Full thin skin wigs are better known as a full cranial prosthesis wig  or a  full polyurethane a.k.a (PU) wigs, which can be  customized in skin tones such as light brown, medium brown  but are popularly made in  transparent tone which best suits different skin tones- these units are very rarely in stock and ready to ship.

These full thin skin wigs are tediously ventilated by hand no less, using a secure looping technique where the hairs are injected into the thin skin strip, providing the realistic appearance of hair growing naturally out of the wearer’s skin.When worn the thin skin base looks exceptionally natural and provides a realistic hairline.

Who Wears Full Thin Skin Wigs ?

Traditionally,  full thin skin wigs are suitable for wig wearers  with total hair loss (whether from mild to severe alopecia (Alopecia is a type of hair loss that occurs when your immune system mistakenly attacks hair follicles , which is where hair growth begins.Alopecia usually begins when clumps of hair fall out, resulting in totally smooth, round hairless patches on the scalp), natural hair loss in both men (men traditionally will purchase either full pu wig or super thin skin toupees in various base sizes) and women, or those undergoing medical treatment such as chemotherapy and  or who has gone or currently going through a sever case of hypo or hyperthyroidism which has resulted in hair thinning or mild hair loss).


Cap Size Accuracy is Key , when choosing a full thin skin wig cap:

  1. The circumference measurements are important (see how to measure your head chart) – it is always good to measure your head at least 3 times for accuracy.
    If you have  mild to total hair loss and buy custom-made full thin skin wig, then the accuracy of measurements (for both your head and wig) mean that the thin skin wig can be secured without the need for adhesives due to the PU forming a vacuum like seal.

Is Adhesives or Wig Glues Recommended?

It’s not uncommon for full thin skin wig wearers to still use some form of adhesive due to air pockets that can form underneath the wig.
The thin skin (PU) bonds well with adhesives whether glue or tape. It provides longer duration for adhesive bonding. Another benefit of thin skin base wigs is that the removal of adhesive residue is much easier as you don’t have to contend with lace). We highly recommend not using hard bonding adhesive due to the  full polyurethane material of the cap.

Hair Density :

Generally densities of 125%-130% are preferable for full thin skin based wigs and the thin skin base is more durable than lace, so thin skin base wigs last longer (obviously the human hair must be treated with care, so excessive use of heat styling tools should be avoided).


Generally we recommend transparent pu color as that blends exceptionally well with all complexions. With the option to customize these full thin skin wigs you can choose from either : transparent, light brown , medium brown as well dark brown, to better blend with your complexion for undetectable hairline and throughout.
