Vacuum wigs are wigs where the cap is made with thin skin, a polyurethane material. The vacuum wig cap is made specifically for people who are living with severe hair loss, totally bald. The thin skin vacuum cap has a suction like appeal since the thin skin seals to the scalp giving the wig a very secure fit. The feel of the vacuum cap is very similar to the feeling you get when wearing a swim cap. The thin skin provides a tight and secure fit as the thin skin adheres to the scalp. The thin skin wig cap is worn without adhesives, no tape and no glue. The vacuum cap does not work for people with hair and they cannot wear the vacuum cap because the hair interferes with the contact between the thin skin and the scalp. Hair causes the thin skin to not grip to the scalp. If you have hair, the vacuum wig will not adhere or stay secure.
If you have hair loss in other areas of your head, we can strategically place thin skin in various areas like the perimeter, crown, sides or most areas of where there is hair loss. The hair in the thin skin or vacuum wig is ventilated by hand. The hair is injected into the thin skin which makes the hair appear to be growing directly from the scalp. The hair can be parted anywhere, styled the way you want and it has a with a multi-directional flow. The injection process of the thin skin wig cap has no revealing knots.
The thin skin vacuum cap is available to match skin tones, transparent, light brown, medium brown and dark brown colors. The thin skin vacuum cap blends into your skin when worn, very similar to our lace wigs. The vacuum wig cap blends into your skin. The thin skin vacuum wig cap has a natural hairline and virtually undetectable to the touch.
Since thin skin is made with polyurethane, keep in mind that thin skin is not breathable. Some people have found this cap to be a bit warm, but wear it for the beauty, convenience and security.
