Scroll down to find out which is best for you.

What are the benefits of hand punched hair?

Before making a choice, you should first decide if hand punched hair is right for you. One of the most important factors is that hand punched hair helps to disguise the attachment tab. This helps the product blend into the body much more naturally. If wearing your prosthetic in public (to the gym for example) is part of your decision making process, then it may be something to consider. We'll take you through the different types of hair, and which type would be best for your needs.

    Synthetic Hair

    Synthetic hair is known as kanekalon, an acrylic fiber that is a bit coarse and feels and looks very close to actual pubic hair. Synthetic hair has a tendency to tangle easily, and needs special care when washing or styling...it can also break rather easily if pulled too hard.

    PROS:

    ●Looks similar to pubic hair


    CONS:

    ●Harder to care for
    ●Tangles easily
    ●May break if pulled too hard

      Human Hair

      Human hair is typically much softer than synthetic hair, and can be washed and styled normally without the need for special treatment. It can also be dyed. It is more expensive, however it will last much longer.

      PROS:

      ●Long lasting
      ●Easy to care for
      ●Dyeable


      CONS:

      ●Not as curly as pubic hair

      Why add hair?

      REALISM. Individual hairs are punched into the prosthetic skin, and feathered at the edges of the shaft, creating a very natural hairline.

      The pubic area naturally has hair, choosing this option adds to the realistic look of the prosthetic, helping to even further relieve that sense of dysphoria.

      FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

      Click on the question to reveal answers.

      ● Should I choose Synthetic or Human Hair?
      The choice to pick either synthetic or human comes down to two main factors....price and longevity. Synthetic hair is a bit more affordable, however it does not last as long as human hair. Human hair is more expensive, however it will stand the test of time. If you plan on keeping your prosthetic for a long time, then human hair is probably your best choice.
      ● How can I get the best match to my hair color?
      The hair on your body does not always match the hair on your head...arm and leg hair can be lighter (usually from being exposed to the sun), while chest and pubic hair can be darker. We would recommend choosing a hair color that is closest to the hair in your genital area or lower abdomen. If you are trying to blend the prosthetic hair into your stomach hair then going with a color closest to that would be your best option.
      ● How do I take care of my hand punched hair?
      Synthetic hair should be carefully brushed to avoid tangling. If washing, we recommend spraying with a warm solution of shampoo/conditioner and pat dry. Human hair can be washed with shampoo normally and rubbed dry with a towel. Brush with a wide tooth comb when finished drying.
      ● Will the hair pull out of the prosthetic?
      The hairs are sealed into the prosthetic skin from the inside after the punching process is completed. A few stray hairs may pull out initially, but the majority of the hair will never come out.
      ● Why is the hair so long?
      We punch longer hairs into the prosthetic so that our customers have the option of trimming the hair to a shorter length if so desired.
      ● Can I add hair after I've worn my prosthetic?
      Unfortunately, no. Hair must be added during the original manufacturing process, as it must be totally free of dirt and oils in order to seal the hair into the back of the tab.
      ● Will adding hair change the attachment tab?
      The hair punching process will slightly thicken the tab. This may negatively affect adhesion of the tab for some individuals.
      ● Should I shave the area?
      If you are adhering the product using adhesive, then we always recommend shaving or trimming very short. However, leaving hair longer above the edge of the attachment tab will help blend the hair on the prosthetic into your body, creating a very natural look.
