Custom Wigs and Extensions’ service update coincides with the latest news from NBC. According to their researchers, 47.6% of Black women now say that they are currently experiencing or have experienced hair loss.
Women of color are particularly vulnerable to profound hair loss from a young age due to the heat, chemicals and tight styles that have long been promoted as ways to manage afro-textured hair. This condition is known as traction alopecia, and in addition to the feelings of embarrassment, shame and self-doubt it leads to, it can also cause permanent damage to the hair follicles.
Additionally, Custom Wigs and Extensions knows well that hair products marketed to African American women typically contain more toxic chemicals than those produced for any other group.
As such, Fenwick is devoted to both stopping the root cause of alopecia in its tracks and reducing her client’s dependence on harmful beauty products. She does so by designing, creating, and installing the perfect custom wigs and extensions.
When she is working on a wig, she focuses on creating a look that is both practical and manageable, and that highlights and accentuates her client’s natural beauty. For those clients who are not suffering as noticeably from the effects of traction alopecia, she also offers traditional, closure and frontal sew-ins, quick weaves and hair growth treatments.
Jenna Fenwick is the founder and CEO of Custom Wigs and Extensions. Since she made her first wig to help her grandmother with her hair loss, she has developed an incredible passion for the craft. Jenna is also the author of ’10 Things Every Woman of Color Should Know About Their Hair Loss’, which is due to be released later this year.
A spokesperson for the salon said, “Custom Wigs and Extensions has quickly become of one of the top salon suites to go to for wigs, extensions, and styling. Jenna loves the feeling she gets when she helps women look and feel their best and sees their self-confidence increase.”
