And why are they so popular among hair loss men of all ages...
Is your hair thinning sides and back? It may be that you need a full cap
Essentially a full cap is a complete hair system that covers your entire scalp, where all your hair should be.
So that includes the back, sides and hairline.
A full cap could also be described as a 'wig', but with today's advanced technology, a full cap is more than that.
Cut in correctly it can be indistinguishable from a real head of natural growing hair. This means it can be cut and styled
just like a normal head of hair. Its light base means that the wearer can't feel it once secured to the head.
Many men choose a full cap mainly because their side and the nape hair at the back is thinning. Often when the side hair recedes
it's difficult to replace the hair on the top of the head, as he side hair is obvious indication baldness has occured. Seems
means any hair secured to the top of the head sticks out like the proverbial sore thumb. Also with advanced baldness, nape hair
can be considerably lost.
Shaving the sides and back, and wearing a full cap gives the wearer an entire new head of hair. The benefits of this are no
more hair cuts (you just shave your head every week to enable attachment). And no hair color matching - you can have any color you wish.
So, if your remaining hair is 100% grey, you can choose a full cap that is 60% grey and 40% color 1b. Any percentage you'd like.
Full caps are usually attached either with tapes or glue and the strength of the adhesion - and its duration -
all depends on your body chemistry. Some men get holds for longer periods than others, but all men will get a good hold.
The beauty of full caps is you can choose loads of different hairstyles. You're not stuck with one style, like a standard
wig. If you want to discuss this further, please click on the Contact button above and fill out the online form. We'll get back to

Frequently asked questions about full caps - answered!
What sort of hairstyle can I have?
Unlike traditional wigs, a full cap is very versatile. Because of its thin base and precision-placed
hair is it like a real head of hair.
It's possible to have your hair short, but not too short at the sides and back. But there is no reason why
a full cap could not be cut down to half an inch length.
What about my existing hair side and back?
This has to be shaved, because you're not going to get a strong bond taping onto existing hair. And obviously
you couldn't if you used glue.
How long can I wear a full cap?
A day, a few days, a week, and sometimes a month. It all depeneds on your scalp. If you have a greasy scalp, you
may have to attach and detach daily, but this is not a problem if you have poly on the base and you're using
tapes. Just ask a hair tech if in doubt.
How long will it last before I need a new one?
Again, it's all down to the individual and how you take care of it and use it. On average you may get
6-8 months wear - but in some cases up to 12 months.
