Our Ultimate Wig Guide

Sometimes investing in a good wig is the best decision you can make for your hair. Whether you’ve decided on a full cap or partial cap hair replacement, you have many different styling options at your disposal. However, if you’re a first-time wig owner, there are a few things you need to know to maintain your wig. Remember: your wig needs for just as much as or more care than your natural hair. Be sure to incorporate these tips to help your wig look fabulous!

Cleaning Your Wig

When learning how to care for a wig, the first thing you need to learn is how to clean it. If you wear your wig daily, it needs to be washed once a week at least. If you don’t wear it as often, it can be washed every other week or so.

Be sure to invest in the proper wig shampoo, since it’s much milder and will be softer on your wig hair strands. Simply fill your sink with cool water, add in some of your wig shampoo and slowly work your hands through the hair like you would wash your natural hair. Allow it to air dry as much as possible before styling it.RemySoft wig shampoo

Styling Your Wig

Styling your wig is just as easy, if not easier, than styling your natural hair. Using your wig shampoo will help to keep the hair strands feeling natural and can be worked with most brushes, curling irons, hair dryers and more. Just be sure to take extra care so you don’t damage the cap itself. With the right wig hair care products, you’ll never have to worry about a bad hair day again!

Storing Your Wig

One of the most overlooked aspects of how to care for a wig is the storage method. The best places to keep your wig would be on a designated wig stand, a Styrofoam head or even in a box on its own. Just make sure you don’t have it near a window where it could absorb any sunlight and damage the strands or change colors. Your main purpose when storing your wig is to maintain its shape and color so it will look great for a long time.

How to Store Your Wigs

There really isn’t a perfect way to store your wigs, but there are plenty of wrong ways. Taking care of your wig is important if you want it to remain looking full and maintain its shape for a long time. No matter if you have a full cap or partial cap hair replacement, you can’t just throw it on the bed or on the floor when you get home at the end of the day. Proper storage of your wigs will go a long way in ensuring you get plenty of use out of them. Here are some tips on how to properly store your wigs.

Ensure Clean and Dry Wigs Before Storage

When learning about how to care for a wig, you probably heard many times how to clean one. One mistake people make is washing their wigs and then putting them in a storage box before they are completely dry. This could cause the wig to lose its shape, among other things, and possibly make it unwearable the next time you need it. Always use a good wig shampoo and conditioner and dry it completely prior to storing anywhere.

Store Inside a Box

People who don’t wear wigs on a daily basis will sometimes store them in the box they came in. Before you do that, you need to keep the shape of the wig by putting in a paper insert and covering the outer part with a hair net. As long as it is completely dry after using the wig shampoo and conditioner, this is a good method for long-term storage.

Store on a Mannequin Head

If you wear wigs on a daily basis, then storing them in a box would just be inconvenient. Instead, you should invest in a mannequin head for easy access and storage. This is a much better option than putting them on a bedpost or on your dresser, since you want to maintain the shape as much as possible. Many mannequins are space-efficient, so you can place them on your vanity or dresser without cluttering up the area.

People who don’t spend the time learning how to care for a wig will be frustrated when the time comes to style it. Properly storing wigs is one of the most important and will allow you to protect your investment in quality hair pieces. For more information on wig care, be sure to contact us.

You probably spend a lot of time picking out your clothes when you have to go in for a job interview. But after getting your wardrobe just right, you can’t neglect your hair! Interviewers notice every little detail about you and will judge you based on their first impression.If you’re just having a bad hair day, you can always turn to wig care products to save the day. Here are some of the best hairstyles to help you nail the interview and land your new job.

RemySoft shiny hair extensions1. Loose Curls

The loose curls hairstyle offers a professional appearance with a little bit of relaxation as well. Getting those curls to hang loosely may require some quality hair care products, so be sure you have everything you need to make it happen. This is the perfect style if you’re interviewing for an inside office job where you need to look professional every day.

2. Sleek and Long

Long and straight hair may not come off as professional, but it can be if you work it properly. Pull it back behind your shoulders and away from your face so it doesn’t become a distraction to you or your interviewers. If you have shorter hair and need just a little more length to pull this hairstyle off, you can opt for shiny hair extensions to make it happen!

