Lindale, TX (PRWEB) February 11, 2009
A new wig collection has arrived at the headshoponline.com. The hope is that the new "Lite as Air" Collection by Revlon will offer woman suffering from hair loss with a more comfortable alternative. Although hair loss shows up quite often in men, it is also quite prevalent in women. According to medical news today, hair loss in women is attributed to genetics, serious illness, long term use of certain medications, malnutrition and vitamin deficiency or "hormonal changes due to menstrual cycles, pregnancy or menopause." Even stress has been attributed to hair loss in women, but the most common cause of hair loss in women comes from an inherited hair disorder known as "Androgenetic Alopecia". This disorder creates female pattern baldness, and according to statistics provided by transitions hair group, it accounts for about 85% of all female hair loss.
Thanks to new technology within the wig market, products such as the "Lite as Air" Collection are helping to make life much easier for females seeking not only a stylish wig, but one that will allow their scalp to 'breathe" and feel weightless for enhanced all day wearability. Wig technology has changed a lot over the years. Gone are the days of uncomfortable fitting wigs that leave a wearer's scalp feeling itchy and hot. Modern advancements in construction allow new products to emerge on the wig market, such as the innovative monofilament top, which contains a clear base material allowing the natural color of the wearer's scalp to shine through. These mono top wigs contain hand-knotted strands, with each strand being sewn in one at a time. This type of cap construction makes it appear that the hair is growing directly from the scalp. One of the biggest advantages of mono top wigs is that individuals can part the hair in any direction.
Traditional wigs do not allow this level of restyling. In the past, monofilament tops were mainly incorporated into human hair wigs, but today over 75% of synthetic wigs also have monofilament tops as well. The "Lite as Air" wig is similar to a mono top wig in that is light and airy, typically weighing less than 2 oz. The special cap construction redefines traditional cap construction incorporating a unique open air manufacturing technique that provides more comfort at a reduced cost. Susan Rupar, owner of The Head Shop Wigs Online is proud to carry to this new wig collection from Revlon. "With hair loss in women becoming more and more of an issue these days, Revlon has stepped up to the challenge of creating a lightweight wig that is more comfortable and stylish for females" Rupar states.
More than likely, innovative wig development among wig manufacturers will continue to surface as the demand for comfort and style among wig wearers augments and technological advances continue to emerge. Female hair loss sufferers have more options for finding a long term solution to their hair loss, one that will provide comfort and style so they can go about their everyday activities without feeling physically or mentally uncomfortable.
