Care

  • Posted on May 16, 2016 by Wig Expert

    Top pieces are a great solution for localized hair loss. The best top piece covers the affected area while delivering exceptional comfort. Identifying the nature and extent of your hair loss is the key to determining the right solution for your needs.

    Stages of Hair Loss: The first step in determining what kind of coverage you need is to identify your stage of hair loss.

    Stage I: Hair loss is in a diffused pattern on top of the head. Hair loss at this stage is noticeable, but minimal.
    Stage II: Hair loss is more noticeable, and more of the scalp may be visible.
    Stage III: At this stage hair loss is very noticeable, and the scalp is clearly visible.

    Area of Hair Loss: The second step is to identify the location of hair loss.

    Front/Fringe: Hair loss is localized at or near the front hair line.
    Part: Hair loss is localized within the top of the scalp near the part or crown.
    Top: Light to moderate hair loss localized at the top of the scalp near the part or the crown.
    Crown: Hair loss is localized at or near the back of the scalp.
    Diffused: Hair loss is localized at the top of the scalp and is spread through much of the area.
    Total/Complete: Complete loss of hair.

    The Best Solution: The third step is to select the best type of coverage for your need.

    Clip-in bangs/fringe are the perfect solution for thinning hair at the front hairline or temples.

     

    Clip-in, volumizing hairpieces and extensions help you fill in thinning areas or fine hair. This is the ideal solution for hair loss localized within a smaller area of the head.

     

     

     

    Clip-in top pieces with smaller bases work best for light to moderate hair loss at the top of the head near the part or crown.

     

    Clip-in top pieces with larger bases are the solution for extensive hair loss at the top, crown, or more diffused stages of hair loss.

     

    100% Hand-Tied & Double Monofilament Wigs are the ideal solution for complete hair loss and the preferred wigs by women with hair loss because of the smoother surface and comfortable caps which eliminate irritation and friction against the scalp.

     

    We're here to help you find a solution to regain your confidence. For more assistance, we developed our Hair Matchmaker tool to help you easily classify your particular type and degree of hair loss matched up with the best solution.

    Great hair deserves great care and one of the secrets to making your wigs, hairpieces and hair extensions look great longer, is proper care.

    If you’re new to wearing alternative hair, consider a kit that will outfit you with all you need to maintain your investment.

    Wigs.com loves the BeautiMark collection because its formulated specifically for wearable hair and free of parabens.

    5 of Your Biggest Alternative Hair Care Questions Answered

    Why can’t I just use regular shampoos and conditioners?

    Using products that are not formulated for your hair can damage the fiber causing it to look dull and feel brittle. Using products specially formulated for your hair type returns it to its natural sheen, prolonging that supple movement that’s so crucial to a natural look.

    Can I use Woolite to wash my hair?

    While there was a practice of simply throwing your wig or hairpiece in with the dirty laundry, newer synthetic fibers can be more sensitive to products which are not specifically formulated for your particular hair type.

    I have wigs made of human hair and synthetic fiber, can I use the same product on both?

    Synthetic hair and human hair each have special needs in order to maintain their optimal look and feel. But to maintain its beautiful condition, you must use specially formulated hair care products designed for your type of hair.

    Should I wash my wig and hairpieces every day to keep it clean?

    There’s no need to clean your wearable hair daily. But we do recommend a regular cleaning every 6-8 wears.

    What should I do to keep my hair looking its best between washings?

    Natural hair is kept hydrated with oils from the scalp.This, of course, does not happen with wigs or hair add-ons. While we don’t recommend washing your wearable hair every day, it is critical that you hydrate daily with leave-in conditioner. These products will also protect hair prior to any heat styling.

    Synthetic

    The Leave-In Conditioner for synthetic hair comes in an 8-ounce spray bottle and is made of a lightweight formula that conditions and detangles.

    Human Hair

    The Hydra Conditioner is specially formulated for human hair and comes in an 8-ounce tube and PH balanced to create healthy hair that is smooth and soft.

    Hair Care Systems by Beautimark

    The Beautimark care systems were first perfected for synthetic hair.

    Synthetic

    The great thing about synthetic hair is that it requires very little care and maintenance. The 10-piece Wig Essentials Kit for Synthetic Hair includes all the products and tools you need for cleaning and styling.

    One of our Beautifmark clients, Marge, had this to say about our shampoo and conditioner for synthetic hair: "I love how my wigs look after they are freshly washed with this shampoo. Plus they smell great! I use the Leave-In conditioner also and think the two work well together. Out of the different shampoos I've used on my wigs this is by far the best."

    Human Hair

    Human Hair wigs can last a lot longer than synthetics, but that’s only If you take proper care of them. After much success with our care products for synthetic hair, we extended our line to include Beautimark products specially formulated for human hair.

    The 5pc PURE CARE System cleans, conditions, protects, revitalizes and adds shine to chemically processed hair. It includes, everything you need to care for your human hair wigs, extensions and hairpieces. The formula is so good; you can even use it on your own hair!

    Lisa loves it so much she said: I have fallen in love with this product. My hair is so hydrated but unlike most hydrating products it doesn't weigh my hair down. I tried the recovery mask in the 5 piece set and I can honestly say I have never seen such a great conditioning treatment ...ever! It is a must have for sure.”

    Wavy hair goes with warm weather like surfboards and picnic baskets. Low maintenance yet stylish, this summertime go-to is popular and looks great in any season. But how do you get that effortlessly tousled look? It’s fast and easier than you think. Check out our tutorial and easy step-by-step guide for getting the Perfect Loose Wave with Spirit by Ellen Wille!

