The Beginner’s Guide for Buying & Wearing Hair Wigs (2024)

Sewing vs. Glue vs. Double-Sided Tape

Below we will list all the application types, and as you have learned already, none of them have any pros or cons.

Sewing Wigs

If you go with sewing, you will need a needle and a thread. Start sewing on the front of your hairline and go all the way around. You can also add a couple of stitches to the crown area.

Gluing Wigs

If you decide to glue it on, there are great gels that you can buy made specifically for this, which means they’re completely safe. Apply some glue/gel just below your natural hairline and wait a few moments until it becomes tacky. Grab the wig with your fingers and press it there. It is easier if you do this one bit at a time. To finish, blow dry that area so that it sets quicker.

Using Tape

Using a double tape is very similar; apply it around your hairline and tape the wig on. Make sure that everything is nice and tight.

That’s pretty much it! The wig should look very realistic and natural if applied correctly and should stay on for a long period. It will behave just like your natural hair. You can also ask a friend to help you if it’s your first time or go to a salon to have it done professionally.

How to Style a Wig?

When styling your new wig, you want to make it look as real and natural as possible. First, make sure that you have installed it correctly. It doesn’t matter which technique and method you use. Make sure that hairline looks good, and everything is symmetrical.

You can try out wavy, curly, as well as straight hairstyles. When it comes to hairdos, you can do pretty much anything with a wig; the only problem can be updos and high ponytails. If you want your hair up, you can only do it if you have a full lace wig or a 360-lace wig. Only those two wig types have a completely natural hairline all around. With a full lace wig, you can even braid your whole hair.

Just like you must care for your tresses, you need to take some steps to maintain your wig as well. The more you take care of it, the longer it will last you. Whether you have a synthetic or human hair wig, the washing process is quite similar. Keep in mind that you don’t need to wash your wig as often as your natural strands. Washing it too often could wear it down over time. Also, don’t use too many products on your wig because that leads to washing it more often.

  1. First, you need to take off your wig and brush it with a comb.
  2. Fill up your sink with lukewarm water and add some shampoo in it. Stir slightly.
  3. Now is the time to submerge your wig into the water. Gently massage and squeeze it while avoiding any harsh scrubbing. Get the shampoo all over the strands, as well as the lace and the cap.
  4. You can leave your wig to sit for a couple of minutes before rinsing out.
  5. Refill your sign with warm water, and this time, add some conditioner. Submerge the wig and let it sit for at least ten minutes. You want the conditioner to have time to work its magic.
  6. Rinse again and towel dry the wig. Place it on a dry towel and let it dry completely. You can also place it on a wig stand to dry, but only if the wig is straight. Curls could get ruined if you use this method.
  7. After the wig has dried, use a comb to thoroughly brush it and it’s ready to be worn again!

Cut the Wig

One of the easiest ways to make any wig look more realistic is by simply cutting or trimming it. Although hairpieces come in a variety of cool hairstyles, the particular one you chose might not be perfect for the shape of your face. A slight trim might make all the difference. In case you’re not that handy with scissors, you can ask a hair professional to cut the hairpiece for you. He/she will also know what suits your face best and customize your wig perfectly.

Change the Color Of The Wig

If the shade of your hairpiece looks a bit weird or natural, or if the color is too uniform, you might want to think about dyeing it. However, this can only be done on wigs made out of 100% human hair, you should never, under any circumstance, color a synthetic hairpiece because it will be completely ruined. Even some highlights or pops of colors might make all the difference; the balayage technique is really good for that. Coloring is also best left to the professionals, but if you’re confident in your dyeing skills, try it yourself.

Darken the Roots

If you look at natural strands, you can notice that the roots are usually slightly darker than the rest of the hair. That’s because locks can get lighter in color when exposed to the sun, while hair on the roots is young and darker. So, a cool trick that makes any wig look more realistic is simply darkening the root area. For example, if you have a medium-brown hairpiece, simply color the roots into a darker brown, and the transformation will be huge. This is quite easy to do at home, so there’s no need to go to a salon.

