Anyone who is familiar with wigs has stumbled upon the phrase “Remy human hair” at least once. Through context alone, even complete wig novices can figure out how desired this type of hair is.
Not all human hair wigs are created equal. Namely, Remy is considered the highest quality. It has to do with how the hair is collected. When the fibers are harvested the cuticle is kept in-tact. The cuticle is the protective layer on the hair and keeping in in-tact offers the most natural look and feel.
A Remy human hair wig can last a year of daily wear if it is properly cared for. In order to protect your pricey investment, it’s best to learn just how to “properly care” for it!
As with any wig, you’ll need a small arsenal of products to keep your wig looking its best. For Remy human hair wigs, here’s a list of essential tools:
- Block head or wig stand - For styling and storage.
- T-pins - For securing the wig to the block head
- Paddle brush - For smoothing tangles
- Blow dryer - For drying, of course!
- Round brush - For proper blow-drying
- Luster Serum and 3-in-1 Miracle Protect Spray - For keeping your wig looking gorgeous
When it comes to washing, don’t under or overwash your wig. If you wear it daily, wash it every two weeks. If it isn’t your daily piece, aim for every 7 to 10 wears.
Before washing, give your a wig a good once-over. Search for any tangles and remove them gently with your paddle brush.
As with any wig, you’ll want to cleanse and condition. Only use products specially formulated for alternative human hair. BeautiMark has a Pure Care collection that has everything you need to care for your wig, including a recovery mask.
Speaking of recovery mask, get one. Products like that condition and moisturize your hair. The Intensive Recovery Conditioner by BeautiMark repairs hair without weighing it down.
When it comes time to wear your newly washed wig, you’ll need to style it. Human hair wigs, of course, can be styled with heat tools like straightening and curling irons. When you use these tools, however, keep the temperature around 270° F - 280° F. This range protects the integrity of the strands.
