Scalp and maintenance for cranial hair prosthesis is vital. To ensure the integrity of your hair prosthesis, it should be removed and cleaned periodically. Additionally, your scalp requires attention as well to maintain good scalp health.
If you are removing your cranial hair prosthesis at home, use “Scalp Ease”.
Scalp Ease is a natural healing product that will reduce inflammation of the scalp, itching and dryness. Your scalp will feel soothe and refreshed. Spray a little on your scalp, wait 5 to 10 minutes, then reattach your prosthesis.
Alternatively, you can come in to our Uptown New York Style salon for maintenance. We will take excellent care of you and your hair prosthesis.
As time goes on, there will be daily wear and tear to your hair prosthesis. Just like wearing the same piece of clothing all day, every day. They must be freshened at some point.
Therefore, scalp and maintenance for cranial hair prosthesis systems is essential. Also, if you have a silicone base, proper maintenance will maintain the grip of the silicone cap. Plus, help avoid unpleasant odors.
If you frequently sleep in the prosthesis, expect the weight of your head rubbing the hair against the pillow to cause hair breakage.
Cranial hair prosthesis is done in several steps that include making a template of your head for a perfect fit. The base is made using a hypoallergenic fabric. People having chemotherapy are usually very sensitive to any material, and their scalp is prone to allergies.
The same is done when applying the hair to the base. The technique used to attach the hair is focused on avoiding that the knotting touches the scalp.
Hair replacement systems and wigs are not the same as a cranial hair prothesis.
A hair prosthesis is a custom-made hair system specifically designed for patients who have lost their hair as a result of medical conditions or treatments. These can include alopecia areata, trichotillomania, chemotherapy, or other clinical disease or treatment.
