Frequently asked questions about Hair Replacement
By Philip Ring
Is it itchy?
The only time the system would get itchy is when the adhesive is getting close to needing to be reapplied or you happen to be sensitive to the adhesive or tape.
Will the adhesive clog my scalp and break me out?
No, the adhesives are advanced and do not block your follicles or clog your pores. You will continue to grow hair underneath the system without any change to the amount or speed that it grows.
Is it human hair?
YES, each hair system is human hair and is made by hand. It may have synthetic fibers added throughout if there is a high percentage of grey.
How often do you have to maintain/fix it?
With the adhesive I use, I recommend application every 3-4 weeks. While the tape needs to be adjusted weekly. I personally love the tape adhesive, even if it needs to be reapplied more regularly because its very easy to clean and easy to learn to apply it yourself at home. I am a firm believer in empowering my clients to know how to reapply their system on their own
How long does a standard system last?
My preferred systems last between 3-6 months. A lot of this has to do with your lifestyle and how well you care for your system. If you’re a very active outdoorsy person, expect shorter lifespan of the hair system.I only use skeen and sonic lace system that the hair does not shed as it is bonded to the system with ultrasound waves.
What the best products to use?
Most of my clients prefer two types of adhesives; Ghost bond platinum and Hairskeen hair tape. These are super strong and super gentle on the skin. There are so many options but these seem to be the two most popular methods of application with my clients
Will people see my hair system??
If applied and maintained correctly, your system will be undetectable.
Is it a lot of work?
Wearing a hair system is like wearing contact lenses… It takes a little bit of practice and getting used to, but once you get the hang of it- it’s very quick and effective
