is exclusive to a custom lace-wig is the addition of a widow’s peak. The widow’s peak is that v shaped tuff of hair on the hairline. Some people do not have widow’s peak as they are genetically passed down. However, some lace-wig wearer’s who suffer from hair loss like to add on the feature because they do not like the straight hairline look.
A full lace-wig and custom lace-wig are the best options for alopecia clients. While lace wigs in general provide a natural looking hairline, they may not allow for a high ponytail or updo style. This drawback can remind many hair loss sufferers that they are wearing a wig rather than styling their own hair.
The full lace wig can be styled in any way the wearer would like. It may be parted anywhere along the head and worn in a high updo. Custom lace wigs are similar to a full lace wig with the exception that your own head measurements are taken and the wig made especially for you. Since most stock lace wigs are made to fit a woman’s head with an average amount of hair, the stock wigs may be to big for someone who has lost a lot of hair. The custom lace wig will provide a snug fit to the exact head measurement.
