Skin Hair System: Usage and Benefits

Men and women across the globe vouch for skin hair systems to remedy untimely hair loss and rev up their looks and self-esteem, easily, conveniently, and cost-effectively.


Per the American Hair Loss Association (AHLA), 85% of men experience balding by the age of 50. It’s visible before they turn 21. Genetics is the prime cause of balding, contributing to 25% of total cases. As premature balding cases escalate, we see trends favouring skin hair systems.


What is a skin base hair system? Why does it matter, if at all? Who is it for? Let’s discuss.


An Overview

Imagine an artificial patch of hair to cover the hair-less area of the head. That’s the hair system. Hairpiece, toupee, unit or hair system, all mean the same. It’s primarily for men, but women also use it either as an extension of their bio hair or to hide an exposed scalp. Ideally, the hairpiece corresponds to the wearer’s skin tone, hair density and colour and other aspects. A hair system requires adhesives to stay in place. Alternatively, elastic bands may be used.


The hairs in a unit are embedded onto a base material. The base material is the foundation of the group. Among all the base materials out there, thin skin stands out. It’s made of solid-surface polyurethane with a thickness as low as 0.03mm. The material is nonporous, light-weight, safe, and blends well with the head surface, giving an illusion of natural hair. The only drawback is the skin base’s low durability, usually 13 weeks under regular use and proper maintenance.



Living with thinning hair is a challenge. Your looks, overall personality and confidence are compromised, leaving you to fend for yourself. Skin base hair systems cover the hairless areas of the head, helping you reclaim life. Anyone can benefit from these hair systems, regardless of age, gender, or hair colour and density. No matter what caused hair loss – genetics, stress, radiations, alopecia, medication, poor diet or chemotherapy – you are covered. Forget costly and painful surgeries when you can get a full head of hair quickly, safely and economically.



Has this piqued your interest? Here’s an elaboration on the benefits of a skin hair system.


  • Natural and Undetectable: When natural-looking and undetected hair is a priority, thin skin systems make sense. The hair is embedded onto the polyurethane base, which can be as thin as 0.03mm. The thinness makes the unit nondescript enough to fly under the radar. Instead, it’s undetectable to the eye and touch. As the base material moulds onto the scalp, lookers get the impression that the hair is growing from the scalp. That translates to the most realistic appearance of the front and top hairline. 


  • Comfortable Fit: A comfortable-fit comes by default with thin skin hair systems, thanks to the base material’s thinning, light-weight and the ability to gel well with the scalp and bio hair. You won’t feel that it’s even there. Solid surface polyurethane is nonporous. Air, water or sweat, nothing can permeate through. So, expect proper coverage minus the hot and irritating feel of a wig.


  •  Active Lifestyle Compatible: You are an outgoing person ready to leave an impression wherever you go. Your hair system has to be compatible with your active lifestyle. Thin skin hair systems won’t disappoint you here as well. They are designed to remain in place, come hell or high water. Whether it’s a crowded ceremony, swimming, sports, lengthy gym sessions, or a trek to windy mountains, the unit stays intact, sparing you the embarrassment. That’s one reason why these hairpieces are a rage.


  •  Easy to Maintain: Like almost every prized possession, a hair system also requires proper care to perform well and last long. Breathe easy, as the thin skin hair system is easy to maintain and upkeep. The secret lies in the system being fully washable. Just wash and comb regularly; you are sorted. As specifications may vary from brand to brand, it’s advisable to go through the care instructions. 


  • Seamless Density Transition: The way the density transitions from thinner to fuller hair determines how realistic the hair system looks. The thin skin hair system delivers on this count too. The change mimics your real hair, relatively more light-weight on the front side and gradually thickening towards the middle.
