Views: 1758

The lifespan of a hair system depends on two factors and they are hair system base and the hair itself. Different model hair systems have a different lifespan ranging from one month to 12 months. Generally speaking, the thinner the base is, the shorter the lifespan will be. For example, the 0.03mm ultra thin skin is the thinnest base available on the market and it can only last around 2 months. While at the same time, a silk base is almost the thickest base and it can last up to 12 months or even longer.

Different people have their own preferences when choosing a hair system. Some prefer to use the undetectable thin skin base, while others prefer the durable hair units. So how to extend your hair system’s lifespan no matter what base hair system you choose? Read on to find out.
