Non-Surgical Hair Replacement
Wearing a hair replacement system can solve your hair loss problems overnight. But knowing what to buy is vital to a natural appearance.
wow, what a difference this makes!
Everyone thinks they can pick out the guy wearing a hairpiece. This is because in the past the materials used were heavy and the construction methods were somewhat crude. Hence the long list of popular slang terms including toupée, wig and rug.But times and the hair replacement industry have changed. These days, due to a better understanding about how the hair grows, plus advanced construction materials, what used to be called a "hairpiece" is now referred to as a "haie system".What puts the "system" in hair replacement systems?There are two very different types of hair systems available; Stock and Custom. The names should indicate the biggest difference between them.
Stock Hair Systems — These are mass produced according to the most common color graduations and hair loss sizes. Because they are sold "as is" and off-the-shelf, they can be a very inexpensive way to buy. However, many people have a more unique (or larger) hair loss pattern than the standard horseshoe shape.
Custom Hair Systems — The obvious benefit to a custom system is the level of measurements that are taken for your specific size and pattern of hair loss. Getting an exact color match and organic graduation into your own natural growing hair is also an important detail to achieving an undetectable look.On top of the added levels of detail, a custom hair system is often made from lighter materials. Plus more attention is usually paid to the front hairline (often thought to be the most important part of a hair system).Learn more about how to choose the right hair system base for you.How is a hair replacement system attached?There are three popular attachment methods these days; clips, glue or tape. Glue (often called bonding adhesive) and tape are used by well over 90% of hair wearers because they both offer a more secure attachment. Most people also believe that using adhesive or tape helps to achieve a more natural appearance.
A hair system attachment can last up to 4 weeks using stronger glues or tape with more tack. However, many people prefer to use a daily wear bond so they can take their system off every night or after a few days of wear.The most common problem for men and women who wear hair replacement systems is attachment. You have a sea of options to choose from and since we're all different, one size doesn't always fit all.
