STAYING BALD IS
Frequently Asked Questions
we host a variety of ready-made hair systems that are ready-to-go at a moment’s notice. Please note that there is a minimum length requirement for optimal blending of the hair piece to natural hair. If you would need to grow your hair, we would suggest you go with a custom-made hair piece. Please ask your barber during your
consultation For custom-made hair pieces, the production time-frame would be from 5-7 weeks. Our team will inform you once your piece has arrived and would book you in for your service
Our product is not a hair transplant. It’s a noninvasive, non-surgical, semi-permanent solution. Using the product has no side effects and it can be removed when desired, leaving no scars or marks
To use our product, the thinning/balding area on top of your head will have to be shaved. If your hair loss situation is partial and/or only located in the front (receding hairline) or only in the back (crown area), a surface size of minimum 4 inches square will need to be shaved to ensure solid and safe bonding of the hair system. If your hair loss situation is in the front and in the back, with a good area of thick hair in between, most of the top of your head will still need to be shaved to cover the two balding zones with the hair piece and to obtain better and more realistic results.
Our hair units can be attached to your scalp using special certified skin safe liquid adhesive or special double sided tape The attachment can be partial or full and can be done in different ways, offering bonds that will vary in resistance according to your needs and lifestyle.
You will wear the hair system between 10—15 days on your head, depending on your lifestyle, body chemistry and
location’s weather conditions as well
Every 10—15 days, you need to return to 1847 as the piece needs to be removed, the old adhesive will also need to be removed; the scalp will need to be cleaned and the hair that has regrown will need to be shaved again. The hair system will then be refitted to the scalp using fresh adhesive. A customer can choose the home-maintenance route. Our barber will prep you with all the necessary information needed.
All our hair systems are made with 100% natural human hair. Our premade units are made with A-grade virgin Indian hair and our custom units are made with superior authentic virgin Remy Indian hair.
The lifespan of our hair systems will depend on a variety of factors including the type of base material it is made of, the usage and the maintenance given to it. Hair systems do naturally lose quality over time as the hair strands become drier and more worn looking. The frequency of the maintenance services (refits), the products used to style and maintain the hair, the exposure to the sun and the frequency of shampoos done to the hair are all factors that will make the hair strands age with time, the knots weaken, and the base lose its shape and strength. Our hair systems are all designed to last between an average of 4 to 6 months, except our special ultra-thin skin hair system which has a lifespan of 1 to 3 months due to its extremely thin and fragile base material.
All our hair systems are designed to resist sweat and water exposure. What is affected by those elements is in fact the adhesive and not the hair unit itself. The adhesives we recommend are sweat and waterproof but they also each have limits to how much water/sweat exposure they can take before they start to break and need to be changed.
