Factors Influencing the Shaving Decision:

The decision to shave the head before getting a hair system installation is influenced by various factors that every individual considers carefully.

1. Hair system type and its compatibility with natural hair

Most hair system’s do not need a shaved head at all as there are multiple methods available for installing and settling down the system, but at times it depends on what type of system you choose, how compatible that hair system is with your natural hairline matters, so at such times it is recommended to get in touch with professionals such as IHS hair replacement as they will guide with the best suitable suggestions ever.

2. The method of attachment and how it interacts with existing hair

3. Personal preferences for aesthetics and comfort

Shaving your head, again, depends on personal preference as well, such as if you want you can go for a shaved head before installing the hair system for that clean and better look.

Methods to attach hair system without Shaving head:

The curated list of multiple methods to attach hair system is mentioned below :

1. Hard bonding

Using this method the hair pieces such as wigs and toupees stay for the longest period of time. The duration of the hair system using this hard bond will last for straight six weeks in humid climate as well.
Hard bonding is considered to be one of the strongest and secured attachment method for nonsurgical hair replacement

2. Soft bonding

Now soft bonding is opposite to hard bonding and offers a little less strength to the hair system. No doubt the fixation with soft glue will be secured and will last upto 4 weeks.

3. Weaving

Weaving is the third option that needs your consideration and is a more intricate procedure of fixing hair to your very own existing hair through the process of tying it across the entire perimeter of the head, this type of attachment is also long lasting and offers exceptional results.
