There are four categories of patients who should seriously consider hair prosthetics as the best solution for their hair problem:
- Those who do not have enough hair in the donor area to complete a hair transplant procedure successfully
- Those whose recipient area is not likely to comfortably support a transplanted hair follicle, or alternatively the recipient area might have sustained a sizeable physical trauma
- Those who want to have lush and rich results; results that are not replicable in situations of hair transplants
- Those who do not wish to undergo an surgical procedure or wish to postpone it
Hairpieces offer their users a degree of flexibility, as they can be placed and removed whenever the patient desires. It also allows their users to change his/her look if he/she so pleases.

Care and Other Instructions:
From the moment the prosthetic piece is delivered to the individual or fastened on the individual’s scalp, he/she will automatically have to maintain the piece by coming to DHI every 20 to 45 days. The time it takes has to do with how well the client takes care of the piece and the type of affixture method used. This is rather convenient for men as they can schedule their monthly trim with the repair of the hairpiece itself. Women also have an opportunity to freshen up their coif. Typically, after the 6 months and some point right before the 12th, hairpieces are replaced by new ones.
