Putting on & securing your wig

The first time your wig is worn from new it is best to gently shake wig to open the fibres that have been flattened due to the packaging. At this point it is also best to try setting the velcro adjusters to the halfway position, these are located at the back nape area of the wig near the manufacture labels.

1) For smooth flat styles gently brush the fibres of the wig with our  styling brush, Order Code: AC0500 to achieve the desired direction and look, this can be carried out on a polystyrene head, Order Code: AC0232 . The use of a light spray of Control Shape Spray, Order Code: WG/SHA will help hold the hair in position.

2) Styles with movement or curl can be teased out with the use of the same styling brush, Order Code: AC0500  and then finished by finger styling with a more liberal application of the Control Shape Spray, Order Code: WG/SHA to help maintain your style.

3) Once the dressing of the wig is completed carefully remove the wig from the polystyrene head, start by holding the wig in front of your face with the label positioned (the back of the wig) closest to your face. Next, slide the wig into place by placing it over your head in a front to back motion until the label rests at the very back of your neck. Make sure that you have positioned the wig so that the two ear tabs are aligned equally in front of your ears and feel level from side to side by checking this you can ensure that you have not inadvertently turned the wig sideways when placing on the head. Finally check that the front hairline of the wig is in the correct position to that which your own hairline would start from and that the wig feels seated comfortably, finish by lightly finger styling or brushing into the final style.

4) If you have the wig positioned correctly and it still feels too loose or too tight you can remove the wig and adjust the fasteners at the nape of the wig until you achieve the correct comfort and security. For those wearers with total hairloss we also recommend the use of under wig comfort liners, Order Code AC022BA this Bamboo rich product will help alleviate any irritation and provide a soft natural feel against the skin. For those wearers with hair that needs containing we suggest the use of a hair retainer, Order Code AC022BE which helps prevent the wig from slipping on your existing hair. Both products help prevent oils from the scalp being transferred to the base of the wig and thus prolong the wearing of the wig prior to its need to be washed.

5) If you still feel the wig is too loose, or just needs a little extra holding power for added security, here are a few options to help 'hold' the wig in place.
If you have some hair of your own then the use of snappy comb locs, Order Code: AC0200BR sewn to the underside of the wig will then lock onto your own hair. For those with no hair we recommend the use of a medical quality double sided wig tape, Order Code: ACT5 which adheres to the scalp and wig, also available are precut curved shaped tapes, Order Code: AC009 these are ready to use without the need to be cut off a roll . If you intend using tapes, the wig must have a built in skin like taping area for the tape to be fixed to, most monofilament wigs are manufactured with these built in, however, if you have a machine made wig you can always sew a Polyurethane skin type patch Order Code: AC0172 in the front of the wig as this provides the foundation to accept the double sided tape.

Positioning your wig and getting the exact placement for the most natural look takes time and practice, after a few attempts you will find it becomes second nature and you will soon gain confidence in your new hair.



Wigs made of synthetic fibres may well experience fibre friction, the extent of this depends on the length of the wig and the environment in which the wig is subjected to. Fibre friction is not a fault but a natural occurrence in synthetic wig products and will increase with wear.

Natural head movement allows the fibres to rub together or rub against other synthetic materials being worn, this creates a static charge in the fibre which causes the ends to frizz and in some cases tangle. The longer the hair the more prevalent the problem. Fibre friction is usually confined to the underside of the wig and the ends of the fibre and can start to occur from the first day the wig is worn.

Ways of reducing fibre friction.
1) Ensure no synthetic garments are in contact with the wig when being worn.
2) Use Revive conditioning spray regularly in the areas most vulnerable to fibre friction (underneath the back of the wig and in the neckline).
3) Allow the natural drying of synthetic wigs and always use a spray conditioner prior to brushing out the wig.
