Choosing the Right Type of Wig
Let’s start with the different types of wigs on the market. One of the most common topics you’ll find is the debate between Human hair vs Synthetic Hair. Although human hair is costlier, it looks natural, is durable, can be styled with various tools and dyed or highlighted professionally as you would your normal hair. Synthetic hair costs less and also has many advantages, such as holding style regardless of weather or wash, low maintenance and various style options.
The types of human hair wigs, are either chemically treated or not: Processed vs. Unprocessed. Processed hair basically means the hair has been chemically treated by dipping in an acrylic acid to strip the natural effects, giving the styling abilities the manufacturer would like. Typically, processed wigs have an added silicone coat to give a shine that looks great but will not last as long as an unprocessed wig.
Unprocessed wigs, aka remy hair, Remy vs. Non Remy, are not chemically treated, typically come from one donor and look dull. Although your eyes will automatically veer towards the processed look, we highly recommend unprocessed hair. Don’t worry though, our award-winning salon and wig services can add the colors and depth you want to your wig.
What’s the Difference Between Wigs and Hairpieces?
The main difference between wigs and hair pieces is the amount of coverage. Wigs cover the entire scalp. You can put it on as needed, tuck in your hair and go! Style your wig in various ways and add different depth or color as needed. A lace front wig sew-in provides an extremely natural look matching your current hairline making it very hard to detect.
Hair pieces are customized to your hair, filling in thinning and/or balding areas providing a fuller look. The various types depend on the area that you need focus on: hair toppers, hair extensions, hair pieces and volumizers. Hair pieces can be styled with your current hair, come in different thickness and can also be perfectly color matched. In order to obtain a seamless integration, it is important that you select the correct length, and type of hair (curly, straight, wavy) to match yours.

To clean your wig you must first detangle using a wide tooth comb. You can brush through gently but try not to pull. Prepare a bowl of cold water and mix a cap full of shampoo in. Soak for about three to five minutes. Remove your wig and refill the bowl with fresh cold water removing any soapy suds. Immerse your wig in the cold water once again. While your wig is wet, place it on a wig stand and spray conditioner. Allow your wig to dry, keeping in mind that you should never blow dry synthetic hair. If you have a synthetic wig the style will appear once again. With human hair, you will need to style your hair to your desire every time you wash. Our recommendation is to wash your wigs about every 7 to 10th time that you wear it.
