Medical hair loss can affect different people in many different ways. Alopecia may leave some patients with patches of hair missing whereas those affected by cancer may lose all their hair.
The first step to determine the most suitable form of hair replacement would be to seek medical advice. Then with the help of a hair consultant select the most suitable method, shade and style for your new hair.
There are different types of hair solutions in the form of wigs and hair integration systems.
Please read on where you can find more in depth information about the available options.
Hair integration is a pioneering new hair replacement solution, for those whose hair is thinning or suffering from patchy hair loss. For individuals who still have some of their own hair this system is ideal as it avoids the need of wearing a full coverage wig, as it is a semi permanent fitted full head of hair.
Hair integration is a non-surgical procedure which involves blending your existing hair with a human hair piece called a “Closure” or “Frontal” unit. This unit is made from 100% human Remy hair strand by strand, attached to ultra-fine soft lace and shaped to fit you perfectly. It is then discreetly secured to your head. Your own natural hair is then blended with the unit hair to create a full head of amazing looking hair!
This revolutionary method has restored the confidence of many wearers. Many individuals can’t believe the difference hair integration has made to their overall appearance and state of mind. The fixture is semi permanent so you wear your hair around the clock, unlike wigs which you would remove before going to bed.
The beauty of a hair integration system is that you can:
When selecting a wig the experience can often be daunting. Due to the wide variety of styles, colours and wig types, selecting out a wig for the first time can seem, to say the least, overwhelming.
Understanding the differences between the types of wigs is important as well as consulting with a specialist wig stylist that can help you to choose a style and shade that will suit your skin tone and give the most natural appearance.
Routes offer bespoke wigs that are hand coloured, toned, cut and styled so they are unique to the individual. However you do have the option to take a one length wig to your own stylist to have it cut and styled to your own chosen look.
There are three types of wigs available:
1 - Lace Front Wigs
Routes Lace Front Wigs are perfect for everyday use or for a special occasion. Our high quality wigs are hand-knotted strand by strand from ear-to-ear at 4 inches deep. This gives the wearer the option to part the hair in any direction. The remainder of the wig is machine sewn onto a breathable cap for the most comfortable feel that will keep you cool and dry. The cap size is universal and can be adjusted to fit your head using the built in combs and secure strap.
2 - 360° Lace Wigs
360° Lace Wigs have everything a Lace Front Wig does, with the added bonus that the lace goes around the entire perimeter of the wig. This means you can wear your wig in a high ponytail because the lace in the back will look like your scalp. The middle portion is machine sewn onto a breathable cap.
3 - Full Lace Wig with silk top
Full Lace Wigs are the most versatile wigs ever created. The entire wig is hand knotted strand by strand onto the lace cap. This means however you like to part your hair the strands will look totally natural. This gives the wearer more style options. You can wear high ponytails, pigtails, French braids, anyway you like. Routes full lace wigs also feature a silk top which gives the appearance of a natural looking scalp with hair follicles.