3. Natural Waves

Naturally wavy hair shows a relaxed personality since the hairstyle isn’t too overdone. However, the relaxed nature of the hairstyle still is professional enough to look great in an interview. With the help of some quality hair care products, you can create some natural waves that will be sure to impress.

4. Curled Side Ponytail

The basic ponytail probably isn’t a good idea for a job interview hairstyle. However, curling your hair and finishing it off to the side gives it a professional, yet relaxed look. The important thing to remember is to keep it away from your face so it won’t be distracting during the interview. If your hair is too short to pull this style off, shiny hair extensions could be your solution.

Our Top Tips for Styling Your Wig

When it comes to wig ownership, wearing a wig versus actually styling it are two totally different animals. To wear a wig, all you have to do is fit on a wig cap, slip on your wig and you’re ready to go. Styling a wig is done prior to wearing the wig and involves quite the intricate process. If you’re learning how to care for a wig, having ample knowledge of styling techniques is an important part of the maintenance process. In this blog article, you’ll find our best tips for styling a wig so you can enjoy all the versatility it has to offer.

Wig Spray Works Wonders

As you get used to owning wigs, you’ll learn wig spray is one of the most valuable wig care products you could own. Wig spray can help your wig more easily retain the style you’ve set it into, lessening its chances of falling limp as the day wears on. There are two specific ways of using your wig spray, but neither is considered the best option. It all depends on what you’re more comfortable with. You can either:

  • Spray from a distance of six inches, combing through your wig’s follicles with your fingers and paying special attention to its roots, or
  • Spray a fine mist from a 12 inch distance all around your head, from back to front.

 

Regardless of how you apply your wig spray, you’ll want to make sure not to overuse it. Doing so will not only weigh down the hair, but it can cause it to need more washing than it should, which can harm its overall lifespan. For best results, we recommend applying wig spray only after applying wig conditioner and using it only as needed.

Do you know how to care for a wig?

Colorize

Sometimes your wig doesn’t need a whole new style to look good! In cases like this, you may be happier with your wig’s look simply by changing its color. Be warned you can’t dye a wig to the same extent you would your natural hair. Generally it’s best to go with a lighter or darker shade within the same color family your wig rests in. A good wig conditioner will help to protect your wig throughout the coloring process so be sure you’ve got a bottle on hand!

Add a Professional Touch

A subtle trim can also help spruce up a wig. Sometimes the hair installed in your wig can become a bit too much, after all, which is when there’s no better time to snip away at a few strands. However, it’s better to seek out a professional for this kind of work. They will know exactly how much to remove and can adjust the layering to keep your wig looking natural and attractive. A stylist can also help to customize the cut of the wig according to your specific tastes, especially if it’s brand new or just doesn’t look the way you want it to.

These aren’t the only tips for how to care for a wig, but they’re a great way to jazz things up if your old favorite has suddenly grown stale. Contact us to learn other ways to take the best care of your wig!

How to Keep Your Remy Wig Safe and Comfortable This Summer

We'll give you only the best tips on how to care for a wig.You want to look good every time of year, but especially during the summer. The problem, however, comes from all of the heat bearing down, persistent and at times overpowering. If you’re a wig owner, this can present a special conundrum altogether. You don’t want to go without your wig for the day during an outing, but you don’t want to sweat it out either. What is there to do?

With these tips from us, you’ll not only know how to care for a wig throughout the summer months, but be able to rock it just as easily as you do during the rest of the year!

Cover Yourself

RemySoft full cap partial cap hair replacementOne easy way to help your wig look its best this summer is to protect it in the same way you would your natural hair, with a shady accessory like a hat! A hat, scarf or similar addition to your outfit is a great way to stay cool and block your wig from those harmful UV rays. Best of all, a well-coordinated piece of head wear will boost your summer wardrobe tenfold! If you’re worried about your wig losing its grip as you take your hat off, you can always invest in a liner. This will take care of any sweat beading up along your hairline and keep your wig nice, dry and tidy.

