Common Worries about Wearing a Hair Replacement System (And Why You Shouldn’t Worry!)

It’s estimated that hair loss and thinning affects over 8 million women in the UK, and experts predict that 80 per cent of men will experience hair loss at some point in their lives. Hair loss is a common condition not just brought on by the process of ageing; it can occur for people at any age, and for various reasons which aren’t entirely known to us.

Despite being prominent hair loss continues to be a devastating experience for people and creates a lot of anxiety. This is largely due to the emotional connection we have with our hair, our appearance and personality, where suffering from hair loss has shown to significantly lower the self-esteem of some people.

However, there are various hair restoration and replacement solutions available which can help to effectively cover up the signs of hair loss and restore confidence. If you’ve considered the benefits of a hair replacement system, you’ll know that these custom-made, high quality hair pieces can be used to cover small areas of hair loss or a whole head of hair. Getting a quality hair replacement system is a non-surgical treatment which will provide you with a highly natural looking and wearable solution.

The advanced systems are a far cry from the traditional wigs we’d never be seen in, however there are a few common worries that people have about getting a hair replacement system which we’d like to help ease:

That people will know I’m wearing a wig

A modern hair replacement system uses human hair which is attached intricately onto a discreet membrane and can be woven in with the existing hair. You’ll initially have a design consultation that will ensure your system is fully tailored to sit naturally with your existing hair, colour and style or the appearance you want. The new hair is even matched perfectly with the density and direction of the existing hair. Because of its high quality and natural appeal, wearing a bespoke hair piece will make it impossible for people to know that you’re wearing a wig.

Will it be secure?

There’ll be no horror of your hair replacement system slipping off — unlike wigs of the past they are measured to the exact size and shape of your head and will be tailor-made to fit perfectly and securely.

I’m worried it will be itchy and uncomfortable

With a custom fit, using human hair and quality materials for the membrane, your hair piece shouldn’t be uncomfortable or itchy and can be worn every day. If you have a very sensitive scalp you can wear a wig cap underneath, which your hair replacement specialist will be able to provide you with.

What about maintenance?

Although your hair replacement system does require regular maintenance to keep it in top condition, it won’t be much more than what you’d normally do to look after your natural hair. The hair system will need to be cleaned at least once a month and as it’s human hair you’re dealing with you’ll need to take care when brushing it and using heated styling tools. Your hair replacement system will need to replaced however with the right care they are very durable and can last for a long while.

Will it damage my natural hair?

A hair replacement specialist will make sure to take proper care not to damage your natural hair, taking its care into account when designing a tailored solution for you.

I won’t be able to change the style

A modern hair replacement system will allow you to style the hair however you want, and you can also have your system professionally styled and coloured if you decide you’d like to experiment. Simply take your hair piece to a specialist salon — you can find many salons that will offer a confidential consultation and service if you’re worried about people knowing.
