Do you know how many hairs are falling from your head on a daily basis? It comes around to 100 or 150 a day, this is all about your natural hair and the same happens to be with the hairpieces.
Hair shedding is nothing but the hair fall that takes place in natural hair as well as in hairpieces, there is no MATHS in understanding shedding, the only problem it creates when the shedding becomes excessive and frequent.

We at IHS hair replacement know that shedding occurs as hair strands reach the verge of their lifespan. This is a regular occurrence and should not be the cause for concern.

Also, shedding depends on quality, use and maintenance. A little less shedding is normal exactly the way your biological shedding is! But, but shedding also relies greatly on its quality, such as an inferior or lower quality hair piece will lead towards excessive shedding.
On the other side, Shedding can be the outcome bad or a rough usage and maintenance of hairpieces.
See, let us understand this in a creative manner :
You have bought a fancy villa it is well furnished, greatly decorated and is aesthetically appealing, you started living in there enjoyed every bit of it and did some memorable things that will make you smile everytime you remember those times, BUT, you never cleaned that space, you never took care of it and now it started looking dull already, what do you think how it will make you feel? Guilty right?
Exactly this is the thing with your hairpieces, you need to take care of them, nurture them to keep them in the state of excellence so that they will make you smile every time you flaunt them proudly.
To put things in a simpler form, the more you tug your hairpieces the more you will experience shedding, so be gentle and extra careful with the hairpieces and you are all set, flaunt your hairpieces and slay the confidence in you.