Ditch the Cap

While this idea may certainly sound unorthodox, you’ll be able to stay that much cooler if you stop relying on a wig cap during the summer. In fact, you can buy wigs that are perfectly wearable without a cap! You won’t have to worry about the quality of the wig, either. Wigs without a cap are just as wearable as wigs with caps. The only differences are breathability and their weight because they’re designed to be worn during warm weather months.

Invest in Protective Products

Because wigs cannot replenish their moisture the way hair attached to the scalp can, a wig is far more prone to heat damage and dryness, which shortens its lifespan tremendously. To fix this, start using wig shampoo and conditioner. This will help keep the wig hydrated and less vulnerable to harmful sun rays, enabling you to wear your wig as much as you want, even when it’s scorching out! There are other products you can invest in as well for the health of your wig. This includes sprays meant to boost the sheen of your wig. Finally, you should give your wig a nice shampoo after wearing it for five times in a row, at the most. While this may seem excessive, taking the time to perform a wig wash will help eliminate damage from your sweat.

There are many other ways to protect your wig from the summer heat, but these few suggestions are some of the most important to follow. We at RemySoft can help you with any dimension of your remy wig care needs, including full cap and partial cap hair replacement and more. Contact us to learn how you can help your wigs stay at their fullest potential!

With a new wig comes an undoubtable level of excitement as you enjoy how it makes you look and feel. However, in order to maintain your great new style, you’ll first need to know how to care for your wig. This article is written to teach you that exact task. There are a number of important steps to wig care you need to know to care properly for your wig.

Where Do I Keep My Wig?

While the temptation may be there, you can’t wear your wig 24/7. Therefore, you should have a place for it to go whenever it isn’t in use. Keep it away from light and heat and on a wig stand. You should invest in one as soon as possible. It’s great not just for your home, but for when you travel as well. A wig box is also vital to the latter circumstance because it ensures your wig’s safety.

How Do I Clean My Wig?

Washing a wig doesn’t work in quite the same way as it would with hair attached to your scalp. You have to use much gentler methods for a wig. The company that made your wig will supply you with a guide to cleaning it properly. There’s a specific process you should follow.

First, fill a bowl with lukewarm water. You can then use wig shampoo to get the wig clean. Focus on the ends and comb the suds through for maximum coverage. Then use the bowl of water you prepared before to rinse the shampoo out. Afterward, you can towel off the wig with gentle patting motions, comb it and return it to your wig stand. The drying process should take around two days to finish, after which you can wear your wig as normal.

How Do I Style My Wig?

Learn more about how to care for synthetic wigs!Styling your wig will be the first step in your new wig ownership and, much like the washing process, will take gentler methods. Again, you’ll need a full arsenal of wig care products on hand.

Remy wigs are far more susceptible to heat damage than your natural hair is because they aren’t being regularly nourished and replenished by minerals and other elements that keep our hair healthy. Try to avoid using heat as much as possible when styling your wig, especially when it comes to blow dryers! Blow dryers can melt the glue adhering the cap to the hair of your wig. This will cause it to fall apart. If you have to use any styling tools, put them on the least intense setting.

We hope this guide will be useful for caring for your new remy wig and enjoying it to the fullest! On our site, you’ll also find tips on how to care for synthetic wigs. For other advice and general inquiries, feel fee to contact us!

Buying Wigs and Extensions: The Differences Between Remy and Synthetic

So you’ve made the decision to buy a wig. What’s next? Well, you’ll have to pick the material you want it to be made from! There are two main wig materials: synthetic and real, or “remy.” Both of these wig types come with their own advantages and disadvantages. Which one is best for you depends upon your needs and lifestyle. Keep reading to learn about all of these factors so you can come to the best possible decision.

Synthetic Wigs

Protect your wigs with leave in conditioner.

Leave in conditioner protects your wigs.

While synthetic wigs used to be made from flimsier materials, they can now be constructed to feel nearly as real as human hair! This type of wig is perfect for those who are constantly on the go. Synthetic wigs can be worn immediately. You don’t need to style them as you would a human hair wig because it’s already been styled and is designed to hold its shape for an indefinite amount of time. Best of all, you won’t have to worry about your wig losing its shape under the same circumstances human hair would. This enables you to carry on with your day and look great in the process!

