How Headcovers Unlimited Began:

Letter from Carol Galland:

In November 1989, I was diagnosed with Stage II breast cancer. I was only 40 years old. As a side effect of the chemotherapy treatments given to battle my cancer, I experienced total hair loss. Coping was a challenge. As a professional hairstylist, I thought I would be able to use my professional resources to find some attractive head coverings, but at the time, none seemed to be available. I made it through my hair loss with one itchy wig, and one basic surgical cap to cover my head at night. It was a demoralizing experience. I vowed that if I survived, I would change this situation for other cancer patients.

When my cancer went into remission, my daughter and I began our mission to locate those products that I had needed so much during my treatments. We were looking for products that were comfortable, flattering, practical, and affordable. When our search came up empty, we decided that it was time for a solution. Headcovers Unlimited was born.

Through my personal experience with clients, and my own experience with hair loss and cancer, I have been able to "weed out" those items which haven't proven practical. All items completely cover the head and are chosen specifically for women experiencing hair loss.

Although Headcovers began as a service to cancer patients, we soon realized that there were others that were not being served. Our customers began to include those with alopecia, trichotillomania, lupus, burns and hair loss due to a number of medical conditions and treatments. We have and continue to expand our product line based on the needs and requests of our customers. Our original product line included wigs, hats and turbans. Some additions include eyelashes, eyebrows, scarves and cosmetics.

Please shop with confidence, knowing that our products have been developed with your specific needs in mind. We would love to hear from you.
