There are some things that you need to put into consideration to come up with the schedule that works for you and your hair. You need to consider the growth rate of your hair (i.e., new growth), your hair texture, your level of patience with your hair, and how often you style your hair.

1. New growth
The best time to do a retouch is after at least eight weeks. That will help in avoiding the overlapping of chemicals to the previously relaxed hair. Hair typically grows about a ½ inch a month. Waiting till you have at least an inch of new growth before relaxing is a good idea to consider. This will ensure the chemical is only applied to the new growth and allow enough room for it. If you only let ¼ inch of hair grow before going ahead to relax your hair, you run the risk of damage.

2. Hair texture
Your hair texture may also dictate how often you want to relax your hair. In some cases, if your hair texture is coarse you will feel the growth within a short time.

3. Level of patience
When you have mostly relaxed your hair over an inch of new growth, styling and caring for your hair can become a challenge. Washing, conditioning, and styling will all require that you spend extra time and extra attention to avoid breaking and damaging your hair. Considerably, it’s easier to want to retouch your hair with a relaxer more often. But relaxing your hair often, less than eight weeks interval, may cause even more breakage and damage to your hair.

4. Hairstyling schedule
Your hairstyling routine is the last point you should consider when thinking about a relaxer schedule. How do you like to wear your hair daily? If you like your hair to be super straight and hanging down, you may want to stick to a rigid relaxer touch-up schedule like 6 – 8 weeks. If you are okay with big, fluffy hair and wavy roots, then you can go ahead and create a more extend relaxer schedule for your hair.

Relaxing your hair after removing a hair extension
Hair that has just been removed from extensions is usually weak and lacks in protein, so to go ahead and relax it the same day can cause an inevitable disaster. When you remove your hair from extensions, you should first detangle your hair, wash it, and then condition it with a protein deep-conditioner and wait till at least, one week before relaxing. Also, when washing your hair, ensure you wash your hair in sections or in single braids to prevent matting and tangles. Giving your hair one week after removing an extension before relaxing will also help your scalp recuperate.

Here are also some things you should know before and after relaxing your hair.
1. Relaxed hair is weaker than natural hair and therefore you should only relax your hair if it’s healthy. If your hair is already fragile, relaxing it can damage it severely.

2. Do not relax your hair immediately or too soon after you have washed it or agitate the scalp. Relax your hair at least one week after you’ve washed it. That will give your scalp enough time to generate enough natural lubricant to help to protect it during the relaxing process.

3. You should always use a hair relaxer that is gentle on your scalp and hair. Relaxers come in 3 strengths: mild, regular, and super. Understanding the texture of your hair before choosing a relaxer will help you make a suitable choice.

4. Avoid all curly hairstyles a week before relaxing and ensure your hair is straight and detangled.

6. After relaxing your hair, do not install a weave or any braids for up to 2 weeks, because your hair at this point cannot withstand the tension caused by extensions.

7. Relaxing hair usually leads to dryness, so endeavor to moisturize your hair regularly.

It’s always advisable to consider time more than the amount of growth when it comes to relaxing hair. Always make use of a relaxer that is gentle and will always leave your hair strong and bouncy.

Remember also, that treating your hair is necessary to maintain the protein and moisture balance. As we know, relaxers work by breaking down some of the protein bonds in our hair. If hair that is protein deficient is relaxed, it will become fragile or even damaged after the relaxer process. A fragile or damaged hair cannot withstand daily wear and tear and is susceptible to breakage. It is, therefore, necessary to prepare for relaxing by ensuring your hair is not lacking in protein. Hair should be washed and deep-conditioned with a protein conditioner a week before it is relaxed.


The beauty of hair pieces (extensions and toppers) is in their ability to blend not only with your natural hair color and density but also your hair length. Making sure your hairpieces blend with your natural hair length will make it look more natural and undetectable.

Sometimes, hairpieces come too long or wispy at the ends, which makes them look detectable when there are worn. Cutting or trimming your hair extensions and toppers allows you to customize them exactly to your wants and needs and also enables them to blend better into your own hair.

