FAQs

Q How do I clean my wig?
A Brush the wig thoroughly, then add wig shampoo to wash basin and fill with cool water. Let the wig soak for 5 minutes. Swish the wig gently around the basin NEVER RUB, then rinse gently in cool clear water a couple of times or until thoroughly rinsed. Apply wig conditioner and gently work through hair with fingertips, then rinse thoroughly with cool water, unless you are using a spray on leave in conditioner. Dab gently with a towel DO NOT WRING. Allow to air dry on a wig stand or head. DO NOT USE A HAIRDRYER ON SYNTHETIC WIGS. Brush wig only when it is completely dry.

Q How often should I wash my wig?
A Every 2-3 weeks if worn regularly, or when you feel it needs freshening up.

Q How do I style my wig?
A Your wig can be styled by using a wig brush or your fingertips. Your wig was designed with a basic style but the variations you can achieve through styling are limitless. Added height can be achieved by gently lifting with the brush. If you want added fullness as well, tease or back comb and then smooth the surface hair over. To return your wig to its basic style simply brush thoroughly, clean and allow to air dry.

Q What is the difference between human hair and synthetic hair?
A Human hair: more versatility, longer durability, you can use straighteners (CAUTION: GHD's are too hot for this, no heat over 180 should be used) or tongs, custom styling and colouring available. Synthetic: easy to maintain as you can just wash and wear it, less expensive than human hair, easy to style, pre styled.

Q What is Monofilament Wig?
A A monofilament wig is the cap within the wig that has been hand tied with a special two layer construction for maximum comfort and worry-free wearing. The monofilament construction is comfort enhanced by a special weaving technique, which results in excellent ventilation and you are able to see your scalp through the top, giving a more natural look.
