How to choose toupee hair replacement system online
Are you frustrated with your hair loss or thinning spots? Are you confused by the variety of hair replacement systems on the Internet and don't know where to start? This is a useful step-by-step guide for you to choose your first hair replacement system.
Step 1: select a base
When you search online for men's hair replacement systems, there are many options. Each has a different foundation. In fact, there are only four basic types of basic materials: lace, skin, mono and silk. All the different bases you see are made of one or more of these four basic materials.
Lace base - lace is soft, light, delicate and completely breathable. There are two lace materials, Swiss lace and French lace. Swiss lace is the best and most subtle, it needs to be handled with care. French lace is stronger and more durable than Swiss lace. For lace bases, we usually use single knots on the front hairline and double knots elsewhere, which helps to create a natural hairline. If you exercise regularly, the lace base is the best choice for you because it's breathable. Generally speaking, lace basic hair system can last for 2-4 months of proper care and maintenance.
Skin - a skin foundation that, as the name suggests, looks and feels like your own skin. The hair is injected, V-looped or knotted to the base to move like your own hair. Especially in the front face, the skin base can be seamlessly integrated with the skin. Translucent materials create the illusion that hair grows directly from the scalp, giving you the most natural appearance. The only drawback is the lack of air permeability at the bottom of the skin.
Mono base - the sole is thicker and stronger than lace and skin, and will definitely last longer. Monofilament based hair system can last more than 6 months. They can carry medium thick hair with a density of about 120% or 130%. It's for those who want to find thick hair and save money.
Silk top base - silk top base creates the most natural and scalp like hairline. Using the three-layer system, when the hair knots, the knot is hidden under the silk between the two layers, and then the hair is injected through the silk material, so that the knot is 100% invisible, giving an illusion that the hair grows from the scalp. The only drawback is that the base of the silk top base hair system is thicker, not as breathable.
Hybrid foundation – you don't need to be limited to the above four options. There are combinations. You can mix lace with skin, single with skin, silk top with skin, even silk top, skin and lace according to your specific needs.
Step 2: choose your hair
There are three main types of hair for you to choose from, they are European hair, Indian head and synthetic hair.
European hair - European hair is super fine, soft and silky. The hair has never been chemically treated and the cuticle is still intact. Although this kind of hair is relatively expensive.
Indian remy hair - most of our hair systems are made from Indian remy hair. Indian hair is very similar to white hair, soft and delicate. It's also more affordable.
Synthetic hair - synthetic hair is a more economical option. For our hair system to blend with grey hair, grey hair is thermally friendly synthetic hair.
Step 3: choose a color
When you choose a color, make sure it matches the rest of your hair so that the hair system can mix with your own hair and people can't tell. If you don't have hair at all, you can choose the same color as your beard.
If you can't decide which color, please send some photos of your existing hair to our customer service, we will help you choose the right color. Or, you can buy our color rings to match colors, or send us your hair samples to match colors.
Step 4: choose hair density
In choosing the right hair density, we must choose according to their age and current hair thickness. It's not that the thicker the better. We have several density options, they are super light, light, medium light, medium, medium heavy and heavy. If you are not sure about the right density, please contact our customer service.
Step 5: choose hair quality
This is the easiest step. We have two textures available, wavy or straight, you can decide according to your preference.
Here you are! Check our inventory items for your hair system. If there is no stock, we have another option. We can customize the new hair system according to your special needs.