Synthetic wigs, however, aren’t necessarily the best choice for those looking to style their wigs every so often. As stated before, the styles of synthetic wigs are made to last. However, they don’t have a long lifespan in general. The most you can hope to maintain your wig is six months. In order to wear a new style, you’ll either have to buy a new wig or special tools to style the wig without damaging it. Many synthetic wigs are sensitive to the heat from styling tools and will distort if exposed to it.

Remy Wigs

Remy wigs are made of human hair, meaning they’re the most lifelike you can get. They’re the perfect choice for those who want the full effect from their wig, from texture to being able to manipulate it as you please. Compared to synthetic wigs, remy wigs sport a higher price tag, but with the larger price comes greater benefits!

Due to how human hair wigs are made, with their need for stronger processing chemicals and other treatments, you will ultimately receive a much better product than you would if you bought a synthetic wig. You’ll need to invest in wig care products, such as wig shampoo and conditioner, to own a remy wig. You may want to consider leave in conditioner for its regular care. You will need to take care of it in the same way you care for your natural hair to maintain its life span. You also will have to style the wig before you can wear it. Luckily, remy wigs can be worn for more than one year, allowing you more flexibility in how you wear your wig and more longevity for your buck!

On our website, you’ll find more information on how to care for a wig. For more advice, feel free to get in touch with us! We want to help you look and feel your absolute best!

A Step-By-Step Guide to Picking Out the Best Wig for You!

No matter your reasons, the process of choosing a wig is undoubtedly a nervous event for many. There are so many styles and options the simple act of browsing can be overwhelming. You may wonder, “What type of wig works for me? What color should I get? What style suits my face shape best? What about quality?” We fully understand your concerns! That’s why, to help you know what to look for, we’ve put together this handy shopper’s guide just for you!

Pick a Style

Before you go into any other detail of your wig shopping journey, you should first find the perfectly styled wig. You can base this judgment off a number of factors, from your facial shape to the weight of the wig to your comfort level and most importantly, your own personal preferences. You ultimately want to choose a wig that makes you both look and feel great! There are all types of lengths and textures to choose from,so don’t be afraid to experiment!

Measure Your Cap Size

After you’ve picked out the perfect style of wig for you, you want to be sure it will fit on your head! Luckily, wigs come in a wide assortment of sizes and can even be altered to fit better. You will have to do some measuring to figure out your cap size. This step will involve measuring your head to get its circumference. Be sure to start with your hairline and wrap your measuring tool around your head until you wind up back where you’ve started. This is the best way to get an accurate measurement.

What Will Your Wig Be Made From?

Always use wig shampoo and conditioner.

Be sure you use wig shampoo and conditioner.

The material of your wig is just as important as its size and style. You want only the best looking wig, as well as the most convenient type for you. Wigs can be made from two materials: synthetic or real human hair. While synthetic hair is made to feel natural, they don’t beat out human hair in that regard. Synthetic wigs are best for those on a budget and who don’t want to spend a lot of time on styling. These wigs can be worn for up to six months.

Human hair wigs will automatically look realistic and are the best option for those who want to style their wig frequently. While it’s pricier, it’s well worth the amount! Human hair wigs will keep for at least a year. No matter which wig style you choose, be sure to look into the right wig care products. Now would be a good time to invest in wig shampoo and conditioner!

What Color Will You Choose?

Color may be the last part of our guide, but its important isn’t! Wigs come in an incredible variety of colors, from bright, unnatural hues to shades identical to your natural hair color. What color you choose is up to you and your preferences.

No matter which stage of the wig buying process you’re in, we at RemySoft are here to help you! We carry a vast array of products designed to keep your new wig, including full cap and/or partial cap hair replacement, beautiful for longer. To learn more, contact us!

Complete Your Halloween Costume with the Perfect Hairstyle

Halloween is just around the corner. If you’ve been planning your costume for this year, one of the most important aspects should be your hair style. While many people buy expensive wigs for the event, simple hair extensions and the use of quality hair products for remy hair can do the trick. The following tips will help you create an epic Halloween hair style.