     

    We’ll be demonstrating on Spirit, which is part of the new Prime Power collection by Ellen Wille. Due to it’s unique blend of human hair enhanced with premium synthetic fiber, Prime hair can be heat styled up to 350 degrees. You’ll also need a 1 inch curling iron. We used the 1” Professional Ceramic Spring Iron by Gold N Hot. (Want to watch as we style? Check out our video on How To Style Prime Hair.)

    Step 1: Set your curling iron to a maximum temperature of 350 degrees. Any higher will melt the fibers.

     

     

    Step 2: The secret to perfecting this style is leaving the ends straight. Start by taking a 1 inch width piece of hair from the part and wrap it around the barrel of the curling iron leaving about 2 inches uncurled. *Note-We are using a standard barrel curling iron. You can achieve the same look by using a curling wand which won’t clip the hair.)

     

     

    Step 3: Twist the curling iron away from your face to create an outward curl.

     

     

    Step 4: Hold for about 5-10 seconds.

     

     

    Step 5: Pull the barrel lower on the curl and hold for another 2-3 seconds.

     

     

    Step 6: Gently pull the curl as you remove the curling iron from the hair.

     

     

    Step 7: Repeat this process working your way around your head until you arrive at the other side of the part.

     

     

    Step 8: Run your fingers through your hair a few times to soften the curls.

     

     

    Step 9: Now you have the perfect loose wave!

    DAY 33

    It’s raining cats and dogs and as I pull into work my wig looks perfect. This is a big deal because I styled it all by myself and I am not the best at primping my own hair. It’s a short and dark, one length wig from Louis Ferre made of human hair. The quality is amazing! At first the lace wouldn't lay down properly on my forehead so I thought it may be defective. But it's almost like it just figured out my head shape because after I styled it (flat ironed the waves which took me too long!) the hair feels incredible and looks great!

     

    DAY 38

    I’ve noticed that no matter how secure I know my wig is I keep touching it to make sure it hasn’t ridden up. I’m not sure if this is a nervous habit I developed because it took a couple of weeks for me to get the 'putting on' process down. But once I start tugging my hair underneath begins moving. I made a conscious effort not to touch it and trust it is where it belongs. I found myself still doing mirror checks just to be sure.

     

    DAY 41

    Three days later and the not-tugging-on-my-wig-to-make-sure-it’s-in-place effort is working like a dream. What a difference! It turns out the problem was my own insecurity about my wig moving. Today was my first real experience with cold set, which is when a wig sits in a box a long time, or is exposed to extreme temperatures while in the box. It sets the hair in a weird shape, (usually on top or in front). I learned to spritz it down with water, rub my hands together vigorously and touch it up. The heat from your hands resets the hair!

     

    DAY 46

    I'm learning so many things about hair color. The only thing that's changed on me over the last month or so has been my hair. But there’s a difference in the way I’m treated depending on which color I choose for the day. I received the most compliments on my hair as a brunette. I feel the most at home in this color. The consensus seems to be that I look younger, "classier" was the word used. But as a blonde I received more concessions: men allowed me to go first in line; I got little extras at the counter; and (of course) I got looked at. Even women were giving me the “once over”. Each color has its advantage for sure.

    DAY 13

    I have to say not having to do my hair every morning sure is nice. It takes about three minutes to brush it back and put a wig on. Loving it! And note to self… I have decided I DO NOT like nylon wig caps. The little band starts to hurt my head after about three or four hours. I don't think my head is too big, but maybe I should measure it anyway. I have learned NOT to comb my hair straight back. It makes my head sore with the wig on like when you wear a really tight ponytail all day. But when I comb my hair over to the side and pull it back it feels much better all day!

     

    DAY 19

    Spirit by Ellen Wille | Auburn Rooted

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Nope. My head is regular size. I'm learning never to brush my wig from the top down. I find I get much better results when I use my fingers or the BeautiMark comb. It looks way more natural! I picked up my kids in a long dark wig that was the same color as my natural hair and my daughter was so excited. She said I look like her! She kept staring at me and said I looked so much different than I have been lately. Isn’t it amazing how hair can make such a difference in the way we are perceived?

     

    DAY 24

    Speaking of perceptions, the question people keep asking me is, “Is it hot?” I guess that's the general perception. In fact, it is one of the top questions almost everyone asks when I talk about wearing wigs. The truth is it really isn't hot. Not the good ones anyway! Of course, I'm mindful that the Texas 100° months are behind me so I'm sure anything is hot then. However, so far, the wigs are really very breathable and comfortable. I had squeaky clean hair today. It was straight which helped my wig slip on easier. I put a little hair spray on my head around the front to help it stay in place. Oh, and I also tried the nylon again. I really didn't like it before. But I snipped a little slit in the elastic band and it works great. It holds my hair back but doesn't press in on my head!

     

    DAY 31

    So today I asked everyone in the office to join me in my challenge by wearing a wig for the day so they too can understand our clients a little better! It was so much fun seeing people try on this lifestyle for a day. It was very enlightening for some people, and it might've started an addiction for others. Although I work here, I don't have access to see every color we have every week. So I ordered one based on the color I saw online. When I got it, it looked a little different than it did online. However, once I put it on and went outside it looked more like the color online under natural light. Now I know what my clients are talking about when they have this issue.
