7 Tips and Ideas to Extend the Lifespan of Your Hair System

Hair loss is one of the most common problems that people are facing today.  Stress, a bad lifestyle, and poor eating habits are all responsible for causing premature hair loss. So, if you have started to lose your hair, then you should first look to keep your stress levels down as well as modifying your diet to incorporate healthier foods. 

However, there comes a stage when non-surgical hair systems become the best option for you if your hair loss is significant. Like your own hair, hair systems also need care and attention. Proper care and attention will enable you to wear your hair system for longer so that’s why we have come up with a list of 7 tips and ideas to extend the lifespan of your hair system.


1) Hair system cleaning by brushing/combing

Brushing with the right combs is very important. Comb your hair system with a 100% soft boar bristle brush or with a large comb to avoid tangling and unnecessary tension on the knots. Here are some vital things to remember:

Comb every day to prevent tangles. This will increase the lifespan of your hair system.

Brush your hair when it is completely wet or totally dry. Something in between will not lead to thorough hair system cleaning.

Brushing should be done carefully to avoid hair root tension and damage to the hair system. 

Always comb hair upwards towards the root of the hair system.


2) Sleeping and hair system care

It's a proven fact that good sleeping habits can have a positive impact on the health of a hair system. So if your hair system has long hair then braiding your hair before going to sleep makes things even better and will enhance the lifespan of your non-surgical hair system. 

Never sleep with wet hair because if you do, the hair can get very matted and knotted. So, before going to sleep, make sure your hair system is completely dry. This too, will enhance the lifespan of your non-surgical hair system.

Consider using silk pillows while sleeping because when hair rubs on other types of pillow, the constant friction creates cuticles on the hair system and the opening up the cuticles can damage your hair.


3) Hair system care for wavy/curly hair

Everyone loves curly hair systems but maintaining them is not always an easy task. For clean and tangle-free hair, daily wash your hair with tepid water. Avoid applying alcohol-based products (styling gel, hard gel, mousses etc.) on your hair system because alcohol-based products are notorious for being too harsh. The over-use of alcohol-based products can cause major damage to natural hair as well. 

From a technical point of view, alcohol products dry the hair system and create complex tangles which lead to hair system damage. Nobody wants that, especially with wavy hair. 


4) Dryness and hair system care tips

Apply pure olive oil on the hair two or three times a week. This will help you overcome dryness and give a natural feel to your hair. Apply and leave olive oil on the ends of the hair overnight to prevent hair dryness. This will enhance the life of your non-surgical hair system.

Never use too much hair conditioner because it can swell the hair, causing
the cuticle layers to remain open. We recommend that you apply hair conditioner first onto your palms and fingertips and then apply it on the hair to make sure that you are applying conditioner away from the roots of the hair system.


5) Be aware of chlorine and salt water

It is perfectly fine for you to go swimming in your hair system, be that in a swimming pool or in the sea. However, chlorine and salt water can cause damage to your hair system because salt and chlorine have harmful properties for your hair. If you are worried about it, then think about swimming in a swimming cap. 


6) Keep your hair system chemical-free

There are certain chemicals which are no good at all for hair such as hydrogen peroxide. Save your hair system from chemical treatment because it may lead to irreparable damage to your hair system. It will dry out your hair and increase the chances of tangling which won’t be easy to resolve. 

Chemicals such as ammonia and hydrogen peroxide work by breaking the outer cuticles around the hair shaft and bleaching out the natural colour respectively, which allows chemical reactions to take place. Don’t use chemicals. 


7) Showering tips for hair system health

Modern hair systems are gaining global acceptance because there is no need to remove them every night and wear them every morning. They can be worn for weeks at a time if the climate is cool and pleasant. While showering with your hair system is perfectly fine, ideally you should be avoiding showers fixed to the wall. Go for shower heads since they are more hair-system-friendly. 

Also stay away from shampoos meant for oily hair. Go for the ones that are meant for dry, coloured or chemically treated hair.

May the force be with your hair system! 




Thinning of non-surgical hair systems is common and completely preventable. All you have to do is follow the above tips and you will increase the lifespan of your hair system.

Whilst these tips are applicable for any hair system, they are particularly relevant if your hair system has long hair, like a women’s hair system, for example. Short hair i.e. like hair found on most men’s hair systems is much easier to maintain.

Masturbation and hair loss in men

As you continue to age, the body decreases its production of important neuro-chemicals. On the other hand Masturbation limits the endocrine system which controls the release of such hormones.  With excessive masturbation, the body can go through accelerated damage to the tissue cells and organs. Men who keep masturbating excessively will eventually reach an exhausted state in which their bodies produce more inflammatory hormones and proteins, including prostaglandin E2 and DHT. These in turn might be the cause of pain and hair loss.