Usually, we would recommend that you take your hairpieces to a professional stylist to trim, but we are aware that that’s presently almost impossible due to the current pandemic. Therefore, we have developed this article that explains how you can cut or trim your hairpieces by yourself, right in your comfort of your home.

To start, you should ensure that you:

  1. Have sharp hair cutting scissors. Using blunt or kitchen scissors (or any other kind) can cause breakage and split ends.
  2. Make sure that your hair extension or topper is clean and dry. A wet hair extension or topper will prevent the hair scissors from trimming steadily and accurately.
  3. Put your extension or topper where they will normally go.
  4. Have a mirror large enough to see your full hair length with your hairpieces.
  5. For extensions, you can level them. You can use a Sharpie or number the clips.
  6. Blend your extensions or topper into your hair by straightening your hair with your hairpiece already in place.

Repeat the same action all round to achieve a more blended result.

You can also part your hair down the middle and bring the sections to the front, to enable you trim them adequately. Do not forget to also chop in after cutting, to make it look less blunt and more natural.

• First and foremost, as you as you buy a suitable wig (lace wig, full lace wig) for your personality, you need to buy the proper accessories for caring your wig such as wig comb, wig brush, wig shampoo, wig stand, and conditioner.

• Making your wigs tables-free, spray conditioner on it and brush it. Also, you need to comb your wigs starting at the ends, not the roots.

• As wigs are delicate, store it in a closet or in a closed space. Keep them on a wig stand at room temperature for its long durability.

• To make your wigs stylish by using hair spray formulated.

• When you spray your wigs with cool water and brush with a wig brush, the volume of the wigs get reduced.

• If you have a synthetic hair wig, it is necessary not to use any heat sources like a blow dryer, a curling iron, or a hot roller.

• Always wash your wigs after 12/15 wearings. Guidelines vary for washing your wig. Generally, it should be washed every 30 wearings or four to six weeks, but it also depends on your lifestyle. If you’re around heavy smoke, perfume or strong odors of any kind, you should wash it more often.

Is Synthetic Wig Really Not As Good As Human Hair Wig?

As we enter the market to purchase the wig we desire, we are faced by a variety of options and suddenly, the answer doesn’t seem so clear anymore. Should we opt for the synthetic wig, or go for the human hair wig instead? Or is the heat-friendly synthetic wig the solution to our hair woes? To prevent the confusion from building up, it is better to do some research beforehand, and know which wig works best for us.

Human hair wigs are just as the name entails – they are made of natural, human hair strands. You might have heard about hair donations by people for a good cause. That is mostly how the natural hair ended up gracing the wigs. The greatest charm of these wigs is how real they look; with no unnatural shine and the ability to bounce around like natural hair, wearing a human hair wig is feels just like having your natural hair back. On the other hand, synthetic hair wigs are made from man-made fibers, which tend to imitate human hair, and mostly are indistinguishable unless looked at very closely. These wigs are perfectly styled, with the ability to retain their look after any and all activities.

There is a popular opinion of synthetic wigs not being as good as human hair wigs. The opinion is certainly not unfounded, because human hair wigs bring with themselves an abundance of advantages:

  • The All-Natural Look

Considering human hair wigs are made from actual hair, they appear no different than the time when you actually had hair. Resembling the texture and feel of real hair, the wig exclaims all things natural.

Being made of human hair also means the hair acts just like normal hair would; stylish as ever sometimes, whilst untamed otherwise. However, this also means it can be styled as any way we want, something we aren’t able to achieve with synthetic hair. Whether we want to don a perm today or go for a straightened look, the human hair wig makes it fairly easy and simple to achieve any of these styles.

A great plus point in human hair wigs is the large variety of textures, hues, and lengths on offer. We can search entire markets and will eventually land on a wig which completes resembles the hair we had earlier, making it difficult for others to tell the difference between the hair we had before, and the hair we have now. Win-win? We think so!

  • Get those Pops of Color

Since the wig has human hair, it can be easily dyed without any side effects, unlike synthetic wigs. This means just because we have lost our hair, doesn’t mean we give up on the little things we love. Dying our hair in a variety of colors, from ombre highlights to purple edges, the sky is the limit with human hair wigs. We simply have to search for a hair stylist proficient in coloring human hair wigs.

