Selecting the right "Base" material (Hair Replacement Systems)

posted by USTom, 05.10.2011, 19:48

Base Color

Selecting the correct base color is a big deal in making sure that your system looks really good. Different companies use different colors. I have used systems from many companies so I've pretty much seen them all.

I noticed that some looked better than others and I was never sure why. Finally after looking in the mirror for so many years I realized that many of the base materials that some companies use have a "reddish" color to them.

I think it makes the unit look much worse whenever you can see the scalp. If your hair is wet or if you have any part of your hair that you can see the base, this becomes an issue.

Only recently have I gotten a system with a white base material and it looks just like a real scalp when the hair is wet. Why everyone doesn't use a white base material is beyond me as I don't haven't found any benefit to a reddish color base.

If you have a choice, opt for the whitest base material you can get. Most companies unfortunately won't give you an option but if you pay attention to scalps of people with their real hair, their scalps are almost always white and never the tint associated with most of the base materials that are being used.
