Having limp and thinning hair can significantly impact your self-confidence. It can make you feel lost, insecure, and different from those around you. For many women, their hair is a confidence safety net and an important part of their self-identity. Having that safety net taken away from you can leave you feeling bereft: many women describe suffering from thinning hair or hair loss like they would a bereavement. This is particularly true if this is a new development, and you have previously had a fuller head of hair.
The good news is that women no longer have to accept their natural hair and make their piece with it. You can now choose extensions and hairpieces to add length and fullness to your hair and help to restore your confidence.

Twenty years ago, this would have been a valid concern, but wig technology has evolved considerably since them. Regardless of whether you choose a synthetic hair wig or a human hair wig, the end result will look incredibly similar to your own natural hair.
Smaller hair toppers, perfect for women who are experiencing thinning hair at the crown, allow you to showcase both your natural hair and your synthetic hair: the key to wearing this kind of hair piece with confidence is to ensure that both your own hair and your topper are the same colour. Otherwise you will have a clear separation between the two and it will look more obvious that the top of your hair isn’t your own.
