Hair Loss and Children

Hair loss for children can be upsetting and socially difficult. Children may experience hair loss due to medical treatments, some form of Alopecia, or Trichotillomania. Children often have fewer problems than adults do when dealing with hair loss, however, even though children seem to be more resilient, they will be confronted with questions and curiosity from their friends and classmates.

The National Alopecia Areata Foundation provides an excellent video, sharing the experience of children with hair loss, as well as other valuable resources for parents. Some studies suggest that children be allowed and encouraged to make their own decisions regarding their hair loss. Some children will be comfortable just being natural and not doing anything, others will choose to cover up with a hat, scarf or some other type of head covering. Should the child make an inquiry about other options such as wearing a wig, there are ready-made choices available that are constructed especially for children, as well as the option of creating a full custom-made wig.

Children with Hairloss  is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization that provides human hair replacements at no cost to children and young adults facing medically-related hair loss. When a child’s hair is lost due to Cancer treatments, Alopecia, Trichotillomania, burns, etc., the painful effects are far deeper than just cosmetic. Each year, the number of children requesting our hair replacements increases and with your support, we can continue to increase the number of children we are able to help in the future!
