Female hair loss. It’s a dirty little secret. It’s practically a four-letter word! But why all the shame? This is an incredibly common experience.
It’s believed that 50% of women will experience some form of hair loss. It has so many possible causes too, like alopecia, hormonal issues, or even genetics.
Hair loss can be an emotional loss as well as a physical one. Women experiencing hair loss find solace in covering their thinning hair with alternative hairpieces like toppers.
Hair toppers are the perfect solution to cover hair thinning and hair loss. They clip onto the top of the head. As female hair loss typically occurs at the part, the top of head is the ideal place for coverage.
With toppers, base size matters. It is important to determine the coverage you need or the density/fullness you desire. Smaller toppers, as you can guess, provide less coverage and work best for those looking for a little coverage. Those looking for a little more to a lot more coverage will need a more ample hair topper.
In order to get the best wearing experiencing you need to find a piece that suits your needs. You start by measuring the area of hair loss and then determine what toppers are best for you.
