Taking Care of Your Hair Replacement: What You Need to Know (Part 1)

One of the fastest and most effective ways to get your hair back and feel confident with yourself again is acquiring a hair replacement. Hundreds of thousands of men and women have been using them for decades, and nowadays technology is so advanced that you couldn’t tell! This is because companies like us here at KSL and our teams of hair restoration specialists at our Birmingham hair loss clinic, Kent hair clinic and Manchester hair clinic offer the best looking hair replacements in the industry.

Once you have acquired yours, you will notice an immediate improvement of your quality of life. However, you may also be wondering what sort of specific care you should give to your new locks. And you are right, because hair replacements demand their own specific treatments to stay as healthy and stunning as the first day they were applied.

  1. Protection against the Sun

You notice the sun more in the summer, but this is a recommendation you should take all year, really. The sun’s UV rays can oxidise your hair replacement, turning it red or orange as a result. To avoid this, you should purchase specific products that will block the UV rays making your hair replacement last considerably longer.

  1. Preventing Hair Loss

One of the best tricks to avoid hair loss is to have it properly hydrated most of the time. To obtain this, apply leave-in conditioner every other day. These kinds of products are full of nutrients that will quickly enhance the healthy appearance of your hair replacement. They are also a better alternative to the traditional rinse-out conditioners.

Night-time is also a critical moment for your hair replacement as that is when it gets more tangled. To keep those uncomfortable knots to a bare minimum, sleep on a softer pillow case, like satin.

Finally, learning how to properly comb your hair replacement will reduce your hair loss significantly. Think about getting a de-tangler before actually brushing it. You will immediately notice the difference!

  1.  Keeping Hair Soft

One of the main concerns of anyone acquiring a hair replacement is to make sure it looks healthy all the time. The first rule to keep your hair as soft as possible is to avoid shampooing it in excess – you really shouldn’t do it more than twice a week.

You should also avoid excessive exposure of your hair to damaging agents such as chlorine. This doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a good swim in the pool– but if you do it very frequently your hair replacement will deteriorate more quickly.

Thinking about getting a hair replacement or FUE beard transplant? Here at KSL we have decades of expertise working with them. The secret for the outstanding quality of each of our hair replacements is that we tailor them specifically for each client to make them virtually undetectable. We use an invisible medical grade adhesive that will hold your hair replacement for weeks requiring no maintenance from your part on this side – so you can just enjoy the benefits of having your loved hair back.
