Then, it is merged well with the already existing hair strands. The hair bonding can be customized, choose the kind of hair, texture, length and others.

This option is temporary and it requires regular maintenance.
Volumizer for Women
This is a unique, nonsurgical, semi-permanent, integrated hair replacement option. This is specifically designed for women with up to 50 per cent hair loss in the crown, and women with fine, thin, and/or damaged hair. Hair extensions can add length and thickness to a hairstyle, but they can’t address the crown of the head. It can be worn for up to five weeks before being uninstalled and reinstalled. Each hair on the system is hand-tied, to create volume on the top and to lay flat and blend in with the sides. This can be customized based on texture, and needs of the patient. It produces immediate results and requires no glue, no adhesives, and no chemicals, as it is integrated with your hair and lays flat to the head, it is totally undetectable and completely wearable night and day for up to five weeks.
Hair systems are commonly known as super wigs. These super wigs use natural hair, an invisible base, and modern techniques. This is a non-surgical hair replacement solution, which gives the user full customization from base material to hair colour, style, density, texture and length. Toupees, wigs, and hair systems are often used interchangeably. There are two types of super wigs: stock hair systems and custom-made hair systems. Stock hair systems are mass-produced keeping in mind the most common hair system wearer requirements. Custom hair systems, also known as the designer wigs are made according to an individual’s specifications. The price of custom made hair systems is usually higher than that of stock hair systems.

Benefits of hair transplant over wigs
Natural Vs Artificial Look
For many, wigs are affordable and quick idea to cover bald look, however, hair systems and wigs offer a completely unnatural look. A person who wears wigs and uses hair systems can easily be noticed and identified people. No matter how expensive hair wigs you purchase, it doesn’t offer you an unnoticeable appearance.
The basic purpose of hair transplant is to regrow your natural hair. In a hair transplant, you get your hair with the same colour and look exactly matches with existing hair. Thereby, you always get a very desirable natural look.
Permanent Vs Temporary Solution
Wearing hair wigs appear to be a good option but they are a temporary solution. You won’t be able to wear them for a lifetime. There is an additional charge of maintaining and replacing the wigs for frequent changing. On the other hand, once you undergo a hair transplant surgery then next amazing thing you would get is permanent hair restoration. In other word, you don’t have to spend money again and again as you will have restored your lost hair permanently.
Hair systems are good options for a quick result, whereas the normal hair transplants like FUE and FUT take 6 months to 1 year to show results. However, synthetic hair transplant is one of the variations in hair transplant that give instant result, unlike FUE hair transplant.
Money, Time, Preference matters in choosing the right option for hair restoration. Hair systems, wigs offer a temporary option with additional maintenance cost. And the most important part they do not offer the natural look. We would recommend hair transplant, which is time-consuming, but natural and long-lasting.
