If you are suffering hair loss due to a medical condition like Alopecia or Trichotillomania or as a side effect of chemotherapy or radiation therapy and you have a full medical card, you should qualify for a wig grant through the Health Service Executive (HSE).
There is no standard application form for this type of allowance but if you contact us, we can help you with the application process. Allowances vary across the country from €440 – €700.
Our team at HairWeavon are here to help you through your hair loss journey. So, you can focus on feeling better. We are a registered HSE wig provider and can help with finding the perfect hair replacement for you, as well as all aspects of applying for the HSE wig grant.
All you will need to do is get a note from your doctor or health care professional and have a valid medical card.
We have created a simple online form for you to upload your doctors note. We then take care of the rest.
Alternatively, you can book a free consultation at our wig shop in Dublin, where our friendly staff will go through the application with you and help you choose the prefect wig or hair piece for you. There are 100s of styles to choose from. We can find a wig for you similar to your real hair or help you find a new style.
Please allow 4 weeks for your application to be processed and once the wig allowance is approved, you can collect your wig or we will send you an online coupon to shop for your wig online at hairweavon.com.
If you do not have a medical card yet, do not worry, we will accept payment for the wig or hair piece and then you can receive a refund once your application is approved.
If you have any questions or require additional information, please feel free to contact us.
