Acknowledge that there are two types of hair integrations, one for full hair loss and another for thinning hair. Hair integration does not damage your own natural hair because you are not using chemicals or glue to attach them. If you have full hair loss, the long-term tape attachments would serve best.
Lay the hair integration piece over your scalp and using nylon string secure it under your chin firmly holding it in place. Since there is no base to the integration pieces, it is breathable creating no problem to your scalp.
Brush the hair through the integration openings of the net. You can either wear the hair integration piece permanently, if you prefer waking up with hair, or you can put it on in the morning, which typically takes about 10 minutes to complete this process.
Replace your hair integration piece every three to five years, as recommended.
Check to see if your insurance company will cover the hair integration cost. Some insurance companies do participate If your hair loss was due to a medical problem. Sometimes the American Cancer Society will also help out with the cost, if your hair loss is related to cancer treatment.