  • Apt for Sensitive Skins

When we think about wearing wigs, the idea makes us scratch our heads. We often find ourselves wondering: How will the wig be attached? Will it feel comfortable?

With human hair wigs, there is no need to worry about itching or rash on the scalp because the wig has a very high probability of adapting comfortably to the head. Thus, making the human hair wig an especially good option for those with sensitive skins.

  • Long-Lasting

Human hair wigs are highly durable. Known to last up to a year, they are a good option for those who wish for a long-lasting remedy to hair loss. On the other hand, synthetic wigs merely last for 4-6 months.

People opt for human hair wigs not only due to the advantages brought forth by this type of wig, but also the disadvantages of the synthetic wig. The synthetic wig although is a product of newest technologies and imitates human hair, it has a certain unnatural shine to it which makes it noticeable (especially in the sunlight), giving onlookers the feeling that the person is indeed wearing a wig. Sensitive to heat, synthetic wigs are easily harmed which makes styling them very difficult. They usually come in a particular style (e.g. curled, etc.) and eventually bounce back to their initial form, regardless of the hairstyling you practice on it. Even if you wash your hair, as soon as it dries up, the wig returns to its original style.

However, just because the synthetic wig is refrained to exhibiting a particular look, does not necessarily mean a downside of the wig. For people who struggle with time and energy to manage the upkeep of their hair, synthetic wigs are a blessing in disguise. There is no need to take out time for styling the hair as it comes styled, always. Another charming feature of the synthetic wigs is the low maintenance. They should be washed after 4-6 wears, unlike human hair wigs which, being human hair, need to be washed after each wear. Furthermore, human hair wigs also require proper shampooing, oiling, and conditioning – which may pose as another hassle.

Although synthetic wigs cannot be dyed, why go through the trouble of dyeing when you can find an abundance of colored and widely styled wigs? Simply try the wig on, and if it suits your face, make the purchase. Synthetic wigs are cheap as compared to human hair wigs, and thus make for an easy-buy.

Therefore, the question of which wig is better cannot be answered so easily as each has their own sets of pros and cons. For people who want a low maintenance, easy to control wig – the synthetic wig is the way to go. For those who want their hair to look as natural as possible, the human hair wig should be opted for. For the ones who reside in cities with extreme weather conditions, the human hair wig may prove uncontrollable most of the times, thus a man-made synthetic wig might be better suited. For ones who know their hair loss is permanent, the human hair wig is a better investment due to enhanced durability, and value for money.

Thus, the answer to which wig is better varies across individuals. What matters is, which wig is best suited to us, and our conditions and needs. Remember, although our hair is an important part of us, it surely isn’t the only aspect which represents us. Thus, whatever wig you decide to purchase, don it with confidence, and you are bound to shine wherever you go!

Also, getting your wig styled by yourself before the event proper would not just save costs for you. This article would clearly explain how you can style your wigs whether synthetic other human hair without having to visit the stylist.

To style your wig, you need to first ascertain the origin of the wig: some wigs of some particular origin would be best styled in a particular way. Synthetic hair would not be styled the same way as the human hair.

For styling your human hair wig, you need the wig, a mannequin head, hair rollers or curling iron and a wig brush or comb.

The following steps would guide you in styling your human hair wig:

