When it comes to hair restoration solutions, a Hair System is one of the most effective non-surgical options out there. Modern developments in the construction techniques and materials used for Hair Systems mean that they have never been more sophisticated and accessible. It is not surprising that they have experienced a surge in popularity, considering the unparalleled realism and comfort they offer.
Although they are incredibly straightforward and convenient to apply and maintain, there are still some things you can do to ensure that your experience is as seamless and as enjoyable as possible. The importance of skin care cannot be emphasized enough because the healthier your scalp is, the more enjoyable your overall Hair System journey will be.
Why A Healthy Scalp Is So Important
Essentially, your scalp comprises the foundation of your Hair System. The condition of your scalp will therefore determine how your Hair System feels as well as its longevity and durability. Generally speaking, everyone should be ensuring that their scalp is as nourished and as healthy as possible, but this becomes even more necessary if you are wearing a Hair System.
Without sufficient preparation and protection, your skin could become dry and irritated because of the adhesives used to attach a Hair System. Fortunately, resolving this problem couldn’t be easier. With some simple steps, you can protect your scalp from any damage and discomfort while wearing a Hair System. A healthy scalp will also ensure that your Hair System adheres closely to the surface of your skin so that it looks as natural and as realistic as possible.
Removing The Adhesive
When changing or replacing your Hair System, you must remove the old adhesive before applying anything else to your scalp. It is always recommended that you use a quality adhesive removal product that has been formulated specifically for this purpose. This way, you can safely and painlessly remove your Hair System and the adhesive underneath the Hair System as well as from your own hair and scalp.
Typically, these adhesive removers have an alcohol or citric oil base usually applied as a liquid or a spray. Alcohol-based removers can have a drying effect, so if that is of any concern to you, then you may want to opt for a citric oil base instead.
Thoroughly Clean The Scalp
Whenever you remove your Hair System, it is strongly advised that you thoroughly clean your scalp before applying another system. Once you have removed all traces of the adhesive, you should then cleanse and rinse your scalp with a gentle shampoo in order to release any build-up, such as oils and dead skin cells. Following this, you should use a skin scrub to massage your scalp carefully, which will dislodge any dead skin cells that the shampoo didn’t wash away. By doing this, you can prolong the longevity of the adhesive used for your Hair System and ensure that it remains firmly attached to your scalp.
Moisturising The Skin
Ensuring that your skin is sufficiently moisturized has always been an essential part of skincare, and your scalp is undoubtedly no exception. While the adhesive remover, shampoo, and scrub are all required to prepare your scalp for a Hair System, restoring the oils that were stripped away during this cleaning process will also be necessary.
Our skin produces oils in order to protect and hydrate itself, which is why we recommend that you apply a facial moisturizer to your scalp after you have washed it. If you have sensitive skin, you should opt for a fragrance-free and paraben-free moisturizer that won’t cause any irritation. Upon applying the moisturizer, wait until it has completely absorbed before putting on a Hair System.
Don’t Forget Exfoliation
In skin care, exfoliation is the removal of dead skin cells with a grainy substance. While your skin usually sheds dead skin cells every thirty days to make room for new ones, there are times when dead skin cells won’t clear completely. These cells will then build up on your skin, resulting in patches of skin that are dry and flaky, as well as clogged and irritated pores.
When wearing a Hair System, it is unlikely that dead skin cells will shed as effectively because your scalp is being covered by the adhesive and the Hair System itself. This will result in the accumulation of dead skin cells, and the glue may begin to weaken, and your scalp could start itching. We, therefore, advise that you exfoliate your scalp once a week, using a gentle facial scrub or an exfoliating cleanser.
Perfecting Your Skincare Routine
Many advantages are associated with maintaining your scalp while wearing a hair system. First and foremost, you can ensure that your scalp is healthy and nourished so that you don’t have to suffer from any itching, irritation, dryness, or damage. What’s more, by taking care of your skin, you will also be prolonging the life of your Hair System because the more protected and prepared your scalp is, the better the adhesive will work.
When your Hair System has firmly adhered to your scalp, it will also have a more natural and realistic appearance, ensuring that you can extract the maximum possible benefits from your Hair System. There should never have to be a compromise between comfort and appearance, and with this guide, you can have the best of both worlds.
