If you are someone who is experiencing female hair loss you may have been overwhelmed with the different hair replacement and hair restoration solutions avaliable and be struggling to know which one is for you.

Here at Transitions Hair we offer two main hair loss solutions for women experiencing extensive hair loss and require some form of hair replacement. These are Follea real human hair wigs and topette crown extensions which are also made from top quality real human hair.
The beautiful Follea gripper wigs are the perfect hair loss solution for women who are experiencing widespread hair loss as they provide complete and natural coverage of the entire scalp. Unlike older style wigs, the innovative Gripper wig does not use tapes or glue to adhere to the scalp. Instead, it uses a medical grade silicone that ‘grips’ to the scalp with complete security. It is so secure that even if you are engaged in competitive sport, at the gym, dancing, or out with your friends, you can have complete confidence in knowing this female wig is going to stay on your head.
Often women who are experiencing severe hair loss assume the only way to cover this is with a full head wig. However Topette crown extensions can be used to transform existing hair into thick, full, looking hair. Topettes are perfect if your have severe hair thinning – particularly on the top of the scalp as they clip onto the heap for complete coverage. Topettes are also great if you just want to add extra thickness to fine or thin hair.

You might not even realise that some of these television stars are wearing wigs on screen!
1. Julianna Margulies, The Good Wife
Gone are the days of the curly-haired nurse Carol on ER, with Julianna Margulies hitting the screen as sleek-haired attorney Alicia Florrick on The Good Wife with the help of a straight brown wig.
2. Sherri Shepherd, The View
It’s no secret to her viewers that morning talk show host Sherri Shepherd wears a wig. Shepherd recently created a high fashion wig collection, “Luxhair Now by Sherri Shepherd.” So proud that’s she’s designed a line of wigs, Shepherd finds it hard to keep quiet about it!
3. Ashley Benson, Pretty Little Liars
Originally a blonde when she started the show, Ashley Benson then decided to go brunette. This means in the most recent episodes, which aired this summer, Benson is wearing a blonde wig – a detail that most viewers were not able to pick up on!
4. Gretchen Mol, Boardwalk Empire
In the 1920’s prohibition drama – Boardwalk Empire, Gretchen Mol wears a wig in her role as Gillian Darmody. There’s nothing wrong with her own hair, it’s just sometimes easier to style a wig rather than an actor’s own hair.
5. Tom Mison, Sleepy Hollow
When British actor Tom Mison got the role of Ichabod Crane on Fox’s new hit drama Sleepy Hollow, his hair was too short for a character who was a soldier in the Revolutionary War. So Mison had to wear a wig in order to create the authentic look. “I used to have long hair and I looked ridiculous. This wig is much better than my real hair” Says Mison.
6. Wendy Williams, The Wendy Williams Show
Similarly to Sherri Shepherd, talk show host Wendy Williams had created her own custom wigs line. "I started wearing wigs about 15 years ago," Williams told The Huffington Post. "I have one for the gym, one for around the pool." However she says she wears her natural around the house.
7. Maggie Smith, Downton Abbey
British actress Dame Maggie Smith’s grand upsweep hairstyle which appears on Downton Abbey is a wig. This was to ensure an authentic look for what was customary for women of the time. Her acres of hair is in keeping with the aristocratic station of the Dowager Countess of Grantham.
8. Emilia Clarke, Game of Thrones
Emilia Clarkes character Daenerys on Game of Thrones is seen with an impressive mane of blonde curls. In real life she looks like a different person when sporting her natural dark hair.
9. Megan Boone, The Blacklist
In real life Megan Boone has a very short, chic haircut. However when starring as FBI agent Elizabeth Keen on The Blacklist, Boone wears a shoulder length wig. This gives her a much more ‘down to business’ appearance when alongside a team of tough FBI guys.

Hair loss can affect anyone – young, old or in-between. It can really destroy a person’s self-confidence and stop people from feeling like themselves. This is particularly true for young people, who are already faced with many challenges and are at an age when enhancing self-esteem is vital.
Whatever your age, it can be a devastating experience, especially if you are a parent of a child experiencing hair loss. We know of children as young as 3 years old who suffer from hair loss conditions such as Alopecia (an auto-immune disease that causes the hair to fall out).
Our youngest hair wearers are often our most active and active was what the Follea Gripper Wig was made for. Follea offers Gripper Wigs with natural densities in a variety of sizes specifically designed for children. Better yet, these fantastic wigs have none of the taping or gluing hassles that can come with other wigs. With the Follea Gripper wig for kids, wearing added hair while being a regular kid is easier than ever.
Gripper Kids are made with Follea’s famous high-quality European hair (all double-drawn pony tail hair), gently processed in-house to consistently meet the colour-ring specifications and high-quality control standards.