  • Wear the wig over the mannequin head and arrange it until you get a perfect fit as it would be on a human head.
  • Cut off the excess lace that comes out at the front of the wig. The lace must be trimmed to achieve a natural look. Take extra care in cutting off the lace so you do not trim the wig. For the process to be achieved, there is need for your hand to be steady while working with a good pair of scissors.
  • While on this, cut a small portion at a time. This requires a lot of patience to get a perfect work done. Trying to cut off all the parts of the lace may not come out well.
  • After cutting off the lace, define the parting. If you would want it to be parted at the centre or side of the hair, use your fine-toothed comb to do the parting neatly. Keep reinforcing the separation with the comb.
  • Wet the hair to make for easy styling. Wetting the hair is best for achieving hairstyles like perm rod sets or rollers sets. You can apply hair lotion or styling foam to make the hair smooth. Remember to be gentle while handling the hair.
  • For a curly hairstyle, use hair rollers to roll the hair and set it with a hair spray or diluted setting lotion. The setting lotion would keep the hair moist and makes the hair adhere to the effect of the roll when the hair dries.
  • If you have rough and fuzzy edges, use your wet hands to smoothen the edges and apply a good hair oil, shea butter is recommended. The oil gives the hair a natural shine. If you would want to bring out the baby hair, it is at this stage that you pick the front hair and brush it in the direction of your choice while applying edge control.
  • When you are done with the above step, air dry the wig. Do not use a blow dryer to dry your wig. Blow dryer would dry out the wig and subsequently damage it.
  • Remove the rollers when the hair is properly dried. The curls would remain.
  • Apply a shinning spray to the wig to add to its shine.

Human hair wig can be restyled using a flat iron, curling iron, blow dryer or electric rollers on medium heat. It can also be dyed, bleached or straightened to look like the natural hair. Only make sure to use a good conditioner to extend the life span of the wig.

Synthetic wigs

It doesn’t take much effort to maintain synthetic wigs. This is because they come with their styles. You can buy and use your wig for a long period of time without having to restyle it. It holds the style for a long time. When synthetic wigs are washed, the styling is not lost. It bounces back to the way it was once it is dried. This implies that you do not need to worry too much about styling your synthetic wigs as you would do to the human hair wigs.

Despite the fact that you do not need style to your synthetic wig often, there are simple procedures you can follow to make your wig looking new. To style your synthetic wig, you need a leave-in condition, wig shampoo, wide-toothed comb, a wig stand, a towel, a mannequin head, a spray bottle filled with water, and a blow dryer.

These steps would help you in styling your synthetic wigs:

  • Wash and dry the wig

Detangle the hair with a wide-toothed comb. Wash the wig properly and dry it on the wig stand. Any other tall item around the house can serve, if you do not have a wig stand.  Do not wring the wig and as it may cause tangling.  Do not comb the wig fully in the wet state; it may stretch and tangle the wig when it dries. Allow the wig enough time to dry so that the wig cap can dry as well.

  • Styling

When the wig is properly dried, place it on a mannequin head and secure it tightly. Using this tool would help you concentrate on the sides of the heads as you would do to a real head. Use your fingers to arrange the hairs the way you would want and hold down the style with a shaping cream. You can part the hair if your top wig is a monofilament and has not been parted before. Use a wide-toothed comb to make the part while spraying some water.

  • Use a blow dry on a low heat setting to dry the root toward the styled direction. Make sure not to over heat the blow-dry else, it burns the fibre.
  • Use your toothed comb to detangle once again. There may be need to carry the comb along with you so you would detangle the hair once the need arises especially if your wig is a long one.

Do not use styling tools like curling iron or straightener on your synthetic wigs as they are not meant to withstand a hot temperature.

Now you can style your wigs, feel free to carry out the experiments.


I bet you already know that there are so many hair types but you are unsure of the type of hair you have. This piece would solve the mystery for you. It would uncover the different types of hair and how to identify them making it easier to determine your hair type without stress. Most times, hair types are not discussed because no matter the individual’s hair type, there are certain things she must do to take good care of her hair.

There are different hair typing systems such as LIOS, Andre Walker Hair typing system and FIA’s hair typing system. Of all the typing systems, Andre Walker’s tying system is the most popular and commonly used. Note that this does not imply that her typing system is the best. This article would touch the different hair typing systems

• Andre Walker Hair Typing System
In his book titled “Andre Talks Hair”, Andre established his hair typing system. She defined four hair types:

Type 1: Straight hair
Generally, Type 1 hairs are straight in nature. Andre further classifies them into three segments:

Type1A – the straight hair type that is very thin, fine and very soft. Its shine is also very noticeable.
Type 1B – this type of straight hair has a medium texture. It also has more volume than type 1A
Type 1C – this straight hair resists curly styling. It also has a coarse feel as compared to types 1A and B.