Pluck the Hairline

Another cool trick that many girls use is plucking the hairline. If you observe natural hair, you’ll notice that nobody has a perfect, dense hairline. This is the area where strands are usually thinner, and there are a lot of baby hairs sticking out. That’s what you want to achieve with the wig. Using tweezers, pluck some of the hairs from the hairline, and you’ll instantly notice how better it looks. Those who are too lazy to do that can simply buy pre-plucked wigs, and problem solved!

Buy a Wig with Fringe

As it was mentioned before, the natural look of the wig is hugely influenced by the hairline. If the hairline looks fake, everything else also won’t look good. A great trick to avoid the hairline altogether is to purchase a wig with a fringe. It not only looks fashionable, but it covers up the hairline imperfections. Isn’t that cool?

Style It

Some effort is needed to make your hairpiece flawless, so don’t expect to just put it on and go about your day. If you’re aiming for a natural look, spending a couple of extra minutes on styling can make a huge difference. There are no strict do’s and don’ts when it comes to styling because every wig is different, and you will know what works best for you. An additional tip is – if you notice that your curls are losing their shape, use a curler to restore that oomph.

Add Powder to Synthetic Wigs and Remove the Unnatural Shine

If you own a synthetic hairpiece, you know that it’s never perfectly realistic. One of the main issues is that weird sheen, which is a consequence of light bouncing off of plastic fibers. No natural strands are ever that shiny, so it needs to be reduced. A simple and effective way to do that is by adding powder to the wig or spraying some dry shampoo. This will create a nice matte effect that will make the synthetic hairpiece look a lot more natural.

Use Products to Make It Look Flawless

There are many hair products that you can use to keep your wig in a pristine condition. Apart from the obvious ones like shampoo and conditioner, you can also use natural oils if the strands are dry, products that are designed for keeping the texture in good condition, as well as hair masks. Find a hair routine that works best for you and stick to it.

If you have more questions about buying a wig or need additional help, you can go to your local wig store or ask a hair professional. Before every purchase, make sure that you have selected the right wig and that all the measurements are done right. It is always better to double-check than to have to return your wig and order another one.

Quick Access

  • Why Do People Wear Wigs?

  • There are a couple of different reasons why one might decide to start wearing a wig. The first is medical issues that result in partial or full hair loss. That can happen due to chemotherapy, alopecia, trichotillomania, hypothyroidism, anemia, telogen effluvium, autoimmune diseases, stress, hormones, protein deficiency etc. If you notice that your hair is getting thinner or falling out, you should go see a doctor to determine what is causing it and get appropriate treatment. During the treatment, you might want to opt for wearing a hairpiece until your natural strands recover fully.

    Losing hair is very unfortunate and can be hard on women and men, who often lose their confidence along with their precious locks. That’s why wearing a hairpiece, even temporarily, can make a huge difference. Another reason why people might want to buy a wig is to simply change their look. A hairpiece allows you to completely transform your hairstyle instantly without cutting or dyeing your natural strands. Although you can achieve a similar thing with extensions, a wig doesn’t require you to have long hair; you can have extremely short locks and still get that long style.

  • Does a Wig Look Natural?

  • You may remember wigs from many years ago that didn’t look realistic, but you can rest assured that they have come a long way. Modern ones, of good quality, are indistinguishable from your real locks. If the fit is right, no one will ever suspect that it’s not your real hair. Quality wigs have a realistic hairline and are made from real hair. Many celebrities are wearing wigs, and you usually do not even notice it. That’s why you should have no fear of it looking fake or unnatural.

  • How to Make a Wig Look More Realistic?

  • Regardless of which type of wig you choose, you can always use some cool tricks to make it look more natural. The first thing you can do is to ask your hair professional to style your hairpiece or even cut it so that it complements the shape of your face perfectly. The color is another important aspect if you want a seamless look. For example, if you have a very pale complexion, a black wig will look very strange.

    Choose a color that’s like your natural strands or a shade that suits your skin tone. Another cool trick that most wig wearers do is plucking some hairs from the wig hairline. The thing is that most wigs are equally thick all around, which is not the case with real strands because they’re usually slightly thinner around the hairline. By plucking a couple of hairs above your forehead, you create a perfect illusion. The final trick that we’d like to share with you is leaving your baby’s hair out so that it is visible right where the wig starts. This also creates a seamless look for your hairline.

