They can be made of synthetic hair or human hair. They attach either with combs that lock onto the existing hair or with double sided tape if there is no hair. We will ensure to match the hair to your existing color, so it blends right in. Toppers are easy to maintain and are very comfortable to wear even in hot weather.

At Wigs At Home, we can provide a diverse range of wigs for women of all ethnic backgrounds, including Asian and Black women. No matter their hair texture, whether it be curly, coarse, or straight we have wigs that will work for everyone.

Common Causes of Hair Loss

Common causes of hair loss include chemotherapy, alopecia (an autoimmune disease that causes hair loss), trauma or stress, or even aging.

  • Chemotherapy – Chemotherapy drugs are used to attack growing cancer cells, but they often attack other growing cells within your body, which includes your hair roots. This means that the hair on your scalp, eyebrows, and other areas will likely fall out. You should talk to your doctor or oncologist to find out how your chemotherapy drugs will affect your body. Most of the time, hair will grow back when treatment is finished. 
  • Alopecia – Alopecia, often called androgenic alopecia, is an autoimmune disease that causes hair loss in which cells in your immune system attack your hair follicles. Some people with alopecia will experience one episode of hair loss, while others may continue to go through cycles of hair loss and regrowth for their entire lives. 
  • Trauma or Stress – Hair loss from trauma or stress, or telogen effluvium, often occurs after stress, shock, or a traumatic event. The hair loss occurs on the scalp, but unlike alopecia, it’s usually temporary, so the hair will grow back. A person with telogen effluvium will experience hair shedding or thinning for over 6 months. 
  • Aging – Hair loss from aging is very common. As people age, their hair growth usually slows, the hair strands become smaller and has less pigment. This is why people who are older have thin, light-colored hair.
