Hair loss due to alopecia: Headwraps to the rescue!
Hair loss due to alopecia or chemotherapy treatments? We're here to help.
After Will Smith's hit at the Oscars, the word "alopecia" has gained a lot of attention. Alopecia areata is an autoimmune disease that causes the body to reject hair, and Jada Pinkett Smith has it. While Chris Rock made a joke about it, Will was not amused. It's understandable because alopecia is a serious condition. For those with alopecia, wearing headwear is not just a fashion statement, but a necessity.
Alopecia areata happens when cells in the immune system attack hair follicles, leading to hair loss. The more follicles that are attacked, the more hair loss occurs. Alopecia can affect anyone and currently has no cure. Some people experience regrowth without any assistance, while others do not. Unfortunately, regrowth does not guarantee that hair loss won't occur again, and some people experience cycles of hair loss and regrowth.
If you suffer from alopecia or are undergoing chemotherapy treatments, Silky Sleek is here to help. Our headwraps, turbans, and headscarves are designed specifically for people dealing with hair loss.
Why Silky Sleek was Created
Did you know that Silky Sleek was created partly because of alopecia? Our co-founder lost her hair suddenly due to alopecia areata last year. As someone with a background in fashion, she realized there were few stylish options available to camouflage her hair loss. However, there are many women who suffer from alopecia or undergo chemotherapy, and they want to feel powerful, beautiful, and, above all, feminine.
"In my search for headwraps, I found that most stores mainly focus on chemo headwear. These typical chemo covers make you look even more sick and far from fashionable or feminine. I discovered how beautiful and powerful you can feel with a good headwrap, but also how time-consuming it is to tie a headscarf every morning. We wanted to do something about that."
Silky Sleek is here for women who need stylish and comfortable headwear options. Women who want to keep feeling strong, beautiful, and empowered while dealing with hair loss. Our first collection of headwraps, turbans, and headscarves features timeless and chic designs that are easy to use and pair with your existing wardrobe. You can even wear them as a co-ord set with our matching Kimono Coats.
For Women Who Want to Make a Fashion Statement
Silky Sleek is also here for women who want to make a fashion statement. Women who want to stand out and showcase their personality. Or women who appreciate the ease and comfort of headwraps in their busy lives. We hope that Silky Sleek contributes to the normalization of wearing headwraps, turbans, and headscarves in the western world.
