In our fourth and final blogpost about the different types of alopecia and hair loss, for alopecia awareness month, will be discussing what anagen and telogen effluvium  alopecia is.

According to Alopecia Online, anagen effluvium is hair loss generally caused by chemicals such as those that are used to treat cancer. Anagen effluvium starts by patchy hair loss but then can progress to total hair loss. However, with anagen effluvium, hair can grow back as soon as you stop having these chemicals. The hair usually grows back after around six months after it has been loss.

Telogen effluvium is a form of hair loss where more than normal hair amount, falls out. Unlike many other forms of hair loss, the growth of the hair usually grows back and recovers. Telogen effluvium is normally temporary. However, telogen effluvium requires no medication to overcome and usually the hair will start to grow back, once the trigger has been removed.

Depending on where you have hair loss caused by anagen effluvium or telogen effluvium, Glorylox has the hair piece for you.

One way is by using a half wig piece for the top of your head. A half wig clips around the surrounding areas of your hair and adds volume to where there may be thinning at the crown of your head. A half wig is an alternative option to wearing a wig and only focuses on the top of your head.

Another way is by using a hair piece called a topper. A topper is very similar to a crown piece in which it covers the top of your scalp. The topper is clipped around the crown of your head and has the same middle parting in the middle of your scalp. The topper is not as big as the crown piece, but still acts as the same piece.
