I couldn’t help wearing my favorite wig to swimming and it tangled afterwards! I wear this wig daily and for almost a year and I really love it but it become tangling badly. I am not sure why but it just gets tangled very easily…
I am sure you have! Hair growing on the head can get natural conditioning from the human body continuously, while for the human hair on a wig, it has lost the source of natural conditioning. Thus it will tangle and this is normal.
No worries! Let me guide you to detangle the wig and bring it back to life step by step:
1.Combing (a mannequin head, spray bottle, and a wide-tooth comb)
Put the matted wig onto a mannequin head and use needles to secure it. Prepare a spray bottle filled in with 1:20 fabric softener and water.
Spray a little water onto the wig and comb all the knots and tangles through strand by strand. Brush the wig starting at the ends and working upwards to the scalp area until the whole wig is tangle free.
Put some mild temperature water in the sink and cupfuls of sulfate free shampoo. Don’t use hot water for curl wigs because hot water will remove the curls. Soak it in the water for 10-15 minutes. Gently wash the wig to remove all the extra oil or dirt off. Rinse the wig with the water flowing in the direction the hair is laid.
Saturate the unit with deep conditioner and put it in a plastic bag to make sure each hair get moistured. Microwave for 30 seconds or let it sit for an hour or more.
4.Rinse the conditioner. Use a towel to absorb the water and let it air dry.
5.Style it as you like.
When you have wig tangling problem, try these steps and you will be amazed when you bring your favorite wig back to life!

Single tape-in is a pre-taped and ready-to-apply piece. The easy application of single Tape-in could be either a Color Swatch for an exact color match, or it could be a perfect way to add even more volume or colors to your existing UniWigs Hair.
Tape-in hair extensions usually regard as “Salon products”. You may go to a salon and you get them installed because this difficult process typically takes an hour to hour and a half to be done. (Of course you can do them by yourself if you educated by some tutorials). The meaning with those is at home care at least, it’s not much. You can wash them like your own hair. Once you get them put on guys, they are set on your hair and they do not come out until you’re ready to take them out or have them taken out. So you can go shower with them, you go to gym with them, all that stuff you can do with those on your head within four to eight weeks. When your actual hair starts growing out, that is the time when you get them taken out and you can have them put right back in. You do not have to buy brand new tape in extensions, and you can use the exact same ones that you have unless you’ve colored your hair differently but you can re-use those extensions which is awesome. All you have to do is go purchase a new extensions tape. The tape is on them is actually a double-sided tape. One side goes in the extension; one side is to be pressed up against your hair. You can only put the new tape on, that way you are not going to buy other units of hair extensions and just your maintenance of every four to six weeks putting them in.

People choose to wear a wig for various purposes. Some people wear a wig to change up a look, while some some do so for covering hair loss. Other people wear a wig for cosplay or other shows, etc.
When it comes to choosing a wig that is suitable or has a natural look, many people feel lost and don’t know where to start.
Today, we will talk about how to choose a wig for people who are looking for covering hair loss.
When a topper cannot cover the hair loss area effectively, then you might think of wearing a wig instead. Let’s choose a wig following the steps below one by one.
1.What new look are you looking for?
Unlike a topper, wearing a wig will bring a totally new look to you. When you are walking on the street, there must be some people’s hair that you admire and you want to have the same hair style. Now you have a target. However, the hair you admire might not suit you and you need to figure out whether the hair color will match your own skin tone. For example, jet-black hair definitely doesn’t suit a person who has a fair skin tone and a blonde hair doesn’t suit a brown skin tone, either. The first thing you need to know is the range of hair colors that will suit you. This will narrow down your choices a lot to this range of hair colors.
2.What size of a wig do you need?
By measuring the 5 sizes of your head according to the above picture, you will know which size will be yours.
3.What length are you looking for?
From the above picture, you can get a visual idea what length you need.
4.What cap construction do you like?
There are several options for the cap construction including Lace front, Full lace, Glueless full lace, Silk top full lace, and Silk top glueless full lace.
All these cap constructions have a front lace and you need to cut it before wearing. The lace front makes a wig look more natural and helps to blend in with your own skin. You can apply a little glue or hair gel to the front lace and secure it and give yourself a more natural look.
If you are not comfortable with using glue, you can choose the glueless lace wig and use it with combs, clips and a stretch panel for securing the wig.
If you want to wear a pony tail, the full lace wig would be a good option. Since there is no lace at the back for glueless lace wigs, the wig will warp up at the back when you wear a ponytail. With a full lace wig, you can apply a little glue to the back lace to prevent it from warping up.
5.What texture do you like?
Got an idea about which texture you prefer？
I bet you are clear which wig fits you the most, right?
So, this is the first time we are offering free try-on opportunity in this forum. This giveaway will start on 31st, August, 2018. We will offer 5 hair toppers (SKU:PM1811, Color: G4<medium brown>, Length:12″ or 16″) for lucky women who conform to these rules:

