The black hair and hair care industry is under a multi-billion dollar industry. With women spending thousands of dollars at a time on bundles and wigs, the natural hair care business still thrives! However, have you ever stopped to think of why more women are wearing wigs and bundles these days than their own natural hair!
Some say it's for convenience , some for beauty; others wear it as a way to mask a problem. Many are dealing with different forms of a condition called Alopecia. According to The American Association of Dermatology, alopecia is a form of hair loss in which the hair falls out in round patches. The hair can fall out on the scalp and elsewhere on the body.
Although alopecia is not something that is contagious or physically painfully for most, it can leave some emotionally scarring. For some women, hair is your crown and glory, and carries a certain value in your beauty. Some women have told stories of never showing their hair to their spouses for years. Others have told stories of shedding tears when having to face the mirror.
