Hair loss – it’s a tricky subject, isn’t it? Especially when you’re discussing it with a loved one.

Here at Optima Hair Specialists, we’re here to help guide that conversation towards a positive solution – like the use of hair systems.

So, let’s get started!

Understanding and Accepting Hair Loss

It’s important to know that hair loss isn’t a rare occurrence. It can affect anyone, regardless of gender or age, due to various reasons like genetics, lifestyle, stress, or certain health conditions.

Feeling low or even embarrassed about hair loss is a common reaction. However, acceptance is key. Once you’ve made peace with the situation, you’re better equipped to deal with it and look for solutions.

The World of Hair Systems: What They Are and How They Work

If you haven’t come across hair systems yet, prepare to be impressed. Hair systems are non-surgical solutions that involve attaching a layer of real hair to your scalp. They’re designed to blend in seamlessly with your existing hair, giving you back that full-head-of-hair look.

There are different types of hair systems like lace, monofilament, and skin systems, each with unique benefits. The best part? They’re comfortable, natural-looking, and can be tailored to suit your style.

Starting the Hair Loss Conversation and Introducing Hair Systems

Discussing hair loss and hair systems with your partner requires tact and understanding. It’s essential to create a safe and stress-free environment when bringing up the topic.

Expect an emotional response, and remember to be patient and ready to answer any questions they might have.

Once you’ve discussed hair loss, it’s time to introduce the concept of hair systems. Explain what they are, how they work, and their benefits. Highlight how hair systems can restore confidence and normalcy in life. Sharing some inspiring stories from the Optima Hair website might be helpful.

Alternative Solutions to Hair Loss: More Than Just Hair Systems

Don’t worry if hair systems aren’t the way for you, there are alternatives like Laser Hair Therapy, Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) and Hair Loss Concealers.

Here are some alternatives to discuss with your partner:

1️⃣ Laser Hair Therapy uses low-level lasers to stimulate hair follicles, promoting growth.

2️⃣  Scalp Micropigmentation (also known as SMP) is a technique that uses tiny ink impressions on the scalp to create the look of a fuller head of hair.

3️⃣ Hair Loss Concealers use keratin based fibres or sprays to disguise thinning areas, blending them with existing hair.

Navigating the Hair System Journey Together

During your conversation, your partner may have some objections or concerns about hair systems. This is an opportunity to provide reassurance, show your support, and create a safe and supportive environment.

Remember, your ultimate goal is to stand by your partner through every step of their hair loss journey.

Discussing hair loss and hair systems with your partner doesn’t have to be an uphill battle. With understanding, patience, and open communication, you can navigate this journey together, ensuring they feel loved and supported every step of the way.

We wish you all the best in your conversation with your loved one!