Type 2: The wavy Hair
Type 2 hairs are moderate in oil content. They are not too oily and not very dry. They are in between the Type 1 and Type 3.

The categories include:
Type 2A: This wavy hair is not just thin but fine. It accepts any styling – you can easily curl or straighten it.
Type 2B: The waves of this hair type assumes the shape of the head and sit that a well-fitted crown.
Type 2C: This wavy hair is coarse and tends to frizz easily.

Type 3: The curly hair
Type 3 hair is curly and the hair texture is a clear “S” shaped curl pattern. It is also noticeable in this hair type that it doesn’t shine as the Type 2 or Type 2 hairs. It has its categories as:

Type 3A – This curly hair is shiny and loose.
Type 3B – The amount of curl it has is at a moderate level ranging from bouncy ringlets to tight corkscrews.
Type 3C – This curly hair has tight coils or curls that look like the corkscrews.

Type 4: The Kinky hair
This is a full tightly curled hair otherwise known as kinky. It is extremely curled and fragile. Most times, kinky looks coarse but the truth is that it is strands of fine hair densely packed together. This is the type of hair commonly found in African Americans’ hair. It is further classified as:

Type 4A- this kinky has full tight coils. When you stretch it, it has a visible “S” pattern just like type 3 curly hair.
Type 4B – this kinky does not have a well-defined pattern like Type 4A. The face appearance is like the letter “Z”. That has sharp angles at its bends.

• The LIOS Hair Typing System
It wouldn’t be a falsehood if you say that LIOS Hair Typing System is dying slowly even though many naturals advocate for it more than the popular Andre Walker Hair Typing System.
The LIOS hair typing system is used by many because of its simplicity.

This hair typing system defined hair using these three attributes
1. Hair pattern
2. Hair strand size
3. Hair texture

Hair pattern
The pattern of the hair is defined by the letters LOIS:
L – You are said to be pattern “L” if your hair has so many right angles and bends almost without a curve.
O – You are said to be pattern “O” if the coils or curls on your hair are very significant and look like the letter “O”.
I – If there is no visible curves or bends on your hair and the hair lies flat on your head, you are a pattern “I”.
S – Those with pattern “S” have their hair strands as “S” shapes waves or curls.
Note that it is possible for one to have more than one LOIS hair pattern. In this case, you can combine the LOIS letters that define your hair to determine the hair pattern.

Hair Strand Sizes
This means identifying the size of your hair strand using a strand of thread. It is classified as:
Thin hair strand – when your strand is smaller than a piece of sewing thread
Medium hair strand – When your strand is the size of the piece of sewing thread
Thick hair strand – when the strand of your hair is larger than the piece of the sewing thread.

Hair texture
The hair texture can be any of the following:
Thready – This has a bright shine but with a low sheen. This hair texture easily gets wet and doesn’t frizz easily.
Wiry – This texture has a glossy appearance but little shine. It is difficult for the hair to get fully wet.
Cottony – This texture frizz easily. it has a low sheen and shines brightly.
Silky – This also has a low sheen but with a bright high shine. It gets wet easily.
Spongy – this hair texture has a high sheen but a low shine. It absorbs water easily just like a sponge.
Note that to accurately depict your LIOS hair type, you must wash your hair thoroughly to ensure that no hair products are left on the hair. Alternatively, you can remove a strand from your hair, wash and rinse it in cold water. Allow it to dry without touching it and get your LOIS hair type with it.

• Fia’s Hair Typing System
This typing system seems to spread through Andre Walker Typing system and incorporates some of the LOIS Hair Typing system as well.

FIA’s Hair Typing system is classified into three
1. Curls definition – this is the same as in Andre Walker system’s Types 1 – 4.
2. The general appearance of most of the hair stands – this is similar to the hair strand sizes in the LOIS. The difference is the terminology.
3. The volume of the hair – this checks the volume of the hair. To test this, tie your hair in a ponytail and measure the circumference using a soft tape.

If the circumference is less than 2 inches, you have a thin volume
Circumference between 2 – 4 inches depicts a normal volume
Circumference greater than 4 inches has a thick volume.

