For the best results and the prolonged life of your purchase, we recommend:
Before/after wearing, spray the fibre-hair lightly with some protection spray, then gently remove any knots and tangles with the fingers.
Scrunched permed models MUST NEVER BE BRUSHED --- arrange instead using fingers only or a wide tooth Afro comb. Straight or Waved style may be brushed through, using a WIG BRUSH.
If worn daily wash every 10 - 14 days, otherwise once a month is OK.
Because fibre-hair is non-porous it does not need to be washed as frequently as our own human hair. To freshen your wig/hairpiece, please follow the steps below:
1. Prior to washing, remove all knots and tangles paying particular attention to the nape section. Permed and extra dry models should firstly be sprayed with some lubricant oil and worked through.
2. Fill a hand bowl with cold/tepid water and a little wig shampoo and very gently agitate your wig or hairpiece back and forth, in the water.
3. Gently rinse in clear cold/tepid water. A careful of fabric softener can be added to the water to help condition the fibre.
4. Pat gently on a towel to remove excess water.
5. Place on a block to dry naturally.
6. When completely dry, spray some protection spray and style.
Many fibre wigs are produced on a machine wefted and net top foundation. With many of these styles you will notice backcombing on the root area. This is called Permatease which gives root lift where required.
Depending on the style, some wigs are produced with a skin parting. This is where the hair is drawn through a skin coloured material to give a more natural look.
Many wigs nowadays are produced with a monofilament top, which is constructed with either a double or single layer of monofilament, this gives a smoother, softer feel at the top and crown, the hair/fibre is hand knotted into this area giving the appearance of hair growing from the scalp. With monofilament tops you can change the parting slightly.
Some wigs are made on a hand knotted foundation instead of machine wefted. Hand knotted foundaitons are made from a 5 way stretch net which is very light weight and the hair/fibre is hand knotted into the netting.
Most wigs come on a standard 54 cm foundation. Some wigs do come in petite sizes. All wigs have elastic adjusters in the nape area, which can be pulled in to make the wig smaller or let out to increase the size.
Some wigs are constructed with polyurethane tape tabs which are normally located at the front and sides of a wig. Double sided mono tape can be used on these areas for added security.
