Which Hair Replacement option is Right for me?

So far in our series of blog posts on hair replacement we have talked about what is hair replacement, as well as surgical vs non-surgical hair replacement. Hopefully by now you have gained a better understanding of this somewhat broad topic; however you may still be wondering - which hair replacement option is right for me? Well we'll be looking at that very question in today's post, but keep in mind this is just a rough guide - the best thing to do is come in and meet with one of our qualified hair replacement specialists who can assess your hair and find the best hair replacement option for you!

I have thinning hair

Topette Crown Extensions

Topette Crown Extensions are a fantastic hair replacement option for female hair loss; particularly thinning hair through your part. This form of hair replacement is perfect because it adds hair where you need it most! Without the damaging effect that regular hair extensions can have on your hair.

I have a receding hair line

Hair Transplant Surgery

Surgical hair replacement is a great option for the right candidate as it can have a significant impact on the person's hair and confidence! This option often suits men with receding hair lines, who are experiencing hair loss at the front of their scalp. This form of hair replacement requires you to have enough good hair left that then becomes the 'donor hair' so is most appropriate for less extensive to moderate thinning hair.

I have bald patches

Sensigraft Hair Technology

Sensigraft is a non-surgical grafting hair replacement system suited to both men and women with moderate to severe hair loss; particularly those who have lost patches of hair on their scalp. Sensigraft successfully bridges the gap between surgical and more conventional types of hair replacement.

I have lost all my hair

Human Hair Wigs

If you are experiencing severe or total hair loss then a human hair wig is the perfect hair replacement solution when instant results are required. The appeal of human hair wigs lies in their beautiful, natural looking appearance as well as secure comfort and breathability.

Hair Loss Treatments Sydneysiders Should be wary of

Has your hairdresser ever suggested you try a miracle hair loss treatment? Have you seen pills or products advertised on television or the internet promising to stop hair loss, regrow hair or even reverse baldness? There are many great hair loss treatments Sydney has to offer for people experiencing hair loss and thinning hair; but unfortunately there are also a number of fake or misleading hair loss treatments Sydneysiders should watch out for.

These so called 'hair loss treatments' promise a lot, and often take advantage of vulnerable hair loss sufferers, while delivering very little on their promise. You have to wonder where all these so called hair loss cures come from. After all, there are very few FDA approved hair loss treatments in Sydney or anywhere for that matter. Keep reading to find out which hair loss treatments to be cautious of as well as legitimate hair loss treatments in Sydney.

Hair Loss Treatment Brushes

One hair loss treatment myth is that hair growth can occur through scalp stimulation. This is why we see a variety of products such as hair loss treatment brushes, massagers and magnets on the market, claiming to cure hair loss. While there are legitimate medical treatments to stimulate hair follicle and improve blood circulation, there is no proof to support the claim that this can be achieved by using a hair loss treatment brush or anything similar.

Herbal Hair Loss Treatment Supplements

Good nutrition and certain supplements can improve hair quality, but herbal supplements are not an approved hair loss treatment so it is important to keep realistic expectations. A vitamin isn't going to stop hereditary hair loss or regrow hair on the scalp where the hair follicle has already died; they can however create a shinier appearance and improve overall hair quality.

Surgical Hair Loss Treatments from Unqualified 'Beauty Doctors'

Hair transplants can make a significant impact the appearance of a person's scalp and give them a whole new lease on life. However it is absolutely pivotal that surgical hair loss treatments are carried out by skilled professionals, otherwise these procedures can result in scarring or infection. Make sure you research carefully the legitimacy of the person or practice carrying out your hair transplant.

FDA Approved Hair Loss Treatment in Sydney

The iGrow Laser Hair Therapy System is a safe and effective hair loss treatment cleared by the FDA. The iGrow Laser is clinically proven to stimulate hair regrowth using low level laser therapy (LLLT) and has been confirmed as an effective hair loss treatment for both men and women. Purchase your iGrow Laser today by clicking here.

In our previous blog post on human hair wigs, we discussed a few important things to take into consideration when choosing your human hair wig. One thing we didn't discuss however is why you should choose Transitions Hair when looking to purchase a human hair wig.

Not Like Your Average Wig Shop

Here at Transitions Hair we're not like an ordinary wig shop. When you walk in you won't find the walls lined with human hair wigs on mannequin heads, while you sit in the middle of the shop trying them on for all to see. Rather, you will be taken into a private consultation room with one of our human hair wig consultants and talk through exactly what you are looking for over a cup of tea or coffee. You will be shown a variety of human hair wigs to choose from, without the overwhelming nature of them being on display around you. You will be able to try on as many human hair wigs as you like and ask as many questions as you want along the way. Your consultant will guide you through this process; listen to your desires and advise you on how to ensure your new human hair wig will be right for you.

Choosing Your Human Hair Wig

During the consultation, you will need to decide whether you would like custom made or a pre-designed human hair wig. This will affect the next of the process. If you choose a custom made human hair wig then we will then measure the exact curvature of your scalp, creating a wig that fits the shape of your head. Alternatively, if you choose to purchase a pre-designed human hair wig, we will then ensure that it fits you correctly.

