For those who suffer from hair loss and wish to appear to have full heads of hair without any medical intervention, non-surgical hair replacement could be an excellent option. Although it was socially awkward for some people, no one would notice the difference with new technology. A natural appearance is not a problem with improved manufacturing techniques. It is also crucial that hair loss consumers understand the existing pros and cons before buying a hair system. To begin, let’s define what a hair system is.
What is a Hair System?
Hair systems are hairpieces or partial wigs of synthetic hair or excellent quality human hair used to hide baldness or for theatrical purposes. Despite the association of hair systems with male wearers, many women use them to either extend their existing hair or cover a partially exposed scalp. The hairpieces are commonly called toupees or units.
Hair systems are often custom-made to the needs of a client. They are held to one’s head using an adhesive or an elastic band. A good hair system should achieve the perfect match to the hair of the customer, and it includes hair colour, hair density, texture and straightness, etc.
The base of a hair system mainly uses polymers, meshes, or a combination of these two. To be more specific, the mesh fabric provides a natural & undetectable hairline, and it’s very lightweight and comfortable to wear; While polymers are pretty durable and less expensive and are also very easy to attach.
The hair of a hair system could be made of human hair, artificial fibres or animal hair. European hair is the most expensive due to its softness, while Asian hair, which is dark & straight, is the cheapest because manufacturers have to dye or bleach it before coming into use. Moreover, human hair is very fragile. Even the most expensive ones require regular maintenance and need to be replaced over time.
The lifespan of them depends on different factors, including the type of hair, the material of base and your daily maintenance routine. For example, if you choose a French lace hair system, it might last for 4 to 6 months, but if you choose a 0.06mm super thin skin hair system, it may be used for only 2 to 3 months.
Who Uses a Hair System?
The emotional prospects of living with hair loss can be challenging. We usually have clients who suffer from hair loss due to different reasons; some of them had it because of genetic carriers, unbalanced diet, radiation, stress pulling, chemotherapy or any other various kinds of alopecia or scalp deformities. So, anyone struggling with hair loss can use a hair system to get a full head of hair without painful and expensive surgery.
What Are The Benefits Of A Hair System?
Choosing the right system for yourself can be hard sometimes, especially when facing a comprehensive collection of choices. But still, there are many advantages in certain situations that you should give it a shot:
Immediate results: A modern hair system will give you a quick change of look which is the best part! It also means you could customize your hair system according to personal needs, and if its quality is good enough, you can wear it for a relatively long period.
Lower cost: Getting yourself a hair system is much cheaper than having a hair transplant, not to mention it can avoid the possible risks, including prolonged recovery time, poor results and postoperative complications. Even though a hair system often requires washing, repairing and replacing, it’s still within the range of what most people can afford. Even better is that you could buy it in multiples, which means you could change your look freely and have a spare if something happens to one system.
A patient’s friend: Hair systems are the real deal for those suffering from hair loss because of serious medical issues such as cancer or thyroid disease. They are out of condition, and their body might be too weak to have hair surgery, or they’ve already lost almost all hair. Moreover, it is also suitable for people with other problems such as alopecia totalis or alopecia areata.
Whether you choose a hair transplant surgery or a hair replacement system, what works for others might not work for you the best. Pick the one that suits you the most. And remember to do some research before you make the final decision. It is also vitally important for you to consult a professional or a dermatologist for their advice.
