You might ask yourself ‘Why use these wigs when you have so many products?’
Why use wigs?
Hair brings a lot to your look. It brings colour, volume and adds the finishing touch to your look. It is surprising what a single hair accessory could add to your look. There are many options you can choose from when talking of hair, butthey require a lot of effort. And not just a new hairstyle, but taking care of hair takes a lot of effort too.
There are many products in the market for styling your hair the way you want. These products might be very convenient, easily accessible and easy to use. However, they harm your hair in the long term, whether you talk about heat protectants, hair sprays, dry shampoo or even shampoos or conditioners. Most hair care products have harmful chemicals in them.
This is where wigs come in. These are an easy way to get any hairstyle you want, without causing as much damage to your natural hair with hair products. You can use any number of products on it without worrying much about the damage. And to top it all, wigs give extra volume which is a great boost to your confidence. You will walk with your head held a little higher with that confidence!
Which wig to choose?
The first and only thing you want to consider when buying a wig is to make it seem as natural as possible. You have no idea how much effort it takes to make the neon wigs seem natural on a person. The bangs on the wigs do help in hiding the hairline which makes it seem more natural.
There are many wigs available in the market which are readymade and one-for-all size. These are cheap and easily available. But these might not be the ideal choice for you. Customised wigs are the best wigs to give you a more natural look. While these wigs are more expensive, they are made especially for you and adjusted to meet your needs.
Which is the most natural-looking wig and why?
When talking of natural appearance with wigs, HD lace wigs are the most natural-looking wigs. Why you may ask.
These wigs have a frontal made up of Swiss lace. Swiss lace was used as royal lace and is known for its fine quality and delicate material. Using Swiss lace in wigs makes the lace melt with the scalp and makes the wig almost undetectable when it is put on. HD lace wigs allow the scalp to breathe while also exposing the hairline. An exposed hairline means a more natural look to the wig-wearer!
There are other varieties of lace wigs available in the market too. There are transparent lace wigs and medium brown lace wigs. The other lace is a little thicker than HD lace and is a little more difficult to blend with the scalp. This is why it is recommended use HD lace wigs.
Taking care of an HD lace wig
The key to making the wig great is to take proper care of it. Here are some tips to maintaining an HD lace wig:
Avoid extreme heat: Keep in mind to store the wig away from places which have extreme heat such as heating vents or fire. Just like when exposing your hair to heat, the hair on the wig will suffer irreparable damage when exposed to extreme heat. We also recommend you to not use blow dryers or curling irons on your wigs too often.
Comb regularly and gently: Combing your hair regularly helps you in avoiding knots and gives you smoother hair as a result. But when talking of HD lace wigs, you want to comb the hair gently. This will help in reducing hair breakage. We recommend you try combing from the lower section of the hair and move upwards. This is the best way to avoid breakage.
How to wash your wig: Here is a tip for any kind of hair.Warm water helps in opening the pores in the hair and washing away the dirt thoroughly. The cold water helps close the pores to avoid breakage after the hair wash is complete. The same goes for an HD lace wig. Instead of washing the wig by keeping it on a mannequin, soak the wig in cold water. Then take a spray bottle and mix a teaspoon of shampoo in lukewarm water. Spray this water on the wig after taking it out of the cold water. Spread out the shampoo through the hair with a wide-toothed comb. Rinse the wig with cold water.
Conditioning is also important: After washing the wig, keep in mind conditioning as well. Conditioning gives a smooth finish to your hair, resulting in soft hair. Take a tablespoon of conditioner and mix it with water in a spray bottle. Repeat the process of applying the conditioner and spreading it and rinsing with cold water like mentioned in the above. Pat dry with a towel and let it air dry on a mannequin.
A wig gives you extra volume, which will boost your confidence. However, to get that kind of volume, maintaining the human hair wigs is necessary, just like you take care of your hair.
