The facts about Alopecia Areata
Alopecia can range in severity, from mild thinning of the hair, the loss of small patches of hair to total, permanent hair loss.
There are many kinds of alopecia, including androgenetic alopecia, traction alopecia, however when people speak of Alopecia, they are most commonly referring to Alopecia Areata. This form of Alopecia is an autoimmune disorder that attacks the hair follicles causing baldness. This baldness may be temporary, but it may also be permanent. Most women first notice symptoms of Alopecia Areata through small patches of baldness the size of a coin on their scalp. These patches can become larger and join together, potentially causing complete hair loss over your head (Alopecia Totalis) and even your whole body (Alopecia Universalis).
There are some theories about the cause of Alopecia Areata, yet none of them are absolutely conclusive. What we do know is there is a genetic predisposition to Alopecia Areata, with children of parents who have experienced Alopecia more likely to experience the disorder than those with no hereditary history. Even if there is no family history of Alopecia Areata this doesn’t mean that you can’t be affected by the condition. Many women are simply more prone to it than others for no apparent reason. The immune response could be triggered by anything from a viral or bacterial infection, stress, relationship breakdown, a vaccination, exposure to a foreign substance or trauma to the skin. However, in many cases there does not seem to be any one factor to have caused it. The most current theory today is that it is not usually one factor that causes the Alopecia, but several that occur at the same time.
The good news is that Transitions Hair has years of experience in helping women to successfully overcome Alopecia Areata. Call us today for a free hair consultation to find out what your options are. Ph: 1300 427 778

Hi Transitions, It's been a while since we last saw you and I just wanted to keep you up to date with Lucy's progress. Basically you saved her! The Follea wig you fitted her with is absolutely amazing, completely natural looking and really beautiful. She went from being depressed and sad to her old lively self again, enjoying bike riding, dancing and sleep overs.
"What I've really enjoyed about working with Transitions is they're really friendly. You get to try on the wigs and see what it will look like. With my other ones, you had to pick out a colour and that's it; you wait for that to come. "
"I can't believe I'm doing this, but it's important. I have gradually been losing my hair since my late teens and it has knocked my confidence immensely. I always look at women with beautiful thick hair and think 'why the hell couldn't I have hair like that?' I used to, it used to be so long and thick but most of it has fallen out now. Now I barely have any. I know that there are a lot of women out there suffering from the same issue (1 in 3 in fact) and I want you to know that there is help available for you if you want it. I have just spent the last few hours with the most amazing woman who has put this solution together for me and I feel like a new person. I can't wait to start learning styling tricks again, I'm so excited!"
"As a woman experiencing hair loss I felt very much alone in my experience and really didn't want to admit to myself just how much this was impacting my everyday life. When I started avoiding social situations and worrying about giving work presentations because of the way I looked I knew that I had to do something. My consultation with Andrew at Transitions Hair opened up a whole new world for me. Andrew really understood what I was going through and was so enthusiastic to help me find the best way to get me looking and feeling great again. Transitions were genuinely interested in providing me with an affordable, personalised solution that would achieve the best, most natural look for me. I am so happy with the way my hair looks now that I can honestly say it actually looks better than before I suffered my hair loss. The transformation this has had in my confidence and self-esteem makes me wonder why I waited so long. If you've experienced hair loss and are ready to do something about it then I highly recommend a visit to Transitions Hair first."

I bought my toppette in Sydney about two months ago, and it has been life changing. Sure, it takes some time getting used to psychologically, but I am confident that I will not go back to relying on my bio hair now - it was just too stressful.

"I now wear a large topette of human European hair. It feels beautiful to run my fingers through! My hairdresser says it has been lovely hair to cut and style. She doesn’t have to manipulate its texture or direction. The colour looks very natural and I am totally confident that the fact that it does not grow from my scalp is undetectable among the public and my large workplace.
I hardly comb it which sounds odd but due to the quality it does not need a lot of work on it.
I know it is superior as I have worn other topettes of asian or indian hair origin for 10 years. I feel more psychologically and physically connected to this piece as it is closer to my European genes. I feel amazing in it – the hair I have always wanted!"

“Very much I recommend the crown extension. It certainly gives you I guess a bit of that glam feel, especially if you're going to a big event or you're wanting to get dressed up for something. You don't have to do too much to your own hair to tease it and destroy it to get it looking full.”
