There are many causes for hair loss in women. The most common reason for hair loss is hereditary; often you have women in your family who have had hair loss. There are other reasons that are non-hereditary that cause ‘telogen effluvium” AKA temporary hair loss. This telogen effluvium is a form of hair loss that usually happens when stress, diet, hormonal imbalance, or a traumatic event causes hair follicles to remain in a resting state, increasing shedding and temporarily thinning hair. It usually occurs on the top of the scalp. Telogen effluvium is different from the permanent hair loss disorder called alopecia areata which is often considered to be related to auto-immune issues. There are treatments for other health issues that cause hair loss- such as chemotherapy and/or radiation – used to treat various types of cancer. And often women lose hair during one or both treatments.
During any of these situations, women have to deal with the issue of their appearance and how they will deal with it. Some are happy to be bald, others will use scarves and hats to protect their bare scalp and others will turn to wigs. Wigs are often chosen because the regrowth of hair can take longer, depending on how many rounds of chemo and/or radiation they need to have.
There is another reason that a woman will want to wear a wig- religious commitments. Women who are Orthodox Jews use scarves, hats and/or wigs to cover their hair whenever they leave home. In this religious culture, women only show their natural hair to their husband and their female family members once they are married. For some, wigs are the easiest way to go about their day.
When I heard about a new vendor for wigs, I was very interested to see the line because it’s a very high-quality line. I am sharing the information about this new vendor, MadeTrue Hair, because it has a uniquely different type of business model.
MadeTrue Hair Revolutionizes the Wig Business!
Beauty Innovator Reinvents Both Custom Wig and Business Models with
Dedication and Compassion
MadeTrue Hair is taking the age-old wig business and giving it a much-needed makeover. Launched this month, the beauty company’s objective is to change the way wigs are made and purchased. MadeTrue Hair is making a difference in the beauty, health and medical fields and is emerging as the solution-driven option in prestige, affordable, custom-made human hair wigs.
“When I was presented with the opportunity to be a founder of MadeTrue Hair, I was immediately inspired. This business endeavor is more than business. It gives us the opportunity to make an impact on people we love and care about. And, personally, that is what touches my heart the most. It is about the times when you may feel down or frustrated, and you look at yourself to see the true you. Your look lifts you up, it captures your essence, it changes your perspective, it lightens your spirit and you feel in control, less impacted by your hair loss,” said Phyllis Nomura, Co-Founder, MadeTrue Hair and Chief Financial Officer, Kosmos Management.

Used to invoke power and royalty, wigs have been worn throughout the centuries: think Egyptian Queen Cleopatra, Queen Elizabeth I, and Marie Antoinette. Not everyone was blessed with a great head of hair like U.S. President George Washington who powdered and curled his own hair. However, U.S. Presidents John Adams and James Monroe opted for the same look by wearing wigs. Barristers and judges wore wigs in their official capacities. In modern times, celebrities Raquel Welch, Cher, Dolly Parton, Sia, Katy Perry, and Gigi Hadid have all been known to change their look with a wig. Men and women have worn wigs for religious purposes, and today, more than ever, survivors of a range of medical issues turn to wigs to inspire personal dignity, confidence and a feeling of empowerment.
“The need has grown stronger to bring back the vanishing art of the wig maker,” said beauty brand incubator Barry Shaich, Co-Founder, MadeTrue Hair. “When I looked at it, I said this industry hasn’t changed for hundreds of years. Wigs have always been a pre-styled, ready-to-wear product. For high fashion, MadeTrue wants to be a unique and authentic product.” Shaich continued, “When facing hair loss due to medical issues, people are literally losing parts of themselves. When things are being taken away, MadeTrue wants to put it back in a way that is unique and powerful just like you.”
