3 Hair Replacement Solutions

small_3664996852With the abundance of options out there in the hair replacement industry, it can be overwhelming to sift through the amount of information out there on the topic.  Many people have sought the help of a hair replacement salon offering a full line of products to help them choose which hair replacement solution is right for them.  In this blog, read about 3 hair replacement solutions that may work for your thinning hair.

Micro Point Solutions

Micro Point Solutions is an ideal product for those experiencing thinning hair.  Whether your hair has started to get thinner, or if you’ve always had thin hair, Micro Point Solutions is ideal for giving your hair instant body and volume.  This healthy and safe alternative to traditional extensions uses Cyberhair, which is 1/3 the weight of human hair, so it won’t pull or cause stress to your naturally growing hair.

Hair Systems

Hair systems are great for people who need partial coverage for thinning or bald areas.  There are four different types of hair systems to choose from, depending on the amount of partial hair loss you are experiencing:

  • Part System – Ideal for thinning in the part and/or crown area
  • Top of Head System – Ideal for thinning and/or bald on the top of the head and/or sides
  • ¾ System – Ideal for overall thinning but for those who still maintain a natural hairline
  • Integration System – Ideal for over all thinning hair

Hair systems are ideal for men and women with Alopecia Areata, Trichotillamania, or medically related hair loss.

Full Cap Wigs

Full cap wigs are designed for full coverage of your scalp.  There are three options for the cap portion of the wig:

  • Machine Made
  • Monofilament Top
  • Fully Hand Tied

All full cap wigs consist of a combination of fabrics and compounds to replicate natural hair growth patterns and the look of the scalp.  Machine made caps work well for people experiencing partial hair loss.  They are made of a smooth elastic so it has the ability to stretch to fit one’s head.  This option may present limitations in quality.  Fully hand tied caps have knots that are tied very close together with 3-4 strands of hair per knot.  This type of cap is durable and gives the illusion of hair growing right out of the scalp no matter where you part.  Monofilament Tops combine the two caps, which includes a fully hand tied top and a machine made back, which allows wearers to be comfortable with a natural looking top.

3 Solutions For Trichotillomania Sufferers

small__3982668517People with the impulsive hair pulling disorder, trichotillomania, may choose to seek treatment or therapy to deal with their disorder.  However, even though treatment is sought, individuals with trichotillomania may still be suffering from the embarrassment of bald spots caused by their disorder.  There are several options available for trich sufferers who are transitioning into recovery, of which I’ll explain in this blog.

Trich can, for some people, become so bad that their hair pulling is causing noticeable bald spots in their hair.  When treatment is received, the hair pulling may stop, but the bald spots are still there.  Below are three options to help you transition from your excessive hair pulling disorder into recovery:

Micro Point Links

If you have some hairs to work with, MicroPoint Links may be the answer you’ve been looking for to cover up bald spots from trichotillomania.  MicroPoint Links are four Cyberhairs that are attached to one of your existing hairs.  They are great for highly visible areas such as the top and sides of your head.

MicroPoint Panels

If you’re experiencing thinning hair in the back of your head, MicroPoint Panels will work great to bring back the thick look of your hair while your natural hair grows back in.  MicroPoint Panels are attached using a safe adhesive, which is easily removed if need be.  Made out of Cyberhair, they look, feel, and style just like your regular hair.

Hair Support

Excessive hair pulling can damage hair follicles.  If you’ve been a long-time sufferer of trichotillomania, you may need to rejuvenate follicles to get your hair to grow back.  HairSupport by HairMax is a topical solution that cleans the scalp and follicles and stimulates hair regeneration.

Are you currently being treated for trichotillomania?  DK International understands how difficult it was for you to seek treatment in the first place.  In your free one-hour consultation in our private consultation room, one of our experienced and compassionate technicians will educate you on your different hair replacement options.  DK is also understanding about your privacy during this difficult transition in your life.  We’re here to help, so contact us today!  To learn more about the different ways we can help you with your hair replacement, connect with us on Facebook where we share our blog updates!
