4 Different Ways to Wear a Beret

Berets are great as fashionable head accessory, a modest head cover, or for hair loss. They are made with different types of fabrics such as cotton, wool or angora, all which are soft and comfortable to wear. They can also be found in many different colors, patterns and styles for different occasions from casual to dressy.
A beret can be worn as a full head covering with no hair showing. This makes it an ideal head covering for women with hair loss due to chemo or alopecia, and also for those who cover their hair for tzniut – modesty.

Hair Loss Spotlight: Trichotillomania

soft wide headwrap

Soft wide headbands make a great head covering for Trichotillomania when hair loss is on top of the head

Sometimes you may see some with a bald patch or missing part of their eyebrows. The urge to give a “second look” at what may seem an unusual sight is pretty strong.

However, don’t.

You may be seeing someone who is battling Trichotillomania.

What is this disorder which you in all probability never heard of?

The term trichotillomania was coined by a French dermatologist by the name of Francois Henri Hallopeau in 1885. It basically involves a compulsive urge to pull ones hair out. Often one hair at a time.

According to the DSM-IV it is an impulse control disorder and the peak ages of onset is between 9 and thirteen.  It is classified by the Office of Rare Diseases as a rare disease.

There are many suspected contributing factors to the onset of this disorder including stress and/or low self-esteem and a fear of socializing.

The side effects of “Trich” can be serious as the hair loss can cause skin damage and in rare instances the consumed hair can form a matted hairball in the digestive tract and cause severe hair loss, vomiting, and intestinal obstruction and in very rare cases can ultimately be fatal.

If hair loss from Trichotillomania is discovered in younger children it is often self-correcting, however in adults it can be more problematic and re occurring and is considered a difficult disease to treat. However, usually Therapy plays a crucial role in successful treatment of this hair loss condition.

Many people dealing with this condition use various head covers  or wide head bands to “cover up” and try and hide their hair loss.  If however you happen to see someone who looks like they may have this socially awkward problem don’t stare as it does not help the person who is battling to overcome this disorder.
