For various reasons, I was looking up alopecia stuff - actually, I was looking to see if there are any resources for trans folk with the condition. As a result, I find myself looking at the NAAF - National Alopeica Areata Foundation. Looking up various treatments, I found this paragraph:
For those with completely bare heads, there are suction caps to which any wig can be attached and there are entire suction cap wig units. These state of the art wigs, which make use of a silicon base to create a secure vacuum-fit, are comfortable and easily removed by the wearer. Proper fit of a vacuum wig requires that any existing scalp hair be shaved. These wigs are generally more expensive than other types of wigs.
I can't help but be amused. The implicit onomatopoeia of the situation is deafening.