  • How Long Does a Wig Last?

  • The longevity depends on the type of hairpiece and the hair on it. Most of the time, synthetic ones last for about one year, while human hair ones last for three years or more. Another thing that influences the lifespan is how well the wig is taken care of.

    If you follow all the maintenance instructions, you can add a few extra months of life. It also depends on whether you wear it every single day and whether you have multiple ones that you change up. If you want a hairpiece that you can wear for a long time, you should go for quality and real human hair. However, if you need it only temporarily, for a couple of months, synthetic ones will also do the job.

  • What is High Density Hair?

  • High-density hair means it is over 130% dense. If you’re looking for a lot of volume and thick strands, you should go above the default density. High-density hair is recommended for girls who have naturally very thick hair or simply want to have a very fancy and extravagant look.

    The highest density hair that you can get is about 200%. That is almost double the regular default density, which means you get A LOT of hair. If you want to look like a real diva with amazingly voluminous locks, then try higher-density hair; you will notice the difference.

  • Will Insurance Pay for My Wig?

  • Most insurance companies will pay for your wig, at least partially. However, the right term you need to use when speaking to your insurance is a cranial prosthesis. First, ask your doctor to write you a prescription for it, including the ICD-9 code.

    Then, you need to contact your insurance and ask them about their policy regarding cranial prostheses. Although stores will not accept any payments directly from your insurance, they can provide you with a receipt that you can use to get reimbursed by your insurance company. If they require any additional information, most stores will provide that, including AiryHair.

  • Can I Use My Hair to Make a Wig?

  • If someone you know is battling an illness and is in need of a hairpiece, maybe you have considered donating your hair. While that is very generous, it is not as easy to do so. First of all, hair from one donor is not enough to make a full wig, so your strands would be mixed with ones from other donors as well.

    Custom-made wigs are also very expensive and take a lot of time to make. If your loved one is suffering from a disease that’s making them lose hair rapidly, they don’t have that much time to waste and probably want their hairpiece as soon as possible. Also, human hair is not recommended for cancer patients and other people will serious illness because it’s hard for them to maintain it properly while being treated. Synthetic hair is a much better option because it can still look great but doesn’t require much maintenance.

  • What’s the Best Place to Buy Wigs?

  • Don’t just trust any company, even if it’s not AiryHair. You need to make sure that you’re dealing with a company that you can trust. Check that the store has a long history of selling hair and has a good range of quality products. Make sure that there is an address and a phone number through which you can contact the company. Beware of very low prices because there is often a very good reason why a store offers such cheap products.

    They are usually not made very well, use low-quality hair, and will not last very long. Some stores even try to sell you hair that has already been used or has defects. Also, beware of false branded wigs. Some online stores try to sell very cheap and badly made wigs under famous brands, so they charge a lot of money for it. We at AiryHair offer only quality products that withstand the test of time. The prices of our products are affordable and like those of other established stores. You simply need to follow your common sense and make sure to do some research before you buy anything.

  • How Can I Get a Free Wig?

  • In cases where your budget simply does not allow you to afford a hairpiece, there are some free options. If you live in the United States, you can try contacting the American Cancer Society or try to look for a similar organization in your country.

    They will provide you with a free wig if you are a cancer patient. But do keep in mind that those are very cheap and low quality since they’re free. These wigs, unfortunately, won’t be very comfortable and look as good. What you can do to make it look better is go to a hair professional to style it.

  • What’s a Wig Silk Top?

  • Although lace wigs are one of the best you can buy, a silk top is at the top of the list. It is also the most expensive one out of all we have mentioned previously. Hair is tied onto a lace cap using a knot, and while it looks very realistic, if you take a very close look at a lace wig, you might notice these knots. With a silk top, you get a layer of silk on top of the lace.

    What that does is conceal the knots below the silk so the only thing you see is individual hairs that look like they’re growing out of the hairpiece. The silky material is usually only at the top, where you would part your hair. This is the most seamless look that you can get, and a silk top wig will look flawless. You don’t have to worry about the knots being visible or using different tricks to conceal them. If you are a perfectionist and have a big budget, then definitely make sure to try out a silk top.

