Covering hairstyles for severe hair loss

When hair loss becomes too severe and the lack of hair density prevents the scalp from being covered, various hair complements are available for those who do not want to show their bare head:

  • Wigs, whether natural or synthetic
  • Headbands, turbans, hats and scarves made of fabric, which can replace or be used alternately with wigs;
  • Fake bangs, to be slipped under a turban, a scarf to tie or a bonnet.
