Human Hair Wigs
Our human hair wigs are made of the highest quality. Appropriately maintained, it will give you many different styles and looks for many years. To help you ensure the longevity of your human hair wigs, here are some tips:
Washing your human hair wig:
- You should clean your human hair wigs at least once a week depending on conditions and how often it is used. Although human hair wigs are made of real human hair, it lacks the nutrient oils that the scalp produces. There for it is best to use products specifically made for human hair wigs.
- Place the wig on a wig stand. Brush from ends to roots, make sure to brush in small sections. Brush out any tangles before wetting or washing.
- Make sure to use cold to luke warm water only. Spray wig carefully, always start from the ends and work your way up to the roots. Do not brush. Press any excess water from the hair using your fingers.
- Place a small amount of wig shampoo on the palm of your hand. Gently press it into hair shafts starting at the ends and working up to about two inches away from the root. Let it settle for about a minute. Rinse using running luke warm water. Gently squeeze out excess water. Do not brush, comb, or rub hair in a circular motion during the shampoo process.
- Using conditioner is highly recommended to reduce tangling. Place wig conditioner on the palm of your hand. Gently press conditioner into the hair starting at the ends and working up to about two inches from the root. Gently brush the wig from ends up to the roots in small sections, until the wig is completely brushed. Excessive brushing or force will cause hair breakage. Rinse the wig from roots to the ends, using luke warm water only.
- Blot dry with towel. Brush very gently starting from the ends to the root (in small sections). Place the wig on a wig stand and allow to air dry. *Natural air drying is the best method to maintain quality and shine of the wig.
- Once your wig is completely dry, the wig can now be styled using rollers, blow dryer, curling iron or flat iron only on the lowest heat settings.
- Spray on a leave in conditioner on your human hair wig every other day to keep it moist.
Monofilament wigs are constructed using a thin, breathable nylon or polyester mesh material at the base that takes on the natural scalp color of the wearer. Monofilament wigs offer the most natural look. Most monofilament wigs are hand tied individually (hair by hair) to the base. This allows the hair to swivel at the base, making the wig easy to style in many different looks. This feature allows you to part the wig or brush in any direction. Monofilament wigs should be the first choice for those with sensitive skin, and for those with severe to total hair loss.
Washing and caring for monofilament wigs:
To ensure the longevity of your monofilament wigs please follow the guidelines listed below.
- When washing hand tied, monofilament or pull-through hairpieces, make sure to always wash and rinse with the base *top side up.
- Do not swish the wigs back and forth in the water, as this might cause the knots holding the fibers at the base to push through the other side of the wig.
- Remember to always let the water run downward from base to ends of the wigs. Using a styling block can make this step much easier.
- When using a styling block, use a thin straight pin on the base or monofilament sections. Never use T-pins, T-pins can leave a permanent hole in these delicate material.
Lace Front Wigs
Lace front wigs are made with a fine mesh lace material. Front lace wigs features this material from ear to ear across the hairline. Full lace wigs features the lace material all around the wig and require the lace to be cut all around the wig.
Advantages of lace front wigs:
- When you receive your wig, it will have a long lace enough to cover your face. This will require you to cut some of this material. Make sure to cut along the front of the wig. The goal here is to create a new hairline. DO NOT cut off all of the lace material, you'll be applying adhesives to the lace material.
- You will notice once you put on a lace wig that it appears that it is growing directly from your head.
Washing and caring for a lace front wigs:
- We recommend that you wash the wig at least once a week using medium or cool water only.
- Place the wig on a mannequin head, spray with water from the ends to the roots.
- Using a wide tooth comb, comb the wig in the same manner (ends to roots) making sure there are no tangles.
- Place the wig in warm water for 5 minutes. Do not leave in water too long, this will cause the hair to tangle easily.
- Wash it gently using special shampoo and conditioner made for wigs. DO NOT rub it. Make sure to rinse the wig thoroughly in cool water.
- Place the wig on a blockhead or a mannequin (this will keep your wig in original shape) and blot dry using a towel (DO NOT SCRUB). Allow your wig to air dry overnight.
- When the wig is nearly dry, comb through it using your fingers to separate the hair strands.

- Abrasion or friction from couch, upholstered furniture, or even pillows will cause the hair to tangle. Use a silk pillowcase if you have to wear a wig while sleeping.
