1 Replacement systems
Wearing a hair replacement system can solve your hair loss problems overnight! However, you should be aware of a few facts if you are to achieve the ultimate goal of a natural appearance.
Everyone believes they can easily spot someone wearing a hairpiece, yet, outside of the obvious 12th Century toupee, making an accurate assumption can be a difficult task. This is because in the past, the materials were heavy and the construction methods were somewhat primitive. Hence, the long list of popular slang terms, including “toupee,” “wig,” and “rug.”
Times in the hair replacement industry have changed. Thanks to a better understanding of how hair grows, plus advanced construction materials, what we once called a "hairpiece" we now call a hair replacement system.
2 Types of hair systems available
When searching the market you may come across two variations – Custom type and Stock type. Let’s get familiar with differences amongst them.
There are two different types of hair systems available; Stock and Custom. With this in mind, the names should indicate the biggest difference between the two systems.
Stock Hair Systems — Stock hair systems are mass produced according to common color gradations and hair loss sizes. Whereas we buy stock hair systems "as is" and off-the-shelf, they can be an inexpensive way to buy. However, a number of people have a unique (or larger) hair loss pattern than the standard horseshoe shape.
Custom Hair Systems — The obvious benefit to a custom system is the level of measurements taken for your specific size and pattern of hair loss. Getting an exact color match and organic gradation into your own natural growing hair is an important detail to achieve an undetectable look.
As a matter of fact, we often choose a custom hair system made of lighter materials because of the ventilation. In addition, the manufacturers gave more attention to the front hairline (often thought to be the most important part of a hair system).
