For women with hair loss, a new wig isn't just a purchase that shows on the outside -- the transformation that comes from wearing a wig can be life changing! Whether due to medical reasons, stress, or age, hair loss can be an enormous blow to self-esteem, even interfering with participation in social activities. Purchasing a wig or topper is a big step that takes a lot of research, and even a little courage. If you've chosen to purchase a human hair wig or topper, it's taken even a little MORE courage! A quality human hair wig or hairpiece can cost quite a lot... and that's why caring for it properly is so important! With proper care, you can expect your human hair wig or hairpiece to look great for about a year. Consider any wear you get out of it beyond that to be a bonus. Even the best wigs that are well cared for still have a lifespan. The goal is to extend that lifespan for as long as possible. This blog will help you get as much life out of your wig as possible.
The first thing you should know is that even though your new wig or hairpiece is human hair, you cannot use bio hair products on it. The reason is simple: bio hair gets scalp oils that are released into your hair every time you comb or brush. There's nothing in the world better for your hair than natural scalp oils, and your wig doesn't get them. Bio hair products aren't made to add the kind of moisture and oils that your wig will need, and if you use bio hair products on your wig, the hair will dry out, frizz, and it may never recover even with intense and expensive moisturizing treatments. So, the very day you purchase your wig, make sure to purchase your wig supplies.
We recommend Jon Renau human hair products to all our clients. You can choose either a full size wig kit, or the travel size. Both contain the same four wet products:
The full size kit includes the Jon Renau Paddle Brush, and the travel kit only contains the Jon Renau Wide-Tooth Comb. If purchasing just the travel kit, you'll want to include the paddle brush with your purchase.
And that's all you need to know to get started with human hair wigs! From here, if you want to use a curling iron to add waves and curls, pick up a bottle of Jon Renau Heat Treat Thermal Spray to protect your hair by giving it an easy release from hot tools.
