HAIR SYSTEM LIFESPAN: How Long Will My Toupee Last?
BASE MATERIAL USED
The base material used to construct a hair piece toupee affects the overall longevity of the hair toupee system. Different base materials have varying levels of durability and will thus last for varying lengths of time.
Here's the thing we want you to remember , the more realistic a hair system appears, the shorter its lifespan, and the more durable a hair system appears, the less natural it appears. If your customers want a remarkably natural-looking front hairline, it is important to remind them that the overall longevity and durability of their hair system may be jeopardized.
The base materials used on men’s toupee can be divided into four main categories:
1. Swiss Lace toupee（generally last between 1-2 months)
2. French Lace Hair Systems(generally last between 4-6 months)
3. Ultra Thin Skin Hair Systems(generally last between 1-2 months)
4. Poly-Base Hair Systems (generally last between 3-6 months)
5. Combination Mono with Poly Skin Hair Systems (generally last between 6 – 9 months)
Our men's hairpieces are made from lightly processed high-quality human hair, such as Remy Hair. All of the cuticles in Remy hair systems run in the same direction, which reduces friction and thus improves the overall durability and finished appearance of the toupee. Remy hair is available on both our men's and women's toupees and hair systems.
Remy hair or 100% human hair, is durable. Hair systems with overly processed or poor-quality hair, on the other hand, have much shorter lifespans. Human hair hair systems are also very adaptable and stylish; these toupee wigs are available in a wide range of textures, densities, and colors.
The color of the hair on the toupee hairpiece also has an effect on how long the hair system will last. Darker hair colors and straighter styles require less processing, whereas lighter hair colors and curly hair require a lot more. The level of processing that the hair toupee system has undergone will affect the lifespan of the hair system, but with proper care, the lifespan of any toupee hairpiece can be significantly extended.
In addition, synthetic toupees can last between 4 and 6 months if worn on a daily basis. Synthetic hair systems typically have a much shorter lifespan than human hair toupees due to tangling and discoloration, which can affect their resilience and overall appearance.
To ensure a safe and secure attachment, the area should be properly prepared before attempting to adhere the toupee to the scalp. If there are any adhesive remnants on the scalp, the bond with the new toupee will be weak and may even damage the hair system. If liquid adhesives is used, attaching and removing the toupee must be done with greater care. It is critical to follow the proper adhesive removal procedure to avoid damage to the scalp and toupee.
HAIR TOUPEE MAINTENANCE
It is essential to understand the importance of proper and consistent nonsurgical hair replacement maintenance that extends beyond simply attaching and removing the system. End users must understand how to properly clean and detangle their hair systems. It is simple to keep the toupee free of knots and tangles. This also makes the toupee look healthier, shinier, and more realistic for a longer period of time. We also recommend that your customers use a leave-in conditioner on their hair system on a regular basis. This will keep the hair system from becoming dull and worn out.
GENERAL TIP TO EXTEND THE LIFE SPAN OF A TOUPEE
These are our tips for extending the life of a toupee.
Because a human hair wig does not receive oils and vitamins from the scalp like natural hair, regular maintenance is required to keep the hair system looking and feeling great. These will be extremely beneficial for both you and your clients to follow in order to get the most out of their toupee:
Avoid the Sun: The sun emits harmful radiation that can damage toupee hair. The sun can cause the green pigment in hair to fade, turning it red or orange. Because we use 100 percent natural human hair in our men's hair replacement systems, the hair is susceptible to the damaging effects of the sun's rays. When going out on hot and sunny days, your customers should always wear a hat and avoid spending long periods of time in the sun. Furthermore, if the toupee wearer intends to swim in a chlorinated pool, it is recommended that they completely cover the men's hair replacement system as chlorine can be very damaging to the hair.
Proper Shampooing and Scalp Cleansing: If you want a toupee to last longer, you should shampoo it at least twice a week. Sulfate-containing shampoos should be avoided. Shampoos containing sulfates irritate the scalp and strip the hair, reducing shine and color. Using a sulfate-based shampoo will leave the real hair toupee limp and dull. Using a toupee-friendly shampoo will keep the hair looking shinier, healthier, and more realistic for a longer period of time. Shampooing the hair also keeps it smelling fresh and vibrant. It is recommended that the toupee be cleaned every three days to allow your customers to keep the hair for a longer period of time. The toupee should be removed so that the scalp can be properly cleansed, reducing dust and oil buildup.
Untangling Hair Systems: Because hair toupee systems are prone to tangling, it is critical that your customers understand how to properly detangle their hair system in order to extend its lifespan. We recommend that your clients brush their hair systems with a hairpiece for men friendly hairbrush or comb on a regular basis and use a high-quality leave-in conditioner. Sleeping with a silk pillowcase is also highly recommended. This will keep the toupee from tangling in the first place by reducing friction while the end user is sleeping.
Hair Dyeing or Coloring: The human hair used on our high-quality toupees provides a truly phenomenal and undetectable finished look to the end user. Natural hair, on the other hand, can begin to lose its color over time as a result of overexposure to heat, dirt, and other stressors.Thus, we do not recommend you to dye or color the hair of your toupee.
Avoid Heat: Toupees are especially sensitive to heat from hair styling tools like hair dryers, curling irons, and straighteners. We advise your customers to only use hair products designed specifically for hair systems. When using hairdryers or heated styling tools, it is critical to use the "cool" setting and nothing hotter. Hair toupees should never be used with alcohol-based gels or sprays. In fact, it is best to style the toupee when the men's hair replacement system is slightly damp to prevent the hair from becoming overly brittle or damaged from over-styling.
Clearly, a variety of factors influence the overall lifespan of a hair toupee. While human hair toupees last longer than synthetic hair toupees, proper hair system maintenance and care tips must be followed to ensure the toupee looks undetectable for longer and the system's integrity is maintained.
