There are over 40 mil­lion women who expe­ri­ence some type of hair loss.  When it comes to women with med­ically related hair loss, the hair loss spe­cial­ists with Recover With Con­fi­dence rec­og­nize the impor­tance of qual­ity ser­vice and a per­fect hair product.

Our wigs are designed for a nat­ural look and hand-made to give every woman unmatched qual­ity and com­fort.
These tips from med­ical hair loss spe­cial­ists ensure a proper fit and a con­fi­dent hair replace­ment experience:

  • Look for a hair loss spe­cial­ist with licensed cos­me­tol­o­gists who offer free consultations.
  • Plan ahead. Hair loss occurs usu­ally one to three weeks fol­low­ing your first treat­ment. Ide­ally, you should have your con­sul­ta­tion while you still have hair. This allows your hair­styl­ist to match your hair color shade and style. If this is not pos­si­ble, then plan to bring a pho­to­graph of you with your hair.
  • Your con­sul­ta­tion should include dis­cus­sions regard­ing your treat­ments, recov­ery, expec­ta­tions, bud­get and lifestyle. This will allow her to sug­gest syn­thetic, human hair or Euro­pean hair. All are great options, but you should under­stand the fea­tures of each one. She will also mea­sure your head to ensure a proper fit. Your wig should fit securely and not move around on your head, nor should it be uncom­fort­ably tight. Your styl­ist will be able to cus­tomize the fit per­fectly for you.
  • There is a dif­fer­ence between fash­ion wigs and med­ical wigs. Select­ing a wig that is hand tied (hair is knot­ted into the base by hand) instead of machine made (hair is sewn in, this is rec­og­niz­able by rows of wefts), uses soft mate­ri­als and have non slip mate­r­ial placed on the base which will give you the ulti­mate com­fort, secu­rity and will look com­pletely natural.
  • Keep in mind that most insur­ance com­pa­nies do offer a ben­e­fit for wigs, but you must fol­low their strict guide­lines. Wigs are con­sid­ered a cra­nial pros­the­sis under the Durable Med­ical Equip­ment cat­e­gory. Your hair loss spe­cial­ist should be able to either file for you or offer assis­tance with filing.
  • When work­ing with a hair loss spe­cial­ist, wig pur­chases may include free hair color, cut and style — so, make sure you ask.
  • Many busi­nesses will help you at lit­tle or no charge to pro­fes­sion­ally take care of your wig after pur­chase, includ­ing clean­ing and restyling. To ensure the qual­ity, look and longevity of your wig, ask about the care of the wig and make sure you fol­low their instructions.
  • Plan to pur­chase a sleep cap and some beau­ti­ful scarves and tur­bans for when you don’t or can­not wear your wig.
  • While most women want to keep their same hair color and style, some like to exper­i­ment with a new look. Dis­cuss this dur­ing your con­sul­ta­tion where you will have pro­fes­sional help select­ing a hair color shade and style that will work with your face struc­ture and your skin tone. Keep in mind that some­times skin tone can tem­porar­ily change some­what dur­ing chemother­apy, your hair loss spe­cial­ist will know this and will have the abil­ity to guide you.
  • When your hair grows back, con­sider donat­ing your wig. Many hair loss spe­cial­ists take dona­tions from their clients.
