Understanding Hair Loss: What is Alopecia?

Medically-Related hair loss does not know an age. Children, pre-teens, teens and young adults can be affected by medically-related hair loss as well.

Some medically-related hair loss conditions may not be so temporary. These types of hair loss can be quite devastating for most of you. A custom-made human hair system or our custom design grafting method may be an option for you. A custom-made system is virtually undetectable, durable, comfortable, and made of the finest quality materials.