  • What Are Medical Wigs?

  • The term medical wigs refer to wigs that are suitable for cancer patients and people with moderate or severe hair loss. If you have lost most or all your hair, be very careful what hairpiece type you’ll choose.

    There are two main reasons for that. The first is that your scalp is probably sensitive, and the other is that you will need a very realistic hairpiece to hide your severe hair loss. Although the experience of losing hair is very traumatic and unfortunate, some wigs can make your life easier. You should stay away from standard caps and go with monofilament ones. If you can afford it, the best choice would be a full lace wig that has been 100% hand-tied.

    The lace material is very soft and light, which is perfect for a sensitive scalp. It will feel very comfortable and cozy. A full lace wig is also one of the most natural-looking ones, so it will look like real hair is growing out of your scalp. Isn’t that amazing?

  • What’s the Best Wig for Sensitive Scalp?

  • Any monofilament wig is good for a sensitive scalp. The best one is a hairpiece that’s made only out of lace. A general rule is the more lace, the better. A full lace wig is extremely lightweight, and the material is exceptionally soft and will not harm your scalp.

    However, if you want to be extra cautious, you can also wear a comfortable wig cap underneath for more protection. Just remember to avoid capless and standard caps because they’re much heavier, less comfortable, and the thick fabric might irritate the skin even more.

  • Do I Need a Full Wig if I Have Thin Hair or Partial Hair Loss?

  • If you don’t suffer from severe hair loss, you have the option of purchasing a hair topper. It will cover the areas where your hair is thinner and create a complete look. A hair topper can blend nicely with your natural strands and look very seamless. Now, if the hair loss is getting worse, a hairpiece might be a better option. Make sure that your doctor determines the cause of hair loss and appropriate treatment.

  • Are Wigs Safe to Wear?

  • Because of the incredible improvements in hairpiece construction, modern quality wigs are 100% safe to wear. Not only are they completely harmless to your strands and scalp, but they can also protect your natural locks. If you have problems with hair thinning or loss, wearing a hairpiece can let your real hair heal and grow again. All the application methods are very safe, so you should have no worries whatsoever.

  • Can I Apply Hair Wig Myself?

  • You can do that, and it’s quite simple. Regardless of which method you choose, you can find instructions online and do it in no time. It doesn’t take any special skill or tools. If you’re not feeling so confident about it, you can have it done professionally, but that takes money and time to set up the appointments.

    We recommend that you learn at least one of these methods so you can be completely independent and do it yourself. You will have better control of your wig and be able to fix it if something goes wrong.

  • How to Safely Remove a Wig?

  • This depends on which method you choose, but removing it is even easier than attaching it. If the hairpiece is sewn in, you need to find all the stitches and cut the thread. Be very careful when doing it because you don’t want to damage the wig or cut any hair.

    It is a good idea to have a friend help you with areas in the back where you can’t see. Once all the thread is out, the wig simply comes off. In the case of taping, detach the tape one by one. Do not pull too hard or yank on it, be careful and gentle. When using glue, you will need adhesive remover, which you apply on the glue or gel. That will make the wig detach very easily, and you simply need to remove any excess glue from your skin and the hairpiece.

  • How Do I Care for My Hair Wig?

  • Regardless of what type of hairpiece you have, brushing it regularly is essential. Keep it tangle-free, and it will look amazing all the time. Be careful while combing, and don’t go near the roots and the cap because you might damage it.

    You need to wash it regularly, but not too often. Once a week is fine if you wear it every day. The easiest way to wash it is to remove it first and place it in a sink. Add cold water and wig shampoo (you don’t want to use hot water for washing). Avoid scrubbing too hard; just gently massage the hair as well as the cap area.

    Afterward, rinse thoroughly with cold water. Now is the time to apply some conditioner and remember to avoid the cap area. Brush gently with your fingers and rinse the conditioner out. The best way to dry your wig is to place it on a stand and let it dry overnight. Avoid blow dryers as much as you can, and don’t brush until it’s completely dry.

