While baldness has been plaguing men for years, with all of the natural looking hair pieces available on the market today, there is no reason why you have to relegate yourself to living under a hat to hide your beautiful bald pate. Regardless for the reason behind your baldness or even the level of baldness you are experiencing, there are hairpiece solutions that can help you rebuild your confidence and have you stepping out in style.
When choosing a men’s hairpiece, it is important to know that today’s hairpiece bases, or the area where the hairs are sewn in and the material that will be touching your scalp directly, are manufactured from three materials: polyurethane, lace and nylon. There are pros and cons to using hairpieces with each type of base.
Hairpieces that use polyurethane as a base have the most natural skin-like feel. Polyurethane bases come in a variety of thicknesses however, the thinner the polyurethane base, the more natural the piece feels on your head. What’s even better is that thin polyurethane bases are completely transparent and offer a very lifelike material to sew the hairs into in order to provide a very natural looking result. Unfortunately, this base isn’t very breathable and can become quite hot, so men that exercise often may benefit from using a hairpiece with a different base. They are generally attached with adhesive in order to form a second layer of skin.
Lace is a very comfortable, lightweight, and breathable hairpiece base material. There are a couple of variations of lace that is used, but all they provide you with a comfortable, natural looking hairpiece option. The main drawback to lace is its delicacy. They are not designed to stand up to harsh handling or heavy washing. They can be attached to the head with lace tape or a special type of adhesive.
Nylon offers more durability than lace and more breathability than polyurethane. They work well for active men and those who plan to use their hairpiece daily and don’t want to have to worry about harming the hairpiece. This is a more utility type of hairpiece and doesn’t have as natural of a look or feel as polyurethane or lace, but it is one of the least expensive versions available. The piece is attached using clips, tape, adhesive or a combination of the three.
