balding men and women don't like loosing their hair, but as a
matter of a fact their are over 1.5 (one) billion bald and
balding men and women worldwide.
For many men
and women it is very depressing when the first realize that the
hair they loose daily is not being replaced by new hair growth.
For many, it starts with a receding hairline or a thinning bald
spot at the rear crown area of their head. For young men and
women this is a major blow to the youthful image and self esteem.
As a rule, most
adult males or females loose around 10 thousand scalp hair daily.
The normal length of time hair stays vital is around five years.
Scientifically speaking, we know that people suffering from Male
or Female Pattern Baldness do not see normal hair replacement
like those who do not suffer from Male or Female Pattern Baldness.
The first realization
is invariably that all the hair brushed or combed out everyday
is not being replaced by new hair growth. Receding hair and Spot
Baldness can, for many men, signal a major blow to the image
of youth and self esteem. Adult humans loose about 10,000 scalp
hairs each and every day. Hair normally lives for around five
years. We know that with Male Pattern Baldness these hairs do
not always get replaced and gradually bald areas appear.
What is normal
Men and women
suffer from hair loss for many reasons. But typically hair loss
starts between the ages 20 to 45 and gradually progresses to
complete Male or Female Pattern Baldness.
There are a number
of reasons why men start to go bald, but if you are a man between
the ages of about 20 to 45 and you start to loose scalp hair,
then the chances are 95 per cent certain that you are experiencing
Male Pattern Baldness. As the term suggests, male pattern
baldness follows a typical sequence or pattern.
Hair loss does
not always begin in the same area for everyone who loses their
hair. For some it may start at the temples or on the rear crown
area of the head. Initial thinning of hair progresses over the
years and gradually leads to total Male or Female Pattern Baldness.
However, more typically hair loss normally appears down the center
of the head from front to rear and gradually thins and widens
over the year until full term Male or Female Pattern Baldness
Sadly many men
and women are genetically opposed to Male or Female Pattern Baldness,
however, it is the effect from hormones on each hair follicle
that produces male or female pattern baldness. The hormone call
testosterone is the cause for hair loss. It is the high levels
of testosterone in males and females, after puberty, that transforms
testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) by an enzyme called
5-alpha reductase. DHT has an adverse affect on hair follicles
and on the hormone receptors of each hair follicle causing it
to slow down hair production. As a result the hair follicle produces
weaker, shorter hairs, sometimes it even stops hair growth from
the follicle completely. This process gradually depletes your
stock of hair and causes normal Male or Female Pattern Baldness.
There are other
medical reasons for sudden hair loss, many men and women suffer
from hair loss in clumps. This becomes apparent when you see
large amounts of hair on your pillow, or hair stuck to the neck
of your shirt or blouse, or when you wash your hair. This type
of hair loss does not represent typical Male or Female Pattern
Baldness, but it does require a diagnosis. Don't worry. Hair
loss can occur for a number of reasons and can often be treated
of Hair Loss

universalis (where the whole body is affected), or totalis (where
the whole of the scalp becomes bald).
2. High temperature associated with infections or flu.
3. High temperature associated with infections or flu.

people pull out their hair.
8. Fungal infections of the scalp.
9. Ringworm or burns.
universalis is the loss of hair in various areas of the scalp
in small, large patches, or sometimes where the whole top area
of the scalp becomes bald.
The normal process
is to lose the in patches, but in time the lost hair does grow
back to its normal health.

FIRST: Place a pre-shaped fleshtone
lace front monofilament (see through) Foundation over the top of your
head, where your hair loss area(s) exist and draw an outline
of the bald area where you wish to design each Partial Hairpiece
or Wig to cover or fill-in.

Foundation to a

desired to create your Partial Hairpiece or Wig.
THIRD: Remove the ventilated
Foundation and apply some
to the underside surface of the Partial Hairpiece or Wig just
created. This compound when dry locks in the ventilated hair
and creates the appearance like hair growing from scalp on the
hair side of the Hairpiece or Wig you have created.
This area is
the actual 'Tape-Tab Area' where toupee tape or bonding Adhesive
may be applied for securing your Hairpiece or Wig to your scalp
