Wigs or hairpieces to disguise baldness
Hair systems, publicly known as wigs or detachable hairpieces, offer a solution for baldness free from side effects and pre-surgical anaesthesia.
However, hair systems continue to be seen by some people as an object of discussion and mockery. Therefore, many users fear being "discovered".
Hair systems can also lead to problems of hygiene due to the adhesives used for their placement, which sometimes prevent the skin from breathing and lead to unpleasant odours.
They require constant maintenance and clients have to visit the clinic every 2-4 weeks for a check, during which the hair system is removed, the scalp is cleaned and the hair is cut, etc.
All this can lead to suffering and anxiety in the user of the "hair system" and in some cases it can cause lack of self confidence.
There are many advantages and disadvantages associated with the use of hair systems. However, it is important to highlight that the pros and cons do not apply to every user. As is the case with other available solutions against hair loss, the choice needs to be suitable to every person and their circumstances.
