What is Hair Patch or monofilament Hair Unit?
I am going to explain you about hair patch. What is hair patch or hair unit? Hair patch is made-up of three things-
1. Monofilament , 2. PU base and 3. Knotted Hair
Monofilament- Click to enlarge
It is a fishing line which is made up of artificial substances, including nylon, polyethylene, Dacron and Dyneema. With the help of this wire, the dense square net is made. Square net is produced where the hair is being knotted. When 1 to 2 hair is knot in the net then its knotting is invisible and when 4 to 6 hair comes together to make a knot then it is visible like a pen dot point. Single hair knot is good for visibility for skinny effect but bad for life. Single hair knot hair patch life is 5 to 6 months. Where as quad hair knot is not good for visibility but great for life span. Quad plus knot hair patch life is one to one and half years.
2. PU- Base-
It is a base where tape, glue or clip going to be installed.

3. Can i sleep with wig everyday?
Can I sleep with wig everyday?
No! If you sleep with, it might be fall down and you can not feel comfort through out the night. So it is suggested to put off the wig at night when you going to bed.
knotted hair start to open after sleep with it
If it so we meant you sleep with wig, the wig life will be less, cause the knotting of hair become loose and start hair fall in wig. In this way you can get less life of wig due to break of knotting of hair of wig. In your sleeping mode the wig is like sandwich in between your head and the pillow, when you move your head here and there on the pillow, the head gives pressure to the wig and knotted hair become loose. In this way hair fall takes place.
So the suggestion is- Do not wear wig during sleep.
once in a while in an emergency is okay.
2. Can I wear a wig for 12 hours for my first day after my chemo?
Yes you can but depends on the condition of the patients. Recommended time is 1 hour to 2 hours. Some age difference also be considered.

Start wearing a wig with recommended timings. Once you practice and be in your habit then you can increase the timings 2 hours to 4 hours and so on. Do not use for 12 hours for very first time to use a wig. It can give you the severe headache.
