Hair loss sufferers are often found seeking non-surgical solutions to their problems, just because they don’t want to go under the knife. There are numerous non-surgical options available to counter hair loss and baldness. One of the safest and probably the easiest way to hide your bald thatch is using a Hair Replacement System. There is a wide range of hair systems available to help you fake a thicker and fuller head of hair. Here we will discuss some commonly used hair replacement options and why a hair transplant surgery is a better option for you.
All hair replacement systems offer a temporary solution. Some are a little permanent and stay on your scalp for several weeks, but you will need some medical adhesive to attach it to the scalp. These adhesives are used to attach new synthetic hairs around the outer edges of the balding or thinning areas. Reapplication of adhesives is done between 4 to 6 weeks, just as often as you get a proper hair cut.
Non-permanent systems come with special tapes that an individual has to replace every few days. Toupee tapes are available in different shapes, cuttings and contours. Find the one that matches the outer edge of your base. Stick the tape to the hairpiece following the instructions on the tape and carefully attach it to scalp. These tapes normally maintain their stickiness for 4 to 5 days, but this can vary among different brands. After that you will have to repeat the process.
Another non-surgical hair restoration process involves braiding hair weaves or extensions into the existing hairs of the patient. Hair replacement systems are then sewed into these braids. It is the most risky solution as tight braiding and the weight of hair weaves can inflame your hair follicles, triggering Traction Alopecia.
In this case strings of several synthetic hairs are glued to existing hairs. A special type of in hair integration pulls the patient’s own hair over the entire scalp for added fullness. But it is used in case when a patient has generalized hair thinning with no bald patches.
The downside of these hair replacement options is that they not only offer temporary solution but also give unnatural looking results. If you are seeking a permanent and natural looking solution for your balding head, a hair transplant surgery may be worth considering. The surgery uses balding resistant hair follicles for transplantation, which do not take effect of Dihydrotestosterone and thus do not fall off, despite being moved to baldness prone areas of the scalp.
