Hair Replacement

Nonsurgical hair replacement can be a wonderful option for those who suffer from significant hair loss and would like to regain the appearance of having a full head of hair without surgery.

While natural hairpieces are available, many hair loss consumers have little idea what to look for when purchasing a hairpiece. Unfortunately, the hair loss industry includes some companies that may take advantage of hair loss sufferers. Research conducted by the American Hair Loss Association estimates that more than 70% of nonsurgical hair loss consumers are unhappy with the quality, service, and price provided by their hair replacement salons.

It is important for the hair loss consumer to be aware of several issues before considering purchasing a hairpiece. This section will help give you information you need to make an informed decision when purchasing hair.
