Transitions Hair Solutions Makes Hairpieces for Women Who've Survived Cancer

There are hundreds of businesses out there that are devoted to providing hairpieces for women who are cancer survivors, but Transitions Hair Solutions is introducing the next generation of products with thanks to 3D printing.

Transitions Hair Solutions operates out of New Jersey as a hair prosthesis provider. What makes its approach so different is that it offers a fully customized approach to producing its scalp and hair prosthetics, rather than opting for a one-size-fits-all approach. In the process, a customer's hair color, texture, length and density are noted, as well as the directions that their hair naturally grows. After the 3D-printed scalp replicas have been completed, ream human hair is woven into the prosthetic, which is then fixed into place with a dermatologically safe adhesive.

Since the caps can be used to cover the whole head or only a small portion of it, these prosthetics are useful for hair loss related to a number of issues, including scalp disorders, burns and more.
