    Brought to you by the experts at:

    Human hair that is used in the alternative hair industry goes through extensive processing for sorting, coloring, texturizing, etc. before it is attached to the base of a wig, hair system, or extension. Due to this processing, alternative human hair must be cared for differently than biological hair. Following proper care and product recommendations will help you protect your investment and have a successful experience with your human hair piece:

    Jon Renau recommends washing your wig or hairpiece every 6-8 wears

    The common misconception about care is that by washing your wig/hair system more often, the cap and fiber will not last as long. On the contrary, washing every 6-8 wears ensures you are removing the sweat, make up, and oils from your skin that sit within the elastic base of the cap and break down the cap much faster.

    Deep condition your human hair wig or hairpiece every 3-5 washes to keep the vitality of the human hair

    Keep away from any hand-tied areas of the base when applying conditioners, conditioning treatments, or any oil-based products. These products can loosen the hand-tied knots over time and cause hair loss in your wig/hair system.

    Use care products that are specifically formulated for alternative hair
    Although professional salon products are formulated and work great for biological hair, alternative human hair requires different care. It is essential to use only products that are specifically formulated for alternative human hair and refrain from using salon or drugstore care products.

    Use professional styling tools
    Whether the hair is wet or dry it is important to take special care when removing tangles. We recommend using a brush with plenty of cushion in the base and flexible wide-spaced bristles. This design prevents excessive pulling that causes breakage in the hair, in the knots or in the delicate area of the lace front or monofilament.

    Our pick: Jon Renau Paddle Brush

    When blow drying, we recommend using a boar bristle brush with about 20% nylon bristles to adequately grab the hair without creating too much tension. Additionally, the brush’s nylon bristles must be longer than the boar bristles in order to help smooth the hair and ensure a sleek finish.

     

    Our pick: Jon Renau Round Boar Bristle Brush

    This brush is intended for use on human hair only, not traditional or high heat synthetic fibers.

    Use professional grade heat-styling tools
    Professional grade tools are meant to deliver well-distributed heat without causing damage to the hair via their ceramic or tourmaline plates versus the less expensive metal or glass plates found in lower quality tools. The digital temperature settings on professional heat-styling tools also ensure you are working at the correct temperature all the time. To help maintain the integrity of the hair, your styling tools should be set no higher than 350° F when working with human hair.

    We recommend only using non-sticking protectants and styling sprays that prevent heat damage to your human hair wig or hair piece.

    Our pick: Jon Renau Heat Treat Thermal Spray

    If you’ve been purchasing the same wig in the same color for years, you’ve probably run into the situation where the manufacturer decided they are no longer producing your wig in that color. And if you’ve tried to replace it for a similar wig in the same color but maybe a different material, you’ve probably been disappointed because the color doesn’t look the same as it did on your monitor when you received it.  Frustrating!

    The reason this happens is because the material a wig is made of will affect the color.

    If you paint three objects the same color but one is made of brass, the other of plastic and the third of wood, the brown color will look different on each one.

    In the same way the same shade of brown will look different on a wig made of human hair, synthetic fiber, and even heat-friendly synthetic wigs.

    What are monofilament wigs? We get that question from new customers a lot. The term itself requires some explanation, but more importantly, the main advantage to a monofilament wig is the natural appearance it provides. The Wig Experts will break down the details for you. Keep reading or watch the video below.

    Among the various wig options available on the market, monofilament wigs are distinct due to their unique traits and benefits. Mono-Part, Mono-Top and Mono-Crown all refer to types of monofilament wig cap constructions. Whether you’ve experienced complete or partial hair loss, these wigs are considered the best choice due to their light weight, comfort and styling options. This is extremely important if your hair loss is caused by medical illness and your scalp is more sensitive to weight and temperature. Women with these concerns find the monofilament construction and quality in these wigs the ideal solution.

    The biggest misconception about monofilament is that it only identifies the way the cap is constructed.  Actually, monofilament refers to the materials from which it’s made. The monofilament materials are available in French or Swiss lace and come in wide ranges of texture, referring to either fine monofilament or welded monofilament. The construction of a monofilament wig consists of a thin mesh nylon fabric that resembles a natural scalp. This fine material is exceptionally preferable because it allows proper ventilation, leaving less heat trapped underneath the wig, reducing friction on the scalp. The manufacturer ultimately decides on the type of monofilament material to be used based on durability and preference. Many wig caps offer a combination of monofilament and other materials to enhance the overall product features.

    Monofilament construction is the most natural because the hair, either individually or in a tiny bundle of just a few, is usually always hand sewn in to the thin nylon fabric.  Each hair therefore, comes directly up out of the sheer nylon instead of laying flat as you see in non monofilament wigs.  This makes it look like the hair in the wig is actually growing right out of your own scalp! These wigs give the illusion of natural hair growth since the sheerness of the fabric at the scalp blends in with the actual color of your complexion. For that reason, this construction makes the wig virtually undetectable. The monofilament construction ensures that even if the wig hair is styled and parted in a different direction, the wig’s construction will not be revealed. Combining the thinness of the fabric and the sheer color will make you forget you are wearing a wig at all!

    Because the monofilament construction gives the appearance of natural hair growth from the scalp, many refer to monofilament wigs as “skin wigs”. There are basically two different methods of monofilament construction, hand-tied and machine-sewn.  More than 95%  of monofilament wigs are hand-tied.  Machine made monofilament wigs are generally found in the African American wigs.  In a hand-tied construction, each hair is individually sewn onto an area of the wig cap’s base, depending where the appearance of natural growth is needed. Another advantage of hand-tying each hair is that it tightly secures the hair strands to the material, reducing the amount of shedding. This technique gives the most realistic looking wig styles because it allows the movement of the hair to begin at the scalp. Machine-sewn monofilament wigs have the same benefits as a hand-tied, but instead of single hairs, small groups of hair are tied together. This reduces the amount of movement achieved by a hand-tied wig, but will also make the wig less expensive to create.

    Monofilament wigs are in high demand, which in turn makes them readily available from most of our top brands in all the latest and most desired hair styles. The wide variety of styles available expand from short to long, straight to wavy or curly, and more. You are sure to find your favorite color and style among the many monofilament wigs available at Wigs.com!

    Mirage_wig_raquel_welch

    If you have more than one wig style, chances are you enjoy changing up your look. While we would all love to have a closet full of wigs (and shoes) for some of us, it’s not always possible. That’s why we’re so excited about Mirage by Raquel Welch; this is a great piece to add to your collection. It’s truly versatile – you get not one, not two, but multiple wig styles in one!

    Not an Illusion, it’s Mirage

    This wig comes with detachable sections (see diagram below) which you can add to Mirage to get a different look. Attach one side piece and Voilà! – you've just turned this short style into a chic asymmetrical wig. Or add both side pieces to add more fullness and coverage on the sides. Mirage can go from super cute short cut to a longer shaggy look with nape piece. The style possibilities are endless!

    If you've been meaning to try something new, check out Mirage – it’s like nothing you've ever seen before!
