Hair systems 

When a full wig is not needed, it is possible to create a hair system - be it a toupee or hairpieces for both men and women. 

These ready-made systems are designed on various types of bases and sizes, available in both Synthetic and Human Hair in a wide range of colours. 

 

Anyone can wear a hair system regardless of age, hair type, or degree of hair loss. First, your hair will be examined to determine where additional hair needs to be placed to create a fuller appearance. Hair that matches your precise colour, texture, curl pattern and density is added into a virtually invisible base layer that breathes like skin. The hair is placed in the angle and direction of your own hair growth. The new hair is secured to the scalp using a medical-grade adhesive and seamlessly blended with your existing hair. Your hair is then cut, shaped, and styled to achieve your desired look.

What is a hair system made of?

The hair systems today use two materials to construct the bases: mesh fabric or polymers.

Mesh Fabric:

Mesh is typically made of polyester or nylon and is usually used to build the hairline of a good product. They can be used throughout the entire system, providing a natural, life-like appearance. However, mesh fabric is not feasible for long-term use.

  Pros:

  •  The hairline is natural and untraceable

  •  Material is lightweight, breathable, and comfortable
     

Cons:

  •  More pricey

  •  Very delicate and less durable

  •  Needs to be replaced more frequently

Polymers:

Polymers are made of silicone or polyurethane and are used to create a material that mimics the appearance of skin.

 

Hair restoration systems that use polymers tend to be more robust.

Pros:

  • Can be less costly than meshes

  • Highly durable

  • Easy attachment
     

Cons:

  • Can be extremely hot and uncomfortable

  • Has a less natural look, unless the hairline is made of lace

What can you do while wearing a

modern-day hair system?

There are very few limitations while wearing a modern hair system if they have the proper adhesive. In fact, you can shower, sleep, exercise, swim, cut, style, and colour your hair as if it were your own naturally growing hair. In other words, you can essentially live your life as you would without it.

How long will your hair system last?

It’s difficult to predict how long your hair system will last. It depends on many factors, including the base material and how you care for your system.

 

There are a few things you can do to extend the life of your hair system:

  • Avoid hot water, blow-dryers, and shampoos with harsh ingredients

  • Use a satin pillowcase to minimize friction

  • Try not to overdo it on products 

  • Avoid hair care products that contain alcohol

  • Use conditioner every time you shampoo.

    Similarly, there are several factors that can cause your hair system to decline more quickly:
     

  • Treating it roughly

  • Brushing too hard or too often

  • Brushing hair when wet

  • Using harsh shampoos

  • Shampooing too often

  • Allowing products to build-up

  • Overly chlorinated pools
