Hair systems: contraindications and downsides of using it

In our blog we have often talked about the great benefits which new generation hair systems guarantee to gain back the hair you once had and have an active and happy life, but are there any contraindications?

Like everything in life, even hair systems have downsides which we will list here below, so that, those who are going to make this step, are aware not just of the benefits of a hair system, but also of its downsides.

Social taboo

social taboo - Hair systemsHair system still is to this day, 2018, a social taboo in many environments. For many it is lived as something artificial and ridiculous. All because of old toupee, which were so unnatural and mobile that were used in lots of TV and theathral shows as an element to easily joke about.

That’s why using hair systems can cause paranoia and fears in those who are very sensitive towards other people’s opinions because of their personal insecurities. The remedy can even become worse than baldness itself.

So one should personally and internally evaluate what is worse for him or her between alopecia and the fear of other people’s judgments and of being exposed.

Hair that doesn’t grow

Despite hair systems having completely natural hairs, the latter don’t grow as in nature and always maintain the same length. So, when someone performs his or her first installation and has his or her hair cut, we always recommend not exceeding with the haircut. It is better, indeed, to have long hair which can eventually be cut, than too short hair which can’t lengthen.

It has to be changed regularly

A hair system doesn’t last forever. Hair wears out or its base can break overtime. So we have to take in account that every few months you need to change your system with a new one. Therefore we have to consider how much it will cost us and if we are willing to have this continuous expense during our life in order to gain back the look we once had.

Weekly maintenance

In case of hair systems which have to adhere to the scalp with glues and adhesives, we have to keep in mind that we will have to perform maintenance every week.

Maintenance is probably the most annoying aspect for the hair system user and for this reason people often prefer to use, even paying significant figures, stronger glues and perform maintenance once a month in specialized centers.

We recommend you, instead, to perform maintenance once a week, so as to avoid dermatitis and fungi. Furthermore, we suggest you perform it alone at your home, so you not only save a lot of money, but you also have a better and more customized integration. In hair system scope if you do it yourself it is a lot better than relying on a pseudo expert who, quickly and with an important fee, performs an operation which can be easily done alone at home.

This aspect must be considered too.
