A chronic neutrophilic inflammation resulting in scarring hair loss, causing tufted hair folliculitis. Multiple hair shafts emerge from a single hair follicle resulting in a ‘dolls hair’ appearance. This can cause a mild itch, discomfort or pain. At Amiwigs we aim to make the hairpiece as lightweight and comfortable as possible, a silk lining could be an option to prevent any further discomfort for the wearer with this condition.
Anagen Hair Loss (Alopecia)
Hair shedding that arises during the growth stage of the hair cycle. This is due to an acute injury to the hair follicles caused by an origin from within e.g medicine.
Telogen Hair Loss (Alopecia)
Temporary hair loss due to the excessive shedding of hair in the resting stage after some shock to the system. New hair continues to grow, pushing out the resting hairs increasing hair fall is noticeable 2-4 months after the triggering event.
A rare inflammatory condition that results in patchy progressive permanent hair loss. Commonly develops in association with lichen planus affecting the skin. Usually slowly progressive, common sites are the sides, front and lower back of the scalp. Here at Amiwigs we specialise in creating a bespoke hair piece/wig for your individual needs, catering for a range of hair loss distribution the client may be experiencing.
An inflammatory destruction of the hair follicle which is typically painful for the patient. At Amiwigs we create a bespoke hair piece or wig to fit the specific individual’s head shape and measurements, therefore minimising any discomfort. We use lightweight materials and discuss with the client as to what form of attachment works best for them.