Styling Your Human Hair Wig

Once you have chosen your human hair wig, particularly if you choose the pre-designed option, you will find that due to your unique facial features as well as individual preference, it will rarely look exactly how you would like it do. That is why we will spend a couple of hours with you cutting and styling your new hair to make sure you walk away looking, and feeling great!

Surgical vs Non-Surgical Hair Replacement

Hair replacement covers a variety of solution for those experiencing hair loss or thinning hair. However as we discovered in our previous hair replacement post this broad term can be dived into two categories - surgical and non-surgical hair replacement. Today we will be comparing these two types of hair replacement to hopefully give you a better understanding of what they encompass.

Surgical Hair Replacement

Surgical hair replacement, also known as hair transplant surgery, is a cosmetic procedure performed under local anaesthetic to treat hair loss. Various techniques are available for this form of hair replacement, but all hair transplants involve taking skin from an area of the scalp unaffected by hair loss (donor site) and grafting these pieces of skin onto thinning or balding areas of the scalp. For the right candidate, this form of hair replacement can make a significant impact on a person's appearance and confidence.

Things to consider before undergoing surgical hair replacement

  • Do you have a realistic expectation? If you start off with very little hair, a hair transplant will not give you a full head of hair.
  • Do you have enough donor hair? This hair replacement option is only appropriate for those with suitable hair remaining to become the donor site.
  • Hair transplants are not a cure - male pattern baldness is a progressive condition so even after surgery you may continue to experience hair loss.

Non-Surgical Hair Replacement

Non-surgical hair replacement can incorporate a variety of different hair loss solutions; however the main options, and our most popular, are Wigs, Crown Extensions and Sensigrafts.

Wigs

Wigs are the perfect hair replacement option when experiencing severe or complete hair loss. They offer a full head of hair instantly so are great when an immediate result is required. They are also ideal for women who are about to undergo medical treatment such as chemotherapy or radiation treatment.

Topette Crown Extensions

Crown extensions are a great form of hair replacement that will add extra hair where you need it most. Creating volume and fullness and the crown of your head; with the security of knowing your Topette crown extension will stay securely in place.

Sensigraft

Sensigraft hair technology successfully bridges the gap between surgical hair replacement procedures and traditional hair replacement options with this innovative solution for hair loss. Using a non-surgical, transdermal graft, Sensigraft is fused to the scalp using a medical grade adhesive so that all you can see is the appearance of hair emerging from the scalp.

Are there Different Types of Human Hair Wigs?

human hair wigs

So we've already established that human hair wigs are the best option, particularly when suffering from hair loss; but there are still a number of things to consider when choosing your human hair wig. Here are some of the most important differences in human hair wigs to understand when choosing the right wig for you.

Types of Hair used in Human Hair Wigs

There are typically four basic types of hair used in human hair wigs: Chinese, Indonesian, Indian and European. Human hair wigs are predominantly made from Asian hair. Chinese hair has a thicker denier (unit of fineness) which results in the hair being extremely straight; due to this resistance, these human hair wigs may be harder to style. Indonesian hair is more readily available and is therefore less costly - it can often be found in ethnic style wigs. Indian hair has thinner denier, somewhat similar to European hair but with a bit more texture. European human hair wigs are the most sought after due to the fine denier for European hair. However it is in increasingly limited supply in the marketplace, therefore it is more expensive. Beware of imposters with suspiciously low-priced "European Human Hair Wigs'.

European Human Hair Wigs

Here at Transitions Hair, our most sought after human hair wigs are made from European Hair because of their unparalleled quality and integrity; allowing our clients to style them as you would your own hair (blow dry, hot roller, hair straightener, etc), giving you complete control over your look and style. The result - silky, beautiful, soft hair that falls naturally, feels like real hair and best of all, is undetectable.

Custom-made and Pre-designed Human Hair Wigs

The origin of the hair is not the only factor, however; you also need to decide whether you want a custom-made or a pre-designed human hair wig. Custom-made wigs involve creating a head mould of the precise curvature of your scalp in order to create a wig that fits you perfectly. Hair type, hair colour, and lifestyle are all taken into consideration when creating your new hair.

Our pre-designed human hair wigs are our most popular option as they allow you to have the hair you want instantly. These human hair wigs can be customised to complement your unique face shape, facial features, and head size, giving you the most natural result possible. Pre-designed human hair wigs are available in five different sizes (XXS to L), various hair lengths and a range of beautiful colours to create the natural look of a full head of hair.

Why are Human Hair Wigs Better than Synthetic Wigs?

real human hair wigs

One of the biggest considerations in choosing a wig is whether you want to go natural or synthetic. With technological advances, synthetic hair has come a long way in recent years and the synthetic fibers used in making wigs today look far more realistic than in previous generations, but they can still look far from natural. The most appealing aspect to synthetic hair is it can often be worn right out of the box with little or no styling. This is great for dress up parties or just wanting the mix it up a little, but when it comes to hair loss, human hair wigs are by far the superior choice, for the reasons outlined below.

