Most people take great pride of their hair and even a lot of women consider this body part as their crowning glory. Some of them even treat their hair as an investment by spending a lot of money just to make sure that it looks perfect. Many people even say that having good hair helps increase their self-esteem because of the compliments that they often receive from others.
But what about those people who suffered from extreme hair loss due to an autoimmune disease known to many as Alopecia? Can you imagine the feeling of waking up everyday with either very little or no hair at all? It must be devastating for them to go through these kind of health issue. We wouldn’t wish these to happen to anyone because it causes people to feel depressed which is not a good thing. A lot of people who suffer from this disease are able to find ways to conceal their hair loss by wearing human hair wigs Sydney because they often fear that other people may judge them for their personal appearance which is a harsh reality of our society nowadays.
A lot of kids and adults with Alopecia often suffer in silence from bullying and discrimination causing them to feel bad about themselves.The good thing is that they can always pay a visit to a reputable wig shop that sells natural looking hairs and caters for specific clients like them. They can choose any type of wig that would suit them, they can also change hairstyles and color depending on their mood. A small thing may mean a whole lot to other people.
Alopecia just like any other medical condition is curable and manageable even though it takes a lot of time before results are visible. But in order to see some changes in the patient’s condition, it is important that he/she consults a medical professional, preferably a dermatologist to assess the current condition of the scalp. One of the most common and effective form of treatment is through the use of corticosteroids which can either be injected in the patients scalp on a monthly basis or through topical ointments. Though patients are not advised to use this kind of treatment for a long time because of its known side effects such as bloating, swelling, high blood pressure and more.
For milder cases of Alopecia, patients are just advised to apply Minoxidil which is readily available at local drugstores provided that the patient is able to present a prescription. The scalp must also be massaged even for just a few minutes in a days to increase blood flow and stimulate hair growth within the next few weeks.
