The problem with shopping for hair replacement systems and hair pieces online is often there are TOO many choices. A simple search for “hair replacement” will bring up millions of results, including hundreds of websites all trying to sell you the best products for the lowest prices.
How Do You Choose?
When looking for a hair replacement company online, the first thing you should consider is their selection. Sure they may have hair pieces for less than $100, but will you be able to get the size and color you need? Next, you need to be wary of the delivery time. Many companies will be happy to sell you a hair piece and neglect to tell you that it will take 4-6 weeks in production before you ever see it. Another important factor to consider is the return policy. Will the hair replacement company fully refund your money with no questions asked if you’re dissatisfied with the quality of the hair replacement? If not, you may want to look elsewhere because it’s a sure fire sign that they don’t stand behind their products. Lastly, be sure to consider the quality of their human hair extensions online shop. A website that looks like something out of the 90’s with blinking graphics and sound effects may be a sign for consumers to be wary. The fact is if a hair replacement company is having success on the web, there is no doubt investing in a quality website will be a first priority, so be very cautious of websites that look like they’ve been neglected. That may be a sign the company isn’t giving their Internet business 100%.
Things to Avoid
Don’t be dazzled by before and after photos and testimonials. This is one of the oldest tricks in the book, and not just in the hair replacement industry. Before and after photos have been circulating since the 1970s and beyond, and it’s pretty easy for any hair replacement company to go out and find a handful of great before and after shots to place on their site. Even genuine before and after photos are heavily “doctored” and can’t be fully taken at face value. Hair replacement companies hire professional models for photo shoots and make sure every detail is perfect. This isn’t a good reflection of reality because it’s simply not natural. The other big thing to avoid is “programs”. Many hair replacement companies will try to trick you into their program by charging a modest monthly fee in exchange for you agreeing to buy x amount of hair pieces. This seems great, as you get a reduced rate, but these programs often push a lesser quality product and force the customer to make a long term commitment. Again, not a sign of a hair replacement company that stands behind their product.
