Hair Replacement For Men
Men generally start losing their hair as young as eighteen years of age and so require hair replacement systems for men.
The hair initially starts to thin at the crown and generally progress to the front hairline, or start receding from the front hairline and progress towards the crown.
Because of the DHT carried in the body via large amounts of testosterone, the follicle narrows and eventually and eventually goes completely.
This means that hair loss starts by the hair visibly thinning (follicle narrowing) and then the hair falls out and stops growing altogether (Follicle dies).
Hair replacement for men is very popular.
Hair systems are made to be attached to the thinning or hair loss area of the head.
Systems are made from synthetic or human hair.
Synthetic do not look that natural and only last a short while.
Human hair systems for men are a lot more natural and can last a year. The hair used is from China, India or Europe. Normally you would try to use hair whereby the texture best suits the mans’ own hair.
Bases for a mans hair replacement system is made from French lace or a PU skin.
French lace is very natural, lightweight and allows the scalp to breath. The only negative is that against a scalp, you will not get the perfect blend of scalp and is harder to adhere to the scalp. Therefore the system will have PU edging around it allowing for a perfect adhering to the scalp. This system is particularly good when the man has a little hair or has a sensitive scalp.
The other base used is a very thin PU material “Bio Scalp”. This system is very thin. natural and lightweight.
This Hair Replacement for Men system can only be used on areas of complete hair loss. It is particularly beneficial for when you want to brush your hair back from the front hairline (exposed hairline)
With the lace system, it is necessary to add a lace frontal if the man has no hair at the front hairline. This will enable the wearer to brush the hair back off the face (exposed hairline).
The various ways of attaching the system to the head are clips for daily use, tape and/or glue for attaching about 3 weeks at a time or the unique Authentic Locks system, “The Link System.
This method is particularly good as there is no need for adhesives and the wearer of this hair replacement for men system can stay attached for 6 weeks at a time.
Hair replacement for men doesn’t have to be expensive
I have balding area on my crown and receding temples.
I went to Advanced Studios who wanted to shave my thinning hair and then glue a hair system on and charge me £1800. I was horrified.
I found Authentic Locks Hair Centre on the internet.
Lisa gave me a free consultation and explained how she would make a system for my crown, attaching this with her Link System, and then a small piece for my front hairline.
The total price was less than half I was quoted from Advanced Studio and more natural.
