The Difference Between Hair Replacement and Wigs

2018-10-08T11:37:42-04:00By |

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. Once the system is in place and secure, the hair is then cut and styled to blend in to your hair on the sides and back. This gives you an undetectable look. During your initial hair [...]

The Top Six Reasons to Wear Human Hair Wigs

2018-10-08T11:37:50-04:00By |

Losing hair can be psychologically devastating, as well as unsightly. Some people want a wig to look different for an occasion. Whether a person wants a new look or because they have hair loss is due to alopecia areata or cancer, looking good is a vital part of maintaining self-esteem and confidence. 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 [...]

Five Prominent Celebrities Who Regularly Wear Hair Systems

2016-03-29T12:28:58-04:00By |

Deciding to use wigs and toupees is tough for many men, as they’re often concerned with wearing the one that does not look natural. However, the right hair system can make thinning hair look youthful and lush. That's why many of Hollywood's leading men use hair systems. If hair systems are good enough for these five men in the public eye, then they can work for you, too! John Travolta We all remember “Saturday Night Fever,” during which Travolta danced at discos while showing off a luscious mane of hair. Unfortunately for him, age has thinned those once-beloved locks. A hair system have helped Travolta combat Father Time skillfully, though. Whether he's playing Vincent Vega in “Pulp Fiction” or sporting a sparkling salt-and-pepper look for “The Forger,” hair systems have allowed Travolta to continue to land leading roles well into his 60s. Nicolas Cage There are obvious parallels to Travolta, as Cage is roughly the same age with a similar resume. They even starred together in the 1997 thriller “Face/Off.” Like his co-star, Cage also has used hair systems when playing certain characters. While Cage has been open to playing roles that expose his hair loss, he's definitely rocked a hair system in movies such as “Con-Air.” Anyone who's seen that movie knows his long locks were way more believable than his Southern accent. Robert Pattinson Not all stars who wear hair systems are "old," as the 29-year-old Pattinson has been fighting hair loss since his early 20s. You wouldn't know it from watching the Twilight movies, but being Team Edward means being Team hair system. Pattinson pulls off his hair skillfully, as evidenced by the adoration of millions of teenage girls. Odds are his adoring masses have no idea [...]

How to Properly Care for Your Human Hair Wig

2018-10-08T11:50:36-04:00By |

Finding and choosing the right wigs for you is a big deal. It can be a life-changing experience and is truly an investment in yourself and your future. It is important then to take good care of your wigs on a regular and consistent basis to keep them looking new, clean, and stylish. These imperative care practices are necessary for all kinds of wigs, despite differing in specific processes for the various types. Human hair wigs, for example, can be cleaned and styled differently than synthetic hair wigs, but both require such upkeep (ie – regular cleaning) to ensure longevity. Though most conventional wigs are synthetic, today we are going to talk about four different areas of proper care practices for human hair wigs. Storing When not being worn, your wig should always be stored on a wig block or wig stand to keep it from getting tangled, damaged, or misshapen. It is best to keep the stand in a dry location that is free from moisture, mold, dirt, and dust as well as extreme temperatures. High heat, from a lamp or direct sunlight, should be avoided. Cleaning To clean your wig, begin by making sure that it is free of tangles by working through the strands with a comb, starting at the ends and working towards the cap. You will use shampoo for cleaning the wig, but it is important to avoid brands like Clairol, Pantene, Sauve, or Head & Shoulders as these products contain a high percentage of chemicals that accelerate the loss of color and moisture. Some hair specialists will recommend that you wash your wig by submerging it in water while others will suggest sticking to running water or even cleaning [...]
