H-W-E Full Custom Cranial Prosthesis

*Partial custom units and hair pieces available for thinning or bald coverage

A cranial prosthesis (hair prosthesis) is a custom-made natural looking hair piece made of human hair woven into a prosthetic scalp that is especially created to fit the shape of a client’s scalp. It is specifically designed for clients who have lost their hair as a result of possible medical conditions or treatments.

There are several medical conditions or treatments that would cause a client to need a cranial prosthesis. Alopecia areata is a health condition in which hair is lost from some or all areas of the body, but most often from the scalp. Alopecia totalis is the loss of all hair, and Trichotillomania, which is classified as an impulse control disorder, is the urge for one to pull out ones own hair. Chemotherapy is widely known to cause hair loss, but there are other clinical treatments and diseases with the same tragic results.
