Human Hair Wig

When you are dealing with your hair loss, the last thing on your mind is a human hair wig. You are too busy panicking about hiding the bare areas of your head along with trying to figure out why you are beginning to suffer from hair loss. Once you begin to consider wearing a wig, most women don’t believe that they will ever look or feel normal again. They decide to accept the fact they their hair will never look natural again and everyone will know they are wearing a wig. However, with a human hair wig, your hair loss will be the farthest thing from your mind. A human hair wig allows you to regain your pride and confidence when dealing with sudden or expected hair loss.

A human hair wig is made with just that, human hair! This means that your wig will appear natural and unnoticed by friends, family, and even total strangers. Because a human hair wig is made with natural hair fibers instead of synthetic fibers, you have more options when customizing your wig. A human hair wig can be cut, styled, and colored the way you want it. So whether you want to keep your original hairstyle, or get a little adventurous, a human hair wig eliminates the usual restrictions that are placed when wearing a synthetic wig. A human hair wig can also be styled using heating products, like curling irons and hair dryers, without fear of immediate damage. Like normal hair, diligent use of such products will cause damage over time, but casual styling for special occasions is no longer a problem with a human hair wig. A human hair wig will also last longer than a traditional synthetic wig because of how they are made.

 

At Wigs and Hair Solutions, we help our clients with their new human hair wig, as well as wig maintenance year-round. No matter your reasons for needing a human hair wig, our stylists treat each client with care to ensure they receive the best service and highest quality wig. We will discuss your hair loss, your lifestyle, and your preferences before customizing a human hair wig that will give you back your life and confidence.

Ways to Prevent Hair Loss

Monday, December 1st, 2014

For some of us, hair loss is inevitable. For others, hair loss can be prevented. Either way, there are steps most of us can take to either prevent or at least slow down the hair loss process.

  1. Eating healthy is a great way to not only stay healthy overall, but prevent or slow down hair loss. Consume foods that have high levels of the following: biotin, protein, vitamin C, iron, and zinc. If you find you aren’t consuming enough of these vitamins and minerals, consider adding a supplement to your diet.
  2. Wash your hair on a regular basis. This will keep your scalp clean while also giving the illusion of more volume should you find yourself experiencing hair loss already.
  3. Avoid dying your hair excessively to keep hair follicles healthy. If you choose to dye your hair, keep coloring jobs spaced from 6 to 8 weeks.
  4. Never use a hair brush while your hair is wet. Brushing wet hair will only cause breakage and increase hair loss. If you must detangle your hair while wet, reach for a wide-toothed comb rather than a brush.
  5. Avoid the excessive use of hair ties and clips when styling your hair. These accessories could cause hair breakage when used excessively. When pulling up hair, never pull too tight.
  6. Keep the use of heated products to a minimum. When able, avoid the use of hair dryers, heat rollers, curling irons, and flat irons.
  7. When drying hair, avoid rubbing your hair excessively with a towel. Instead, allow your hair to air dry, or simply pat your hair with a clean towel.
  8. If you choose to use hair rollers for curl, avoid wrapping your hair too tightly.
  9. Try your best to manage your levels of stress.
