If you are like many people who when they first started to read about hair systems and wigs are left with questions like “what is the difference”? This is something we are asked quite often. Aren’t hair replacement systems and wigs basically the same thing? Well, here is a basic rundown of the explanation that is normally given by hair replacement providers to explain how thinning hair can be concealed. Hair replacement is a phrase that has been around for over twenty years to separate themselves from wigs. It was considered to be a more progressive solution to thinning hair and hair loss. A hair replacement system has several stages, such as scalp preparation, a hair system fitting, a styling session that also involves showing you steps on how to maintain your hair. The entire systems focus is on duplicating the look of your hair before you noticed your hair was thinning. What Is A Hair Replacement System? Trying to explain a Hair Replacement System in spite of all the 1990’s marketing and commercials showcasing hair systems, it is actually quite difficult. Hair systems are made from hand woven 100% real human hair or synthetic hair. The base that the hair is attached to is made from different materials. Two of the more common materials are a lace material or a very thin “skin” like material. The hair that is attached to the base and then the bottom of the base is then attached to the client’s head non-surgically.

Losing hair can be psychologically devastating, as well as unsightly. Some people want a wig to look different for an occasion.

Here's why human hair wigs can make all the difference to hair loss and make someone feel a million dollars. They Don't Look Like a Wig Some synthetic wigs just shout "wig," as they have a firm appearance and feel like plastic. A human hair wig, on the other hand, is more natural in touch and texture. Human hair is softer and finer than a synthetic wig. The hairline also looks more natural with a human hair wig, and the movement of the hairs is very realistic. The color in a synthetic wig looks flat, but with a human hair piece, the colors have far more dimension, enhancing that natural look. Human Hair Wigs Are Easier to Style While some synthetic wigs are rigid in appearance and feel firm to touch, a human hair wig is more versatile. The client will be able to get a human hair wig styled to their preference, and many are very easy to cut to shape. If they want more volume, they can get a layered style and a feminine look by having a shoulder-length wig. With a human hair wig, it can even be colored in a different shade. But wig wearers need to go easy on the color. Even with a wig, too much colorant can damage the hair. They Have Good Heat Resistance Some synthetic wigs are not very heat-resistant, and if they get [...]
