Many people with Alopecia Areata choose to wear wigs or other hairpieces. These can help them feel a sense of control over their appearance and their condition, and feel more confident when in public.
There are many different types of wigs and hair pieces available and buying a wig for the first time can be challenging. It can also be a major financial investment, so to minimize the risk of getting something you’re not happy with, AAAF created a guide which may help you decide what is right for you. The Wigs Document also includes information about what financial assistance options may be available to you.
Our Grant A Wig for Kids is also available to assist in the cost of purchasing a wig for children under the age of 18.
AAAF have created a series of videos all about wigs, including frequently asked questions, how to choose the right wig for your needs, how to care for your wig, styling and many more. You can view the full series on our YouTube channel.
