Are you tired of dealing with bad hair days? If you’re someone who struggles with hair loss or thinning, a hair system can be a great solution. But once you’ve invested in a hair system, it’s important to know how to properly maintain it. That’s where this ultimate tips comes in. We’ll cover everything you need to know about hair system maintenance, including cleaning, styling, and storage.

Selection and Manufacture of Hair System Materials

The durability of a hair system heavily depends on the quality of the hair, base material, and the ventilation techniques used during manufacturing
1. Base Material:
The choice of base material significantly impacts the lifespan of your hair replacement system. Different materials offer different levels of durability and natural appearance. Generally, the thinner the base material, the shorter the lifespan, especially in the case of super-thin 0.03mm skin hair systems. Base materials for hair replacement systems can be categorized into three main types: skin/poly systems, lace systems, and mono systems. Skin/poly systems have the shortest lifespan, while lace systems fall in the middle, and mono systems are known for their durability.
2. Hair Quality:
3. Ventilation Methods:
Our handcrafted hair replacement systems require intricate ventilation techniques to ensure invisible knots. However, the tiny knots used in this process are delicate and can lead to hair shedding after approximately three months. The most common cause of hair loss in hair replacement systems is due to bleached knots. The chemicals used in the bleaching process weaken the knots, making them more susceptible to hair loss.
By understanding these factors, you can make informed decisions about the base material and hair quality when choosing a hair system. Additionally, being aware of the delicate nature of the ventilation methods will help you take proper care of your hair system to minimize hair loss and maintain its lifespan.

Effective tips to maintain your hair system

1. Choosing the Right Products:
The first step in maintaining your hair system is selecting the right products. Opt for high-quality, sulfate-free shampoos and conditioners that are specifically formulated for hair systems. These gentle products will cleanse your hair system without stripping away essential oils or causing damage. Additionally, look for pH-balanced options to help maintain the natural shine and texture of your hair system.
2. Washing and Conditioning:
Regular washing and conditioning are important for maintaining a clean and fresh-looking hair system. Gently massage the shampoo into your hair, making sure to cover all areas, and rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water. Avoid aggressive rubbing or twisting, as this can lead to tangling. After shampooing, apply a suitable conditioner, focusing on the mid-lengths and ends of the hair. Leave it on for a few minutes before rinsing thoroughly.
3. Proper Drying Techniques:
When it comes to drying your hair system, it’s important to handle it with care. After washing, gently pat your hair system dry with a soft towel to remove excess moisture. Avoid rubbing or wringing the hair, as this can cause tangling or damage. Whenever possible, allow your hair system to air dry naturally. If you need to use a hairdryer, set it to a low heat setting and maintain a safe distance to prevent heat damage.
4. Brushing and Styling:
Regular brushing is essential for maintaining the appearance of your hair system. Use a wide-toothed comb or a brush with soft bristles to gently detangle the hair, starting from the ends and working your way up. Hold the base of the hair system securely to prevent pulling or strain on the hair strands. Avoid using excessive force or rough movements that could damage the system. For styling, use heat styling tools sparingly and apply a heat protectant product beforehand.
5. Nighttime Care:
Taking care of your hair system during sleep is important to prevent tangling and matting. Invest in a silk or satin pillowcase, as these materials create less friction and minimize hair breakage. Alternatively, wrap your hair system in a silk or satin scarf before bed. Consider using a sleep cap or a hair system-friendly headband to keep the hair in place and prevent rubbing against the pillow.
6. Regular Maintenance


In reality, taking the time to maintain your hair system properly can save you a significant amount of time and money. When you care for your hair system correctly, you won’t need to replace or repair it frequently.
