myHAIR, LLC makes Cranial Hair Prosthesis for those with a desire for highly realistic and beautifully hand crafted wigs. For medical patients or those with hair loss issues, we can help restore your confidence with a wig that blends naturally with your scalp and hairline. Our scalp prosthesis materials are expertly matched to your skin tone and created with comfort in mind. Using innovative methods and technology, our wigs are virtually invisible and completely effortless once applied. Unlike traditional wigs made with uncomfortable and irritating mesh materials, you’ll forget you’re even wearing it.
A cranial hair prosthesis is a hair system designed specifically for those suffering from hair loss due to medical conditions or treatments, such as alopecia areata, alopecia totalis, trichotillomania, or chemotherapy. Unlike an off-the-shelf wig, each prosthesis is custom made to fit. Precise head measurements are taken and real human hair is selected from a large array of colors and textures. As professionally trained hair loss specialists, our team is educated to ensure that the hair system selected is the right shape, style, appropriate hair density, and color for a more natural appearance.
Our hair replacement options include full systems, partials, hair pieces for men, women and children, in addition to attachment methods for all systems. We have several choices of base material and adhesive methods, to fit your lifestyle.
A Cranial Hair Prosthesis is the latest development in hair replacement units. It is a medical term used to describe a hair system designed specifically for those suffering from long term or permanent hair loss. A custom-made wig specifically designed for individuals who have lost their hair as a result of medical conditions or treatments, such as alopecia areata, alopecia totalis, trichotillomania, chemotherapy, or any other clinical disease or treatment resulting in hair loss.
Cranial hair prosthesis can be full or partial and must be clearly identified as a full or partial cranial prosthesis on an invoice or a prescription from a physician in order to claim insurance benefits. The terminology is also used when submitting a medical insurance claim or when claiming additional medical expenses for tax deduction purposes. Over 30 million women today deal with hair loss and are in need of a medical cranial hair prosthesis.
Each hair prosthetic is custom made to fit your head only. They differ in quality, performance, and service. Hair prosthetics are made of specialized materials. They are designed to meet the specific needs of someone suffering from hair loss. The hair systems are form-fitted to become part of you and designed to be styled as if it were your own hair. They are made to look and feel natural – no one will know it is a wig. Each hair system is made with 100% Virgin Human Hair and can be parted anywhere throughout the unit to give you that natural scalp appearance.
Medical Conditions & Solutions

Commercially insured individuals diagnosed with a medical condition resulting in hair loss, may qualify to receive a cranial hair prosthesis (medical wig) with little to no out of pocket costs. Coverage and eligibility vary among insurance providers, therefore myHAIR recommends the following initial steps:
- Call us! After answering a few questions about your medical condition (hair loss) and medical coverage, we will contact your insurance provider to verify eligibility and coverage amount.
- Obtain a prescription from the treating physician stating “Prescribed Cranial Hair Prosthesis required for medical reasons”. The prescription must also include the specific diagnosis and diagnosis code.
- Request a separate detailed letter from the treating physician explaining the extent of the hair loss and the mental distress experienced due to the medical condition, treatment, and effects on daily life.
- Photograph your hair – ensure the areas of hair loss are highly visible. The photos will show that the claim is not for cosmetic purposes.
