What is a Mens Hair System?
Typically a mens hair system refers to a hair piece of smaller size that is worn at the top and crown area of the scalp for partial coverage to cover hair loss. Unlike a hair wig that offers full coverage of your head. It can be made using either synthetic or real human hair.
Broadly speaking, the best mens hair system is one that should firstly give you a very natural and realistic appearance with the hair perfectly blending with your own hair. Further to this it will feel very comfy and breathable, as well as easy to wear and remove.

Non-surgical hair replacements including hair systems fulfil their value of use as soon as they are put into use by instantly presenting the full head of hair look wanted by the users. Our hair systems come with practically zero side effects given they are completely non-surgical and medication-free.

This is when the whole hairpiece would be removed from your scalp, and the inside of the hairpiece and your scalp are both cleaned, scalp trimmed if needed and all residue removed to ensure a healthy environment.
Then the hairpiece is reattached again.
This process will be repeated every 1-3 weeks for the lifespan of the hairpiece.
WILL A MENS HAIR SYSTEM BLOW OFF IN THE WIND?
Mens hair systems that have been bonded correctly will not fly off your head. Wind specifically requires something with a space underneath to be able to have any hope of lifting anything. With your mens hair system, there simply is no space where wind can ‘grab’ your piece and have any affect. So in summary as long as your bond is secure (whether that be tape, glue) you won’t have any issues with strong wind.
