How often should I wash or wear my wig?

 You can wear your wig every day. It is recommended that you wash your wig every 4-5 wears. Our store carries several types of Wig Shampoo to help you care for your wig.

What's the difference between a human hair wig and a synthetic wig?

Usually price as human hair wigs tend to be more expensive as they last longer and they are real. Human hair wigs are more realistic looking than synthetic wigs but human hair wigs require more care. Human hair wigs can last up to 2 years and synthetic wigs last around 6 months. Human hair wigs can be colored or dyed as you like, synthetic wigs cannot. 

 Synthetic wigs come already styled out of the box, human hair wigs need to be styled and maintained. Both wigs are great. It's just based on your own personal preferences and lifestyle as to which would be best for you.You can learn more about what to expect with human hair wigs, at the link below:

Can I use a curling iron or heat on a synthetic wig?

 Heat should never be used on Synthetic Wigs because it can cause damage to the fibres such as melting or matting.

 There are wigs that are synthetic that allow heat and these are chemically treated kanekalon fibre wigs. On these types of artificial wigs, you can safely use heat appliances like curling irons, or straightening irons. See heat friendly fibre wigs below. 

 Heat Resistant Fiber Wigs 

Human hair wigs are often purchased for this reason as well because unlike synthetic wigs, heat can be used freely. Click below to view and order human hair wigs.

Why does my human hair wig look flat?

Unlike your own growing hair on scalp, these human hair pieces can no longer get nourishment and moisture from roots and can appear flat and lifeless as a result. This can easily be remedied by using the right products when washing, styling and storing your wigs.

 

Human hair products should be handled with care. The lifespan of a human hair wig, hairpiece or hair extensions largely depends on how they were worn and taken care of. Using incorrect shampoos/conditioners, frequently using heating tools, dyeing, heavily styling may shorten lifespan.
