Hair Loss in Woman - Wig Tips

Hair loss in woman is more common than you would think. There are a number of things that can cause this condition, these include stress, poor diet, inflammation in the body and with woman that have just given birth to a child. Also hair loss can occur if a woman has an underlying medical condition like Alopecia, Female Pattern Baldness and with clients undergoing chemotherapy for Cancer. 

In this video we have an inspirational client called Sarah that has had alopecia universalis since she was five years of age. There are a number of questions clients have about wigs and hair pieces.

PRSI Hair Grant - Wigs Dublin

The Irish government has introduced a €500 per year PRSI hair grant. As the Hair Club in Dublin are registered agents we will organise all the paperwork. Minister Humphreys said:

“This new grant is being introduced in recognition of both the physical and psychological impact that sudden hair loss can have on someone’s life.This initiative, provided for in Budget 2022, is about supporting people who suffer from forms of alopecia or cancer.“The grant of up to €500 will assist in the purchase of a wig or hairpiece, for people who suffer the trauma of hair loss" 

Human Hair or Synthetic Wigs ?

Generally we find clients prefer human hair wigs over synthetic. The reason being is real hair wigs look more natural while also having the flexibility in being able to curl and style them. Unfortunately like all good things after Covid, a quality product like a real hair piece is going to cost you considerable more than two years ago. However, keep in mind human hair will last longer than their fibre counterpart.  

In this video presenter Trish Lynch popped in to see us at our hair studio in Dublin. Trish tried on the latest styles from the Mayfair Human Hair Collection and picked the Angelina wig which was absolutely beautiful.

What is Alopecia?

Alopecia Ireland

Alopecia is a disorder triggered by a persons autoimmune system that causes either a woman or a mans hair to come out. 

The hair comes out in patches and clumps in different sizes anywhere around the head. Depending on which type of Alopecia a person has will depend the the severity of the hair loss. Some people lose their hair only in a few spots. On occasion the hair grows back but can falls out again.

There are a range of different types of this condition which include,

- Alopecia areata universalis essentially you loss hair over entire body which includes eyebrows.

- Alopecia areata totalis generally means hair loss just on your crown and head area


- Diffuse alopecia areata is less extreme as most people experience thinning hair other than bald patches.

- Ophiasis alopecia areata is hair loss in a circular band shape on the sides and back of the head.
