My motivation to start Wave Hair Collection came from my own experience with hair loss.
I began to notice thinning hair in my early twenties. I specifically remember a co-worker commenting on my "bald spot." I still had a lot of hair, so I assumed it was the parting. As the years went on, the hair loss progressed. I brought it up to a few doctors and I was told it was normal and potentially related to a number of different things. I finally saw a dermatologist at the recommendation of my new stylist, and through scalp biopsies received a diagnosis of Lichen Planopilaris, which is a form of scarring alopecia.
I was devastated to learn that there was no chance of regrowth in the areas that scarred over, and the only goal for treatment was to prevent further hair loss. Treatment also included multiple daily oral medications, topical medications, and steroid injections into the scalp. As frustrating as the diagnosis was, I felt a sense of relief having an answer. I knew there had to be a solution and I couldn’t be the only one with severe hair loss. That is how I ventured into the world of wigs and toppers.
