How To Maintain A Hair Replacement System

How To Maintain A Hair Replacement System

Hair Replacement systems have become increasingly more popular, especially for middle aged men that are experiencing male pattern baldness. More and more men have been turning away from getting hair transplants and towards non-surgical solutions- like Hair Replacement Systems. But, there’s many questions and fears still surrounding them. Some of the most frequently asked questions that we get are perfectly normal to ask before investing in a hair replacement unit. While some are simply questions, others are curious to know exactly how easy it is (or not) to maintain a hair replacement system. 

So, in the hopes of helping someone who’s going through male pattern baldness and is thinking of getting a hair replacement system, we decided to comb through a couple of those questions now! Let’s get started…

Will my hair system stay on forever?

Although the idea of having a hair replacement system last a lifetime seems ideal for most clients, this notion is unrealistic. The reasoning behind this is due to the simple fact that everything is relative to the individual. Meaning life styles vary which then impact the durability of the hair system but you can expect your hair system to last 6 months to a year. 

Can I sleep with my Hair Replacement System on?

Yes! One of the main concerns that men have when it comes to getting a hair replacement system is sleeping with one. We get it! You finally have a full head of hair and the youth style you want again, so the last thing you want to do is ruin it. But, you don’t have to worry! 

With a hair system from Man Hair, your unit is securely fitted with the correct adhesive product and professionally done by one of our expert hair stylists, you can relax and sleep with no worries. When you visit our salon for the first time, you can relax knowing that the system is securely bonded on your head. You can even continue with daily activities straight away. You can have a peaceful nights sleep knowing that your hair replacement is secure and will remain so until your next refusion.

Can I exercise with a hair system on?

Once you have your system bonded on, it is advised to wait 24 to 48 hours before exercising, for the bond to set. Therefore, your body temperature needs to remain cool. The waiting period is recommended to avoid getting your head wet, swimming, physical activity or anything that will involve your body releasing excessive sweat or an increase in your temperature. 

Can I get it wet?

Yes, you can Shampoo and Condition your hair system like it were your own. And you can work out, be active and sweat from physical activity no problem with the right system.

What you must be careful of is the chlorine you will encounter in pools and the salt found in ocean water. The problem with both of these substances is that they have a tendency to dry out your hair. 

However, with the proper steps, you can make sure your hair replacement system stays in top-notch shape.

  • Before you go swimming, rinse your hair restoration system in freshwater. This will prevent your hair system from soaking up excessive amounts of chlorine or salt. 
  • Make sure to rinse your hair thoroughly after swimming to wash out excess amounts of these substances. 
  • Also make sure that after swimming, you use generous amounts of conditioner on your hair to help restore and maintain the softness.
  • Another alternative to protecting your hair restoration system if you swim a lot is to wear a swimming cap to prevent excessive exposure. 
  • And always be sure to let your stylist know if you intend on engaging in frequent water activities.

And the biggest most asked question is…Will my Hair Replacement System fall off?

One of the main concerns people have regarding hair systems is whether they will just fall off, or fly off in a gust of wind once the bond starts to break down. The answer to that question is a big No. The prospect of having your hair system fall off is mortifying! But you can be assured that even in the very offset chance that it does slightly lift (after months of wear) it will not come off completely. The speed of the breakdown varies for everyone due to the uniqueness of their body chemistry. But a properly attached hair system will stay on your head for months without any issues.

If (and we emphasize the word IF) you do ever feel any kind of lifting of your hair system just call to have your unit looked at right away. But, to make sure that you never experience a lift and to make sure that your hair always looks its best, appointments are always scheduled in advance before your replacement system reaches its suggested end-of-lifespan.