While synthetic hair may offer ease of use, it lacks a certain versatility that only comes with human hair wigs. It cannot be styled to look many different ways like a human hair wig and even rare heat friendly synthetic hair wigs can be difficult to style as synthetic fibre is more resistant to change. Synthetic hair wigs are also less durable than human hair wigs. With proper care you can expect synthetic hair wigs and hairpieces to only last about 4-6 months and heat friendly synthetic hair only 2- 3 months.

Human Hair Wigs will provide the most natural look and feel

Human hair wigs are remarkably soft with a shine and movement that is not easily duplicated in synthetic hair. Human hair wigs can be cut and styled to suit your personal tastes. And while it can be a more expensive option, with the proper care, it is also more durable, meaning it is an investment that will restore you hair, and your confidence!

Advantages of Human Hair Wigs:

  • More realistic appearance than a synthetic wig
  • Same styling and maintenance as your natural hair
  • Can be custom-coloured to desired colour
  • Greater durability than a synthetic wig
  • Can endure heat from styling tools

How do I purchase a Human Hair Wig?

There are a few different types of human hair wigs, (a topic which we will discuss in a later post!) but the best thing to do is come in for a free, no obligation consultation with one of our human hair wig specialists to try on the wigs for yourself in order to determine what's best for you.

What is Hair Replacement?

Hair replacement offers solutions for both men and women who are experiencing hair loss. But what exactly is hair replacement? We'll be talking a fair bit about hair replacement in the coming weeks and will hopefully answer all your questions about this often very broad term. Hair replacement encompasses a variety of different hair loss solutions and has been around for centuries. Hair replacement can come in many forms from wigs, crown extensions, top pieces, hair transplants and non-surgical grafting. Nowadays, hair replacement can be divided into two categories: surgical and non-surgical; which we will compare in future posts.

History of Hair Replacement

The pages of history are dotted with tales of baldness, hair loss and thinning hair. As such over the years hundreds of cures and cover ups have been invented in an attempt to restore hair to its former glory.

Hair replacement techniques date bate to the use of wigs in Ancient Egypt. The earliest Egyptian wigs were made from human hair, but cheaper alternatives such as palm leaf fibres and wool were very commonly used. However they were not used as a form of hair replacement as such; rather they represented rank, social status and religious piety and were used as protection against the sun.

The seventeenth century saw the complete resurgence of the wig and it became the height of fashion for both men and women. The ascendance of Louis XIV to the French throne was a pivotal moment in the history of hair replacement as the King supplemented his thinning hair with false pieces. Eventually Louis XIV opted for shaving the little hair he had left and wore a full wig instead. Courtiers and other aristocrats immediately copied the King. They sported wigs, and the style trickled down to the upper-middle class; and with that, Europe's newest fad was born.

Hair Replacement in the Present Day

With technological advances, the hair replacement industry in the modern day has boomed, with innovative ways to replace and restore hair constantly developing. As mentioned earlier, the two main categories that hair replacement can be divided into are surgical and non-surgical. Transitions Hair offers superior solutions in both these categories as well as other hair restoration solutions.

Understanding Alopecia

Whether you, a friend, a family member, or just someone you know has alopecia, there are a few important things to know about this little known conditions. Firstly, there are many different types of alopecia, some that are caused by external factors, and some that are caused by genetic or internal factors - especially in the case of women. For most men, hair loss is not an indication of illness, but for women, it can be, making it extremely important for you to seek professional medical advice if you begin to experience any unusual hair loss.

The most common type of alopecia in both men and women is androgenetic alopecia, followed by alopecia areata. Women with androgenetic alopecia usually experience a gradual thinning of the part line and eventually hair loss or thinning at the crown of the head.

Causes of Androgenetic Alopecia

  • Genetic factors
  • Endocrine conditions
  • Androgen-secreting tumours
  • Unusual androgen activity or production

What to expect if you're suffering from Androgenetic Alopecia

Both men and women will experience a thinning of the hair, and in some cases eventual baldness or complete loss of hair.

Androgenetic Alopecia in Women

Unlike androgenetic alopecia in men, women's hairlines rarely recede and complete hair loss does not normally occur. However this gradual thinning can become extremely noticeable and can cause a great deal of emotional and physical insecurity. It is important for those experiencing these effects to reach out for help, such as getting in touch with the wide range of therapy that is available or joining a support group with others who are suffering from alopecia.

It is pivotal that women address the issue of unexplained hair loss as there could be other medical problems associated with the hair loss, including:

  • Hormonal or chemical imbalances in your body
  • Cancer
  • Anorexia or other eating disorders
  • Anaemia or low iron levels
  • Vitamin or mineral deficiencies
  • Thyroid disease
  • Polycystic ovarian syndrome

For information regarding hair loss solutions for women with alopecia, consult Transitions Hair for Women. For men suffering from alopecia, balding or thinning hair, check out our great range of hair loss solutions for men.
