One feature of a full lace wig is the realistic appearance it has, allowing the hair to appear as if it’s your own natural hair. With a natural hairline, full lace wigs are also a good choice for people who are suffering from hair loss or hoping to change a hair style without damaging their own hair .

The human hair full lace wigs are wigs made with 100% human hair and hand sewn to a lace base. Lace is the most lightweight and undetectable material for wigs. The lace material gives the appearance of natural skin or scalp when attached to the head and once applied, the wig will have a natural and invisible hairline. A full lace wig is capable of being parted anywhere on the scalp and can also be worn in high ponytails.

Female Pattern Hair Loss

The most common type of hair loss seen in women is androgenetic alopecia, also known as female pattern alopecia or baldness. This is seen as hair thinning predominantly over the top and sides of the head. It affects approximately one-third of all susceptible women, but is most commonly seen after menopause, although it may begin as early as puberty. Normal hair fall is approximately 100-125 hairs per day. Fortunately, these hairs are replaced. True hair loss occurs when lost hairs are not regrown or when the daily hair shed exceeds 125 hairs. Genetically, hair loss can come from either parents side of the family.

There are two different types of hair loss, medically known as anagen effluvium and Telogen effluvium. Anagen effluvium is generally due to internally administered medications, such as chemotherapy agents, that poison the growing hair follicle. Telogen effluvium, is due to an increased number of hair follicles entering the resting stage. The most common causes of Telogen Effluvium are:
Physical stress: surgery, illness, anemia, rapid weight change.
Emotional stress: mental illness, death of a family member.
Thyroid abnormalities.
Medications: High doses of Vitamin A, Blood pressure and Gout medications.
Hormonal causes: pregnancy, birth control pills, menopause.
When the above causes of telogen effluvium are reversed or altered you should see the return of normal hair growth.

Dietary Considerations
Hair loss may also occur due to dieting. Franchised diet programs which are designed or administered under the direction of a physician with prescribed meals, dietary supplements and vitamin ingestion have become popular. Sometimes the client is told that vitamins are a necessary part of the program to prevent hair loss associated with dieting. From a dermatologists’s standpoint, however, the vitamins cannot prevent hair loss associated with rapid, significant weight loss. Furthermore, many of these supplements are high in vitamin A which can magnify the hair loss.

Physical and Emotional Stress

Surgeries, severe illnesses and emotional stress can cause hair loss. The body simply shuts down production of hair during periods of stress since it is not necessary for survival and instead devotes its energies toward repairing vital body structures. In many cases there is a three month delay between the actual event and the onset of hair loss. Furthermore, there may be another three month delay prior to the return of noticeable hair regrowth. This then means that the total hair loss and regrowth cycle can last 6 months or possibly longer when induced by physical or emotional stress. There are some health conditions which may go undetected that can contribute to hair loss. These include anemia or low blood count and thyroid abnormalities. Both of these conditions can be detected by a simple, inexpensive blood test.

Hormonal Considerations
Hormonal changes are a common cause of female hair loss. Many women do not realize that hair loss can occur after pregnancy or following discontinuation of birth control pills. It is important to remember that the hair loss may be delayed by three months following the hormonal change and another three months will be required for new growth to be fully achieved.

Measure your head to find out what size hairpiece you will need. Wrap a seamstress measuring tape around your head, placing the tape at your forehead, just above the eyebrows, and bring the tape around one side of the head and follow your hairline. When the tape has reached just above the ears, tuck the tape behind your ears to follow the hairline. Bring the tape around to the other side of your head, up from behind the ear and meeting the beginning of the tape at your forehead.

According to HeadCovers.com, if your head is 20 inches or smaller, you should wear a child-sized hairpiece. If your head is 21 inches or smaller you will fit into a petite hairpiece. The average wig will fit anyone with a head of 21.5 inches to 22.5 inches. A head larger than 22.5 inches will need a large hairpiece.
