Men go bald for different reasons. The most common of these is an inherited condition called male-pattern baldness, which results in hair loss to the front and top of the hair. Over time, male-pattern baldness can cause total hair loss, though many men go bald only partially. Other times, men go bald because of medical conditions, malnutrition, or because of medication.

Baldness also happens to women. Female hair loss occurs in more than one pattern. Unlike hair loss in men, female scalp hair loss may commonly begin at any age through 50 or later, may not have any obvious hereditary association, and may not occur in a recognizable "female-pattern alopecia" of diffuse thinning over the top of the scalp

Hair replacement also comes in a variety of ways. Hair systems such as wigs, toupees, hair extensions, hair pieces, and even surgical hair transplant, are very much available in the market and are easily accessible to anyone.

There are various types of wigs and hair pieces you can choose from, depending on your style and budget. There are synthetic or machine-made wigs that consists of wefts of hair (synthetic fiber) that are sewn together to create the base of the cap. Some of these hair systems have a skin-like material on the top, front, and crown area to give a more natural appearance. The style is set into the synthetic fiber permanently and will return after each washing if care instructions are followed properly.

Hair pieces that are hand-tied human hair is a type of wig that usually consists of a combination of a very thin skin like material, polyester mesh, silk, monofilament, silicone, or thin polyurethane. Areas at the front, ear tabs, and nape of the neck could have a special non slip material or a material that thin transparent tape will adhere to. Some of the different types of hair that are used are Asian, Indian, Remy, and European hair. It is important to follow the care from the manufacturer when washing and styling the hair piece to avoid tangling of the hair.

Human hair machine-made hair extensions and hair pieces are more expensive but more realistic type of wig. The quality of the wig is determined by the type of human hair that is used and the cap construction. This type of hair replacement piece requires more time for care and styling. Unlike the synthetic fiber, it will require re-styling each time that it is washed. Caution should be used when washing certain human hair wigs. Depending on the quality, the hair may become tangled after it has been washed.

Another type of hair replacement piece is the hand-tied synthetic cranial prosthetics. Each strand of hair (synthetic fiber) is hand tied onto a base material that is made from polyester, silk, monofilament, or a combination of materials. The curl pattern and style is permanently set into the synthetic fiber. They provide a very natural appearance as if growing naturally from the scalp. This is a light-weight hair piece and is an excellent choice for a woman that desires a very natural appearance with ease of care. The products range in price from around 250.00 to 750.00 for a well designed synthetic hair replacement.