  • Can I Use Regular Hair Products on My Wig?

  • You should only use products that are made specifically for wigs. That way, you can avoid any potential damage to your hairpiece and product buildup. There are great wig shampoos, conditioners, and other products available online, and you will certainly find the one you like. It is also recommended that you use special brushes and combs for detangling since a wig is more fragile than your natural hair.

  • Can You Dye or Color Hair Wigs?

  • If it’s a synthetic one, then definitely not. However, if it’s made from real human hair, in most cases you can dye it. You need to check with the store if the wig has been processed and dyed before, and that will also help you in deciding whether to color it or not.

    Dyeing is a process that you should not do yourself, no matter how experienced with coloring you are. Go to a professional and have them inspect the wig first and then color it if it’s deemed safe. In any case, never go for a lighter color; choose a darker one. Since wig dyeing is quite complicated, it is best to choose the correct color in the first place, and if you want to change your style later, purchase another hairpiece in a different color.

  • Can You Use Hot Tools on Wigs?

  • You should not use hot tools on synthetic or real hair wigs. The head might damage the strands and shorten the lifespan of the wig if used frequently. The best option is to buy a pre-styled hairpiece and have two different styles. That way, you don’t have to fear any damage, and you also save a lot of time.

  • Can You Shower or Swim with Hair Wig?

  • We do not recommend that you swim or shower while wearing your wig. Chemicals in the pool water can damage the delicate hairs, as well as saltwater. The strands will also get tangled and matted, which is a pain to brush through afterward. When going swimming, use a cap to protect your hair, and washing the wig is best done while it’s not attached.

  • Can You Sleep with Hair Wig?

  • Depending on how you attach your wig, it might be best that you take it off before you go to bed and place it on a holder. However, that means you must attach the wig every morning, which can take up a lot of time. Sleep with a wig only if you take proper measures to protect it.

    You either need to tie a scarf around your head or get your hair into a braid or a bun. If the hair is loose, it will be a nightmare in the morning to detangle, but not only that, some of the hairs may fall out or break.

  • What are Cushion Bands and Wig Grippers?

  • Cushion Band

    A cushion band is a type of headband that’s filled with a special gel. It is worn to make wig-wearing more comfortable. It is especially useful for people who have partial or complete hair loss. When someone is losing their hair, their scalp is very sensitive and sometimes even painful, so a cushion band is used to prevent any discomfort from wearing a hairpiece.

    Wig Grippers

    A wig gripper is a similar thing, but its main use is making the wig stay in place. It is made from velour or similar fabric, and it essentially grips the wig and keeps it from moving or falling off. Both are great wig accessories that you might want to consider because they will certainly make your life easier.

  • Do Wigs Come Pre-styled?

  • Some wigs do indeed come pre-styled. That’s a great thing because the wig is instantly ready to wear, and you don’t have to worry about styling it yourself. However, some women choose to customize their hairpiece and make it their own. Both options work great; it all depends on your preferences.

  • Do I Need a Wig Liner?

  • If the wig doesn’t seem as comfortable or if your scalp is sensitive due to hair loss, you might need some type of wig liner. Many women prefer wearing a cap underneath the hairpiece to protect their hair and simply get it out of the way.

    The most basic cap that you can find is made of a very comfortable and soft mesh material. The mesh is also very thin, so you will barely feel it on your head. However, if your scalp is very sensitive, we recommend a cap made from cotton. It is slightly thicker and will protect your scalp and make the wig more comfortable to wear. Wig liners are very easy to clean, and they can protect your wig as well. There are also wig grippers, which are not whole caps but headbands that make the headpiece more comfortable.

  • Can I Wear a Wig if My Head Sweats a Lot?

  • Of course, you can! That’s certainly not a problem whatsoever. The only thing you need to make sure is to wash your wig regularly because the sweat will be absorbed by the wig cap. Another thing you can do is to wear a wig liner because it will protect your hairpiece from getting sweaty and protect your scalp against irritation.

  • How Should I Store my Wig?

  • Proper storage is another important part of caring for your wig and protecting it against damage. We recommend that you purchase a wig stand along with the hairpiece because you’re certainly going to need it for storage. It is the best and easiest way to store your hair when you’re not wearing it and have it ready to go.

