Just as hair loss can have a negative effect on the self-esteem of adults, so similarly it can also be an incredible knock to a child's self confidence. Often children suffering from hair loss will become introverted and distant, so as to avoid drawing attention to themselves. Designer Wigs for Kids can therefore be an absolute lifesaver.
Due to the small size of their heads, finding wigs for children can sometimes be a trifle tricky. Until the age of ten, the adult wigs available on the market, even those in petite sizes, are generally just too big!
With regards to hair loss as a result of a medical condition, a number of organizations specializing in wigs for children have been formed over the years. Wigs for Kids for example, are a non-profit organization that specialize in wigs for children who have lost their hair as a result of chemotherapy, alopecia, burns and other medical conditions.
The hair used in the wigs is donated to the organization, and is thus 100% human. All of the wigs created are of an especially petite size, and thus fit perfectly onto small children's heads. In addition, other organizations such as Clowns, Locks of Love, Hip Hats and the Men's Hair Club for Kids are also dedicated to providing quality wigs to children in need.
From the age of ten onwards, most children are able to fit into smaller sized adult wigs. It may therefore be a good idea to contact the Cancer Association and ask for a list of wig suppliers in your local area, so as to arrange a proper fitting session with an expert wig merchant.
Locks of Love is a non-profit organization that provides hairpieces for financially disadvantaged children who have lost their hair due to any kind of medical condition.
