WHAT CAUSES HAIRLOSS

Hairloss becomes noticeable when there is a disruption in the natural growth process or the hair follicle itself stops reproducing. Hair loss can begin suddenly and may be caused from an illness, poor diet, a side effect of certain medications, or as a result of a severe trauma including serious burns or even childbirth. Whatever the concerning cause of your hair loss, we are trained and focused on assisting you in your hair loss journey.

ALOPECIA

The treatment for someone with alopecia will depend on their comfort level and the severity of their hair loss. One thing to know with alopecia is that the hair follicles are still in working order; however, it is not known if the hair can regrow due to the nature of alopecia causing the body to attack itself. Wigs By Barbara has the solutions that you are looking for, from partial coverings to full coverings. Our trained staff will work effortlessly to explain your options and find a solution that works for you.

TRICHOTILLOMANIA

Trichotillomania, a Hair Pulling Disorder, can cause feelings of frustration, embarrassment or social alienation because of the compulsive need one feels to pull out their hair, eyebrows, eyelashes or body hair resulting in noticeable hair loss and bald patches.
Wigs By Barbara offers a wide range of hair units that vary in style, color, length, coverage and more. You can choose to match your existing hair or go for a completely new look. Our hair loss experts are familiar with Trichotillomania and are professionally trained to help you make the best decision that fits your lifestyle.

THINNING HAIR

An unfortunate fact is that both men and women can suffer from thinning hair, with it being more common in men due to male pattern baldness. An even tougher reality is that thinning hair has no cure. However, suffering from thinning hair doesn’t mean that you should feel self-conscious in having to opt for a full unit. Wigs By Barbara carries a wide variety of hair loss solutions, we can bring back your confidence.
Our hair pieces can be used for daily wear, or bonded for weekly wear, and all of our services are offered in our private and comfortable salon by our trained hair loss specialists.

LUPUS

Lupus and its medications can cause dramatic and noticeable hair loss or thinning as the follicles are attacked and destroyed, falling out with the slightest tug. The remaining hair is fragile, coarse and easily breakable. Unlike alopecia, the hair may grow back in most cases, but very slowly. Wigs By Barbara will make sure you are completely happy with your new medical unit or partial piece and we make it a beautiful, natural-looking, soft and stylish extension of yourself.

SCALP CONCERNS

Dealing with hair loss or scalp irritation are emotional, and can lead to social concerns and confidence issues. Trichology is the study of the hair and scalp and overlaps both the medical and cosmetic areas that are not normally covered by either a doctor or hairstylist. A Trichologist can help you address many concerns about your hair and scalp treatment. Wigs By Barbara pays attention to every single detail, down to the fit of your custom unit.

BURN VICTIMS

The serious trauma and healing process after burns, may result in scarred tissue on a damaged scalp that cannot regrow hair.
The option to pursue expensive invasive hair transplant surgery is not covered by most insurance companies and can add more stress to your already sensitive scalp.
The best alternative for you may be a well-designed hair unit. The way your wig sits securely on your head heavily influences how comfortable it is for you and your scalp. We have a variety of attachment methods and scalp covers to tailor to your individual needs.
