Sam - to be honest with you they are wigs and they don't look natrual.

I got pursuaded into one yrs ago at Advanced Hair studios - i was young and very vunerable - long story short - had it on for 3 days and couldn't stand it!!! people knew and it was mortifying

Specs why would you get a hair system when your a consultant at a medical hair replacment clinic?? hmmmmmm

a friend of my fathers had sugery and his results drove me to a hair system
its a dangous process not to mention expensive & painful but hey if your prepared to have a big style scar at the back of your head, if it all cocks up it cannot be reversed & what you gonna do when / if the hair on the top of your head starts falling out once you got your new hairline?? yep you end up looking like a monk :)

hi Sam wearing a hair system all comes down to the individual. I'm 25 and i've had a hair system since last December and haven't looked back since. its 100% natural looking with an undectable hairline. they make them customised for each individual. when my hair started falling out i started wearing hats around the same time due to work i moved away from my hometown. after i had my hair system fitted i visted home at Xmas and no one suspected a thing, my friends and family alike.

I went to Farrell UK which is much better than Advanced systems!! not only is the system brethable is also has an undetectable hairline and they've been voted the best for the last 7 years ! See for yourself!!

I had the system fitted over six yrs ago! - then went down the surgery route. :D

Scott - no hmmmmmmmm about it buddy.

Surgery has moved on quite a bit since the guy your reffering to had it and chances are the guy was unfortunate to go to an unethical dr who potentially didn't specialise in ht's - i've had my work done over in the U.S where they are incredibly advanced - FYI

A system is a system breathable, lace front how ever you want to talk it up. You will be forever having it refitted, replaced and it will inevitably kill off your hair that it is guled to leaving you a staright bald line round your head - seen it many times before -.

I hope the systems works out for you and that you feel you can get on with your life - systems aren't for everyone same as HT'S

This is my opinion

Hi Scott!

You sound very happy with your system, good for you mate!

If you don't mind can you tell how much the hair system cost? and how often do have to go back and get it groomed? also at what cost?

thanks bud

I'm sure that a system seems the best option for a young guy. The systems can give you a great looking head of hair I thought about it myself in my early 20's. Surgery seemed way too extreme and didnt like the thought of scars ect. However when you think of the longterm it has all the advantages:
Just pay once and the hair grows for the rest of your life. It even changes colour/texture with the rest of your hair as you age.
As spex says surgery has progressed a lot over recent years. There are plenty of horror stories scars ect but not if you use a reputable surgeon.

Points against a system:
The cost of maintanence and replacement over a lifetime will be enormous.
The new hair is instantly obvious unless you are going to uproot your life and move away like scott did.
Constant fear of it being discovered/ having to worry about maintanence.
Your original hair being killed off.

Honestly mate wouldn't waste my money on it. I was terrified before having my surgery but would now recommend it as long as its with a top surgeon.
You should get on a daily regimen to prevent further hairloss eg propecia/finesteride and then start to research. I would advise you to contact spex to see what options are available to you. He isn't a salesman and wont advise you to have surgery or do anything if it isnt neccesary. He doesn't work for anybody and is the best person to ask for advice. There are plenty of companies who will prey on your insecurities in order to get some money out of you. Be careful they dont care about your longterm situation. Check out the what people on the forums have said after meeting spex. You are wise to be suspicious like scott but he is really just a good guy who knows what you're going through. Good luck mate.

Hate to admit it but I had exactly the same situation as another guy, young and vulnerable and got one. It was called a 'system' but they are all stuck on with some kind of glue, after your head has been shaved= wig! It wasn't uncomfortable but can you imagine having that on your head all day. It got really hot and dirty under there. They all have to be taken off every five weeks or whatever and cleaned, can you maging the dirt, grime and sweat that accumulates under there? Plus how about doing sports with a wig on your head? Ok, 'system.' Also, I have no idea how they claim that they are 'breathable' when they don't let air in and are completely waterproof.
No doubt they are good for some people, notably people with no hair at all and are prepared to put up with all the above things. But if you still have thinning hair on your head use minoxidil and propecia, which about everyone knows are the only two things that can really help, and use a cosmetic thickener, which is what I do, with brilliant results. If you want the name contact me, not allowed to mention it on here apparently. Regards, John.

Anyone seen stuff on toplace or coolpiece, they are supposed to be as good as the expensive ferrell hair pieces. And what do you think about getting a transplant for the hairline and using ahair piece behind that?

Hi Keratin,

I don't know too much about hair systems myself but I came across these entries on HLH from someone wearing a toplace system that you asked about. Hope it's of some use to you.
