Frequently Asked Questions
Our hair replacement product is life-changing and for that particular reason , it generates several questions, doubts, and insecurities. Whether you're discovering hair systems today on our website or if you're already familiar with them, our goal is to provide you with all the details on our products and or process to allow you to make an easy and well-informed decision.
Whilst our main Q&As below will answer some of the main and most asked questions about our products, we invite you to book a free consultation call with one of our hair replacement specials that will take the time to answer all of your questions and address your particular hair loss situation and needs.
Our premade hair systems are available to ship worldwide and will be received within 3-4 weeks after the order is processed.
Our custom made hair systems have a production time frame of 12-14 weeks.
Our product is not a hair transplant.
It's a non invasive, non-surgical, semi-permanent solution.
Using the product has no side effects and it can be removed when desired, leaving no scars or marks.
To use our product, the thinning/balding area on top of your head will have to be shaved. If your hair loss situation is partial and/or only located in the front (receding hairline) or only in the back (crown area), a surface size of minimum 4 inches square will need to be shaved to ensure solid and safe bonding of the hair system.
If your hair loss situation is located in the front and in the back, with a good area of thick hair in between, the majority of the top of your head will still need to be shaved to cover the two balding zones with the hair piece and to obtain better and more realistic results.
Our hair units can be attached to your scalp using special certified skin safe liquid adhesive or special double-sided tape. We offer these products in the maintenance products section of our shop.
The attachment can be partial or full and can be done in different ways, offering bonds that will vary in resistance according to your needs and lifestyle.
You will wear the hair system between 2 to 4 weeks on your head, depending on your lifestyle, body chemistry and location’s weather conditions as well.
Every 2 to 4 weeks, the hair system needs to be removed, the old adhesive will also need to be removed; the scalp will need to be cleaned and the hair that has regrown will need to be shaved again. The hair system will then be refitted to the scalp using fresh adhesive.
All our hair systems are made with 100% natural human hair.
Our premade units are made with A-grade virgin Indian hair and our custom units are made with superior authentic virgin Remy Indian hair.
The lifespan of our hair systems will depend on a variety of factors including the type of base material it is made of, the usage and the maintenance given to it.
Hair systems do naturally lose quality over time as the hair strands become more dry and worn looking. The frequency of the maintenance services (refits), the products used to style and maintain the hair, the exposure to the sun and the frequency of shampoos done to the hair are all factors that will make the hair strands age with time, the knots weaken and the base lose its shape and strength.
Our hair systems are all designed to last between an average of 4 to 6 months, except our special ultra-thin skin hair system which has a lifespan of 1 to 3 months due to its extremely thin and fragile base material.
All our hair systems are designed to resist sweat and water exposure. What is affected by those elements is in fact the adhesive and not the hair unit itself.
The adhesives we recommend are sweat and waterproof but they also each have limits to how much water/sweat exposure they can take before they start to break and need to be changed.

The average service/maintenance cycle is 2-4 weeks. Depending on your lifestyle and personal preferences, you may want to have a rebond maintenance service sooner than 2 weeks or later than 4 weeks however we do not recommend wearing your system more than 5-6 weeks without changing the adhesive.
A maintenance session consists in removing the hair system, cleaning and shampooing both your head and the system, shave the hair that has regrown under, then reapplying the system to your scalp using fresh adhesive.
