If you’ve decided you want a human hair replacement system, first and foremost, congratulations on making a huge and impactful decision! You’re one step away from combating hair loss and getting a full head of hair once again. However, it’s not enough that you’ve just simply decided to wear one. You need to be committed to mastering hair systems even with all the obstacles and struggles you will eventually face.
After all, this is a long-term hair replacement solution and while there is a learning curve, you will eventually improve your skills and confidence when it comes to handling hairpieces. In fact, sooner or later, it will become a regular part of your routine similar to your skincare routine for example. With that said, this blog will focus on how you can make a commitment to hair systems.
Change your way of thinking with hair systems
Hair loss can be mentally draining and you will likely have experienced a wide array of emotions before and during your hair system journey. That said, it’s important to clear and address those emotions before you start wearing one.
You may already have a negative perception of toupees and wigs for men. It’s someone else’s hair, it’ll be too obvious, why not just get a hair transplant or use prescription medicine? It’s important to remember that nobody is paying as much attention to your hair as you are. The only ones that do, if any, are people like you who have suffered from hair loss. The difference is, you’ve taken a step to address yours by wearing a hair system for men.
Now, once you start wearing your non-surgical hair replacement system, you’ll see that you will go from checking your head for potential hair loss to checking if it’s easily detectable that you’re wearing a hair system. You may constantly fidget with your unit and check for lifting around the base, whether it looks realistic or if anyone will figure you out. This is completely normal and natural. But as aforementioned, it’s important to realize that only you are paying attention and scrutinizing your appearance.
Here are some things to keep in mind while you’re wearing a hair system:
- Don’t assume strangers are staring at your hair. Nobody will know (assuming it’s not a poorly done job).
- Unless you have some major problem that isn’t concealable, nobody will look to inspect your hair or ask about it.
- Don’t look for problems or remain preoccupied with your hair system. That will only increase your insecurity. Take a deep breath, step away and focus on something else.
Experienced major hair loss?
Now if you’ve gone from extensive hair loss to a head full of natural hair, people will know the difference, especially when they’ve seen you before at least a few times. It will be a shock and surprise at first, but it will quickly go away. After all, a good installation will make people forget you’re wearing hair because it quite simply looks like your own real hair. And even if they still remember that you went from bald to a full head of hair, at least they will know that you took the steps to improve your appearance. Just think of a co-worker coming into work with new hair — it’ll be surprising at first and catch your attention, but after a few days, the newness disappears and you’ll accept the new look. The same applies to your hair system. With that said, it’s also important to rehearse how you respond to potential reactions just to be safe.
More than getting people to accept your appearance, you need to accept yourself first. If you respect yourself and the way you look, you will get the affirmation you’re looking for from others. This is easier said than done, of course, but can go a long way down the road when your hair system becomes a part of your lifestyle.
Make the commitment
Finally, make sure you are committed to the hair system journey from the start. It’s okay to want to try it out and see how you look. But if you’re purchasing one online, it’s important that you stick with it and more than anything, focus on mastering the process rather than worrying about your hair loss.
Focus on the solution rather than the problem and you’ll become comfortable with installing, cleaning, maintaining, and removing hair systems in no time. Remain positive, believe you will succeed, and don’t worry about “what if” scenarios. You have decided to take charge and battle your hair loss by wearing a toupee for men. That’s a lot of progress in itself.
