What Types of Conditions Qualify As Medical Hair Loss?

Whether it's hair loss to chemotherapy or another medical condition, hair loss can take a large toll on a person's self-image.

Hair thinning is another condition that may be causing you to look into medical hairpieces. There are a number of reasons as to why your hair may be thinning. These can be from medical conditions, hereditary reasons, nutritional deficiencies, hormone imbalances, age, and other reasons. If you’re experiencing hair loss, we recommend that you see your doctor. They may be able to give you more answers as to why your hair is thinning and even prescribe you a hair prosthesis, which will be discussing more about. 

They May Be Covered By Insurance

When you’re looking to get a hairpiece for medical hair loss, you want to invest in a good hairpiece. However, professional-grade hairpieces are not cheap, and many times may seem like an expensive item, especially with other medical finances. The good news is that depending on your condition, insurance may cover the cost, which can save you up to hundreds of dollars. This type of benefit can really make a difference, especially when there are many other financial aspects you’re dealing with. 

In order to receive a medical hairpiece, you usually have to obtain some type of prescription for a medical hair prosthesis. You can sometimes even file a tax deduction when you purchase a wig for medical reasons.

What Type of Hair Is Best?

No matter what type of medical condition your hair loss is coming from, you want to make sure that you’re getting the best type for you. For many people, virgin hair can easily blend in with your current hair or be used in full. Virgin hair means that the hair on the hairpiece you’re buying is 100% pure. It has not undergone any type of chemical processing. These processes include perms, color-treating, dying, bleaching, and permanently heat styling these hair products. Virgin hairpieces also mean that the hair is coming from a single donor. Virgin hair bundles come in different hair textures and styles, which may make it easier for you to find your perfect hair fit. 

Virgin hair is also considered to be the best type of hair because it is in its purest form. So, purchasing a hairpiece made from virgin hair may last longer than other forms of hair. However, due to how pure it is, you will want to be careful on what types of products you’re using and how you’re styling them. Remember, virgin hair is real hair, so treat it how you would treat your natural hair.

At Shari’s Hair Boutique, all of our hairpieces are made with 100% virgin hair. All of our wigs, extensions, frontals, and closures are made with the highest quality hair and can be used for medical hair loss reasons.
