What is a wig-cap? How to use it?
Wig caps work as a protective barrier against a sensitive scalp.
They make sure your wig feels comfortable and safe during your daily use. If the use of a wig cap helps you achieve better comfort, then it is the way for you.
However, if a wig cap does not suit your needs and does not give you additional benefits, then of course it is better to set it aside.
For our customers without hair:
• Provides a protective barrier to the scratching and unpleasant sensation that can sometimes occur to your scalp. • Provides an extra layer of comfort if you have a sensitive scalp.
• Provides some firmness for the wig to support and helps prevent the wig from slipping.
For our customers with hair:
• effectively hides your existing hair.
• Flatten your natural hair and keep it as close to your scalp as possible, so your wig will look completely natural without visible lumps and bumps.
- Some wig users say that a wig cap can feel warm. This in combination with the weight of the wig can sometimes lead to a feeling of discomfort. Because many wigs are made of nylon liners, the fabric can sometimes react with the skin and cause the scalp to sweat more than normal. The wig can also be felt to be slightly inhibiting and give a slight headache if worn for too long.
Wearing a wig cap is a completely personal preference. Our advice is to try and go with what you feel most comfortable with!
Do I need an adhesive for a wig?
All our wigs have adjustable straps and combs (for those with hair) that ensure that the wig is stuck on the head, so the only reason to use the adhesive is for the appearance of the wig. Generally, adhesive is recommended if you want a realistic hairline effect and feel 100% safe.
You can use special adhesives and double-sided tape for wigs. You can avoid using adhesive if your hairstyle allows it (covering the wig lining).
For our customers with hair:
A lace wig can be sewn in with your hair (braids). It is one of the more durable methods you can try without resorting to glue, tape or other adhesives. A sewn-on wig can be very difficult to detect.
To make sure the wig looks natural on our head, our primary goal is to make the wig 'blend' into the skin. It includes:
• cutting / cutting lace in the right way
• gluing the edges of the periphery along the skin
• styling of baby hair by cutting / cutting them (with gel)
• use of the foundation make-up
1. Prepare your hair and apply a wig cap.
If you have no hair, this step is optional. Make sure the hair is fixed so that there are no dents or uneven areas when you put on the wig. Whether you have long or short hair, be sure that all your natural hair has been withdrawn from your hairline to keep it hidden.
We supply our customers with nylon caps, which is not really necessary with our wig construction, but useful to conveniently hide all unwanted hair.
2. Adjust a wig on your head
It's very important that you make sure the wig is fitted to your head before any other steps.
Adjust the size with with a back strap and make sure your hairline is in correct place. Only then you can move to the steps.
3. Prepare your hair for cutting
Cutting the lace should be precise. In order to avoid any disturbs, put your hair in the back and secure with bobby pins (or similar) for your own convenience.
4. Cut-out an ear space
Divide the cut area from the rest of hair. You can do it by a comb.
Then cut the piece that will allow to show your ear and make the rest of a lace flip and lay behind it.
5. Cut the hairline
Cutting the hairline depends strongly on the preferences of the user.
We recommend leaving extra space (apx. 1,5 cm) for easier glue application and blending purposes.
Our wigs are full-lace, it means you should cut the lace all the way around, for the natural look and updos possibility.
6. Use an adhesive
Adhesive depends on the preferences of the user. Wipe the skin around your hairline with a cotton pad dipped in cosmetics of your choice to remove any excess oils and impurities from your skin. It will help the glue to sit better on the skin.
7. Personal touches and blending
Style your hairline according to your personal preferences. You can create some baby hair for more natural look.
Use your makeup to blend the lace with a skin.
• Use wide combs.
• Try to be careful.
Wig hair fades into the shade, it is quite normal. The more careful you are in the use of the wigs, the less they fade in the nuances - like with natural hair.
Our natural hair are supplied with the oils from the scalp. Because of that - they become greasy faster then hair on the wig. We recommend to wash our wigs every 14 days of use. Washing increase durability, but it decreases the lifespan of our wig. Do not wash your hair more than it’s necessary.
Oils from our scalp also naturally nutrite hair. Lack of them need to be filled by another sources:
• shampoos that are created for dry hair
• hair masks from different kind of oils (like Moroccan or coconut)
• you can also search for the special products just for the wigs care
• Before washing, brush wig remove any teasing or tangles.
• Place your wig in a basin or sink with cool to lukewarm water. (Water should be at room temperature or slightly warmer.)
• Apply a very small drop of high-quality mild shampoo to the wet hair (avoid the scalp area). Do NOT rub the hair or scalp as you would with your own.
• Comb the shampoo through the hair from top to bottom by your fingers using gentle downward strokes one section at a time. Do not scrub the hair.
• Gently apply some of the soapy water to the inside of the cap. Do not scrub the cap.
• Rinse again with cool to lukewarm water from the top down and from the inside of the cap to remove excess shampoo.
• Gently blot hair with a towel.
• You may now apply some conditioner to the damp hair. Avoid the scalp area as the conditioner can loosen the knots.
• Rinse away some of the conditioners with cool to lukewarm water only from the inside of the cap allowing a small amount to remain in the hair.
• Gently blot hair with a towel
• It is best to allow your human hair wig to air dry on a wig stand as this is most gentle on the hair fibers.
• To restyle your human hair wig, you may use a blow dryer, curling iron or flat iron on low heat settings only or use electric rollers on a medium setting.
Do not use straighteners or curls too often. This will cause the hairpiece to lose gloss, dryness and slight breakage.
• Direct sunlight will fade the hair so avoid storing your wig where it will be exposed to light.
• Do not wear your hairpiece while sleeping. It may result in hair loss, breakage and matting.
• Lighter hair colors are more delicate than darker colors because additional processing is needed to achieve the light colors.
• Avoid contact with chlorinated water, sea water, and hot water to avoid damage to your wig.