With the above information, it would be a piece of cake to figure out your hair type using any of the given typing systems.

How to Style Wigs with Bangs

“Every girl’s best accessory” has changed over time and for this decade, it is undoubtedly the wig. Different styles with different colors and lengths have flooded the world’s market and can be found in the room of every girl who is considered stylish. And if you are not on this train, really, what are you waiting for?

Maybe you do not have so much of a variety of wigs, but you want to look different at every event. Why not? This is very possible when you style your wigs; creating new looks from what you believe is a limited number. Different styles can be made but this article is focused on styling your wigs with bangs.

Why should you style with bangs?
The most obvious reason is that bangs are always in style. Think back to all the movies you have watched for at least the past 2 decades; actresses, celebrities and everyone in between have worn bangs at some point and totally killed it. Bangs have had their peak seasons but one thing is certain; they have always been and would always remain stylish. So, depending on the shape of your face, you can always find the right size and style of bangs to fit and accentuate your facial features.

Reasons to style your wigs with bangs
We have agreed that bangs are stylish and special, but why should you style them on your wigs? There are a couple of reasons actually, but we would be looking at just a few of them
• Bangs are known to help frame, shape and accentuate the face.
• They are used to cover up forehead and facial skin issues e.g. pimples, acne, and reactions.
• They remove the need for a frontal lace and would make your wig look as natural as possible.
• In fact, most people believe that bangs provide a younger look as it was most common with teen idols in the ’90s who needed to always look young and appealing.

Procedure for styling your wigs with bangs
To style your wig with bangs, a couple of steps must be taken. It is essential to have your selected wig ready and decide on one of the 3 popular styles; the side-swept bang, the curtain bangs and the most common which is the straight bang. Each of them has different ways to make and can be more specific to different facial shape (more on this later).
The only common thing with all three styles is that you need to wear your wig and pack up your hair in a bun before you begin. Also, remove the hair from the bundle gradually, rather than all at once so you can fit it nicely and gradually into the style you want. Ensure you have a mirror and sharp scissors so your work can go on smoothly.

1) For the side-swept bang

side-swept bang
side-swept bang

The side-swept bang is a one-sided bang with your front hair made to be arched at a particular angle on the face. After doing the procedure stated above, you should

• Use a small-sized comb (e.g. the rat tail comb) to comb and straighten the hair in front.
• Choose between your right and left side for the bangs to be at. This is a personal decision and should be determined by your more photogenic side, better eyesight, etc. (Note: your bangs should cover your non-flattering side).
• Next, pull your bangs on the side you want them to be at, hold them in place and make a cut at an angle, preferably around 45 degrees. Continue to comb and snip until you achieve your desired result. Watch out for any uneven ends.

2) For the curtain bangs

The curtain bangs are unique from the side-swept bang as they are usually longer, not angular and you might not be particular about achieving even ends on either side. Following the basic steps already stated, you also need to

• Comb the hair you plan to use for the bang, straighten it up and then cut up to the length that you desire.
• Make a defined parting either at the center or any point across the bang and sweep each half to its side.
The advantage of this style is that you can change the “curtain” by increasing the amount on either side depending on your preference.

3) For the straight bangs

This is the most popular style and there are a lot of reasons why it is so; it is a simple look and extremely flattering. Even though it looks simple, it requires as much effort as the other types but may be properly packed into an updo if need be too. So, it acts as a 2-in-1 style. Besides, it is the style that makes wigs look as real as human hair and is the most protective of the forehead while covering receding hairlines and messy eyebrows. The procedure for this style includes

• Comb the bang and make sure it is as straight as possible.
• Place the hair between your fingers and cut the hair in tiny snips (This would ensure that you have the opportunity to quickly correct an error if it arises).
• Continue combing and snipping and ensure the bang is as straight and even as possible.

Tips for choosing the right bangs

1) Side swept bangs
This style helps to cover up unflattering sides of the face and may also add length to the face. Therefore, they are ideal for shapes that are fuller in the middle e.g. round, square, heart and diamond-shaped faces.

