Be Present - Advice from Women Experiencing Hair Loss

Be Present - Advice from Women Experiencing Hair Loss

Hair loss isn’t a topic women like to discuss, but it still happens. In fact, 40% of all hair loss sufferers are women.
Despite that statistic, it can be easy to feel alone in the struggle. If you are beginning to experience hair loss, you may be feeling a range of emotions from anxiety to grief. These are all normal reactions! Even so, it’s important to realize you are not alone.
All this month, we are encouraging our customers to Be Present in everything they do. Being present means letting go of what was and leaving tomorrow to tomorrow. Part of being present is breaking the stigma that hair loss may be causing you today.
We reached out to some of our fabulous customers and asked them to share their own experiences with female hair loss. Breaking the silence is just one step towards breaking the stigma, but these women’s wealth of wisdom can also help you become more present in your everyday life.
Tav is a customer experiencing hair loss. She found adjusting to life with less hair had a learning curve. “My head got cold in the winter without hair!” she said. “It was a revelation at the time.” It was more than just a temperature issue though. “I had to dig deeper to find my worth without my hair,” she admitted. It’s understandable; in our society, so much value is placed on women’s physical looks, hair included.
Tav credits wigs and a sense of humor with helping her face her hair loss. Wigs have a few upsides, after all.  “Now you get to play with any type of hair you want - play with styles and color,” she explains. “Own it and don't feel bad about wearing wigs. You are ultimately doing this for yourself.”

Debbie is another wig-wearer. Her hair loss began when she was only a young teen. The condition left her feeling limited in her own life. “[Back then], I used to wear falls when I had a bit to clip in to. [Because of that], there was no swimming, no camping, no sleepovers,” Debbie said. 

When the hair loss progressed, Debbie turned to wigs instead. “I just started wearing wigs from a couple of years ago. This has helped me tremendously to feel confident and just be brave.” 


Emily is another wig-wearer who experienced hair loss at a young age. She originally balked at her doctor’s suggestion of wearing a wig. “I was horrified,” she admits. At the time, she didn’t understand all the wearable hair options out there and opted to keep biological hair as-is for a time. “I wish I could go back and erase that time!”
She soon found a community of women to support her. “I can tell you I was able to pull myself out of feeling sorry for myself when I found more women like me,” Emily said.
Emily is glad she gave hairpieces a chance. “There isn’t anything I haven’t done in a wig or top piece. I just live life to the fullest and I do whatever I want in life. I don’t let my hair stop me and I’m just happier than I have ever been.”

If you’re in the beginning stages of hair loss, remember you are not alone. You have options and you will feel like yourself once again. You may even find you like life better in a wig!
