The lifespan of your hair system depends on three things- base material, hair quality and how well you maintain it. These three factors are explained below.

Base materials

Different base materials have different levels of durability. The general rule is the less detectable a hair system is, the shorter the lifespan. Conversely, the more durable a hair system is, the less natural it looks. Base materials can be divided into the four categories below. The lifespans listed are general indications only.

  1. Swiss Lace and Thin Skin hair systems last 4-6 weeks
  2. French Lace hair systems last 4-6 months
  3. Combination Mono with Poly hair systems last 6-9 months
  4. Poly hair systems last 9-12 months


Type of Hair

The quality and type of hair used in hair system production is a major factor in lifespan. We ensure strict quality control when it comes to selecting the hair we use which acts to extend the lifespan of your hair system. Another factor is the level of processing your hair requires. Darker colors and straight styles require less processing, while lighter colors and curly hair requires more treatment. This will impact the lifespan of your system. However processed hair will still easily last 3-6 months with proper care.