    A stand is perfect for drying your wig as well. The only tip is to avoid Styrofoam stands because they can mess with the fit of the wig. The hair needs to be in a dry and cool place, away from sunlight.

  • Are Wigs Only For People Suffering From Hair Loss?

  • Many women are under the impression that hairpieces are only worn by those who are experiencing some type of hair loss or have no hair at all. This is completely untrue because, today, wigs are used just as another beauty tool that helps us get a gorgeous hair makeover. That’s not to say that wigs aren’t a great way to cover up hair loss problems, but it can be used for all other purposes as well. So, if this was your reason for not trying out wigs, you now know that it isn’t true.

  • Are People Going to Know That I’m Wearing A Wig?

  • This is one of the big questions and something that all women worry about. Everybody wants their hairpiece to look 100% realistic, and that’s quite understandable. To achieve that, you need to purchase a hairpiece made out of real human hair, not synthetic, and one that has a cap made out of lace because those have the most realistic hairline. Some of the popular choices are lace front wigs, 360 frontal wigs, and full lace wigs. You can purchase all three from AiryHair at very affordable prices. All of our hairpieces look amazingly natural since they’re made out of Remy strands. But we should mention that, although you should try to make your hairpiece look as realistic as possible, wearing a wig is nothing to be ashamed of, and you should wear it with pride.

  • Can My Wig Detach?

  • Another thing that is not talked about often and that many women fear is the hairpiece coming off, especially in public. Unfortunately, it can happen, although it is very rare and happens only if the wig is not attached properly. Methods like taping or gluing, although usually very reliable, can sometimes cause the hairpiece to detach partially or fully. If you haven’t applied glue or tape correctly, it might not be able to hold the weight of the wig. But even if that happens, it’s not like the hairpiece is going to come flying off. A more realistic situation is that you’ll simply notice a bit of detachment somewhere on the hairline. If you have glue, you can salvage that pretty quickly.

  • Are Wigs Heavy?

  • Some of you may wonder if wigs are heavy and do they put a lot of pressure on your head. That is a logical question because the hairpiece consists of a lot of hair, plus the wig cap. But the answer is no because wig caps are designed in a way so that they redistribute the weight equally all around the head and are quite comfortable. The weight of the hair feels just like your normal hair would, so it’s not a big change. The only instance where you could feel some extra weight is if you get a dense and thick hairpiece with insane volume and length.

  • How Dirty Do Wigs Get?

  • This is also something not everybody wants to talk about, but it is worth mentioning for beginner users. If you wash the hairpiece and your natural strands regularly, everything will be nice and clean, and you won’t have any negative experiences. However, if you neglect washing your wig, it can get really dirty and smelly. The hair on your wig is just like real hair, and it will get dirty over time. Also, your scalp can get quite sweaty and oily, which makes the cap dirty as well. So although it should be obvious, yes, you do need to wash your hairpiece to keep it clean.

  • Will My Head Get Too Hot?

  • This depends on the type of wig you have. Cheaper wig types have a cap made out of really thick material, which means your head will probably get hot, especially during the summer months. That also contributes to the hairpiece getting dirtier more quickly. However, if you want to avoid that, you should get a hairpiece with a cap, at least partially made out of lace. The light mesh material allows your scalp to breathe, and air can get through to cool it down.

  • Can I Sleep With A Wig?

  • Although you could sleep with a wig on if it’s sewn in, it is generally not recommended. Although it can be quite a hassle to take it off each night, that way, you can extend the life of your new hair significantly. Tossing and turning while sleeping causes some serious tangling, which might ruin the hairpiece over time. Not to mention, it can put a lot of strain on your scalp. So to allow your natural strands and scalp to rest a little bit and keep your wig in a pristine condition, take it off at least every other night. Glue and tape methods are great for that because it’s easy to remove and reinstall in the morning.

  • Should I Tell My Boyfriend About My Wig?