“I’d rather die than lose my hair”
Like many of us women, Crystal Brown had always been fearful of experiencing hair loss at some point in her life. However when diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer while in her 30’s, she had to face this fear a lot earlier than expected.
Crystal had worn her hair long and straight her entire life, so when faced with the news of cancer treatments and hair loss Crystal felt absolutely terrified at the thought of losing her shoulder length hair. “I was a one month newlywed who was still beaming over my wedding pictures with a beautiful up do and now I was facing news that I would lose my eyebrows, eyelashes, and glorious crown?”
Crystal tried to come to terms with the cancer treatment but like most women, crystal felt she just couldn’t live life with no hair. Crystal had even worked out how she would tell her family that she had decided not to undergo chemotherapy and that she would just enjoy her quality of life with hair and see what happened. “When my teenage daughter got wind of this, she told me bluntly that she would never forgive me if I didn’t do chemotherapy and died. That is all I needed to hear.”
When her hairline started receding and the hair began to fall out in clumps, when Crystal realised that the hair loss was inevitable she drove to a salon, requesting they shave off the rest of the hair that was left.
In situations like this, the big picture is life – hair cannot rob you of that. But here at transition we understand that your hair is a big part of who you are and it can be hard to feel like yourself without it. Our beautiful Follea Gripper wigs are the next generation in wig technology. Unlike older style wigs, the new Gripper wig does not use tapes or glue to adhere to the scalp. Instead, it uses a proprietary medical grade silicone that ‘grips’ to the scalp with complete security. It is so secure that even if you are engaged in competitive sport, at the gym, dancing, or out with your friends, you can have complete confidence in knowing this wig is going to stay on your head.

Hair loss in women is often a topic of taboo that we’d rather not think about, but the truth is there are a growing number of women experiencing hair loss in Australia and worldwide. While also common in those under the age of 50, when women reach menopause many start experiencing hair loss where hair is wanted and hair growth where it is not! Whatever your feelings about menopause, the hair loss that can come with it is a problem that can negatively affects a woman’s self-esteem, confidence and emotional well-being.
Before exploring the role of menopause and aging for hair loss in women, let’s have a quick look at alopecia. There are two types of alopecia and although it can begin any time after puberty; as we see with many of our clients here at Transitions, alopecia is also a common form of hair loss in women over the age of 50.
Two Types of Hair Loss in Women:
The most common type of hair loss in women is female pattern thinning hair, also known as Androgenetic alopecia. This constitutes over 85% of all hair loss in women. It has been linked to an inherited sensitivity to the male sex hormone, androgen. Unlike the type of baldness that develops in men, women may experience diffuse hair thinning over their entire scalp instead. In its early phases, laser hair therapy can be a good treatment option. Our most popular solution is our Topette crown extensions as they create thicker, fuller hair instantly.
Alopecia areata affects close to half a million Australians and is often first sited as a small, round patch of baldness on the scalp. Alopecia areata is considered an autoimmune disease as the body’s immune system attacks its own follicles; other factors such as pregnancy, stress, illness or a person’s genetic makeup can also contribute to the alopecia onset. The progression of alopecia areata is unpredictable, and hair may grow back only to fall out again. Many of our clients with substantial areas of hair loss have found our gripper wigs, made with beautiful European hair to be a fantastic solution.
Menopause and Hair Loss:
The onset of menopause causes a decrease in the production of oestrogen. This results in a shorter hair growth cycle, finer hair, and eventually hair loss in women. Other factors related to hair loss are high levels of stress, illness, hormonal imbalances, harsh hair products, and genetic disposition. Changes in lifestyle such as switching to a healthier diet, getting plenty of B vitamins, enjoying a cup of green tea, losing weight, and trying shampoo that contains hyaluronic acid are all adjustments that may help promote hair growth as well as being good habits for general well-being.
Blood-sugar levels, thyroid tests, and an evaluation for rheumatoid disease may be suggested by your doctor to rule out other possible causes for any hair loss. As for managing the unwanted hair loss, transitions are here to help find the right hair loss solution for you.
Menopause is a time in all women's lives where many things are changing. However, make a change for the better - don’t just accept the hand that life has dealt you; at Transitions, we believe life isn't about waiting for the right circumstances, but rather creating our own. We have helped thousands of women experience the benefits of having great hair again through our hair restoration and hair replacement techniques. Don't wait any longer - call us now for a free, confidential consultation on 1300 427 778.