The Mermaid Look

Hair extensions can help complete your mermaid look.

Mermaids can be a great option for a Halloween costume if you want something exotic and different from the typical horror costumes. To create a classy look for your hair, apply mousse to slightly damp hair and use a curling wand to create loose curls. Separate the curls a bit with your fingers for the ideal mermaid look.

A Retro 50s Style

Many people love to dress up in past decades for this holiday. After you have your costume all ready to go, you’ll need to find ways to fix up your hair to match. For a Lucille Ball look, you don’t have to buy a wig or cut your hair to achieve the look you want. Instead, separate out a section of hair at the front and center of your head. Pull the rest of your hair back and pile it into a loose bun. With the hair you set aside, curl it under with a large barreled curling wand. Tie a handkerchief around your head and you’ll be ready to go.

Game of Thrones Braids

Create great looks with hair extensions.

If you have shorter hair, hair extensions can help.

One of the most popular trends today is the Game of Thrones series. This means more people will be dressing up as these characters this year. Fortunately, this look isn’t one that requires a full wig. While you may need hair extensions, you should be able to create this look without investing a lot of money. Simply brush your hair down straight and braid thin sections of hair at the front sides of your head. Wrap the braids around to the back of your head and secure underneath your straight hair with bobby pins.

A Medieval Maiden

Create a softer look with hair products for remy hair.

Hair products for remy hair create a softer look.

Gently pull your hair to one side over your shoulder to the front and braid it loosely, securing it with an elastic band.

While you may need a wig, along with a wig shampoo and conditioner, you can create many great hair styles that complement your Halloween costume. While it may be the focal point of the night, you can really pull off the complete look by focusing on how you style your hair.

How to Care for Your Curly Hair, Extensions and Wigs

Learn how to handle curly hair with quality hair care products.

Quality hair care is a must with curly hair.

Whether your hair is naturally curly or you achieve the look with the use of hair extensions and wigs, learning how to properly care for it is essential. Without quality hair care, curly hair can become frizzy and may be difficult to style. In addition to using a sulfate free shampoo and conditioner, as well as a leave in conditioner, these tips will help you manage your hair so it always looks great.

Washing

Taking care of your curly hair all starts with the use of a sulfate free shampoo and conditioner to keep it clean and healthy. Curly hair has a tendency to dry out easily, which means you only need to wash it a few times a week to keep it in good condition. When you do wash your hair, make sure you massage the scalp well to remove dirt and oils that can slow hair growth.

Moisturize

Due to the issues of drying out, moisturizing is a critical element of quality hair care. A good leave in conditioner can be a great way to lend your hair the moisture it needs to be healthy and frizz-free. While this type of conditioner is great for regular use, occasionally using a deep conditioner or oil treatment can help improve the health of your curly hair.

Drying

Another common difficulty in taking care of your curly hair is drying. Unlike straight hair, it’s best not to rub your hair vigorously. Instead, use a soft cotton t-shirt or towel to pat your hair dry and gently squeeze out excess moisture. Don’t use a hair dryer; allow your hair to air dry. Avoid brushing wet curls or running your fingers through them to prevent frizz. If you must use a blow dryer, use a diffuser and dry your hair from the underside.

Other Tips

To keep your hair looking great and cooperating with your styling needs, avoid using a brush. Only comb through your hair with a wide-toothed comb. It’s also important to avoid using heat whenever possible and never use hairsprays or mousse because of the high alcohol content, which can dry out your hair further and make it crunchy.

Curly hair can be beautiful, but it can also be difficult to manage. It doesn’t matter if your hair is naturally curly or you have chosen curly hair extensions or wigs to create the look you want. Quality hair care is required to ensure your hair remains healthy and in good condition. Using a good sulfate free shampoo and conditioner is an absolute necessity to keep your hair moisturized and frizz-free.

If you’re looking for quality hair products to keep your curly hair healthy and free of frizz, contact us. We have created a formula that provides the moisture and care your curly hair requires.
