    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 48

    It's confirmed, blondes do get more attention. But surprisingly it was as a redhead that I received the most flirts. Maybe redheads are more approachable? I love having the luxury of choice so much that I’ve decided to go past my 30 day commitment. Wigs feel so much like another accessory that I now plan outfits around different styles and colors. This must be how women in the 50's and 60's felt as wigs and hair was the ultimate accessory used to finish a look. Except, the hair quality is phenomenally better now!!!

     

    DAY 52

    I was at the airport today and as I walked through security I began thinking about setting off alarms. Would I have to take my wig off? I began playing through different ways I could deflect embarrassment. I got through okay, but that brief moment of apprehension stayed with me. It left me thinking about the anxiety a woman who’s not yet ready to reveal to the world that she wears a wig must feel in such a situation. It’s such a shame that there are women who wear or want to wear wigs that fear being stigmatized.

     

    DAY 65

    You know you're in love with something when you can't put it away! I decided to extend my wig wearing adventure until the end of the year. But as 2015 came to a close and 2016 began, I found myself still reaching for a wig in the morning. I never thought I would feel this way about wigs. They appeal to the side of me that’s gotten spoiled by having perfect hair every day. Seriously, I haven't been to the hairdresser in quite a while (saved some money there too). So it looks like I'll be wearing wigs for another 14 days until I can get my hair done.

     

    DAY 80+

    Going through this journey has helped me arrive at a new appreciation for my clients, especially the women that wear wigs daily as a necessity. What I love most about wigs is their extraordinary ability to transform your mood, and confidence level, in an instant! Whether you’re new to wigs or an experienced wig wearer, I hope this piece has been helpful. I would love to get your feedback. Please feel free to share your wig experience below and I look forward to sharing with you all again.

    As you all know, earlier this month we launched three exciting new collections from the celebrity-endorsed brand known by its beautiful Bellas as the premier spot to get long, luscious locks. We are proud to welcome BELLAMI Hair to the Beauty & Hair family!

    BELLAMI, which means “Beautiful Me”, continues to cater to the latest hair trends by introducing these glamorous 100% Remy human hair extension lines: Kylie Hair Kouture, Lilly Hair and Balayage by Guy Tang.

    We took the first opportunity we got to try them on for ourselves, and this is what our Wig Expert, Roxie, had to say:

    Guy Tang Bayalage Color: #1C/18 by Bellami Hair

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    This was my first experience with Bellami Hair, and I absolutely fell in love the second I put them in.  My hair has always been very thin, so I keep it in a medium bob because if I don’t the ends get brittle. I’ve worn many different brands of extensions and I couldn’t believe how well Bellami blended with my own hair. 

    Being in the hair business, I’ve had the opportunity to experiment with lots of different wigs and extensions. What I love the most about Bellami is the wefting, which lies flat on my scalp giving the extensions the appearance of my natural hair.

    Guy Tang is one of the most talked about color specialist in the world, and I got my perfect Balayage color! Color #1C/18 gave me the best of both worlds with the Platinum Gold Blonde tips accenting the Dark Chocolate Brown perfectly.

    With my new hair I feel I’ve become a Bellami Bella!

     

    Kylie Hair Kouture

    Kylie Hair Kouture Color: #2/TEAL by Bellami Hair

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Here’s what we love about the Kylie Kouture collection: it comes in sixteen color options in the 180 grams, 20 inch range with six of the shades dipped in a vibrant Teal Ombre (giving you the opportunity to try a bold color statement without the commitment). The InvisiWeft technology not only keeps the extensions from shedding or getting tangled, but the wefts lie flat against your scalp and feels very secure. We were pleased to see how well the pieces can blend into your own hair elevating you to that next level of effortless modern glam!

    Lilly Hair

    Lilly Hair Color: #2 by Bellami Hair

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    For when you want to achieve that voluptuous and glamorous look, Lilly Hair is excellent! Bigger is definitely more beautiful with this luscious line, giving you impressive volume and length in the 260 grams, 20 inch range by creating a fuller, more luxurious hair experience. It comes in twelve different natural hues from Jet Black, to Chestnut Brown, to Vibrant Red, and even Beach Blonde. We love that in-spite of the length the wefts are super soft and manageable. You’ll look gorgeous in these extensions; we were so in love with having long hair that we didn’t want to take them off!

    Balayage by Guy Tang

    As one of the most popular hair requests in salons, balayage is becoming a phenomenon. We love how it allows for a natural-looking and subtle, sun-kissed ombre. Brought to you by celebrity hair genius, Guy Tang, Balayage gives you instant salon-exclusive hair in five different colors with the Balayage 160 grams, 20 inch range, and Balayage 220 grams, 22 inch range. Our favorite thing about this collection is that it gives you the balayage experience without ever having to walk into a salon!

    Everything old is new again!

    For months now we’ve noticed a retro vibe creeping onto the hair worn on the red carpets and fashion runways alike. At the beginning of the year we saw the revival of pin curls and finger waves, but now the hair has gotten better (and bigger) than ever! From ponytails to beehives, these old favorites are getting revamped in trendy ways.

