Bases are undoubtedly most critical parts of hair replacements offered by our company. It has to be stated at this point, however that they may become most problematic as well. Whatever its type, the base is just a foundation to which hair is attached or injected. When you understand how the HairAgain hair bases are designed, you will find it remarkably easier to choose the most suitable products around. Remember to always focus on your preferences. Do not forget to also ask yourself what kind of base you are looking for: would you like it to be invisible or durable? However, we are far from stating that a durable base has to be conspicuous. There are bases that combine all most valued features that our customers find crucial.

How can bases be divided?

You will surely be able to make the right choice after propely learning about the types of available bases.


1. Classic – Traditional bases.

The bases in question are the most popular ones among our customers. They are a combination of netted and scalp-like materials. They are thick, yet very strong. The discussed products can be attached by means of clips, glue, or tapes.

2. Lace front – Base with front lace.

Those bases can be considered to be a perfect combination of interesting looks and the durability of hair replacement. In the front, there is lace, giving the item a very natural looks along the entire hair line. Our offer incorporates various patterns and materials, from which you may choose something that you will find adequate. The major drawback of the aforementioned bases is the weight difference between lace and scalp. You may find it a little disturbing at times. In addition, you can feel a small seam in the area where the materials are connected. They can be attached by means of clips, glue, or tapes.

3. Full lace – Base fully made from lace.

Those bases are in their entirety made from netting or lace. They feature a very delicate fabric. However, multiple materials are used to enhance their overall strength. Their predominant asset is their exceptionally natural look. It also has to be said that they are the lightest, with the air flowing through them freely. Unfortunately, they are very easy to damage, which adversely affects their lifespan. They can be attached by means of glue or tapes.

4. Skin – Bases made from scalp-like materials.

Those bases are made entirely from polyurethane, a material that closely resembles human scalp. It is fairly popular, mainly because of its overall strength and color that can be adapted to match your scalp. You can choose from materials of various thickness. Leather bases do not breathe, although gases can pass through them. This is why, while compared to other bases, they may make you feel hot and a little bit uneasy. They can be attached by means of glue or tapes.

5. Other.

Most of the bases that are made out of nylon netting are additionally reinforced at the back and from the sides with a polyurethane layer. Some of them allow for integration, which means that you can thread your own hair through them. Such bases can be attached by means of clips.

Base materials

Polymer or netting

These are the most frequent materials used while producing bases . The final outcome is typically the combination of those two materials in a single base. Polymer imitates scalp’s color. Leather imitations are very durable and therefore polymer components are added to the most vulnerable parts of the base in order to strengthen them. Sometimes, the final product may be made entirely out of plastic. The said plastics are, in turn, made from either silicone or polyurethane. It is commonly known that gases can permeate them, which is true. Nevertheless, one has to remember that they are poorly ventilated, which severely compromises the comfort of wearing them.

Netting materials, which are often called LACE, WELDED MONO, MONOFILAMENT, and MICROLEATHER, are made from polyester or nylon. One can also find bases that are fully made from netting, but in the case of many of them, netting is used only in most visible outer parts of the base. Net gives the final product a natural look. The lifespan of the system highly depends on its density. Nylon bases are woven from a single thread. Polyester bases are made from multiple threads, which eventually results in them looking like honeycombs. Netted bases are considered to be delicate, easy to be torn, and sensitive to scalp secretions, which may damage the material. Therefore, they are prone to frequent repairs or replacements and due to the said fact – they should rather be avoided. Despite all these shortcomings, netted bases are still very popular among our clients. It may be caused by the fact that they are characterized by their invisible hair line and lightness.

Silicone – advantages and disadvantages

Silicone is considered to be neutral to the body of the wearer and resistant to the acid produced by the scalp. Due to its neutrality, however, it resists coloring. Therefore, it may be in some cases difficult to achieve a neutral color of the scalp. What is more, it is rather impracticable to attach it with glue or tape.

Polyurethane – pluses and minuses

Polyurethane is not as strong as silicone is, but it is in turn remarkably easier to be dyed to the color of the scalp. Bases made out of the said material may be attached to the body by means of glue or tape. Unfortunately, the material in question is very sensitive to scalp secretions and, with time, it can go yellow and fade.
