    Deborah Rayner asked:


    If you are like so many other people who are looking to do something about their hair loss then you may be considering purchasing and wearing a lace front wig. Perhaps you have been using some sort of hair regrowth treatment and come to the same conclusion that so many others have and that is that its a lot of time and expense, for limited if any results.

    More Good News

    The good news, is that todays lace front wigs are available in a wide range of styles made from a number of fibers including human hair and much more realistic than ever looking synthetics. More good news, is that when a quality front lace wig is properly attached, it is virtually indistinguishable from a real head of hair, even on close inspection.

    Treat it Like Your Own Hair

    Part it as you may, fling it around in the wind and even sleep in it if you have to, because if you have a top quality lace front wig on, you have absolutely nothing to worry about. One particular group of people that are truly benefiting from the easy availability of high quality front lace wigs online, is people with tight bushy hair and people in the market for hair extensions.

    Hair Extensions and Straightening

    Hair straightening and extensions are both expensive and tend to have a very rate of customer approval. That is that if you have your hair straighted or lengthened there is a god chance that you will be less that satisfied with the finished results. Also, your treatment only last for so long and if you have both of them done, you can easily expect to spend at least a thousand dollars.

    No Appointment Necessary

    This is why virtually all of the famous celebrities that you see on your TV and in the magazines that you read own and use lace front wigs, rather than subject their hair to any of these punishing treatments. Also, it only takes a very short time to apply a lace front wig and you don’t need to make an appointment.



  • Hazards of Hair Weaving

    The simplest way to cover up baldness is to wear a wig. Others may opt for more sophisticated techniques like hair weaving, hair implantation, or fiber implants, but all have serious side effects.

    “In hair weaving, the patient’s own hair is used to anchor a woven-on hair piece to the scalp. This technique tends to weaken and damage what is left of the wearer’s hair. Not only that but also the process needs to be repeated frequently since the hair piece will loosen and lift as the patient’s locks grow longer,” revealed Dr. Fredric Haberman, a dermatologist at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and Denise Fortino in “Your Skin: A Dermatologist’s Guide to a Lifetime of Beauty and Health.”

    If you’re considering hair implantation, the results can be disastrous. This technique, in which a hair piece is sutured to the scalp, can cause soreness and scarring that may destroy the patient’s healthy hair follicles. Implanted hair may also be ruined by combing, styling, or shampooing.

    Fiber implants are even worse. The implantation of synthetic fibers into the scalp can result in infection, scarring, soreness, and ****** swelling. If the above methods scare you, there are a number of drugs that may do the trick. Since the hair root is usually alive even after hair is lost, there is a possibility or re-growth.

    Oral cortisone tablets can sometimes stimulate hair growth but prolonged use can lead to serious physical or mental side effects. Furthermore, once the drug is stopped, the new hair falls out.

    “Other forms of cortisone are rubbed or injected into your scalp. Their effect is often temporary and this treatment is practical and effective only for small areas,” according to Dr. David E. Larson, editor-in-chief of the “Mayo Clinic Family Health Book.”

    Certain chemicals rubbed onto the scalp can cause hair growth by irritating the area. Not everyone, however, will be pleased at the results of this time-consuming method.

    So far, the most successful method for treating male-and female-pattern baldness is a hair transplant. There are many variations of this surgical procedure.

    In punch grafting, the surgeon removes tiny pieces of skin containing about eight to 15 hair follicles and transplant these on the bald areas on the scalp. This is done by means of a small instrument that punches out pieces of scalp from the sides or back of the head which aren’t affected by baldness.

    “The punched follicles are placed in spots on the bald scalp that have been cut with a similar instrument. The donor sites are closed with stitches, while the area that received the transplant is bandaged for a day or so. The grafts have to space far enough apart to ensure adequate nourishment from surrounding blood vessels. That’s why hair transplants are done in stages, often with about 30 grafts at a time, then at least a three-week wait,” said the editors of Consumer Union’s “The New Medicine Show.”

    After six weeks, the transplanted hair falls out but new hair starts to grow in three months. The new hair is coarser in texture but appears thicker. It will grow just like any other hair on your head which you can cut, comb or style. (Next: Scalp reduction for hair loss?)

    Even if you don’t have hair, you can still look good with Lumnaderm, a whitening cream that eliminates freckles, unsightly age spots, sun spots, blemishes and hyperpigmentation. When used as directed, Lumnaderm will balance uneven skin tones and illuminate your skin. For more information, visit http://www.lumnaderm.com.

    Hair are a reflection of your health & personality. Hair is a remarkably tough material. It can stand up to considerable abuse, but over time your hair gets damaged or loses its natural properties. If taken care off they can add to your beauty. Nutrition is the key to healthy hairs. Nutrition is the most effective way of getting awesome hair. Hair is a filamentous outgrowth of dead cells from skin, found only on mammals. It projects from the epidermis, though it grows from hair follicles deep in the dermis. Although many other life forms, especially insects, show filamentous outgrowths, these are not considered “hair” in the accepted meaning of the term. Humans have three different types of hair: Lanugo, the fine hair that covers nearly the entire body of fetuses. Vellus hair, the short, fine, “peach fuzz” body hair that grows in most places on the human body. Terminal hair, the fully developed hair, which is generally longer, coarser, thicker, and darker than vellus hair. Hair texture is measured by the degree of which one’s hair is either fine or coarse, which in turn varies according to the diameter of each individual hair.

