    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.”

    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

    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.

    Summer is in full swing and it’s a hot one! Can you see yourself sipping on margaritas and lounging around napping? (Are you still with us or did we lose you at ‘margaritas’?)

    Summer is great but triple digit weather… not so much. You can wear all the skimpy outfits you want to stay cool, but things are a little different when you count on a wig as part of your routine.  And unless you have no problem going without your wig, chances are you’re already sweating just thinking about it.

    Well, don’t sweat it, we’ve got you covered! Just follow these 3 tips to stay cool while looking haute in your wigs all summer long.

    Cool Dos for Haute Summer Wigs

    1.      Do: Go with a capless wig.

    Last week we blogged about capless wigs; they’re light and airy – air circulates freely and keep it from feeling like a sauna. What’s more, capless synthetic wigs are perfect to deal with the summer’s humidity. Synthetic hair wigs are less affected by the weather and require minimal styling – that means you can give your hot tools a rest!

    Check out all capless wigs at Wigs.com here.

    2.      Do: Protect your wig.

    The summer is nothing without sunshine! Bad news is the sun can be equally hard on your wig as it is on your skin and hair. The fact is prolonged sun exposure can do irreparable damage to your synthetic and human hair wigs. Protect your wig by spraying some leave-in conditioner on it before you go out. Also, a shine serum can restore sheen and moisture to the fiber to refresh it between washes.

    Which takes us to our next point: Wash. Your. Wig. Sweating a little, sweating a lot – either way, it can get pretty ugly. Consider washing your wig more frequently to manage buildup (we suggest every 4-5 wears).

    Check out the awesome care products by BeautiMark for your synthetic or human hair wigs here.

    3.      Do: When in doubt, Accessorize!

    Hats and scarves can be your wig’s best friend. They not only protect your wig from the sun but they add some style to your summer wardrobe! There’s always a ton of trendy summer head wear to choose from. Give your wig the day off and wear them solo!

    The Sure Grip and the No Sweat Liners are great accessories to use under your wig. They will help to keep your wig from slipping out of place while absorbing that extra bit of sweat. So don’t be afraid to dive into a game of beach volleyball – you’re covered!

    Check out all headwear and liners here.

    As you can see, cool and chic summer hair with your wigs is possible. So, WORK IT with our cool summer wig tips – it’s never too hot to look good!

    In terms of hair, our days can be summed up as this: the good, the bad, and the ugly.

    On good days we’re flying high, flaunting our locks every which way. On bad days we throw on a hat or abuse the allotted one time a week ponytail (kudos if you got the ‘Mean Girls’ movie reference). And on ugly days? You stay home. OK, so no one really stays home due to a bad hair day, but you know you’ve thought about it... We’ve all been there.

    Synthetic hair wigs and extensions to the rescue! Whether you’ve lost your hair, or the little you do have doesn’t want to cooperate, wigs and hair extensions are a girl’s best friend. Honestly, when we need the extra help there's no reason why a heat-friendly synthetic hair wig or extension can’t do the trick. You see, once properly styled, your heat-friendly synthetic hair will stay put all day long regardless of what goes on in your environment. Unlike normal hair, synthetic hair doesn’t fall victim to the elements such as humidity and rain. You haven’t seen ugly until your hairstyle has been rained on!

    Styling your heat-friendly synthetic hair wigs and hair extensions is very similar to styling your own hair, with only a few exceptions. The following instructions are only for heat-friendly synthetic hair wigs and hair extensions.

    Note: We recommend keeping hot tools under 350° Fahrenheit. Also, keep in mind that once you alter your wig and/or hair extension you won’t get the original style back – but don’t worry you can change the style as many times as you’d like!

    Curl Heat-Friendly Synthetic Hair with Curling Iron

    Want to curl your wig or hair extensions? Easy! Just follow the 3 C’s:

    1. CURL
      • First of all, DO NOT curl hair while on your head. Use a canvas block or Styrofoam head to style your wig. You can hold down your hair extensions on a table or hold it with your hand and style.
      • Make sure you comb hair free of tangles (the Hair Trix Comb by BeautiMark is ideal).
      • Take a 1–1.5inch section of hair (smaller sections give you tighter curls, larger sections give you looser curls).
      • Gather hair in curling iron, smooth through to the ends, roll up towards weft.
      • Hold for 15-20 seconds, release curl into palm.
    2. CLIP
      • Hold the curl in one hand, gather up towards the base and clip it in place.
    3. COOL
      • Let hair cool completely before removing pin to effectively set the curl.
      • Hair can be combed using an appropriate comb.

     

     

    Straighten Heat-Friendly Synthetic Hair with Flat Iron

    Sexy glossy straight hair is super easy!

     

    1. Again, DO NOT style hair while on your head.
      • Use a canvas block or Styrofoam head to style your wig.
      • You can hold down your hair extensions on a table or hold it with your hand and style.
    2. Take a 1–1.5inch section, starting at least 2inches away from the base. Slowly smooth flat iron down towards end, follow with a comb to keep hair looking smoother.
    3. Continue through ends (2-3 times if needed).
    4. Allow hair to hang naturally to cool.

    Getting your “wig-on” is all fun and games, however, for the fun to actually continue we have to take proper care of our wigs. Please refer to our Synthetic Hair Special Care page to learn how.

    Tools used:

    1. Duck bill clips
    2. Hair Trix Comb by BeautiMark
    3. 1" Nano Ceramic Flat Iron with Smart Heat Controls
    4. 1" Nano Ceramic Curling Iron with Smart Heat Controls

     

     

     

    Now you’re ready to start styling your heat-friendly synthetic hair! Wasn’t that easy?
