What density do I choose in my hair replacement according to my needs?

Density is one of the things that worry the most to new users of hair systems. If we want to get a natural look, it is very important to get the correct density. To do this, we must analyse the density of our own hair and find a similar system.

If your hair loss is very advanced, you’ve completely lost the hair on the top and on the sides are small bare spots, then choose a low density.

If your sides still have much hair and it is in the upper area where you have significant thinning hair, then choose a medium density. High densities are not usually recommended except in special cases, since they do not provide a natural look.

Swiss and French laces are the finest and therefore also the most fragile, admitting low and medium densities ranging from 50% to 100%, this is the average density of a teenage male without alopecia and thus the most recommended.

Microskin (also named poly or skin) and fine welded mono are thicker and stronger bases, admitting medium and high densities ranging from 100% to 130% which is very heavy.

As you can see, we dare with eveything. Just tell us your idea and we will make it happen. It’s not true that, because you wear a hair system, you have to limit your hairstyle. Possibilities are endless.

Hair replacement + water: overcome your fears

Holidays often include beach and pool moments, which increase the fears of some hair replacement users. Today we are going to help you to overcome your fear of the water and enjoy your hair without worries.

First of all, forget the idea that you’re going to go out of the water and see your hair system floating in the middle of the pool or that a wave is coming and take it off. This does not happen. Hair systems are attached with very strong adhesives that make these situations impossible .

If you are still worried, test it. Go to a deserted beach or a private pool or get up early to get an unattended place and jump into the water. Do a cannonball, go for the gold or do a triple somersault, try everything and see how your system reacts and how far you can get.

Adhesives are formulated to be waterproof but you must plan it well. First, it’s important to note that you should not wet the system up to 12 hours after placing the adhesives. Secondly, from the 5th day since last maintenance, it is better not to be risky, because adhesives are not at its full capacity.

If you want to be super sure that the system is perfectly attached, pull the hair gently (watch out! do not rip it off!) to check it. We recommend placing tapes at front level, as these are more water resistant than the liquid glue. Those we like the most for this kind of situations because of their resistance are Supertape.

Another product that works wonders in these situations is Scalp Protector which is specially formulated for sports and swimming, as well as for hot and humid climates.

With all this you’re ready to show you swimming style anywhere!

Pics: A daring hairstyle with a hair system is possible too

Today we are going to share with you the pictures of one of our latest clients. He wanted a very daring hairstyle and our hairdresser Javier Mota achieved it. We made him an undercut with a very accentuate layered and a quiff with more volume on the middle. We leave you pictures with indoors and outdoors light so you can appreciate all the details: colour, density, finished, etc.

What is the knot sealer used for?

If you’ve ever wondered this, today we give you the answer about the use and benefits of this product which is ideal for those users who want to keep their hair systems in top conditions for a while longer.

Sellador de nudos

Knot sealer is a liquid spray very easy to use, just spray inside the system once it’s clean and let it dry for a few minutes before placing. This way, it acts sealing and protecting the knots, that is, the place where each hair is tied at the base of the hair prosthesis. Sealer covers each knot so that it remains tight and does not tend to loosen. It also reinforces the base against brokes.
