Good Hair Systems Care
Hair systems care starts with washing the system; Whether you are a daily wearer or keep your hair system for an extended time, the adhesive residues will gradually build up on your unit and hair.
- On average, you should wash the system’s hair once to twice weekly. The system’s hair does not get the natural oils from your scalp. To prevent hair dryness, once or twice a week is sufficient.
- Avoid rubbing the hair while shampooing. Gently move the shampoo smoothly through the hair and in one direction.
- Rinse with warm water, not hot. Mild water temperature keeps moisture in the hair and prevents the attachment adhesive from breaking down.
- A “wet brush” or a wide-tooth comb helps spread conditioner and detangle the hair.
- To dry the hair system, use a towel and pat down to lift any access water.
- If needed, use a hairdryer only in a cool heat setting.
System Remove & Clean
How to remove and clean your hair system?
- To remove your hair system, place your thumbnail under the hairpiece.
- Peel the tape and your system off your head gently. If the tape or bonding adhesive is still firm on the scalp, use alcohol or adhesive remover to loosen the bond.
- Remove the tape from your hairpiece. Use your fingernail to scrape up the tape’s edge to start the peeling and any adhesive residue left on the hair system.
- Use only recommended hair system products.
- Add mild shampoo to a bowl filled with water. Use warm or cold water, but not hot.
- Hold your hair system from the front of the base forehead area.
- Immerse the hair system & gently agitate it in the water; pat softly but not rub.
- Gently move the shampoo smoothly through the hair and in one direction from roots to hair ends. Never rub in a circular motion.
- Rinse in freshwater.
- Add good conditioner; use fingers, a “wet brush,” or a wide-tooth comb to spread conditioner and detangle the hair.
- Always use movement from roots to hair ends.
- Rinse in cold water without rubbing the hair roots.
- Dry out as much water as you can with a towel gently and do not rub, wring, or squeeze the hair.
Clean Your Scalp
How to clean your scalp after removing the system? If you take your hair system off daily or after a few days:

Styling Hair Replacement

- Air dry if possible.
- Do not use a dryer with a hot temperature setting.

Dallas System Care
For the best hair system care, use the services of hair replacement or wig specialists. You will have the assurance of a clean scalp & hair and a more reliable, longer-lasting hair attachment. Request that your hair system is colored monthly to match the person’s hair & prevent off-color screaming “toupee.”
A hair system can last anywhere from 2 to 12 months, depending on the care, lifestyle, and system quality. You may want a second hair replacement system to alternate between wear. It will give you time to do deep conditioning and hair coloring updates, always looking your best.