Many people want to purchase a topper but have no clue at all about how to choose one and which kind of topper will fit them best. By asking yourself these questions it will help you get somewhere step by step.
1. What is the purpose of buying a topper? Is it just for adding hair volume or to cover the hair thinning area?
To add hair volume, you have many choices about the size. Usually a small size like 5×5 or 5.5×5.5 can provide enough coverage with no problem.
To cover the hair thinning area, you need to measure your own cap size first. Is it 5×5, 6×6, 6×7, 8×9 or even bigger? After knowing your cap size, you can narrow your choices to a few specific hair topper options.
2. What kind of base do you like?
Usually there are 3 kinds of bases on the market, and they are Lace base, Monofilament base and Silk top base.
Monofilament base allows a smooth skin base top that resembles your own natural scalp. A mono-top mimics the look of natural hair growth and provides hair parting for the greatest versatility in styling.
This is another great choice if you want to ensure that the front hairline simulates your own. It is very light-weight and breathable which is perfect for hot days!
This is the most realistic scalp the market has to offer today. It perfectly hides the knots and you don’t need to worry about any other techniques to make the knots invisible or less visible.
Silk top base has three layers of bases to create the most natural hairline. Thus it requires a certain technique to make it lay flat on the head and look natural on you. It is not recommended that beginners choose a silk top base. On the other hand, lace base is most breathable and easy to fit the head shape. However, you need glue to secure it in the front, hence it is also not the best option for beginners. All in all, Monofilament base might be a good choice for beginners.
3. What hair material do you like? Human hair or Synthetic fiber?
Human hair is just like your own hair and it is the choice of 90% customers. For human hair, you also can dye it, flatten it, and curl it. However, synthetic fiber is more economic.
4. What texture do you like?
You can choose the texture that you like. It has many options like natural straight, body wave, loose wave, curl, etc.
5. What color do you choose?
Not like a full wig, a slight difference of the color will not matter. For a topper, you need to pick a color that will exactly match with your own bio hair and this fact makes this step the most difficult one. First you can pick one or two close colors and compare them with your bio hair color by checking the photos on the website. The reviews and the pictures that customers posted. If you still cannot verify the color, you can contact their customer service desk to ask for some pictures of the hair sample and actual hair color to get more references.
6. What length do you like?
You can get a visual idea about what length you need through below picture.
7. What density do you need?
Usually 130% density can satisfy the needs of 90% of the customers. However, some people prefer really lush and full hair volume. In that case, then 150% or 180% can be your choices.
After answering all these questions step by step, you can get a clear idea what hair toppers will fit you the best.
As I hung up the phone, a wave of dread overtook the perfect joy I had just experienced. My oldest son had called to let me know that he planned to ask his girlfriend, his soulmate, to marry him. All mothers pray for this moment-that their children will meet the right person to share their life with. And, I was beyond thrilled about this news. Visions of a perfect wedding flashed through my mind. Suddenly, they stopped abruptly on my head-my hair, actually. I couldn’t see the beauty of the bride and groom. I only envisioned the wedding photos and how I would ruin them with my messed-up hair. That was the way I saw myself-a balding photobomber who ruined every photo, every video. This moment that should have been celebrated turned into panic.
Over two decades ago, about 18 months after the birth of my second son, I began dealing with permanent hair loss. Most women experience hair shedding after they deliver a baby due to changes in their hormonal chemistry, but that gradually reverses itself and they regain any lost hair. It’s not permanent. However, that wasn’t the case for me. My hair just didn’t stop shedding, and what came out never returned. So, I went to see my OB/GYN and she referred me to a connective tissue specialist for an appraisal of my condition. The doctor took a scalp biopsy and told me that I had Androgenic Alopecia-a genetic or pattern baldness experienced by both men and women. It is inherited from one or both parents and can be triggered by hormones at any time after puberty. Hair is lost at the front, top, and the crown of the scalp. The hair loss can vary from thinning to complete baldness. It is estimated that around 50% of women over the age of 65 experience female-pattern baldness.
Now knowing that I had Androgenic Alopecia, I had to slowly come to grips with the fact that most of the hair I lost wouldn’t be coming back. I stopped coloring my hair because I could see that the chemicals in the hair dye caused me additional issues-weakening the hand strands and creating more fallout. Having a fully gray head at that age left me looking older than I was and older than my friends. But, I just didn’t see any other alternative. I struggled to style my progressively thinning hair, pulling it back in a sparse ponytail for many years and wearing fabric headbands to hide my thinning hairline. Yet every day, I knew it was getting worse, and I wouldn’t be able to camouflage it any longer.
As it turned out, the engagement announcement was the moment that led me to search for a resolution to my problem. Hitting YouTube hard, I watched dozens of videos about hair loss, which led me to wigs and wig review videos. Seeing that wigs were NOT the sweaty, molded-cap designs they were in years past, I started to entertain the idea of purchasing one. Certainly, I would have to do it quickly if I was going to find a wig and get used to wearing one before my son’s wedding. I purchased my first wig. I immediately fell in love with her, and she was in a price range that seemed reasonable for a first wig. The day she arrived, I was SO nervous! What if I looked terrible in a wig? I would have to attend the wedding and find places to hide to avoid the photographer. I know that sounds so vain, but women count on their hair to create their look. Without it, you have to redefine your identity. It’s not easy to do without your hair!
Wearing a wig to my son’s wedding gave me courage and built back up the self-esteem I had lost so many years ago. I got many compliments on my “hair,” and when the wedding festivities were over, I was ready to add to my alternative hair collection.
That’s when I discovered Uniwigs, specifically the LaVivid Collection. I began wearing LIZ, a short bob with silky Kanekalon fibers. Her color, Java Shimmered, was simply gorgeous! It looked like I had just walked out of the salon with a new haircut, color, and highlights! I also own Natalie in the color Shadow Chestnut, and I adore her too!
It is amazing to me how something as easy as wearing a wig can boost a person’s self-confidence so greatly. I only wish I had known how incredible this was going to feel years ago, not having to suffer so long.