2) Curtain bangs
Curtain bangs are also very flattering and lengthening for short shaped faces. If your face shape is a good fit for the side-swept look, then congratulations, the curtain bangs are also a great option for you. So, the round, square, diamond and heart-shaped faces can enjoy the curtain bangs too.

3) Straight bangs
While the former styles soften the facial features, the straight bangs tend to make the face even more angular. For example, a triangle-shaped face would be best suited for the straight bang so that there would be less focus on the lower side of the face and also give the needed width to the top of the face.

Overall, bangs are beautiful hairstyles that always seem to trend. So why not use this knowledge to style your wigs as such and beautify yourself in the process?

While it is possible that your wig could suffer from overuse or become dry and frizzy from the lack of care, it is also possible that all of these could be a factor of underuse. A lot of times people have wigs and really only use them on occasions because they want to have a change of look. While this is applaud-worthy, you should also consider proper storage of your wigs when they’re not in use for long periods of time. So, it is safe to say that your wig could get dry and frizzy and even tangled because of neglect and improper storage.

Usually, wigs are better off on wig heads and as this gives it a lot of ventilation and really just keeps the wig in place without fear of tangle. However, when wigs stay on wig heads for long periods of time, they could get dusty, dry up and become frizzy. You would need to get it washed and properly moisturized to get back its shine. It’s the same with your natural hair when you neglect it for long periods on end, it is likely to become coarse and dry and you may start losing your hair in the process. Everything needs an amount of commitment and care and wigs are definitely part of them.

• Moisture
Your natural hair is affixed to your head and your hair gets a lot of moisture from your body. You definitely cannot say the same for wigs which are more artificial. Whether synthetic or a human hair wig, they all need moisture to maintain a certain level of shine and texture. While human hair wigs are more natural and may need a smaller amount of products, with synthetic wigs, you will need to go the whole nine yards. So, something of importance is moisturizing your wig as much as possible to keep it from getting dry.

When we talk of moisture, we don’t just mean products as a lot of products on the wig may just make it heavy and dirty. What you need is light products just to maintain moisture without affecting its texture. There are instances where people go around with water in a spray bottle and just spray it on their hair during the day just to maintain the moisture in the hair in harsh weather conditions. This isn’t a bad idea because using a lot of products on the hair could be disastrous to the wig.

• Styling


This is another factor that can make your wig dry and frizzy. Apart from wrong storage and lack of moisture, excessive heat styling can be a problem for your wig. Sometimes when you subscribe to heat styling every other day, the wig could get burnt as this is a natural effect and when this happens, getting the wig to its original state may be difficult. Curling machines, straighteners, heat rollers cause a lot of frizz by burning the hair. So, you should as much as possible avoid a lot of heat styling and just let your wig breathe.

• Hair Products
Granted that there are hair products that can do wonders for the hair, there are also a lot more that can cause irreparable damages. This is what you need to avoid. There are a lot of chemicals and alcohols in hair products and your goal should be to avoid those because they strip the hair of oils and leave it dry and therefore causing frizz. So as much as possible when shopping for hair products for your wig, try to stick to nature-based products as these are mild to the hair. Remember that a lot of products on the hair will leave it looking greasy and heavy. Invest in detanglers and anti-frizz serums that you could apply after shampooing your hair.

These will help you keep the wig in good condition. Ultimately, watch what you put on your wig. If you can’t use it on your natural hair, chances are that they are not suitable for your wig.

• Care Generally
A lot of times dirt accumulation in the hair could cause frizz and dryness and that’s why it is advised to wash your wigs frequently. If you do not do this, you risk having problems because your natural hair underneath the wig also suffers. Keeping the wig clean is for yourself entirely. When hair is washed frequently, whether wig or natural hair, it will eventually develop split ends so you should get your wig trimmed occasionally so as to keep it in good condition. You should think of your wigs as an investment that you ought to take seriously.

Wigs are an essential part of our daily lives, at least for those who indulge and like every other thing we hold dear, we should take out time to care for them properly. That being said, adherence to these tips will elongate the lifespan of your wig and keep it looking new.
