Learn how to properly wear a wig

A great thing about hair care is that you have a diversity of options. You can wear your hair down, lock your curls, and experiment with bold cuts and colours. Or you can wear chic headpieces. Many women choose to wear wigs. Did you really think that celebrities are rocking their natural hair? No, they wear wigs and extensions. Using a hairpiece saves you the trouble of experimenting with your hair. You do not have to cut off your natural hair or use harsh colouring chemicals. Also, using a toupee helps mask problems like thinning hair. Weavings that are made of natural hair give you a more natural look. You can even have the hairpiece designed to suit you.

DO have your wig customized

You have a wig made from the highest quality hair. But how does it actually look? Chances are that your hairpiece is not cool. If this is the case, take it to a hairstylist to have it cut into a shape and style that suits you. Have bangs cut or have the hair dyed in a contemporary colour. But would you not like to spare yourself of this trouble? Have a hairpiece custom-made for you. The toupee will be styled according to your preferences.

DO keep the wig from losing its shape

Toupees need help to maintain their shape. When you are not using the hairpiece, keep it on a wig stand. A wig stand is affordable and it will not be affected by water or maintenance products. Make sure to choose a stand that matches the shape of the toupee.

DO wear wig cap

You should wear netting over your natural hair when wearing a toupee to keep the natural hair in place. If you do not want to bother with wearing a wig cap, then cut your hair short. The hairpiece will stay on and you will not have to make retouches.

DO NOT choose a bold wig colour

If you are not a celebrity or the type of person that likes to stand out, there is no point in wearing a hairpiece in an outrageous colour. What you should do is go for the natural look. For a natural look, choose a colour that suits your complexion. A good choice is a colour within the shade of your natural hair colour. Equally important is to make sure that the weaving matches your eyebrows.

DO NOT put the wig over wet hair

Putting a hairpiece over wet hair is a huge mistake. This creates a breeding ground for germs and fungus. It is important to make sure that your hair is completely dry before putting on the toupee. You should never ever place the wig on wet hair.

DO NOT use regular hair care products

If you have a natural hair weaving, use shampoos or conditioners specially made for hairpieces. They get the toupee cleaned and make the colour last longer. You cannot use products that you use for your own locks.
