Your Cost Guide to Hair Replacement

Hair replacement systems offer a safe, fast and effective solution to covering hair loss and giving you confidence in your appearance. Shopping for your hair replacement system can be an exciting experience, however as a valuable investment and with many systems available, you may be uncertain about the costs involved. Here are the main cost factors to consider when purchasing the best hair replacement system for your needs:

1

Human or synthetic hair?

Human or synthetic hair?

The materials used will really affect the cost of your hair system. Synthetic hair will usually be less expensive than human hair pieces and can require less maintenance, however the quality of human hair is generally superior and it can be styled with heat like normal hair. Going for a tailored, human hair system, will provide you with a highly natural appearance and feel, however these systems are priced according to your individual requirements. Additionally there are different membrane materials to affix the system to your scalp, which will also affect the cost of hair replacement. The most common forms of membrane are monofilament, polyurethane and lace, which all offer different advantages. See our FAQs page for more information.

Extent of coverage

Extent of coverage

Hair replacement systems are suitable to conceal the effects of hair loss regardless of its extent or cause. For those that need more coverage, the cost of replacement may be more expensive, though there are factors which will change this depending on whether you’d like to replicate your hair’s natural appearance:

  • The density of the replacement hair
  • The hair’s calibre, including the level of kinks or curls
  • Your hair colour and gradation

Additional Hair

Additional Hair

Hair replacement systems are a great option for people who like to experiment with new hair styles and give you freedom to try out new looks. An option can be for you to extend the length of your natural hair with a longer hair system, however this too will affect its cost.

Buying a back-up

It’s advised that you purchase two hair systems, so that you can extend the life of your main unit. This also gives you more flexibility to regularly update your appearance.

5

Maintenance

Maintenance

Hair replacement systems need regular maintenance to help extend their life and keep your hair looking its best. Again this will vary per individual, though you’ll need to regularly clean your system with the right products, and replace damage hairs when required. There are a range of cost-effective maintenance products available, however you may need to spend more on maintenance depending on how well you care for the hair and how often you’d like to restyle it.

6

Your hair system provider

Although there may be discount online retailers who provide cheap off-the-shelf hair pieces, these won’t always be of the best quality and may not offer the natural look and feel that will give you the most confidence in your new hair. Opting for a specialist hair system provider that can create a bespoke, hand-made hair piece for you may be more expensive, however the quality will be much higher and will afford you a longer-lasting, better looking solution. Ultimately it comes down to what you want from your hair piece and whether you’ll be happy to wear it on a daily basis.
