I'm Interested in a Wig: What Are My Options?

Women lose hair for a variety of reasons. Some of these are permanent in nature (e.g. male pattern baldness) and therefore require a permanent solution; while others are temporary. Experiencing temporary hair loss does not mean you have to wait months for your natural hair to grow back to enjoy a full head of hair. High-quality wigs are an excellent (and fun) option for those who are seeking a hair loss solution for either sudden or temporary hair loss. This is your guide to everything you need to know about wigs.

Most Common Causes of Temporary Hair Loss

Temporary hair loss can occur for many reasons and vary in the length of duration. In most cases, normal hair growth resumes when the situation at hand is resolved. For instance, if you are undergoing chemotherapy, normal hair growth typically resumes once treatment is completed. These are the most common causes of temporary hair loss:

  • Radiation therapy
  • Chemotherapy
  • Alopecia
  • Temporary hair loss during pregnancy (due to hormonal changes)
  • Hypothyroidism - Condition in which the thyroid gland does not produce enough thyroid hormone.
  • High fever
  • General anesthesia
  • Physical trauma
  • Excessively high levels of stress

What are the Benefits of Wigs?

Wig wearers enjoy a myriad of benefits including:


Wigs are among the most inexpensive hair loss solutions available.

Easily Change Styles

Wigs allow you to easily change your look in a matter of seconds. Have multiple wigs on hand. For instance, you can choose a wig that matches your natural hair and have one that gives you a whole new look!

Protect Your Natural Hair

Wigs are a great option for protecting your natural hair as it grows back in. It is protected from environmental elements such as UV rays and cold weather, both of which can cause dry, brittle hair.


Wigs are low-maintenance, meaning that you do not have to worry about visiting a salon for routine care every few weeks.
