A hair weave system is defined by the American Hair Loss Council as “Any external hair bearing device added to existing hair or scalp to give one the appearance of a fuller head of hair. (i.e. Hair weaves, hair extensions, hair pieces, toupees, non-surgical hair replacements, partial hair prostheses, hair wefts, etc.) Devices may consist of human hair, synthetic fiber or a combination of both.” These hairs are generally dyed to match your own hair. There are many variations of hair systems which can make a difference in how good it looks and how detectable it is. There are also different ways of attachment which will influence how much you like having it on.
Units that are physically bonded to your skin using a medical adhesive can be worn during swimming or on the most blustery day. Even units that are attached with clips, weaves, or tape should be fine as long as they are attached properly. Also, make sure the tape or bonding you are using is waterproof.
At the time of your free consultation, we will assess your unique needs and quote a price to meet your individual objectives. Generally the cost ranges between $1500 – $3500. The total fee includes the hair and the custom hair system design. Although a custom hair system can be viewed as a substantial investment, the results are outstanding and may be less expensive than other hair loss treatments when factored over a lifetime. The improvement in self-image and confidence is well worth the cost for most people!
How comfortable the system is depends strictly on the attachment. Remember, comfort is highly individual. Speaking to other system wearers and clients of the hair replacement center you are considering is a good idea before making a purchase. But you must be the final judge.
There are several reasons including loss of hair (and you thought that was solved!) fading of hair in sunlight (in systems made with human hair), and general deterioration of the hair piece as a whole. How often this happens depends on the sturdiness of the base, whether human or synthetic hair is used (synthetic hairs are typically more durable and less resistant to fading). Also, semi-permanent systems may need to be replaced more frequently simply because they are worn 24 hours a day and subject to wear and tear during sleep and showering. Of course, you can sleep and shower with your system on if you use other methods of attachment, you also have the option of removing the system during these times.
At your consultation we teach you all about your new system. Our system have been known to last for years. Our one year guarantee is for all repairs within one year of purchase. There after there will be a minimum cost for repairs. All repairs include conditioning and restyling.
This is a subject of debate and each company seems to have their own opinion. Human hair fades in color faster than synthetic hair generally, however human hair typically has the best ‘look and feel.’ Synthetic hair tend to be more durable.
If you go to a highly trained and qualified salon, they can provide you with a virtually undetectable system. Again, performing some maintenance yourself on a weekly basis will help keep your system looking its best between haircuts and styling sessions. People who knew you before you got the system might recognize that your appearance has changed and that you are wearing a hair system. You may also be surprised how many people think you either lost weight, got new glasses, or made some other change. If you feel more comfortable about your appearance and more confident, that is the most important thing.
