    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.”

    Brought to you by the experts at:

     

    1 in 4 women in the United States have some form of hair loss. Hair loss comes in many forms, from thin, fine hair at the front hairline to advanced diffused hair loss throughout. Not every woman is ready for a full system or wig; Jon Renau toppers are great for everything ranging from fashion to the mid-progressive stages of hair loss.

    How to properly measure for a topper:
    Follow these steps to determine the size of the area that needs coverage.

    1. Determine the area of hair loss
    2. Using a fabric measuring tape, measure area from front to back and record results
    3. Measure area from side to side and record results

    Be sure to factor in clip attachments on base. There must be a sufficient amount of hair to attach clip to.

    How to choose the right base:
    Use the chart below to determine which topper is best for you. Be sure to check the “BASE DIMENSIONS” column for the proper base size, based on your measurements. Remember, the clips must attach in an area with a sufficient amount of hair.

    How to apply a topper:
    Follow these steps to properly apply the topper you have chosen.

    1. Place over area of hair loss and check in the mirror for balance and style
    2. Apply front of topper about 1”-2” (2.5 - 5 cm) back from the natural hair line. Incorporate natural hairline (if available) for most natural look
    3. Secure front clip. Place hand on top of base to support as you secure the back clip(s), keeping base flat and taught against head. Do not pull when applying
    4. Secure side clips, keeping base flat and taught against head
    5. Blend topper with hair and style as desired

    TIP:
    If there is no hair present at the clip attachment site, you can remove the clip and apply using adhesive (on polyurethane areas only)

    The Truth

    You’ve heard the phrase, “You get what you pay for.” And if you’ve spent any amount of time with wigs, you've noticed that the ones made of human hair are generally more expensive than the ones made of synthetic fiber. But does that necessarily exclude one over the other as the better choice?

    The truth is Human hair and Synthetic hair both have their advantages and disadvantages. Let’s take a look at just a few of them.

    Human Hair

    Remy Human Hair: Angie Exclusive Colors by Jon Renau

    Human Hair: Emotion by Ellen Wille

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Advantages

    Of all the hair types, human hair looks and feels the most natural. Remy human hair is considered a premium option because its easier to style and stays relatively tangle free due to all the follicles being kept in the same direction during construction. Human hair is remarkably soft with a shine and movement not easily duplicated by synthetic hair. Its versatility allows you to style it like your own hair with curls or bone straight with a durability that can last over a year!

    Disadvantages

    Not only is it more expensive than synthetic hair, but just like natural hair, human hair wigs requires a lot more time and effort to style and maintain. If you have a busy lifestyle or a low budget, this may not be the choice for you. And just like natural hair, human hair will react to weather conditions.

    Synthetic Hair

    Synthetic Hair: Sparkle by Raquel Welch 

    Heat-Friendly Synthetic by Raquel Welch

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Advantages

    With all the technological strides the wearable hair industry is making, synthetic hair looks and behaves more and more like human hair. The fact that most synthetic wigs can be worn right out of the box with minimal or no styling requirements makes it a more attractive choice. And, unlike human hair, synthetic hair will hold its style regardless of the climate.

    Disadvantages

    It’s just this resistance to change that makes this type of hair a poor choice if you desire the versatility of styling. In most cases the synthetic fiber has “memory” which means that the wave and curl patterns are permanently set; styling any other way is nearly impossible. There are heat-friendly synthetic options which allow styling like human hair wigs. But styling is still a challenge due to the fiber’s natural resistance to change.

    Bottom Line

    Ideally, you want both types of hair on hand as both are great choices for different situations. The best one depends on your budget, time and needs.

    Final Words of Wisdom

    Regardless of which type of hair you choose, remember that it is always important to follow our care recommendations in order to get the optimal life span from your hair!
