To all the anti-wig people (Hair Replacement Systems)

I dont understand why they seem to post negative comments all the time. I understand they may have worn in the past and it wasnt for them, so what?, just because you didn't like it doesnt mean its like that for everyone it isnt.

Yes a HT can be a great solution but there are a lot of negatives to do with them also. A lot look thinner than normal hair, theres the worry that the results wont look very good especially a few years later, scaring, huge costs, continued surgery, meds needed just to maintain which can have nasty side effects etc etc... Plus there are plenty who arent good candidates and its either wear or shave, shaving is great if you can pull the look off, a lot cant.

I know someone who went to a top doc (very highly respected) his results looked great but for whatever reason things got worse he ended up firstly using concealers to thicken it then decided to shave and wear, he said it was the best thing he's ever done.

I wouldnt go on a HT forum telling people dont do it, you'll ruin your life, like some do on here.

People are different people think in different ways, be open minded and let people make their own minds up.

Rant over.:-)

They are a total pain in the ass but yes some people are not good candidates for surgery. I wore for 14 years and hated it but it did serve its purpose and it was better than running around looking botched. I cannot recommend it though because of the expenses and unnatural feel of the product. But you are right every person has to solve this problem in their own way. There are many wig wearing people out there. I am grateful I was able to be mostly fixed and was able to ditch it personally but to each his own.

Well dw1972, if they don't hear both sides it will be more difficult won't it ?

Let them hear both sides and THEN make their own mind up on the subject.

This is not a forum for pure cheer-leading.

To all the anti-wig people

For someone like myself, who still has about 75% of my own hair...
Wearing a partial hair-system is a no-brainer.
I'm not wearing an unnatural BIG-THICK, hedgehog on my scalp.
yes, it can be a pain in the ass, at times.
And isn't cheap.

Once I learned how to take care of and maintain my systems...
I also had a number of sub-standard hair-systems which were defective.
Which also caused me grief, but overall my hair replacement career has been pretty positive.

Being a working musician, who does not want to wear ball-caps or hats on stage...Led me to take the plunge into non-surgical hair-replacement.
My main personal hair-loss problem is that my own hair-loss was patchy in spots.
I would never use a comb-over, they look so ridiculous to me.

Sure, if you are an old man who wears a huge-thick rock and roll mullet-type hair system...You will look ridiculous.
I have been wearing systems since my early 40s and I will continue to do so, until I feel it's too much of a bother or expense.

Some days, I simply do not wear my hair system and wear a ball-cap.
I have only been called on my hair-wearing by one guy who had seen me without my hat a few years before I began to wear hair-systems. He thought I had a transplant and he thought that it looked very good.
