At Don Bella hair, we encourage everyone battling alopecia to be strong and keep pushing on. We are here to support anyone who needs us through tips, information, and solutions.
I hope this blog post helps you to feel more confident about your alopecia journey, and want to share it with everyone who needs the support! We are all beautiful people - no matter what our hair looks like.
How Do I Stand Strong Even When Battling Alopecia?
Keep up with your appearance by grooming what remains on your head or face, shaving what needs to be shaved, styling what's left of your hair.
Quite often, alopecia comes in the form of bald patches. This leaves some hairless spots, but you might have hair in others. What does this mean?
#1: Never Neglect The Hair Left
Keeping your hair clean and well-conditioned is a good idea for those who have partial loss. This will help the roots of any remaining healthy hairs to grow stronger. Thicker root hairs can give you more regrowth in patches where there's no hair at all!
Your scalp needs love too!! You don't want flaky or scaly-looking patches.
Several natural and eco-friendly hair products will leave your hair looking smooth, shiny, and tangle-free. Don't forget to get yourself a bonnet to keep the products intact even at night.
At Don Bella Hair, we have silky bonnets that give you the comfort you want at night.
If you shave, be sure to groom the area afterward not to look unkempt or scruffy! Shaving is a good way of keeping your scalp looking clean and healthy.
After shaving, you can get yourself a Remy 100% human hair wig from Don Bella Hair to give you that natural look.
Apart from shaving, you can style what's left of your hair. It doesn't have to be a full-on style, but even just throwing on plaits will make you look more put together.
When styling, it's important to use products that are sulfate and paraben-free. Hair products containing sulfate and paraben can often contain harsh chemicals which strip the natural oils from our scalp, causing dryness and irritation.
You can even do your own hair treatments to condition the roots of any remaining healthy hairs.
#2: Find a Wig That That Looks Natural
When getting through Alopecia, wigs and extensions were a lifesaver for me. They helped boost my confidence and protected my scalp from harsh environmental conditions, giving me room for a healthy scalp.
I'm going to share a few tips on how you can find a wig that looks natural on you when living with alopecia.
Tip 1: Always Opt For Lace Frontals
Lace frontal wigs give closure wigs a run for their money. They give you the same natural look as closure wigs, but without any of the hassles that come with them.
Lace frontals are made from Swiss lace virtually indistinguishable from human hair, and don't tangle easily even after months of use. It can be parted anywhere like natural hair, and the knots are virtually undetectable.
Lace wigs can be styled in any way you like, including heat styling with your favorite flat iron or curling iron because they are made of human hair just like your own! You won't have to worry about it tangling or matting because of heat.
They also come with adjustable straps and combs so it won't fall off even during the most rigorous activities like dancing, jogging, or playing sports! You can do anything you want to without worrying about your wig falling off. This is also the best option for physically active alopecia patients.
Tip 2: Don't Shy Away From Trying Different Designs
There are different types of wigs and hairpieces. They can be expensive, but they are worth it to feel good about yourself again!
At Don Bella Hair, we have a variety of wigs from straight, curly to wavy, which can bring out your different personalities and mood to match certain occasions.
Wigs are not just for alopecia patients. They have a wide range of uses. If you have cancer or any other medical condition that causes hair loss, wigs can be used to boost your self-esteem and help others see beyond the disease!
It is important to invest in high-quality products because they will lift your self-esteem and make you feel good again.
At Don Bella Hair, we take pride in making our products look as real as possible so that they can give the person wearing them a great sense of confidence!