    This season you can recreate any of these hairstyles with a colorful twist!

    Back to the Future

    The hair roll worn by Demi Lovato with pink tips.

    Demi Lovato revived the 1950s hair roll with her pink-tipped hair. The look has ‘rockabilly’ written all over it, but if you add a little bit of color you too can rock a modern take on the pin-up look with color hair extensions. If you're a wig wearer, make sure to wear a monofilament wig when recreating the hair roll to ensure the most realistic look.

    The 1960s beehive may have been Amy Winehouse’s signature style, but Teen Vogue magazine gave it a major makeover with huge neon dyed hair. You can get the same look without the commitment by clipping in colorful extensions into your hair or wig. (Psst… the brighter the better!)

    A colorful high pony hairstyle as worn by Katy Perry.

    Photo by WireImage.com

    Madonna brought back the “I Dream of Jeannie” ponytail in the 90s, but this year we’ve seen it on a ton of celebrities including Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato. Katy Perry gave it her personal touch with extra-long color hair extensions. A ponytail hairpiece can give you the high pony look. Plus, by pairing it up with clip-in color hair extensions you can splash some life into it and still keep up with the trend.

    What will be the next trend to resurface? Whether it’s the Afro, The Rachel (too soon?) or the Mohawk, you can count on us to help you with the details!

    Shop: ALL CAPLESS WIGS

    A common misconception about capless wigs is that they are not full wigs. The fact is, capless is more than what it sounds like. Don’t let the name confuse you, capless wigs give the full coverage you want and need.

    Back in the day wigs were made with a solid material that covered the entire head. Picture a baseball cap with hair sewn onto the entire base... Are you sweating yet? As you can imagine these wigs used to be extremely hot and not all that comfortable. Wigs made with a capless cap construction on the other hand, are the complete opposite. In fact, they’re everything you would want for the hot summer months!

    What is a capless wig?

    The term 'capless' simply indicates that the wig is not constructed with a closed solid base. Instead, a wig with a capless construction has what is called ‘open-wefting'. This is a machine-made cap construction that consists of open spaced wefts of hair that are held together with vertical lace strips. Check out the diagram below:

    Diagram for Capless Wigs

    What are some of the benefits of capless wigs?

    Wigs from back in the day were made with closed lace which created a solid base. Consequently, air would not circulate properly and made these wigs extremely hot to wear. However, since there’s no “cap” in a capless wig, the open-wefts allow air to go in and out making it super cool to wear. The lack of a solid base is also a huge pro because it makes the wig feel light and airy; some capless wigs weigh just a few ounces (Heart Throb only weighs 3 oz!). You'll never feel like you’re wearing a baseball cap with a capless wig!

    The spacing between the wefts also helps the hair density look more realistic and not overly full or thick. This gives the wig full coverage while avoiding the “wiggy” look. Plus, capless wigs made from synthetic hair tend to be among the most affordable types of wigs available. AND they are ready-to-wear – No fuss no muss!

    As always, less is more and with capless wigs you definitely can’t go wrong!

    Watch the video below to take a closer look at a capless construction.To learn more about all kinds of cap constructions read our Wig Buyer’s Guide.

    Haven’t you heard? Everyone is wigging out!

    But in a good way! Wherever you look, wigs are haute and totally in fashion.

    Whether it’d be hair extensions or wigs the fact is everyone is wigging out for alternative hair!

    Why wigs?

    ecards-wigs-are-the-new-black Image by someecards.com

    Why wear wigs… why not?! You could get so much out of wigs if you give them a chance. They come in all sorts of colors, shapes, textures - not to mention all of the hairstyle possibilities! Think about how long it takes you to simply decide on a different hair color or hair cut. It’s such a permanent change most of us are scared to make the commitment. But with wigs you can go from one look to the next in an instant – change your look like you change your mind!

    Wigs for Everybody

    Wigs are no longer taboo; everyone and anyone can wear them. They’re not just for women with temporary or permanent hair loss anymore. Wigs are not only for those that need them. What’s more, they’re becoming part of pop culture. Can you imagine what Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj or Katy Perry would look like without their wigs? Musical talent aside, it simply wouldn’t be the same!

    synthetic hair wigs Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj, Katy Perry Lady Gaga look: Obsession by Risque wig; Nicki Minaj look: Party Girl Candy Stripe by Jon Renau wig; Katy Perry look: Tease by Incognito wig

    ‘Real Housewife’ Kim Zolciak revealed her own hair after taking off her wig. And her hair looked completely normal and beautiful! She wears wigs because she loves them. On a recent Facebook post, Kim said “I love my wigs, I love how easy they are. You just put them on and go, you can chose straight hair, curly hair, whatever I am feeling for the day. I do not do extensions, because it damages your real hair. So I will keep on wearing my wigs until the day I decide it's time to move on.” For her it’s all about comfort and versatility – exactly what you get from wigs.

    So get with the times and get your wig on!
