How to use the hair system to avoid itchy scalp?

Most people who use the hair system will have an itchy scalp at some point. What causes itchy scalp? How to avoid itchy scalp when wearing a hair system? Newtoupee will explain the main causes of itchy hair and how to avoid them in this article.


  1. Poor quality hair system

Due to poor ventilation, a low-quality hair system is more likely to cause itchy scalp. It is important to choose a high-quality hair system, because in any case you will bear the consequences of its poor quality. Take some time to find a high-quality hair system. When choosing a high-quality hair system, keep the following tips in mind.

Choose the hair system that best suits your head.

Choose high-quality materials. A good hair system is soft and comfortable to the touch. Generally speaking, a hair system made from human hair will be better than a synthetic hair system.

Choose the appropriate base type. A good hair system allows your skin to breathe and prevents the head from overheating. We recommended to choose a soft lace material.


  1. Allergic reactions to adhesives

If you have an allergic reaction to hairspray, itching and burning will occur.  Because the adhesive stays in contact with your skin, it can cause scalp irritation.  Keep the following tips in mind when using adhesives.  

 When wearing the hair system for the first time, we recommended that you can test the adhesive on your hands and leave it for several hours to see if there is any irritation or itching.

If you are allergic to latex or related compounds, latex hair adhesive is not for you. There are some non-allergenic products on the market that may be better suited to your needs.  

Once you see any signs of reaction, immediately remove any glue from your hair. After that, wash your hair with warm water to relieve the heat and itching from the spots. If necessary, consult a doctor.


  1. Irregular cleaning

If you do not clean your hair system or scalp thoroughly regularly, you may feel itchy scalp. When washing your hair and scalp, remember the following tips:

Always take time to wash and rinse your hair and scalp. Make sure they are free of shampoos and other hair styling products, as they will only cause itching and inflammation when you reapply the hair system.

Use an oily solvent to remove the remaining adhesive on the scalp, and then use another cleanser to remove the solvent.

At the same time, rinse the rinsing fluid in the bottom of the hat, which is the area near the scalp.


  1. Too much sweating

We all know that our scalp sweats whether we wear the hair system or not. Some people sweat more naturally than others. On the other hand, wearing a hair care system is more likely to cause sweating on the scalp. In addition, because water does not easily pass through some of the basic materials of the hair system, sweat will be trapped underneath and evaporate for a longer time. Due to the retained water, itching may occur. Remember the following tips to reduce the itchy hair system of the scalp caused by sweating.

If your hair system has a full skin or monofilament base and you sweat a lot, you may need to change the base material. For better ventilation, please use a full lace base.

Regularly washing the scalp with medicated shampoo will help remove sweat from the scalp.

Try adding a scalp protector to your plan.


  1. Don't cut the hair

Many people find that shaving before using the hair system and then attaching to the smooth scalp surface will produce the most stable and long-lasting attachment. On the other hand, those who are susceptible to razor burns or ingrown hair may experience itching or skin sensitivity as the hair grows. You can avoid itchy scalp caused by razor by doing the following:

When preparing the scalp, give up the razor and use a hair clipper to see if the itching disappears.

If you already have folliculitis from a razor, you can wash your scalp with antibacterial soap every day and use over-the-counter antibiotics that can wipe your skin.

Usually, when you are satisfied with wearing the hair care system, the itching will subside. If it lasts for more than a few weeks and is not just a slight itching, please check the list above.