    Many hair care products is available in market. Head massage is a beautiful relaxing treatment practiced for thousands of years. Shampoos are designed to cleanse the hair and scalp, removing dirt and grime without stripping away too much of the natural sebum. Hair straightening is a technique used to eliminate curls and reduce wavy hair in which the basic structure of curly or wavy hair is changed to a straight form. Some important hair and scalp care is necessary for those donning the stylish braids. Dabbing a bit of sunblock on the scalp is critical to preventing sunburn. Hair extensions are a huge self-esteem booster because they give women the opportunity to get the long hair style look without the wait Hair extensions are individually glued to your own hair, causing damage to your hair and head. Hair rinse is one of the important ways by which we can protect the hair, make it smooth and easier to manage. Instead of running for costly hair products. Hair Brush is very necessary for getting beautiful hair. Beautiful Hair is an asset for any woman. Hair Conditioner is a way of giving the hair the nourishment it needs to look good. The hair follicles receive nourishment from the bloodstream, but the hair shafts ceases to receive nourishment by way of external care.

    Hair Care Tips.

    1.Castol Oil is better to apply castor oil for a healthy growth of hair.

    2. If your hair is thin, wavy, curly or stick straight, try to accept the fact and don’t be embarresed and torture your hair by using strong chemicals that may damage it just to straighten it or curl it.

    3. Wash hair with tea once in a week.

    4. Proper hair care is the use of proper hair care products and proper hair care techniques. Different types of hair need different hair-care products. The use of wrong products for hair care may even damage your hair permanently.

    5. Apply besan in the hair and wash it with water drained from the cooked rice.

    6. After cleansing, the scalp and hair need toning exercise. The toning of scalp and hair is achieved by gently massaging the head. This helps in stimulating and invigorating the blood circulation required for the healthy growth of hair.

    7. Soak a handful of gooseberry in a cup of milk for two hours. Make it as a paste and apply it on your hair.

    8. Maintain your hair with pride and consistency. Depending on the length and style, have it trimmed appropriately. If you wear your hair short, have the style refreshed every 3-4 weeks. If you are growing your hair longer, have it trimmed every 6-8 weeks to remove split ends.

    9. Coconut Oil Massage: Massage hair with warm coconut oil an hour before washing with a hair shampoo. Let it soak. Cover your head with a hot towel and wash your hair after an hour or so.

    10. Apply the mixture of an egg white, 2 spoon of castor oil, 1 spoon glycerin, in the scalp and hair. Wash it after some time.

  • Lace Front Wigs Vs Regular Wigs

    Steve Parr asked:


    Why is the world going lace front crazy?

     

    The answer is very simple! When you weigh up the pros and cons of wearing a lace front over a traditional wig, the lace wig wins hands down on nearly every single criteria. Lets have a look!

     

    Traditional wigs are made from synthetic or standard grade Remi or Yaki hair, whilst generally the best grade A+++ Remy hair is used in a lace wig. They also have bulky cap construction with tracks, fasteners and grips compared to the seamless wafer thin lace that the hair is knotted into. The best lace wigs are made entirely by hand and take over a month to fabricate. Lace wigs when applied properly are virtually undetectable, the lace cap can be made in different colours so that it exactly matches the wearer’s skin tone.

     

    Anyone can spot a normal wig, it stands out a mile! A lace wig has virtually no styling limitations, you can wear it up, wear it down, part it any way you like, you can even take it to the salon with you, its 100% human hair and you can treat it like your own 100% human hair. If you’re human that is. Its rumoured that the Venusians are starting to wear them too! And who was the first person you ever saw wearing a traditional wig? Probably your granny. And just why do you think it is that the lace front is the superstar’s wig of choice?

     

    And to those that say a lace front is too expensive, lets break it down. How often do you go the salon - once a month? And how much do you spend each time? Maybe £75? A typical high quality lace front is around £300. Over the two year life of the wig, that’s just £12.50 a month. And thats not to mention the hours and hours you spend in the salon on every single visit.

     

    At Afrodite Lace Front Wigs we hold parties for our customers so that they can learn about lace wigs, how to put them on, take them off, and they even have an opportunity to try on their favourite styles. You wouldn’t believe the transformation just the act of putting on a lace front makes to a customer - they start behaving with the confidence of a superstar, but without the outrageous dressing room demands. Well, actually, one girl demanded a second glass of wine…….

     

    Look at our gallery of styles of women of all ages wearing beautiful lace front wigs and you can get loads more information about styles, accessories, lace, densities and much more. And we promise to make you the very finest quality hand made lace front wig at a price you’d normally pay for one off the shelf and all to your exact specifications, colour, style, length, highlights, texture, curl, density.
