Now this is great for hair replacement companies, because let’s face it, they want to sell you a new hair replacement system – it’s their main goal. So it’s no real surprise that hair system repair is both uncommon in the hair replacement world. toupeeĀ 

The truth about hair repair is that almost all hair replacement systems can easily be repaired no matter what their current state is. Hair adds, replacing lace fronts and tape tabs and repairing holes in the base are all actually very simple. The thing is, your hair replacement company likely won’t tell you this because they make a lot less money repairing an old hair system than they do selling you a brand new one.

So you’ve found a company that claims to repair hair replacement systems – how can you tell if they’re giving it to you straight? Here are a few simple things to look for:

Are they willing to take a look at your hair system regardless of how bad you tell them the condition is? Generally if you call up a hair replacement company looking for a repair, tell them what’s wrong with your hair system, and they start talking about new hair replacement systems, this is a pretty big red flag. A genuine hair repair service should be willing to take a look at any hair system and have a “can do” attitude.

What is the cost? Usually almost all repairs can be performed for under $100 dollars, with the exception of adding a new lace front. This means that if your hair repair service is costing almost as much as a new system, you’re probably getting the shaft. A genuine hair repair service is affordable and costs far less than buying a new hair system.
