Hair Loss... Now What?

It's common for many questions to arise when you find out you will or may lose your hair. When will I start to lose my hair? Should I purchase a wig? When? Human or Synthetic? What will it cost? Are they comfortable and easy to care for? Where do I start?

J. Crager Alternatives assists you in finding the right answers to these questions. Working with patients in Chicago for over 20 years, we specialize in helping women and men who are experiencing hair loss as a result of chemotherapy, alopecia, trichotillomania, thyroid problems or other medical disorders or treatments

As you can see, we do not sell wigs online. We believe this is a private and very personal process. At your first consultation we will cover all aspects of selecting the best wig for YOU - one that is comfortable and has a natural look, because it will be custom fitted, shaped and styled for your needs

Contact us for help in choosing what is best for your situation and lifestyle. If you are hospitalized but able to receive visitors, we can come to you - we make hospital calls throughout Chicago and the Chicago suburbs on an as-needed basis.

Above all, we are a transition partner. From diagnosis throughout treatments and until after your hair returns, we are available throughout this journey.


As of November 6, 2015, J.Crager Alternatives has moved into his new salon at 3950 N. Avondale Ave., Chicago, IL, with an entirely new look, a completely updated salon and a quality staff to serve your hair needs. For more information, call 773-248-6844