  • So you have started dating this cute guy, but he still doesn’t know that your gorgeous locks are not yours, and it’s a wig. Some girls are hesitant to reveal their beauty secrets and often feel embarrassed about it. In our opinion, rocking a hairpiece is nothing to be ashamed of, so you should tell your boyfriend. The thing is, he’s going to find out anyway once you get a bit more intimate because he’ll be able to touch it. That’s why it’s not a good idea to start your relationship by hiding a big part of yourself. Guys love beautiful hair, but they don’t care how you got it. They are used to girls using different beauty tricks to look sexier and more attractive, so it’s not a big deal for them.

  • I Didn’t Attach My Hairpiece Properly, What Should I Do?

  • If it’s your first time trying to put on a wig, some mistakes could happen no matter how closely you follow the tutorials. That’s why you should be as careful as possible. In case something goes wrong or you simply don’t like the final result, the best thing to do is simply remove the hairpiece and try again. It’s fine if you don’t get it right the first time because most women don’t. You need to try a couple of times to get a hang of it and find your way of doing it. In case you’re completely helpless at doing this yourself, you can always set up an appointment at a salon.

  • What to Do If I Damage My Wig?

  • If you damage your hairpiece due to incorrect attachment or neglect, that’s a slightly bigger problem. There is a possibility that you’ll be able to save your new hair, but that largely depends on the type of damage done. For example, if you have accidentally ripped the cap, you might be able to sew it back up. If the hair itself is damaged or tangled up, you might be able to revive it with extensive treatments and a lot of brushing. But sometimes, unfortunately, there is nothing to be done, and in that case, you simply have to purchase new hair. So, it can’t be emphasized enough that you should be very careful while handling your wig to avoid all of this.

  • What If My Hairpiece Isn’t The Right Size?

  • So your brand new wig has finally arrived, but upon trying it out, you find out that it’s too big or too small. That can be quite disappointing and frustrating. While some stores offer returns, many do not, so take extra time to choose the right size. You need to measure the circumference of your head; that way, you will know exactly what size you are. Guessing it’s not a good way to do it, and you’ll end up paying a lot of money for a wig that does not fit you.

  • Will Wig Wearing Damage My Natural Strands?

  • A myth that has been circling is that wearing hairpieces damages your natural strands. It’s interesting that some people think that because actually the opposite is true – wigs actually protect your natural strands and allow them to be restored. That’s why they’re also known as a protective style. If your natural hair is damaged in any way or poor condition, keeping it safe under a wig can be quite beneficial because it’s not exposed to any outside conditions. So to answer the question simply no, wearing a wig will not damage your natural strands in any way.

  • Can I Wear A Wig If I Have A Sensitive Scalp?

  • Many girls suffer from a sensitive scalp, especially those who suffer from hair loss. So, you might wonder if wearing a wig with a sensitive scalp is painful. The answer is yes, but you do need to take some precautions. We recommend using a full lace wig because it’s made out of a very comfortable and soft mesh material. Also, make sure to wear a wig cap to keep your scalp safe.

  • What If I Want To Stop Wearing My Hairpiece?

  • Many people think that once you start wearing a wig, you have to do so forever, and there’s no going back. That’s not true, and you can stop wearing it whenever you want to. Although wigs are great, you might get bored with them or simply want to take a break (which is a good thing to do now and again). It might be a bit unusual to go back to your natural hair because you got used to long, gorgeous locks, but that feeling goes away pretty quickly. Remember that although hairpieces are flawless, your natural strands are beautiful as well.

  • Is It Strange to Wear Other People’s Hair?

  • If you opt for a Remy hairpiece, which is what most women usually do, the fact is that you’re going to be wearing someone else’s hair on your head. Hair is collected from real people who are known as donors, and after the strands have been processed, they are sewn on caps to make a wig. Although the notion that you’re wearing hair from other people might sound weird to some, it’s not so unusual. At the end of the day, it’s just hair, and all of us have it.

  • Is It True That Remy Wigs Are Very Expensive?

  • This is a common myth when it comes to hairpieces, so the answer is – no; Remy wigs are not as expensive as you might think. It is possible to buy a high-quality hairpiece made out of real human hair from $50 – $120, depending on the type. That’s not a lot of money if you consider what you get for it.
