  • Hair Weaving and a Hair Replacement System

    Cindy Lee asked:

    Among the most interesting and often important services provided by hair stylists are hair weaving and hair extensions.


    Hair loss in either men or women can create feelings of vulnerability, self-consciousness and a loss of self-esteem.  Imagine every day being a “bad hair day”.  This is what people who are balding or have suffered any significant hair loss experience every day of their lives. 


    With hair weaving techniques that add more hair, these people can regain their confidence, self-esteem and youthful appearance.


    Aging, chronic hair pulling (Trichotillomania) and incomplete hair re-growth after chemotherapy are some of the factors that can create partial hair loss. 


    For those of you new to the area of hair weaving this article will provide some basic information on hair weaving to attach a hair replacement system or full wig, and introduce you to the electric hair weaving machine.  This device helps the stylist create the exact look desired and shortens the time it takes to create the weave track.


    First, here are some basic terms. 


    Hair weaving is where either synthetic or human hair is cornrow braided or woven into the person’s existing natural hair at the scalp.  An extension weft or custom made hair system is then sewn on the created track.


    A hair extension is the synthetic or natural hair that is attached to the existing natural hair.


    Natural human hair used for weaves, wigs and extensions comes mainly from the continent of Asia and to some smaller degree from China, India, Eastern Europe and Russia.  This human hair comes in a wide variety of grades.  The highest is pure human hair from young donors that has been gently processed leaving the cuticles intact.  This is called “Remy” hair.  Human hair can also come in lower grades included those diluted with animal or synthetic hair.  High quality unprocessed 100% European human hair is of course more expensive than hair mixed with animal hair or synthetics.


    Synthetic hair can be made from a variety of synthetic fibers including Kanekalon, Toupelon, wool, alpaca, mohair, rayon, goat, nylon and yak.  Synthetic hair comes in wefts and single strands for braids.  This type of hair is best used for braids since using heating appliances such as straightening combs or curling irons is not recommended.   For the obvious reason of supply synthetic hair is cheaper than natural high-quality human hair.


    Corn rowed hair refers to a traditional style of African origin in which the hair is made into small braids starting close to the scalp.  These can be made in simple rows or very complex patterns.


    Human hair extensions can also come in higher Cuticle Remy or unprocessed Caucasian European grades as well as lower grades including those diluted with animal or synthetic hair. 


    One of the most innovative recent inventions in the world of hair replacement is the electric hair weaving machine.  A hair weaving machine takes the place of traditional cornrow braids and is used to help the stylist create the track for attaching natural or synthetic hair extensions to the head.  By using this machine the stylist saves time while keeping the track extremely small as well as less detectable, typically the size of a pencil lead. With it you can attach several different types of hair additions to the head such as Integrations, wefts, wigs, and partial hairpieces giving the client an extended wear ‘prosthesis’ that can be slept with and showered in. 


    Hair replacement systems have been a part of society since the early Egyptians.  With current advances such as the electric hair weaving machine we can make hair extensions and custom hairpieces look more natural than ever before and so help our clients get exactly what they are looking for.

  • Hazards of Hair Weaving

    Sharon Bell asked:


    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
