Prosthesis Wig Base Types
Here are a few examples of base materials for cranial prothesis wigs:
If you have to apply a cream or get injections to your scalp, this type of base is a viable option. It’s also ideal for people with thinning hair. It allows you to pull your existing hair through the unit. Your natural hair is combined with the hair in the wig to create more volume and complete head of hair.
This type of base gives the appearance that the hair is growing from the scalp. Breathable, thin fabric is placed at the prosthesis hairline or the front of the head. There’s ample ventilation and comfort at the base top. It will breathe while being worn which prevents itchiness and irritation. Also, due to the ventilation, it will prevent moisture buildup and heat.
LACE FRONT & FULL LACE PROSTHESIS WIG BASE TYPES
Lace front base uses very thin lace across the front of the hair prosthesis. This gives the illusion of a natural hairline. However, you can only part your prosthesis in the front. There, it can be parted in the middle, either side, bang parts and can be put up into a ponytail or bun.
The full lace base offers the most flexibility for styling your hair prosthesis. The lace covers the entire base cap. Therefore, you can part your hair anywhere you like and create unlimited hairstyles.
