There is no denying the significance that hair holds, for men as much as women. For thousands of years hair has been associated with youthfulness and health. Whilst hair doesn’t necessarily have a crucial biological function, it does have a massive impact on an individual’s perception of themselves as well as their overall confidence and self-esteem. It doesn’t seem fair, therefore, that more than half of men will experience balding by the time they have reached fifty years of age. Of course, premature hair loss can happen even earlier than that.
For a long time, the dominant discourse surrounding male hair loss has been that it is an inevitable part of ageing, and that the only option is to accept it. Nothing could be further from the truth, because the reality is that there are so many options out there for you to consider. The men’s haircare market is experiencing a revival, and this is something that has been seriously overdue. We’re delighted to be at the forefront of the creation of non-invasive and non-surgical solutions for male hair loss, and our Afro Hair Systems are a pioneering and exciting development in the hair restoration industry.
Understanding Your Hair Type
Compared to Caucasian and Asian hair, the hair follicles of Afro hair are completely differently shaped. These follicles have a much more elliptical structure, which contributes to the coiled or spiraled curls which characterize this hair type. It is for this reason that Afro hair is more prone to experiencing breakage than Caucasian and Asian hair due to its high porosity and low moisture.
The American Hair Loss Association states that hair loss in men is almost always caused by androgenetic alopecia, and this applies to a shocking 95 percent of cases. Unfortunately, this is an inherited trait which results in the characteristic receding hairline and thinning crown. What’s more, it has been found that this happens because of a genetic reaction to a product of testosterone which is known as dihydrotestosterone.
If you have Afro hair, however, then the effects of this androgenetic alopecia have a higher likelihood of being exacerbated by other forms of hair loss. This can be attributed to the inherent fragility of this hair type, especially if you wear your hair in tightly braided styles such as cornrows and box braids.
What Are Afro Hair Systems?
A hair system is created from human and/or synthetic hair that is woven into a material base, and it is adhered onto your scalp with either glue or tape. Before purchasing a hair system, however, it is essential that you understand your hair type so that you can invest in the most effective solution for you. As the name implies, our Afro Hair Systems have been especially created for those with Afro hair, namely because this hair type has several unique properties which have to be accommodated.
Relatively recently, male hair systems have received massive amounts of interest as an alternative way to address hair loss. More traditional solutions for hair loss include approved medications such as minoxidil and finasteride, as well as various procedures such as laser treatments and hair transplants. These solutions may not work for everyone, and for personal reasons you might not want to consume or apply a medication or undergo a surgical procedure in the first place. In this scenario, a hair system is a brilliantly convenient and effective alternative.

Unparalleled Longevity and Performance
In many respects, our hair is an extension of who we are. The way we choose to adjust our personal appearance and present ourselves is an essential aspect of our individuality and identity – and our hair is an important part of this. With our hair systems, our priority is to ensure that they are as realistic and as comfortable as possible. In order to achieve this with our Afro Hair Systems, we have left no stone unturned when it comes to creating natural, flowing and dynamic curls.
Moreover, we can accommodate a selection of waves and curl styles so that you can present yourself and tailor your appearance however you want to. For example, you can select the color of the hair itself, as well as the density of the hair system and the length of the curls and waves themselves. You can decide whether you want a loose wave or a tight curl pattern, measured by millimeter. The smaller the millimeter measurement, the tighter the curl will be.
With a breathable base, you will barely notice the hair system whilst you are wearing it. The invisible knots and the natural hairline, on the other hand, means that it will be imperceptible to everyone else as well.
Tailored To You
With state-of-the-art equipment, innovative techniques and outstanding materials, our Afro Hair Systems are unrivalled as a sophisticated hair restoration solution. The exceptional craftsmanship means that they are incredibly realistic without there being any compromise with regards to comfort. Considering just how much this hair system will transform your appearance and confidence, it is a more than worthwhile investment, and with some due maintenance you can ensure that it lasts for as long as possible.
The bases which are available for Afro Hair Systems are more or less the same as the hair system bases for other hair types. What differentiates Afro Hair Systems are the chemical processes which are required to produce the various curl and wave patterns that are available. Since the structure and texture of Afro hair is so unique, the chemical processes are quite intensive. Inevitably, the hair will be stripped and dried out during this step, which is why we always pre-treat your hair system to lock in moisture and nutrients.
Maintaining Your Hair System
For a lustrous feel and appearance, it is essential that you maintain your Afro Hair System as you would maintain your Afro hair. The importance of natural and nourishing hair products such as conditioners, serums, and treatments cannot be emphasized enough. We’re passionate about not only creating hair systems, but also products which our customers can use to keep their hair systems healthy.
This is where YOURS™ comes in, our range of healing and nurturing haircare products. Infused with coconut oil, argon oil, chia and keratin, our nutritious and restorative formulas will ensure that your hair system remains in the perfect condition.
Your Hair Matters
We believe that there should never have to be a compromise between your comfort and convenience and the hair you have always wanted. There’s no denying it, losing your hair can be as upsetting as it is confusing, and there is frustratingly little dialogue when it comes to discussing men’s hair systems as a reliable and effective option.
The way we choose to present and style ourselves is essentially an extension of who we are, and our hair is an integral part of this. One of the reasons that losing your hair is such an unsettling experience is because it prevents you from expressing yourself how you want to. This is why a men’s hair system is such an empowering alternative, because it enables you to take back control over your hair and your physical appearance.
An Afro Hair System is an incredible and pioneering hair restoration solution, and we are committed to ensuring that everyone can access high-quality and long-lasting hair systems because we understand just how much your hair matters to you.
