Hair replacement system is the non-surgical hair loss solution option. Hair replacements are safe alternatives to hair transplants, micro-grafts surgical hair restoration, or chemicals medications.
Some hair replacements are permanent for several weeks with the use of medical adhesives, bonding, or integration. In a non-permanent attachment, special tapes are used and need to be replaced every few days
Bonding, also called fusion, is the use of medical adhesives to attach the added new hair around the perimeters to the balding or thinning areas of the scalp. Reapplication of the process is done between four to six weeks, as often as getting haircuts.
Hair weaves are braided hair into the existing hair and 'sewing' the added hair replacement to the braids. Avoid hair weaving since the tight braiding used in this procedure pulls the hair and causes hair follicular inflammation and more hair loss.
In hair integration, strings of several hairs are glued to existing hair. Hair integration is also used as a special hair replacement made with large openings for pulling the client's own hair through for added fullness. This is used for people whose hair is thinning evenly all around and not with large bald areas.
Early in the history of the-vu Margarita Dominguez wrote an article about hair-removal titled Hair-B-Gone . It soon became clear that thousands of women needed to know about hair removal as the article's hits skyrocketed.
It also became clear that while the female readers wanted their hair to be gone, the male readers wanted their hair to grow back! So here, dear readers, is Hair-B-Back. A thoroughly researched piece which just might change the lives of a few of you.
As a typical man enters his thirties and forties, his hair abandons ship, never to return. Subtle changes occur in this man's universe. He gets less enthusiastic help from retail store assistants and waitresses. He can hang out un-noticed in nightclubs. He becomes one of the people he himself used to ignore.
Then one day his hair is back. He experiences flashing eyes and smiles from the young girls who found him invisible the day before. He can no longer remain invisible in that nightclub. He's back in the world again, as fickle as that world may be.
Where did the new hair come from?
For those men with a lot of money, a lot of time, and a high tolerance for pain, there is hair transplantation. If it works and the new hair is not rejected, the bald or thinning scalp is no longer bald, or it's a little less thinning. In a word, "Ouch!" And in a word from the wallet, "Aaaargh!"
Or if you ever noticed a man who suddenly went from thinning or balding to looking like he had a head covered in dust and shoe polish, then that is a man who paints his scalp with a make-up such as Couvre or and sprinkles on little fibers such as Hair-Magic or Toppik. The backs of their sofas, their car head restraints and their pillows are now brown and after sex their wives are covered in the very make-up that used to be on their husbands heads.
Drugs such as Finasteride and lotions such as Minoxidol are slow, don't help everyone who tries them, and rarely, if ever, bring back a whole head of thick hair.
The odds are if your male friend is suddenly no longer bald or thinning, he's wearing hair.
You wouldn't catch me dead in a hair !
The point here is, however, those who are vehemently opposed to the wearing of false hair just need to think it through. The same detractors crown their teeth, shave their beards and trim their nails in order to look their best. Hair make balding men look much better. If they didn't you'd have men plucking out good hair to look balding. No one would want to do that now, would they!
For a significantly higher price, a hair wearer can pay an annual fee and get unlimited service, maintenance and replacement units at an establishment such as The Hair Club.
Non-Surgical Bio-Matrix Technology
The Bio-Matrix procedure is an innovation of Hair Club. When Faisal Qureshi had his hair replaced by Bio-Matrix technology it brought national media interest and many new clients joined the HCI network as a result. Thousands of clients around the world have used the HCI patented Bio-Matrix Technology.
A Brief anatomy of a Non-Surgical hair replacement!
The hair is implanted into a base. The most common types of base are.
The Hair Itself
- Second skin. Also known as Trans-Dermal Retention or See-Thru Hair, this material looks invisible when placed on the scalp. It requires very accurate fitting and is wasted on dense hairpieces when the scalp doesn't show through. Men who exercise and sweat a lot will have to remove this kind of base each day for shampooing in order to prevent scalp odor from trapped sweat. This type of base should only be considered if the wearer rarely breaks a sweat! The scalp should be shaved smooth and bald for success with this base.
- Fine Nylon monofilament mesh. Almost as invisible on the skin as the above Polyurethane skin type, this is much better ventilated for active athletic types. The scalp can be shampooed with the unit in place, and it can be comfortable and hygienic for up to five days in a no-sweat situation.
- Other types of base include course mesh for even better ventilation with a slightly less natural look, Silicone as an alternative to the see-through Polyurethane above, and very wide mesh netting for those thinning men who want to pull their own hair through for integration.
Human hair is the most common, and for obvious reasons, looks the most like human hair! Synthetic hair is popular for men who are incapable of any kind of self-styling, but is damaged by hot water and melted by very hot air. There are some expensive synthetics such as Cyberhair from Japan , which are heat resistant. If you can style and re-color your own hair, get human!
Density is the number of hairs per square inch. If you are an older man with thin hair at the back and sides, don't order a medium to heavy density hair or it won't look natural. Keep the density medium to very light.
The Front Hairline
The line where the forehead ends and the hair starts is the area that gives away a bad hairpiece. If you can hold back your hair and remain undetected, your hairpiece is a good one. Regardless of which kind of base you have chosen, a see-through front is essential for this effect. Remember, people with real hair have very uneven hairlines. The hairline of a good hairpiece should never be too straight! Some units have a stronger Polyurethane front and a few hairs "undervented" (coming from underneath) to disguise the edge. This isn't nearly as convincing as a see-through front but it's more robust.

Comfort And Maintenance
Be gentle with the hair and never ever brush it when it's still wet from shampooing. Brushing it wet will pull out a lot of hairs and its usable life will be shortened. Don't use the hair dryer too much, and re-color the hair with a low peroxide hair color such as Wella Color Charm. (Only human hair may be dyed and dried with heat.)
Be prepared to see a lot of hair on the bathroom floor. Hair shed gradually until they're too thin and need replacing. Abrasion from the pillows at night can make a thin spot in a few months also.
How much do these things cost?
- Natural hair remains silky because of sebum from the root. When the hair is coming out of a hair replacement it doesn't get the benefit of natural scalp oils so a serum product such as Frizz Ease will give the new hair a silky feel.
- Dry a wet piece by rolling it in a towel.
- Tap an itchy portion of the scalp with your fingertips in order to scratch the itch without subjecting the hairpiece to wear in that spot.
Prices range from $500 to $3,000.
Some guys look good bald, and some look awful. It's a very personal decision. Also wearing hair takes a bit of getting used to, but it's really no big deal. You probably know several hair wearers without even realizing it!
