After doing the Mesh Integration System for over a year & a half I feel I have gained lots of experience, in not only the application itself but also in the Consultation & Aftercare of the Systems for my clients! I feel often, when clients come to see about the service, most have the same questions to ask. I understand sometimes coming in for the Consultation can be daunting! Want to know the answers to some questions before enquiring?
Read below my TOP 10 FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS..
I'd love to hear some feedback in the comment section too - is there anymore questions you'd like answered!? Ask below.
1. How long will the System last?
Due to using human hair for the System there is no definite life span on it as such. It is a natural consumable product which means it's purely down to the care of the hair - with the correct care & maintenance I've seen the systems last upto 1 year ++
2. How do I wash the System?
Upon installation of the system you will be given full aftercare instructions which includes full washing instructions. The main thing to remember is to be slightly more gentle with your System than you would be perhaps with your own natural hair & scalp. No vigorous rubbing.
3. What products do I use to wash my hair whilst wearing the System?
You will be required to work with Sulphate free products ONLY. We have two brands we can recommend in-salon. These are the best products to use on your hair & will ensure you hair remains in good condition whilst wearing your System.
4. What is the mesh that is used?
The mesh we use acts as a second skin. It's a hypoallergenic lace which contains holes to help the scalp breath. It's a strong lace specifically used for the Hair Loss Systems.
5. How often do I need to come for maintenance?
Maintenance for your System will be due every 6-9 weeks. Your hair will grow underneath & will need to be retightened to ensure good condition is kept of the natural hair & the scalp during wear.
6. Can I go to the gym or swim with the System?
Unfortunately we DO NOT advise swimming when wearing the System unless you are able to keep this fully out of the water (chlorine). However, exercising is fine. Upon consultation we talk to you about your everyday lifestyle & will always advise what we think is best for YOU & give you the right aftercare instructions to suit.
7. What is the cost?
I get asked this a lot via message/email. Unfortunately we cannot discuss cost until we see you at your consultation appointment. This is due to the drastic differences of which suits each client. Prices range depending on the area's needing covered, the length of the System, the thickness required/desired. Colour too!
8. Will my hair continue to grow under the System?
Your hair will continue to grow as normal under the System. As mentioned before the mesh allows your scalp to breathe due to the tiny holes in it. Keeping up with maintenances & using the correct aftercare supports this also!
9. What happens to my hair underneath the System?
If your hair follicles are dormant, wearing the System will not stimulate any growth. When you are having the System maintained you may notice some shedding. This is completely normal, as for 6-9 weeks any dead hair will have been secured in, so even when natural shedding occurs the hair has no where to go until we release the connections for it to do so. Your hair & scalp will remain healthy under the system, along as you follow all aftercare instructions & attend your regular maintenance appointments.
10. Can I colour my System?
Preferably we will not have to artificially colour your System. Although we do offer a custom colouring service, this will lessen the life of the hair. We have lots of colours to match you up/choose from upon your consultation appointment. This is best to ensure you achieve a great match. Silver shampoo should be avoided.
Mesh Integration is a system for females who have suffered from 30-80% hair loss, wether it be area's of baldness or overall thinning this system is life changing from the minute it's fitted! The system is constructed using a mesh net as the foundation. Any existing hair on the scalp is integrated through the net and then the hair wefts and hair piece is woven onto the mesh.
Here is Hayley's hair after the application of the Mesh Integration System.
It provides an undetectable finish, natural appearance, great coverage for the area's of hair loss AND it can be styled as if it's your own hair.
