It is imperative that the hair system is attached to the scalp properly to ensure that there is no further hair loss in the area underneath the hair piece. There are two methods of attaching non surgical hair replacement systems to the scalp.
1. Clip On Hair Systems :
These are attached securely with clips onto your natural hair. Clip on hair pieces are easy to attach and remove. Hence, you don't need to visit a salon to fix them.

3) You cannot sleep with it.
2. Semi Permanent Hair Systems There are three ways of attaching semi permanent hair systems:
a) Liquid Adhesives: These hair systems are attached to the scalp with the help of liquid adhesives by a process known as bonding. It is important that you get the procedure done at a well reputed salon as it may cause the skin to flake. Also, the stylist must be someone who has enough experience in fixing and removing the hair system so he will ensure that even your natural hair has some space to breathe.
b) Double sided tape: A double sided tape is used to stick the hair piece onto the scalp. The procedure is simple and easy to do. However, the glue from the tape can come off during activities like swimming, or exercising.
c) Double sided tape with liquid adhesives: To make the hair system more secure, so that one is able to carry out their daily activities, the liquid adhesive can be used additionally on the tape.
