Buying a wig or toupee for men is challenging, besides, some men find it embarrassing. However, buying a wig particularly to cover baldness or increase hair volume should not be seen as an embarrassment but as an effective way for men to improve their self-confidence. It can be very confusing to shop for hair patch but knowing what you want and need will surely guide you into buying the right one for you.
Type of hair
One of the most important things to keep in mind when shopping for wigs is the type of hair used. Wigs come with either natural hair strands or synthetic hair strands. Synthetic hair can be an issue for men with sensitive skin and hair patch with natural human hair will be a better choice for them. Synthetic fibers are generally made from acrylic, rayon or any other man-made fibers, while natural human hair as name suggests come from human. To ensure that you choose the right one, consult your dermatologist especially if you have sensitive skin. They can suggest you the most suitable one. Hair patch is the most common wig style for men as it generally covers the bald spot that usually occurs on the center of the head and is the most common bald spot for males.
How to ensure the correct fit
Once you are sure about the hair type, the next thing to do is to give the measurements for the wig. Many reputed stores would measure the customer’s head to ensure great fit. This includes sideburns to sideburns, ear to eat, front center, the width of the nape and around head. This is a major step as giving the measurements mean that the wig will be customized according to your head and will blend perfectly with your natural hair.
The best way to order a hair patch is to visit an established clinic that provides both hair and skin treatments. There are many standalone wig stores, also you can order a wig online, but it is best to consult an expert like Dr. Meet and discuss about your hair loss problem and get a patch customized according to your needs.
