Do I have to commit myself to any contracts if I want a Total Cover Plus hair system/hair integration system?

No.

We know that our AirActive ContactSkin® hair system is the best product on the market and freedom is an essential part of our philosophy.

That’s why we have a solution for everybody – it is up to you if you stay independent and pay as you go or if you opt for long-term security and pay monthly with our saver deals. There are no maintenance obligations. The Total Cover Plus hair system should adapt to your life and not vice versa.

Why is there a service charge?

The price for the hair system is the same everywhere, and this is the purchase price for a system. The service includes the cleaning of the scalp, preparation of the scalp, application of the Total Cover Plus hair system, customisation, cut, blow dry, styling and styling tips. You can expect the whole procedure to take between 2 and 3 hours.

Does the Total Cover Plus hair system/hair integration system stay on my head all the time?

Yes. The Total Cover Plus hair system/hair integration system is only removed during your next appointment at the salon, just before you get your new hair system. You can shower in it, exercise in it, do everything as you normally would.

Does it hurt?

Unlike most other hair replacement methods, which are painful and/or have serious side effects, the Total Cover Plus hair system/hair integration system does NOT hurt at all. We use medical grade, pH neutral materials that have never caused any allergic reactions and do not pose any risk to your health.

I have very sensitive skin. Do I have to worry about allergic reactions when I wear the Total Cover Plus hair system/hair integration system?

All the materials we use conform to surgical standards and have been used by medical professionals for years without causing any allergic reactions. Our materials have also been dermatologically tested and proven to be completely safe.

What hairstyle can I have?

 You can have almost any hairstyle you want. You can wear your hair long or short, comb it back or wear it spiky. On our website you can find a range of photos and videos of different hairstyles. If you have a specific hairstyle in mind, why not get in touch and make an appointment with The Dude Lab!

Where is the right place for the hairline to be fitted?

The placement of the hairline very important & often the biggest concern for my clients.

I will always work with my clients to ensure that it is in the most natural place. Some handy ways to ensure that we have it in the right place is, if you look in a mirror and lift up your eye brows, you will see your frown lines and muscle movement which identifies your face from your scalp.

If the system is too low, it will be placed where there is muscle movement and this could create excessive lifts on the front hairline making the system more visible (reflecting light so drawing attention to the membrane).

There is some opportunity to bring the system slightly more forward but for us it would be wrong to move the system unnaturally forward so it is important that we work together on ensuring the system in the right place.

I have some clients who sometimes wish to mask a higher forehead which they’ve never liked, I would always work with the client to adjust the style to suit your face shape which is something anyone with their own hair would do.

What can and can't I do with a Total Cover Plus hair system/hair integration system?

Whatever you do with your normal hair you can do with the Total Cover Plus hair system too. You can shower, swim, drive a convertible or go sky diving, your hair won’t hold you back. However, we do recommend that you only use Total Cover Plus styling products.

Do I have to use special haircare products?

We offer our own range of haircare products which have been developed specifically for the Total Cover Plus hair system/hair integration system and therefore provide the best care possible. This is the only way for you to make sure that you get the most out of your hair system. Our products contain less silicone, softening agents and alcohol than regular haircare products and are the best day to day care for your hair system. Check out our grooming range! Here

Do I have too much hair?

Hair density does play an important part in deciding who’s suitable for a hair system, but the strength of the hair growth & follicle is what’s important as this is what creates pressure underneath the membrane so the weaker the hair, the less impact it causes and the better the client’s experience is with a hair system.

How does the Total Cover Plus hair system work?

 The Total Cover Plus hair system is based on the following 4 principles:

non-chemical, non-surgical, non-invasive and undetectable

The basis of our hair system is our unique AirActive ContactSkin®, an artificial skin that imitates the properties of the human epidermis, the top layer of the skin. It is only 0.03mm thin, has pores and is breathable. This allows your skin to breathe and sweat naturally while you are wearing the hair system. We implant individual human hairs randomly into this artificial skin, creating the impression that the hair is naturally growing out of the artificial skin. Each Total Cover Plus hair system is unique and customised to fit the exact balding/thinning area on your scalp. It is carefully bonded to your skin, using a water based and toxin free bond, and remains in place for up to 7 weeks. The Total Cover Plus hair system becomes a part of you without restricting you in any way and allows you to live your life to the fullest.

Does a Total Cover Plus hair system work for everybody?

We believe that our hair systems are suitable for most people with hair loss. However, there are many individual factors that can affect the hair system and these can differ considerable between people. Therefore there aren’t clear categories that can define how suitable our hair system is for any given person. Below you can find out more about the three most important factors.

The best thing in general is to come in for a free initial consultation where we  will assess your hair loss and determine if our hair system is suitable for you.

Hair loss:

The less hair you have the better the hair system will work for you. Any hair underneath the hair system keeps growing. The more hair growth you have underneath the hair system the more hair could potentially push up and subsequently cause the bond to be less effective. Also, the larger the bald area, the stronger the bond, as any tension on the hair system can be spread out more widely Therefore the rule of thumb is: The less hair the better.

This doesn’t mean that you have to be completely bald. It simply gives you an indication of how the hair system works best.

For people with diffuse or patchy hair loss or fine hair, such as you would see with female pattern baldness or alopecia areata, a hair integration system may be more suitable.

Sweat:

The PH level of your sweat (or in other words: how acidic your sweat is) is an important factor in terms of how long the bond will last. The more acidic your sweat the faster it will affect the bond. The overall amount of sweat also has an effect.

Skin:

The oilier the skin the more it affects the bond. We can also only apply the system to healthy skin, so if you have a rash, a wound or any other skin issues on your head, we won’t apply the hair system until your scalp has healed.

Please keep in mind that for only around 1 in 10,000 people our hair system is not suitable due to acidic/excess sweat and oily/damaged/sensitive skin. So generally this is something most people should not worry about.

Is there any way to gradually restore a full head of hair from being bald?

One of the great benefits of the Total Cover Plus hair system is the hair re-grow simulation. It means that we have the option to gradually add more hair in every session, moving your hairline or filling in bald spots bit by bit and thereby creating the illusion that your hair is re-growing slowly over a period of time. We can do the same with hair length, giving the impression that your hair is gradually growing longer like natural hair would.

What can and can't I do with a Total Cover Plus hair system/hair integration system?

Whatever you do with your normal hair you can do with the Total Cover Plus hair system too. You can shower, swim, drive a convertible or go sky diving, your hair won’t hold you back. However, we do recommend that you only use Total Cover Plus styling products.
